Escape From Tarkov Hideout Guide (Upgrade Order & Effects)

The Hideout is the best way to measure your progress in Escape From Tarkov. Leveling up your traders can make it easier to buy equipment, and leveling up your skills can help you win fights, but the Hideout just flat out helps you to make money through crafting, bribing scavs, and mining Bitcoins.

Upgrading it can seem troublesome though, and if you’re tired of flicking back and forth between the different upgrade requirements, here’s a list of how to upgrade the Hideout, what each upgrade requires, and what they offer.

The list is sorted into an order that should allow you to construct each unit down the list. If you can’t afford to upgrade something, don’t worry about it and keep going down the list. The only time you should stop and look back at the items you’ve skipped is once you hit an upgrade that requires a previous station to be built.
