How to find an extraction point in Escape from Tarkov

The raids in Escape From Tarkov are incredibly stressful, but knowing how to get out safely can help relieve some of the tension. If you’re a new player, however, you may not completely understand the process of extraction, but once you get the hang of it, you’ll be able to plan your movements and strategies around your desired extraction point and get out with that sweet loot much more often.

Raids in Escape from Tarkov are a timed experience. Jump into a match and you’ll see the message “Find an extraction point” in the top right of the screen. You need to extract within this time limit, so be sure to check it as soon as you join a game. Press the O key twice to bring this message back up at any time.

To extract in Escape from Tarkov you must reach a certain point on the map and stand by it until an extraction timer counts down. Where do you need to go? That depends on several details including where you spawned and whether you’re playing as a PMC or Scav. Don’t worry, as long as you understand the basics, you’ll be fine. Here’s how it works:

Underneath the “Find an extraction point” message you should see a list of “EXFIL” locations. These are your extraction points, and there are two kinds of them. Some will have question marks next to them, while others won’t.

Extraction points that don’t have question marks are guaranteed locations that will always be open during the match. These are surefire places you can head to if you want to extract, but expect other players to be making their way there as well.

Extraction points with question marks have restrictions tied to them. Some are only usable once, meaning only the first player or squad to arrive there can extract. Others are only available at certain times during the match. Some extraction points require you to have found a key to access them. Finally, Vehicular extraction points (typically denoted V-Ex) cost money and often take a long time to extract from. Stay tuned to and we will be the first one to inform you all the latest.
