Escape From Tarkov Woods Map Guide 2020

Here’s a look at the Escape From Tarkov Woods map:

Woods is around a medium-large sized map great for long-range battles. If you are looking to practice your sniper rifle, this is a solid map choice. On the west side of the map, you will find a railroad and many rock formations. The east side will contain a long straight path through the map from north to south. Seeing this path is a good indication you’ve spawned on the east side.

Right in the middle is a big lumber yard with many scav spawns, and it’s a natural choke point as many players pass through here. Look out for snipers around the lumberyard in the middle. There is a long rock formation with someone almost always hanging out there.

Sniper rock in the south is probably the most popular sniper spot on this map, as it will provide excellent vision across a lot of the map. If you are new, you may want to explore these areas to utilize them or defend them.

If you spawn on the west, you may find some people around Factory and the shack. On the east side, you will find people fighting over the rocks up north for sniping positions. Note that on a clear day, you can snipe across the body of water in the middle.
