Escape from Tarkov players have found an all-new location spawn for the much sought after red labs keycard on Shoreline – and it isn’t as hidden away as the other ones.

While there certainly plenty of loot to be found in Escape from Tarkov’s different raids, some items are much more sought after than others. You’ve got items like the Intelligence Folders, Red Rebel Ice Pick, and T H I C C Weapon case, but for some players, the holy grail is key cards.

Key cards are scattered around different raid maps and finding them can give you a leg up when you decide to tackle the Labs raid. Having a key card means that you’ll be able to unlock a different colored area which has a few riches on the other side. While players thought they had the red key card spawns down to a tee, a new one has cropped up.

Labs is the raid you head to when you’ve got a few keycards.

This new location was noted by Reddit user JohnMcClane13, and again, it is featured on the Shoreline raid. Unlike the key cards that can be found basement gym of the west wing resort building and in room 203, this new one shouldn’t be all that hard to find – provided that someone doesn’t beat you to it, that is.

To find the new key card, alls you have to do is head to the Administration building that is in the resort and head inside. Once there, head to the first-floor room that has the locked safe inside and look on the table. The white half of the key card should be sticking out from underneath the ashtray.

You just have to look under the ashtray to find the new red labs key.

If it isn’t, well, someone will have beaten you to the punch and grabbed it, but at least you know that there is a key card new location – at least for now.

The pending Escape From Tarkov 12.6 update is set to wipe the slate clean and even switch up loot locations and patterns in a bid to keep things from becoming too routine.

Dr Disrespect is never one to keep an opinion to himself on the big shooter games and the same goes for Warzone, as he’s pointed the game’s developers could learn a thing or two from Escape from Tarkov. 

EFT has been up and down in terms of popularity in the last 12 months, enjoying purple patches where streamers like xQc, Summit1g, and shroud have jumped in to boost its popularity. One of those big personalities was Doc, who played Tarkov multiple times for his audience to watch along.

His stint on it was never really consistent enough to call it his main game, whereas Warzone has been a staple of the Champions Club streams for some time.

Now though, the Two-Time has singled out one feature where the Call of Duty title just doesn’t compare.

Warzone has had many major updates since Black Ops Cold War released, but audio issues remain present.

Dr Disrespect on Warzone audio issues

During his YouTube stream on January 11, the self-proclaimed best video gamer in the world lashed out at the battle royale’s audio after a defeat. He claimed that it made it sound like opponents were 100 feet away in a warehouse, before creeping up on him.

He said: “A game like Escape from Tarkov, a game that has perfect audio, blows this game’s audio out by 500% – trust me.

“Trust me, any real gamer would say the same thing. It blows this audio out by like a thousand, but the reason why is because it caters to (competitive players). You hear something at a distance, a shot, footstep, you hear it!”

The streamer proceeded to imitate the sound in Warzone, making loud beatbox-style noises with his mic.

Discussion starts at 1:12:48 in the video below. 

This isn’t the first game that Doctor Disrespect’s had a problem with, from an audio standpoint. Almost all battle royale games have come under fire at the hands of the Two-Time, who has previously mocked Fortnite, Apex Legends, and others for the same thing.

It appears that Escape from Tarkov – despite not being as popular a game as Activision’s – is one that he actually admires.

Whether or not future updates will address the issue he’s highlighted remains to be seen, but until that time it looks like he’s going to have some big frustrations on Verdansk and Rebirth Island.
