Besides your common currency in Escape From Tarkov like Roubles, Bitcoin (BTC) is also widely popular in the EFT community. But the question is: where do I find bitcoins? Don’t fret because we’ve got you covered with the latest guide on where exactly you can find the ever-elusive crypto-currency and how to get them in a speedy and efficient manner.
What Are Escape from Tarkov Bitcoins?
Bitcoin, or BTC for short, is an item in Escape from Tarkov that’s the physical equivalent of the Bitcoin crypto-currency. This Escape from Tarkov bitcoins can be used to trade for certain weapons, armor, and items from the traders like the Therapist, Mechanic, and more. They are considered to be rare due to the fact that you can sometimes go on multiple runs and still not encounter them. If you do find some, they’re mostly in very small quantities. They are often so well-hidden away from plain sight that you’ll have to check every nook and cranny if you’re really determined to get them.
Where to Farm Bitcoins?
You’ve been grinding all day long and have looted every possible room and safe there is, yet you still have no luck finding any bitcoins at all! Well first off, the place you’re trying to find BTC is an important factor. To find the most bitcoins, we recommend you go to the Shoreline, the largest map in Escape from Tarkov. The Shoreline is filled with lots of tall buildings, each with reasonable quantities of BTC to find. You will need keys in order to open some rooms in the buildings since that’s where the BTCs are and nowhere else.
While there are other maps for players to loot, the Shoreline is your best bet to find bitcoins in a single run. East side room 310 is notably the best spot in the map, but you’ll need a key to get inside. To get the key, you need to go to the trailer park on the red customs office, from there there’s a lone bus. Go inside the bus and once you’re there you can search for the key. Although the spawns are randomized, the key spawns in the bus most of the time so that’s the best spot to go. Once you’re inside the east wing room 310, you can easily find the BTC on the table. East 222 also has bitcoins for you to get, specifically in a box on the bathroom door. Room 220 also has BTC right along the back right corner in a box. However, if you want to go into these rooms they all need keys. Overall, the east wing resort is the ideal go-to place for rare items.
Are There Other Ways to Get EFT Bitcoins?
Besides going into rooms, safes are also treasure troves of Bitcoins since you’ll automatically find something valuable in them. The Factory, for example, has a safe on the 3rd floor inside the office and there’s a high chance of BTCs spawning there. BTCs can also be found hidden in items like the pockets of jackets and scavs as well.
If you’re not really fond of searching Bitcoins the whole time, doing weapon quests or any quest really for the mechanic is a great alternative since a significant amount of his quests rewards you with various quantities of the currency.M
