Read on to learn about reserve map extraction points in Escape From Tarkov and how to find them.

In the world of Escape from Tarkov, Reserve is the most recent addition to the map pool. The extraction points on this map are particularly intriguing, each with its unique set of qualifications or conditions. The following guide will walk you through the different extraction points and how to navigate them.

Understanding Reserve Map Extraction Points in Escape from Tarkov

Let me walk you through a visualization of the reserve map extraction points in Escape from Tarkov. PMC exits are highlighted in blue, while Scav exits are in red. There’s only one PMC-exclusive exit on Reserve, along with multiple Scav-only or shared exits. Below the map, I’ll delve into the details of the PMC exits, giving you tips on what to watch out for and the requirements for each one.


1. Armored Train

Prerequisites: None. Single-use. Arrives approximately 25–35 minutes into the raid. Not always accessible.

The Armored Train extraction point, available to both PMCs and Scavs, is a unique exit strategy. This extraction point appears at the map’s center approximately 30 minutes into the raid and only remains available for 7 minutes. It signals its departure with a one-minute warning horn, followed by two honks before closing its doors. As long as you’re inside the train when it leaves, you’ll successfully extract, regardless of whether you’re friend or foe. It’s a noisy exit, but quite a thrilling one!

2. Bunker Hermetic Door

Prerequisites: Within 4 minutes, the lever in a marked shack must be pulled.

The Bunker Hermetic Door, another extraction point open to both PMCs and Scavs, requires unlocking before exit. To open this route, you’ll need to locate and activate the lever in the shack indicated on the map (positioned southwest of the helicopter). Once activated, you have a 4-minute window to reach the extraction point before the lever resets. The entrance to the needed Bunker is on the east end of the western set of bunker entrances. Look for a door with a light over it.

3. Cliff Descent

Prerequisites: Paracord, Red Rebel Ice Pick, no equipped armor vest.

The Cliff Descent, an extraction point exclusive to PMCs, operates similarly to the Woods map Cliff Descent/Mountain Stash extraction point. To exit here, you must possess the Paracord and Red Rebel Ice Pick. The extraction point is located near the radio tower in the north, just behind the main building and the metal stairway leading to it. To start the extraction, remove any armored vest you’re wearing, then approach the fenced corner with a lone tree in it.

4. Scav Lands

Prerequisites: Must have a friendly PMC and Scav present.

Contrary to what its name suggests, the Scav Lands extraction point is available to both PMCs and Scavs. The catch is that both a Scav and a PMC must be present to initiate the extraction. You can either team up with a friend or form an alliance during the match (at your own risk) to try to extract here. This extraction point is hidden in a small alcove with a pile of sandbags and an armored vehicle, located towards the southwest of the compound.

5. Sewer Manhole

Prerequisites: No backpack equipped.

The Sewer Manhole extraction point, available to both PMCs and Scavs, is likely to be your last resort. It is accessible throughout the match, but you must not have a backpack equipped for extraction. Given that this severely limits the amount of loot you can take out, this extraction point is only recommended if you have no other options or if you’re a Scav with a high-quality firearm. The Manhole cover is situated between a truck and a separated trailer part in the fenced area indicated on the map, nearest to the radar station. Simply walk up to it to initiate a fast extraction.

Additional Scav Extracts

  • Depot Hermetic Door
  • Hole In The Fence By The Mountains
