Jonathan Ferguson, a weapons expert and Keeper of Firearms & Artillery at the Royal Armouries, breaks down the realistic weaponry of Escape From Tarkov, including the KRISS Vector submachine gun, the Mosin Nagant rifle, and the SIG MCX assault rifle.
Escape From Tarkov is a brutally realistic take on the first person shooter genre, and its fictional region of Norvinsk is full to the brim contemporary firearms like the MK-18 Mjölnir DMR, the FN FAL battle rifle, and the Dragunov sniper rifle.
In the above video, Jonathan Ferguson--a weapons expert and Keeper of Firearms & Artillery at the Royal Armouries--breaks down the weapons of Escape From Tarkov, and compares their in-game depictions against their real-world counterparts.

Show him squad
He should go over the gunplay of Squad. I feel he could get a kick out of the different weaponry in that game.
links in description dont work...
Хороший пиар ход, молодцы BSG!
Rising Storm 2 Vietnam 2 next please.
Is that a fucking gold svd in the background??!
idk, having him react to squad would be pretty nice
how about reacting to some guns from destiny 2? they are fictional, but there are a lot of details on them. thanks!
Ah yes the mosin as a sniper rifle....Kicks snub nose mosin under a bush.
He should definitely check out Hunt: Showdown, it's got more of a cowboy feel.
Jonathan Ferguson should look up the guns of Rust, probably analyze the possibility of a handmade gun
how him how breaking your arms has an effect on the stability of holding the gun and stuff like that.
Has he done Insurgency Sandstorm?
Can he take a look at Battlefield V
Guns like the liberator pistol and the type 2A SMG
BSG the guys who make Tarkov, do a ton of research on every weapon in the game
Still love my Remington 700 but about to update it to make it more modern by getting a new stock so I can add a mag to it
We need more
Please Show him Post Scriptum
Great series! Next time send the chap a machine with Tarkov loaded so he can play around with it. Load up the configurator real time and maybe load an empty map to try out the guns, sounds, and action in real time. Either way, I thoroughly enjoyed these videos and the feedback. I love that there are institutions such as the Royal Armory which are dedicated to preserving our history. That must be a wonderful job to go to each day!
sadly can't blow yourself up with ammo misload, gun just turns red if you put the wrong cartridge in a compatible mag and won't fire until addressed
As a gun nerd myself I love this guy. I spend alot of my tarkov time on the modding screen as well.
@GameSpot Originally BSG (The developers of Escape from Tarkov) was originally going to have the MCX be able to be modified to shoot different caliber of rounds. But decided against it as it would be too difficult and complex to program for the time being.
you should review hunt showdown firearms i think teyre pretty realistic but im not an expert
I see an mp-18, a chauchat, and what appears to be a villar perosa m15 behind Jonathan. That, coupled with the intro clips with BF1 I take it that’s a video already shot or in the near future?
Someone should let him know they used IRL sound samples for weapons and movement. and used actual the actual weapons for the modeling.
5:05 more like 3.38 la-poo-a magnum
Break down more black ops cold war the innacurasiesss
i think a multi tool is easy to take out but who am i
i have literally spent 60% of my overall playtime in EFT all in the Presets-section
If you want to do this again with a game that is just a little less realistic, but still brings great visuals and functionality. Look at the game "Rust"
Third part plz
Really cool dude! He should do Insurgency: Sandstorm!
I'd like to see Battlefield V
He should react to Vigor ! It’s a raid game similar to EFT
He should do pubg man, big ass recoil
this is the only game id watch this series on lol
gonna absolutely echo someone else suggesting hunt showdown? very very different from the other games that jon's covered but the amount of effort and fidelity put into the firearms in that game is impressive (and also they have a 3D range that shoots the guns and shows off how INSANELY LOUD they all are)
Do Hot Dogs, Horseshoes & Hand Grenades!
do h3vr lol that would be sick
PLEASE show him ARMA 3. PLEASE!!!
Scavs don't use front sights on Mosin's. They have aimbot lmao
The one thing i've been saying they need for a while is the ability to change out calibers by swapping parts. Having an AR platform locked into 5.56 is kinda absurd considering you can fire everything from .22lr to .500 Beowulf from an AR by swapping out upper receivers, barrels, and magazines. Having that flexibility in Tarkov would be nice because then you could really modify your weapons to meet your preferences.
now do roblox phantom forces
yes, BSG should sell gunsmith like an app for phones or sth
we need a part 3!!!!
It seems like you can't put a 300blk loaded mag into a 5.56 MCX. Also you can't load 5.56 and 300blk on top of each other to trick it into doing so.
I think he should meet Ian from Forgotten Weapons
on the topic of front sights and customizability, im sure everyone's been through the problem of keeping forgetting the stock ADAR front sight/gas block on while attaching a scope... and then all you see through the scope is said gas block LOL
I mean to take off the front sight all it takes is a hak saw
Do a weapons expert reacts to mw2
this dude is literally Mechanic
I wanna hear what he thinks about the ash12
Still waiting calmly for an insurgency sandstorm video!
Show him Battlefield 1
Jonathan is a cool dude :)
If you use the super performance slugs in tarkov you have a 1 hit wonder sniper
Please Far cry new dawn.
Nice shirt, badgers. I like it
with mcx you cant blow up the gun if wrong ammo is loaded, it just wont fire
Arma 3 reaction please
"some really good sound desing in this game" yup he definitely hasnt played this game xD
I want ash 12!!!! Ash 12!!!
It would be awesome to see Jonathan play Hotdogs, Horseshoes, and Hand Grenades
"get a second mortgage and get a gaming pc"
Someone should tell him eft runs like complete shite on any rig
please get this man a camera and mic
"I'd spent most of the time in [the gun Smith] instead of shooting anything"
You should mix in some meme guns just to mess with him. The stair-pattern scoped rifles are a great classic. Or the double scoped obrez with 6 or so red dot sights plastered to it like petals
Definitely check out H3VR I´d like to see a professional talk about his top five favourites from the game!!!
You all wanted more Expert Reacts to Tarkov so here it is!
There are still loads of guns in Tarkov to talk about so if you want a third part, be sure to comment.
And if there are other games you'd like Jonathan to check out, be sure to leave those suggestions down below too!
Firearms expert claims AK doesnt have rear sights....ok
They will let you load 556 and 300aac...but it won't allow you to fire the weapon. Same problem with 366tkm and 762x39. Kedr won't run PMM ammo either due to chamber pressures.
Great review. Love to see them
Suggestions for the third part: Bullet ejecting, charging (with and without a magazine), ricochets, tracers, tactical and emergency reload, different ammunition types (9x19 RIP vs AP, the infamous Star slug for the KS-23, etc), zeroing, scopes, blind fire, cracked visors, night vision, thermals and last but not least... frag grenades! (because they actually fragmentate into hundreds of projectiles instead of being a sphere collider that damages the player, like most games do)
I wanna see h3vr/hotdogs horseshoes and hand grenades
Give Ian back his chauchat
What would happen if you put a 556 in a 300 blackout gun
Still waiting for the Arma series or Far Cry 2 hopefully
Jonathan Ferguson could have said " the game got everything right move along" and I would have been satisfied with the review XD.
tarkov needs to get him a pc for the nice reviews.
i think u should react to arma III :)
We need a third episode, it is insane how good tarkov is
Sees badger on Jonathans shirt
PRAYS this is a sign of honeybadger is being added in next
johnathan should review insurgency: sandstorm
the MCX will no blow up as you cant put the different rounds in. It stops you and the only way to change it is by swapping out the barrel in the Inventory where your character stores everything/in the smith screen. Other guns that can use different ammo types are the same where they need their barrel swapped out, of course this doesn't apply to shotguns
Maybe he could do a review of Hotdogs Horseshoes and Hand-grenades?
Don't buy this game, Battlestate Games are fraud conmen!
You should review Receiver 2!
Not to brag, but As an American it’s cool to be able to just walk over to my safe and handle an ak47 anytime I want
DO A PART 3!!
you need to play tarkov. Stop talking about it and do it! Since you seem to be a fan of fire-arms, you're exactly the kinda person they want playing it :)
you should show the ash, or the grenade launcher or the grenade matching guns on the maps
"people who use the mosin must be using them as snipers" laughs in close range head eyes
This man need to play/review Hotdogs horseshoes and handgranades vr, witch id say is gun the game
get this man to react to h3vr
Jonathan: Finally plays Tarkov and spends days crafting his perfect AK
Jonathan: Goes into raid with his shiny ak then gets sniped before firing 1 bullet
U know me I gotta see battlefield 1
