Escape from Tarkov players lament new recoil changes and upcoming microtransactions

Today’s Escape from Tarkov update hasn’t gone down well with fans. Among the large list of alterations, the recoil of a number of weapons has been changed, and it’s also been confirmed that certain microtransactions are on the way, too.

Patch Notes Changes

To be exact, as per the patch notes, “the recoil parameters for pistols, shotguns, and the SKS carbine” have been adjusted. Players on Reddit have been questioning why the changes were made in the first place, with one dubbing pistols as “basically unusable” with the new alterations.
