Health and injuries in Escape from Tarkov Escape from Tarkov guide, tips

Escape from Tarkov doesn't only have the standard health bar. In addition, the developers have created a special health and damage system, where each damaged body part has a different effect on the gameplay. There are also several effects that have a negative impact on the hero. Read this page to learn how injured limbs affect the game, and check the negative effects and ways to treat them with medkits.

Impact of injured body parts on the gameplay

Injured body parts affect your character. - Health and injuries in Escape from Tarkov - Basics - Escape from Tarkov Guide
Injured body parts affect your character.

Each body part can be damaged - by getting shot or falling from a height. Damaged body parts affect your character - you may have problems with moving or aiming. Limbs can be broken or completely destroyed (this happens when the durability of a given body part drops to zero). The effect of a given limb on the gameplay can be found in the table below.

Body part

A limb's condition and impact on the character

Head and chest

Can't be broken

Destroyed: causes immediate death

Left arm

Fractured: reloading weapon and starting aiming takes 50% more time. Using items and searching corpses is 67% slower

Destroyed: in addition to all the effects caused by breaking this limb, the damage inflicted to the left arm will be transferred to other body parts

Right arm

Fractured: reloading weapon and starting aiming takes 67% more time. Using items and searching corpses is 50% slower

Destroyed: in addition to all the effects caused by breaking this limb, the damage inflicted to the right arm will be transferred to other body parts
