YouTuber Pestily has revealed his version of how to level up quickly in Escape from Tarkov.

There are a lot of rewards in the flea market, which requires players to reach a certain level to unlock them.

In the recent patch 0.12.4 EFT raised the required rank from 5 to 15.

Before this update, the flea market required 9,508 experience to unlock. Now it takes 42,048 experience.

And the community wasn’t happy about it, so Battlestate decreased it to level 10.

YouTuber and Escape from Tarkov guru have shared some quick tips to level up.


Farming PMCs & Scavengers on Factory

In his “1-10 Levelling Guide” YouTube video he mentioned Factory as the most crucial location to rank up fast.

He justifies his statement saying This map is the smallest in the game and offers a great chance for stacks of experience.

There’s a simple method for bagging EXP here: load-in, kill every PMC (player character) and every AI scavenger. With five other opponents on the map, and “around 10-20 scavs that will respawn,” that’s a bucketload of kills.

“If you are an experienced player, this is absolutely the best way you can level up to rank 10,” Pestily explained. “If you do a Factory raid, kill every player and scav, you’re probably walking out with between 10,000-15,000 experience.”

Considering 42k is the target, being able to run just four Factory raids to hit level 10 is “fairly quick,” Pestily added. That doesn’t mean it’s the easiest method, however. You have to be fairly good already to blow through two dozen kills in 20 minutes.

“When you’re just starting out, particularly after a wipe, you won’t have the best gear and meds for this, so you can’t do it consistently,” Pestily warned. “Not everyone is going to be able to do this one… but it does work really well.”

The “easier” level-up method for new players

Well, the method above discussed by Pestily will not work for new players, but the EFT guru does have some other tactics for new players.

“The very first thing you should be doing is running Factory. Not to kill players or scavs, but to find 3Ms,” Pestily said.

According to Pestily, you must set these three locations as your top priority to drop.

The main office with the safe, the scaffolding above Factory’s overpass, and the big shipping container beneath the overpass.

“Your main objectives are these 3M armors. If you find one, get the heck out of there. This is a pure run-through. If you don’t, kill some scavs, loot a little, and then leave. You’ll get two or three thousand experience every time like this,” he said.

This armor goes towards Skier’s ‘Supplier’ quest, which dolls out 3,300 experience. From here, it’s quests “until you hit that magic number,” Pestily explained. There’s an order you can do it in as well, he added.

Best Level 1-10 quests, in order

  • Supplier ⁠— Level 5 Skier quest (3,300 EXP)
  • Debut ⁠— Level 1 Prapor quest (600 EXP)
  • The Extortionist ⁠— Level 7 Skier quest (3,200 EXP)
  • Checking ⁠— Level 2 Prapor quest (800 EXP)
  • Shootout Picnic ⁠— Level 3 Prapor quest (2,000 EXP)
  • Stirrup ⁠— Level 8 Skier quest (4,700 EXP)

This was the Pestily guide for both experienced and new players to acquire enough experience to unlock rewards in the flea market.

Now you know How to level up quickly in Escape from Tarkov go and have fun.
