The most recent Escape from Tarkov update fully added a vast map called Streets of Tarkov, with its own unique layout and several new quests to complete.

One of these is the new Escape from Tarkov Audit quest. In it, you are tasked with obtaining the Audit journal quest item on the streets of Tarkov, and then handing it over to Ragman. Here's everything you need to know to complete the Audit quest in Escape from Tarkov.

How to complete Escape from Tarkov Audit Quest

The Audit quest is a pickup mission that you get from Ragman. To start this quest you must first reach level 17.

Locating the Audit Journal

The journal itself is in a yellow building resembling a miniature bank across from Nikita's joint. It's very close to most spawn points on the map so you shouldn't have much trouble getting to it.

Once you've successfully navigated your way to the yellow building, step inside. Walk across the lobby to the door on the other side of the room. Go through it and head directly left up two flights of stairs.

After getting to the second floor, move to the hallway towards the door to the room containing the audit journal – it's the first one on your right. Enter, then simply turn right and you'll notice a few coloured folders lying across the floor. It's between these that you'll find the Audit journal quest item.

Navigating the Extraction Maze

After acquiring the Audit journal, all that's left to do is safely extract it through one of the few different extraction points. Here are the extraction points you should try going for:

  • Courtyard extract: This is the quickest extraction point if your spawn is near the quest hub. Backtrack to Malevicha St and keep an eye out for a green flare which signifies that extraction is available from this point.
  • Sewer River extract: From the building, make a sharp right along the train tracks that lead towards a tunnel. Go straight into the tunnel to complete a successful extraction with minimal interference.
  • Razvedchikov Street extract: This point could be a bit far off, but it's available every time you step onto the streets of Tarkov. Run towards the end of Razvedchikov Street where you'll find this extraction point.

Escape from Tarkov Audit quest rewards

Successfully completing the Escape from Tarkov Audit quest will bag you the following rewards.

  • 8,700 EXP
  • 200,000 Roubles (more depending on your Intelligence Center Level)
  • Ragman Rep +0.02
  • Makes 6B13 assault armour (flora) available for purchase at Ragman LL2

Not too bad for what's ultimately just a straightforward extraction mission that doesn't take long to complete.
