MainManStan (Shroud’s IGN) teamed up, in a Group, with two friends to complete a few quests to unlock traders, and level them up. But, before he started with the raids, a pleasant surprise was waiting for Shroud. He received an in-game package that contained 20 masks with his logo printed on them. Named the ‘Shroud half-mask,’ its description read as follows: “Extremely stylish half mask with the Shroud logo. All the Tarkov street guys know who he is.”

Escape From Tarkov is a game where hardcore skills don’t matter. One must be extremely cautious and tactful when making each decision, especially when playing as a PMC. Apart from the few items in the secure container, all the sweet loot you acquire vanishes once you are dead. Worried about eventually losing all the exclusive gear he just obtained, Shroud headed out for a raid as a USEC PMC character, donning one of the masks.

Continuously communicating over their every move, he and his co-op friends secured the necessary objectives and loot by gunning down multiple PMCs as well as SCAVs. They showcased perfect synergy en route to their extraction point in the Outskirts. However, not all raids are smooth sailing, even for the best. In another loot run, an adversary PMC character headshot Shroud with a pistol and killed him. Well, in his defense, he couldn’t do much as he wasn’t wearing a helmet.
