The Minibus quest in Escape from Tarkov is given by trader Arshavir Sarkisovich Abramyan, known by his alias “Ragman.” For the Minibus quest, you will have to go to Interchange, the fifth location that was added to the game by publisher Battlestate Games. This is a completion quest and requires you to mark three minibuses on the location using a particular marker. Additionally, the Minibus quest requires you to be at least level 24 before you can take it up.
Here’s everything you need to know about the Minibus Quest in Escape from Tarkov given by Ragman.
Minibus Quest on Interchange explained
Firstly, to finish this quest, you need to carry three MS2000 Markers with you. This item needs to be placed on each Minibus and once placed, the MS2000 Marker is removed from your inventory.
When you begin this task, Ragman informs you that he has to deliver stuff quite frequently, and carrying everything as a mule is hardly an option anymore. He notes that all vehicles are dead after some kind of EMP strike during the conflict and only cars that come from outside can still run. “There are bound to be some minibusses at the parking lot at the Interchange, mark at least three of them with beacons. My mechanics will examine them in detail, maybe there is a chance of success if I procure some electronics from the outside. Just do it right, don’t need no pieces of trash. Look for the yellow ones, you’ll figure it out,” he says.
The quest objectives are:
The first yellow minibus is located southwest of the mall at the container lot. Whereas, the other two are in the western parking garage on Interchange. The second one can be located at the transition from section B to section C, near the blocked-off down-ramp. The last one is near section C, very close to the “Saferoom Exfil” extraction and the hole in the wall that connects the western with the eastern parking garages.
Note that you can buy additional MS2000 Markers from Prapor if needed and it is recommended that you keep the markers in the special slots or pouch so they are not lost in the event of your death.
