Capturing Outposts Quest in Escape from Tarkov Explained
When you take up the Capturing Outpost quest, Prapor tells you that he was informed about how the PMCs have captured several Scav bases in the region and that there are tons of goods there. “Can you help the old soldier? Kill those PMCs so that my dogs could grab the loot without any issues. There are three bases in total: the big fortified building on the construction site on Customs, the former EMERCOM medical unit on Woods, and the river pier on Shoreline. Clear the places out and let me know when it's done,” adds the trader.
Players must be at least Level 42 to start this Elimination task. So in short, the objectives for this one are:
Eliminate eight PMC operatives at the Scav base on Customs
Eliminate eight PMC operatives at the Scav base on Woods
Eliminate eight PMC operatives at the pier on Shoreline
Note that any kill that happens outside the Scav bases (or the marked area in the above-seen images) does not count toward this quest. So, make sure that the PMCs are in the marked areas for the kills to count towards the objective.
