Escape from Tarkov: The Extortionist Quest Guide

Escape From Tarkov

The Extortionist is the second task you can get from Skier in Escape from Tarkov. You need to be level 7 to receive this task. The mission takes place on the Customs map and requires you to find hidden cargo that Skier wants.

Customs Map Escape from Tarkov

The first thing you need to do is find a key on a dead body. The body is north of the RUAF roadblock on the east side of the river, near the bottom of the map. When you search the body and find the key, go to a Cabin to the north of the gas station. You don’t need the keys to finish the task, but they make it a lot easier.

When you have the keys, head east into the main storage complex. It is a good idea to take the route hugging the south wall of the complex, then move into the storage area when you reach the train bridge.

The location of the key is on the map above marked by a red arrow, and the cabin location is the red square. When you get the documents you need from the Cabin, extract and then hand the documents to Skier to finish the task. You lose the item if you die before extraction, so make leaving your top priority after you pick it up.

Upon completion of the task, you will receive the following rewards:

  • 3200 XP
  • Skier Rep
  • 500 Dollars
  • Vepr AKM/VPO-209 366TKM Carbine
  • 3x Izhmash AK mags, 30 round 7.62×39 AK
