After the new wipe that made its way into Escape from tarkov on 28th December, players have been trying to grind in the game and have been completing quests given by traders to reap rewards, experience points, and reputation. Broadcast – Part 1 Quest is the starting point for a series of quests under trader Sergey Arsenyevich Samoylov, known by his alias “Mechanic.” Once you finish this quest, you will have the opportunity to finish the other Broadcast quests and also do other ones offered by Mechanic. This particular quest happens on Lighthouse, the eighth location that was added to the game.
Here’s everything you need to know about Broadcast – Part 1 quest in Escape from Tarkov.
Broadcast – Part 1 Quest Guide
When you take up this quest from the Mechanic, he says that he does not really understand anything in life and that he heard something about a live broadcast in the city somewhere. He adds, “They say that someone is performing surgeries and filming it on their camera. I’d understand if it was an actually good willed doctor helping people. I would even understand if there was an organ trade, although that in itself is disgusting. But tell me, why stream this? Is this a kink for some perverted oligarchs? I honestly don’t have an answer. But I do know that this broadcast must be shut down. Can you put a jammer near them?”
The Broadcast – Part 1 quest objectives are:
For this task, you will need the Operating Room key. This can be found in the pockets and bags of Scavs as well as in jackets. However, that being said, it is a rare key. It can sometimes also be bought from the flea market.
Firstly, you will have to go to the Water Treatment Plant on Lighthouse for this quest and enter Building 1. Your PMC will start just outside Building 1 and as you enter it, you will have to hug the right-side wall and walk all the way straight till you find a door. This door leads you to the Operating Room where you will use the key.
Once you enter the room, you will immediately be prompted to plant the signal jammer anywhere in the room. It is a 10-second timer and if you happen to die while planting, you will have to start from scratch. However, the good news is, if you successfully plant the jammer, the Broadcast – Part 1 quest will get auto completed and you will not have to survive an extract from the raid.
The rewards for completing the quest are as follows:
