Escape From Tarkov is an upcoming hardcore shoot-and-loot game from Battlestate Games. Players will tough it out across Tarkov to acquire the best and most valuable loot they can, and the game can feel rather ruthless considering how methodical and patient it requires players to be. Tarkov has a range of maps to play on, some being more intense than others, and the latest addition is the Lighthouse map.
In this guide, we have explained all there is to find and look out for around Lighthouse.
What is Lighthouse?
The Lighthouse is Tarkov's most recent map, and the first brand-new map in over two years (at the time of writing). This does mean that there isn't much information on the map as yet, with Tarkov players still exploring it and finding where the best loot is, but the map seems to promise to be a fun one.
The Lighthouse map is similar to Customs in the sense that it has multiple spawn points for players, and there can be up to 12 players at a time.
The Lighthouse map itself has a couple of things that players will want to look out for. First, there's a considerable amount of a loot lying around. Whether this is to incentivise players trying out the new map while little info about it is available, we don't know, but it's great nonetheless. Secondly, there are landmines and out-of-bounds snipers that players need to be wary of. These reside around the Water Treatment Plant, so players who approach the plant will need to be incredibly cautious.
One of the most interesting aspects of this new map is the fact that a new AI faction has been introduced alongside it: Rogues. Rogues are former USEC operatives that act like Raiders. They can typically be found around the Water Treatment Plant and are incredibly tough opponents to come against. If your PMC is a USEC, they will leave you alone. However, if you're a Bear, or you're a USEC with a Bear in your Squad, Rogues will not take kindly to this and will attack.
Many players on the Lighthouse map have been looking to squad up while players explore the new area. Therefore, be cautious of opposing squads and be sure to turn VOIP on to communicate with others, in case anyone also wishes to squad up with you.
Across Tarkov's Lighthouse map, there are thirteen Extraction points where players can make their escape safely with their loot. As with most of the maps in Escape From Tarkov, not all Extraction Points are always available, some need players to meet specific requirements beforehand, and some have limited uses.
Here are all the Extraction points across the Lighthouse map:
