Traders are your go-to people whenever you want to buy or sell some items. Escape from Tarkov trading isn’t new, but new players might find it a tad complicated. It’s not just about buying Escape from Tarkov items, but building good relationships between both buyers and sellers. Here, we’ll take a look at just how can you can gain reputation from the traders and hopefully even avail of some awesome discounts in the long run.

Level Up Your Traders

Leveling up your traders is one of the key components to having tighter relationships with fellow traders. There are other requirements which all have to be filled in order to level up. All the requirements that you need to accomplish are all shown in the top right corner of any given trader’s screen. In order to level up, you are going to have to boost your reputation (as well as spend some cash) on any specific trader you want. The reward you’ll be getting when leveling up is that you are going to be able to buy better gear from them in down the road.

Leveling Up Cash Spend & Reputation

For Skier, strip down on guns and sell what you can to him. You can also sell some armor and helmets to him to speed up the process, but once he gets to level two, you can start modding guns like AKs so that he’ll be easier to further level up. For The Therapist, you should sell dogtags, meds, and valuables. Buying meds from her is also good for leveling up as well. And if you have any other items, just sell the rest to Praporas he’s the easiest to level up.

To get Ragman to level up is a bit of a challenge as, out of all the traders, he requires the most grind. Sell him helmets, armor, and maybe some rigs so go along with it. When you’ve leveled up therapist to level 2, you can opt to sell your dogtags and valuables to him instead of the therapist. You will lose a bit of money this way since the selling price for the therapist is higher but it will be worth it in the end since Ragman is one of the more useful traders. You can also sell Fort armor and Altyns to him which he buys at a considerably higher rate.

For the Peacekeeper, you don’t have to sell anything to him, simply buy Dollars off him and you’re done. To gain reputation with the Mechanic, simply ask him to repair items to slowly start to level him while you worm your way into the traders’ good side. When you’ve completely leveled up Prapor, just switch over to the Mechanic sell whatever items the others have rejected.

Do Quests

Quests are an integral part of gaining reputation. Escape from Tarkov will give you specific quests per trader in order to level them up. For the cash spent requirement, you can easily buy and sell items to the same trader and both the buying and selling amount will be added to the cash spent requirement. Some traders pay more money for certain items.

Conclusion Gaining reputation and leveling up your Escape from Tarkov trading may be time-consuming, but it’s worth it because you’ll get better and cheaper Escape from Tarkov items in the process. Buying and selling is the name of the game here, and you have to be wise with regards towhom to sell specific items to. Prioritize the right traders first to make your life easier. Everything will progress accordingly.



  1. Die Konstruktive Kritik eines enttäuschten Spielers:

    Ich finde es wahnsinnig traurig, dass das Spiel ansonsten nix anderes zu bieten hat außer Waffen und meist kurze Schusswechseln, die nicht lange für Spannung sorgen. Man könnte sagen: Die Entwickler haben zwar die Base und den Hardcore-Aspekt löblich gemeistert, jedoch den Spaßfaktor völlig vergessen. So machte mir das Spiel nach nur einem Tag keine Freude mehr, sondern Frust pur. Das Prinzip mit dem Verlieren der Items hört sich auf den ersten Blick interessant an, verdirbt jedoch jeden Wert guter Waffen. Alles gute wird so oder so gelootet (Adios versichertes Inventar!). Selten schafft man eine Runde, also wieso Waffen großartig Upgraden und Geld und Mühe reinstecken, wenn die Ausrüstung nach 10-20 Minuten doch eh wieder weg ist? Nebenbei gibt es nichts, was dem Spieler Motivation gibt. Heutzutage muss ein Spiel dem “Gamer” mehr bieten als ein extrem ausbaufähiger Spiel-Modus und schöne Waffen. Da muss einfach mehr gemacht werden. Mehr gut ausgeführte Modis, mehr Abwechslung, mehr Spaß.

    Nun liegt es an den Devs, ob sie das Problem erkennen und das Gameplay und die Mechanik ändern, oder das Spiel weiter in den Abgrund rutschen lassen.
