  • Tarkov has loads of weapons so obviously we couldn't cover them all in one episode! So Tarkov fans let us know what weapons you want Jonathan to cover next, and if you're lucky we may do a follow up episode! (and yes I totally recorded this gameplay in offline mode because I DON'T HAVE THAT MANY ROUBLES TO WASTE META M4s AND AS VALS OKAY?!)

    • please do the mk -18

    • You could always just use the "Edit Preset" in your stash, as long as you have examined all the mods for weapons. There's some crazy shit you can make with that.

    • Maybe do like a series. Like one episode. All bolt action. Mosin, m700, t5000, Sv98, etc. Another episode. Shotguns etc. etc. Maybe explain to him that the Scav AI is kinda stupid and will walk when being shot at. And a quick overview of how the damage/armor works in the game, just so he has more info.

    • @Arian51 Definitely not the most realistic game of all time but it's pretty sick

    • shot him meta builds !!

  • More Tarkov please!

  • Russian subtitles? please? :D

  • fonderful commentary, more of him plzzzz

  • I love how knowledgeable and aware he is of the gaming aspect of things, it genuinely surprised me (this being the first react video of his I watched). With how popular experts react to "name a thing" in gaming has become in the last couple years, it's refreshing to see an expert who actually understands the gaming side of things and includes that in their commentary!

  • disappointed they didn't model the fuzzy quality of the eotech Lol...

  • Do a video on PUBG please!

  • The muzzle climb is a balancing thing. There is a recoil control skill and you can also compensate with the mouse. Some small details that he couldn’t notice is is the trigger delay on the sv98 and you can fit SR3M mags on the VAL/VSS. And no, the toz is super unpopular.

  • BSG, you heard the guy, buff the Ak-101

  • for fucks sake, he needs to check out hotdogs, horseshoes, and handgrenades

  • Do the same for PUBG :)

  • well the ks23 doesn't fire buckshot it fires 23x75mmr

  • The makarov drum is a real thing is Russia, though it is not widely used nor produced in much quantity. It was made by a Russian inventor that used old PPSH drums and fused it with a makarov magazine to create the drum. It is used by some police forces.

  • I can appreciate him having a nzi war drilling on the left of the table

  • Check the weaponry sounds and handling for Hell Let Loose and Post Scriptum

  • This guy seems to be a gamer! Knows his weapons and his game sense 👍

  • Awesome video!

  • what a nice folk

  • 6:51 *OH GOD HAVE I FELT THAT DOWNSIDE DURING MY SERVICE!* Your brains literally get blown off, when that thing's firing next to you XO

  • Interesting how a nation that doesn't allow its people to have firearms, but they have one of the biggest munitions museums in the world. This video got a dislike from here. Just rediculous.

  • Firearms quality in a fps reviewed by a person living in a country where it's nearly impossible to own a firearm... interesting.

  • Do hunt showdown ! 😁

  • KS 23 is originally designed for crowd control by shooting grenades out of this beauty. it has rifled barrel, which allows to shoot grenades pretty far (tear gas grenades mostly and rubber bullets) any buckshot cartridges or shrapnel won't be effective at distances longer than 25 meters (because of rifled barrel)

  • there is a drum mag for makrov

  • It’s a Russian game... did you really expect to see a AR-15 that makes damage?

  • Can you please, PLEASE, destroy fortnite?

  • please make battlefield 4

  • Would love to see an ep on Receiver 2

  • in america. everything has a drum mag.

  • yuh Val gamers doing over 40 pen with a subsonic round. Much realism

  • I'm not a gun nut by any means, but I always thought what made tarkov special was the attention to detail when it comes to realistic gunplay. Cool to see a guy that knows his stuff verify just how special this game really is.

  • i would like to see csgo

  • Jonathan Ferguson needs to make his own channel!

  • Show this guy Hotdogs Horseshoes & Hand Grenades VR

  • "Are you sure you want to change your username from ZilentKid24 to ZilentMan24?"

  • 1:58 I looked it up and it appears that the makarov does have a drum magazine.

  • “Just because you can doesn’t mean you should” Yes this is true because this parts can make the price on the gun pretty expensive 😂 and someone like me who spends not a lot of time in tarkov can’t afford something like that

    • Get MDR's and other weapons that doesn't require modding at all, just slap a sight on an MDR and you're good to go

  • you hear that tarkov AND rust??!?!? ak spray deductions plz thank YOU!

  • Correction! when he mention those dudes that got shot by the M4 they were scared so much that they dont know how to react Basically almost half of the players have PTSD in this game

  • I really want to see this guy react to Black's spas 12

  • Why didn't they show him the AKMS shooting? I wish an expert would laugh at the "realistic" recoil.

    • well... i can say from experience that it's painful to shoot this one :D this stock hurts a lot. but a simple wood stock does better job at allowing you to control 7.62x39

  • I believe that drum mag is only a thing for the Stetchkin

    • @Tr0lljegeren you’re right I forgot about the PPSH sub machine gun and I wouldn’t know wether they say it in Escape From Tarkov because I’ve never played it but I know the Shpagen drum works on the stetchkin

    • No, it's a Ppsh drum mag that someone welded to a normal makarov mag, it even says so in game if I remember correctly

  • He should look at "Hotdogs, horseshoes and hand grenade"

  • Drum mag for Makarov is basically drum mag for АПС i think cause it has auto mod

  • "modeling, ragdoll, clip through" hold up this guys a gamer

  • "That guy was shrugging off shots" Welcome to Tarkov G, dump a 60 rnd M4 mag into somebody and they're fine, but I'm over here with Slick and fast mt getting chested by Mosins. We call that "getting Tarkoved"

  • Can we get advanced warfare

  • I think the only other game I've played that got the shotgun slugs correct was battlefield bad company 2. They were super realistic with the shotgun slug round.

  • we need a review of the GL 40

  • Surprised that he didn't mention how that PEQ on the side of the MP5 would completely block operation of the charging handle, even though the animation still plays.

  • Do csgo plsssss

  • Do insurgency sandstorm!

  • he forgot Gun-nut rule #247: there's a drum-mag for everything.

  • DAYZ

  • i got a sniper scav at the silo in customs with a saiga 12 loaded with buckshot at 100 meters

  • Are u sure I saw a picture where a russian soldier was holding a Makarov with drum magazine.

  • hmm much sus

  • Bruh,calls him self an expert and doesn’t even know about the makarov drum mags

  • Wow. Just got a P90 chillin' eh? Vibe check much?....

  • Insurgency: Sandstorm is another absolutely fantastic shooter. The audio is arguably better, both in terms of guns but also bullet ricochet, supersonic cracks, in interiors and outside, etc.

  • Russian game... American guns not so good... American guns to much power... if designer make American gun with power... grafic designer go to goolag!!! Just kidding... this is one of the best games out!!! Guns feel amazing

  • Only a man who handles gun for a living can pull off a badger head motif shirt

  • nerf gun joke made me like the vid

  • I post the worst dubs ever!

  • “gun expert” but his country put a ban on guns and knives 😂

    • he runs an armoury

  • So, not only does this BRITISH guy know something about guns (in fact he appears to know everything). But he also knows about "Textures" "Clipping" "Sound Design" and so forth! I'd say the keeper of Firearms & Artillery at the Royal Armouries knows his stuff!

  • Rainbow six Siege gun rewiev PLS.

  • I WANT MORE THIS MAN, CAN DO IT?

  • Yes, the Makarov does indeed have a drum magazine, an 80 round one to be exact.

  • Foldable stock on an AK that has a drum mag: Tarkov sees no problem Foldable stock on an AK that has some MF rubber thing so it has less recoil: Tarkov - WTF YOU CANT JUST DO THAT LET ME PREVENT YOU FROM HAVING A NICE STASH UNTIL YOU PUT THAT OFF

  • Bf4 guns

  • so, with the MP and not being able to see the rounds in the magazine you can if you look at the full mag in any other setting where you would have time to rotate the mag the whole way around. that shot you saw there was just a quick peek and didnt really give you the chance to see that the magazine is in fact double stacked plus the lighting in the factory map make seeing anything of detail pretty difficult as it is.

  • I'd love to see him look at Receiver 2, a game often described as the QWOP of guns

  • A firearms expert from a country that doesn’t even let you have em.

  • Post Scriptum and or Squad

  • *Tarkov devs see this* Also them: WRITE THAT DOWN, WRITE THAT DOWN!!!!!!!!

  • He knows exactly how popular the toz is

  • Makarov drum mag is a real thing

  • The makarov has a drum mag. It's really hard to get it but it exists

  • Oh yeah the first time I played EFT I was blown away by the sounds of the guns being fired in a building or like a high powered rifle outside in the middle of the woods... oh man that echo... you can hear the bullet breaking the sound barrier just like in real life

  • Just clip through the real drum.

  • Gotta say that only his smile will make me click on any video ever! :)

  • "This being a realistic game i suspect the weapon's characteristics to suffer when you got every accessory under the sun attached to your rifle" Yeah, about that...

  • the drum mag isnt real its a modified ppsh magazine

  • Do Metro Exodus!

  • Have you done ARMA3?

  • Of all the guns, I thought Tarkov would have nailed the Kalashnikov.

  • “Just because you can, doesn’t mean you should” Words to live by.

    • i say it to my self when ever i see a place i could fit my finger in

  • Battlefield 1 please

  • @battlestategames comments? Changes to come as a result of this video?

  • I'd love to see him react to the AKM VPO 209 and see what he has to say about it

  • they should have used real players instead of scavs since the 'shrugging off shots' has always been poor of scavs

  • I feel like this guy would like DayZ

  • Jonathan is so cool

  • Would be great to see him react to the actual Weapon Customization itself, as it's really really indepth in terms of what you can do and how far you can even go, dismantling a gun to it's most basic mechanical parts, just to reassemble it with other parts.

  • Firearms expert doesn't know if they make a drum mag for makarov indeed they did sir

  • Feel the need to add this over the comment regarding "loosely holding" the AK-101 and the muzzle climb of the weapon: Tarkov has a skill development system. You have to actively practice and get better with recoil control, and as you use automatic weapons your character begins to be able to handle those muzzle climbs better and better. Its a simulation of real life weapon experience. That's why the climb is so drastic vs. semi-auto; It's "in the hands of an inexperienced shooter". As you mag dump on full auto, even inexperienced characters bring the weapon under control eventually, it's just a matter of how long it takes. Hope that makes sense.

  • the drum mag for the Makarov description says that it's makeshift I'm pretty sure.

  • And now I need Tarkov.

  • the reason why guns are vertically rising is maybe game developers/gun testers are rickety
