Surplus Goods quest guide
Players should know that completing the Back Door quest will unlock the Surplus Goods quest in Tarkov. When you take up the quest, the Mechanic tells you that he has decided to get involved with military electronics and that it is a promising business.
“And the army, as you know, has the most secure communication: digital encryptions, GPS, GLONASS and all kinds of other things. So anyway, I've got info about some device on Reserve, usually seen in workshops, I think it's used in machinery, it's some kind of control and navigation block. I want you to find this block and bring it to me. Would be interesting to see what it has inside of it. I'll reward you of course,” he promises.
The two objectives of the quest are:
Obtain the MBT Integrated Navigation System on Reserve
Hand over the navigation complex to the Mechanic
But before getting started, you need an RB-ST key. It is the key that unlocks a door in the repair warehouses of the Repair Point Buildings on Reserve. It can be found in the following locations:
Pockets and bags of Scavs
If you finish the quest titled Spa Tour - Part 7, you will receive the RB-ST key as a reward.
For the Surplus Goods quest, players need to get their hands on the MBI Integrated Navigation System and extract out of Reserve safely. This item is located in a locked room in the bigger of the two garage buildings at the repair center (white knight building) on Reserve. This is the room that you need to unlock with the RB-ST key. Once you enter the room, you can find the navigation system inside a wooden crate in the back left.
