Can of Sprats: What does it reference?
If you have played Escape from Tarkov, you will know that the Collector quest is the last hurdle before the Kappa Secure Container. This quest requires players to find all streamer-related items with ‘found in raid’ status. Additionally, to unlock the Collector quest, players will need to have completed most of the Tarkov quests with only a few exceptions and must also reach a high PMC character level. Every single streamer item is required for the final quest "The Collector" to get your hands on the biggest safety container in the game: The Kappa container.
The Can of Sprats is one such streamer item and it has the word “Alkonafter” written on it. It is a reference to the Russian Escape from Tarkov streamer called alconafter. This item is one of the most commonly found ones in all of the stream items list. It can regularly be found as a loose food spawns at locations like Customs or Woods.
The description of the item reads, “Delicacy sprats from Alconafter company.”
Interestingly, streamer alconafter was last three years ago and is verified on the platform with 15.4K followers.

So checking these during your raids as you complete other activities on the path to the Collector will ensure you have most of them in hand by the time you unlock the quest. The quest also requires all items to be found in raids. Therefore, your best bet is to find the streamer items while doing other quests in raids and extract safely with the item.
