Here’s every item banned from the ‘Escape From Tarkov’ Flea Market in 12.12

Patch 12.12 has arrived in Escape From Tarkov and introduced heaps of new content and big changes. One of these changes included in patch 12.12 means that certain items can no longer be traded on the Flea Market, which is used for players to buy and sell their in-raid finds.

Many of these items could be classed as high-end gear in Escape From Tarkov – much of the listed ammo, for example, is the go-to choice for players looking to penetrate tough armour. Speaking of which, much of that armour is now banned from the Flea Market, so in general players will likely take a bit longer to access huge loadouts. The fact that Labs keycards can no longer be bought and sold also means that players will have a much tougher time getting into the map, making the high-loot area even tougher to access.

Combined with changes to inertia and weapon overheating, these restrictions are likely to further dissuade players from Escape From Tarkov‘s last meta, which revolved around people buying expensive sets of armour and fully-automatic weapons then quickly rushing their opponents. It’s fair to assume that now, fans can expect this wipe to revolve around slower-paced combat.

In other news, that’s far from the only change for Escape From Tarkov in patch 12.12. As well as a full wipe, the update has brought the Lighthouse map, voice chat, a long-awaited inertia rework and much more.
