What This Guide Is About

Ghost of tabor is a unique game in itself more or less matching the games escape from tarkov and Pavlov to form a love child of some sort so I’ve decided to write a guide on playing the game and having fun at the start of the game, this guide will cover many of the features the game has to offer at the moment as well as some tactics to use, tricks and tips as well as helping you stay calm in intense situations.

Safe House

The safe house is essentially your home so treat it as if it was your home.

To start you will be placed here with key cards which also depends on which game version you bought (DLC) if you just bought the game on its own you will have 4 cards these cards are color coded to certain doors around the bunker you’ll have the doors color on the keypad all you need to do is place the card inside it.

The armoury This is where you’ll be almost 90% of the time if its to store guns, make a kit for your next run, make ammo or just to dump stuff and run off to the next raid, I recommend keeping this place as clean as possible, it’ll make your life easier and give you a sense of achievement, in this room you’ll have access to the 2nd gun room as well this will be a great place to put higher end guns that you don’t feel comfortable to use yet, these rooms will also allow you to store up to 11 backpacks as well as 9 vests and 9 helmets, The peg boards/weapon storage wall, can store guns, pistols knives and magazines as well, they will help you a ton on storage,


This room has a ton of storage for your foods and drinks, you’ll have access to this room at the start of the game, it can be used to store other things as well not just food and drinks, you can use it store your ammo boxes, spare mags or guns if you ran out of room in the armoury.

Trader room

This is a very important room you’ll be here to collect stuff from the traders when you go to the market you’ll have access to quick buying favourites so it saves you time rather than going back to market and buying the stuff again, the room also allows you to turn in mission based items for your trader missions as well as has some minor storage areas and a mannequin which you can use to store a vest on it.

Shooting range

This room will help you test your guns range and accuracy you can also find out which guns suit your needs here as you’ll be in the safety of your own home and be allowed shoot at targets.

Weapon Systems

Weapon styles is a way of determining a weapons use and reload, the 2 most common types are on this section.

In this game there are 2 main weapon systems which will be refereed to M4 and AK (Doesn’t apply to handguns)

M4 System

This weapon system is commonly known for allowing rail mounts, sight mounts and fore grips straight out the box and doesn’t need additional modifications to allow these attachments to be used while you can add more stuff to it for adding more to the weapon its not really needed but its there to be used in case you are wanting more bang for your buck on a weapon, this type of system also uses a charging handle located at the back of the gun unlike the AK system.

AK system

This weapon system is much harder to use as it doesn’t allow modifications right away so you’ll have to find mounts for the gun before you are even able to put stuff on the gun these rails mounts can be used to put sights on the gun, though some AK systems do allow this feature right away it’ll be harder to get to those guns as they are high end that can only be earned through loot rooms or trader progression, this systems reload style is a under arm reload which is reaching the charging handle on the right side of the gun than the M4 style which is a charging handle at the back.

Pistol systems

Handguns are a mix of styles, you’ll have some with mounting rails and some without, the main ones I know of that allow modifications out of the box is the glock 17 which allows you to put a sight and a under barrel attachment for either a fore grip, laser sight, flash light or angled rails.


This section will help you determine what type of play style you want or mix and match so you are more effective on the field.


This is one thing you’ll need to learn scouting will be a mixture of knowing which buildings have what, locations of Fenix and spawns, this is a effective way of helping you plan loot runs to maximise your trader progression and money as quickly as possible, it will also help giving these places names which you can base off their locations such as docks, underground car park, tower or lighthouse.


This type of tactic is very effective against other players who don’t know the area all that well and can generate you a huge amount of profit in raids, but you’ll need to learn where the most common place is for foot traffic and safe areas to fall back on in case you need a quick get away, you can also hide yourself in trees and bushes as well as windows but make sure you re frame from standing directly in front of the window so you don’t get spotted.

Slow and methodical

This will be a case of being slow on your engagements and keeping your ammo high and you out of harms way you’ll need to be using cover a lot and keeping you enemy at your will if thats by keeping a high ground or having them stuck in a house after you having a fire fight, this method of play style is also great if you decide to try and do role play runs.


These style of playing are great, having a friend by your side always keeping a eye on you as well as theirs can also really help with fire fights as you’ll have someone to keep enemies at your will while one or more of you guys flank them. but playing solo doesn’t mean you don’t have any of that what you do have is a microphone this will help you in many situations such as being pinned down close to enemies you can pretend to have a team mate by telling you ”Friends” the enemies locations forcing them to peel off and give you a opening.

  1. I do agree. I took me a few times to read lines because you would not use periods or commas where needed. I think it would be good advice, if we did not have to try to read between the sentences.

  2. This article is very difficult to read.
    You keep using run on sentences. Get someone to proofread this.
