Sherpa Program

Sherpas are players who help beginners study the main game features and improve their skills to survive the harsh Tarkov environment. This difficult and honorable task falls on the shoulders of the most friendly, patient, and, of course, experienced Tarkov citizens.
Sherpas are volunteers who dedicate their time not only by teaching others but also studying Tarkov themselves, adding to their knowledge of the game. Selfless aid to new players greatly contributes to the growth of the Escape from Tarkov community.
When teaching beginners, sherpas rely on their preferences in the game: location, weapons, equipment, tactical moves, and their unique gaming experience. 

By learning from various sherpas, new players can gain a wide range of experience and choose their own preferred play style. Sherpas also receive a distinctive badge in the game, on the Discord server, and the official forum of the game.

For active involvement and systematic assistance to beginners, sherpas receive an incentive reward as an in-game set of equipment.

Sherpa program rules:

Sherpas don’t receive rewards from players for the completed assistance. 

If a beginner behaves inappropriately, they may be restricted from applying for assistance.

Sherpa has the right to complete the learning process unilaterally if there is a conflict or no mutual understanding between them and the beginner.

Sherpas don’t assist with the “grindy” quests like “Eliminate Killa 100 times”, but they can explain the details of the process and give advice on how to fight bosses.


Sherpas are not employees of Battlestate Games and cannot speak on behalf of the company.
