Steps in completing The Extortionist in Escape From Tarkov

(Optional) Locate the messengers body
(Optional) Find the place where the messenger hid the cargo
Hand over the valuable cargo to Skier
You will first need to get the Unknown key item to unlock the cabin on Customs where the Secure Folder 0048 is located. The required key can be found on a dead Scav located on Customs. Go near Warehouse 17 where you’ll find a bush with the dead scav you need to loot.
The key is a guaranteed spawn for every raid. Look for the ‘Close’ prompt on the scav, which means someone has already looted him. However, do check it anyway since the key may be unlooted.
Once you have the key, head down to the crane yard next to Warehouse 4.
Go to the gray container house here and unlock it using the Unknown key.
Look for the file under the rag on the ground in front of you as you enter.
Once you complete all the objectives, it is important to note that players must extract safely without being killed by enemy players or Scavs. Completing The Extortionist will get you the following rewards:
