Guide To Gear Spawn Locations On Customs Map In Escape From Tarkov

1. Module 3-M Bodyarmor | Train Station

In front of the Big Red Warehouse on the western side of the Customs map is a concrete railway platform with a train docked on the tracks. A metal platform provides access to the center of the concrete platform. A few wooden boxes are placed to the left of the stairs on the metal platform. The Module 3M Bodyarmor can be found resting against these wooden boxes.

2. Flyye MBSS Backpack | Bus On Bridge

The bridge across the river on Customs is littered with abandoned cars, trucks and two buses. The bus nearest to the eastern side of the bridge is home to a Flyye MBSS Backpack spawn. You can tell you are in the right bus if you see a car hood resting against the back seats of the bus. The backpack can be found in the third row of seats from the back.

3. Flyye MBSS Backpack | River Container

You can find a Flyye MBSS Backpack in a shipping container near the bridge that crosses the river on Customs. On the side of the bridge closer to the Crossroads Extract is a small building / booth located right next to the bridge. Look behind this building towards the river to see a bright blue shipping container abandoned in the grass. The doors are slightly open to the container. Look inside towards the back right corner and you may find a Flyye MBSS Backpack inside. Be sure to search inside the backpack as loose loot gear often spawn with additional items inside.

4. Containers | Marked Room

The Marked Room is a special spawn location because it can spawn Containers such as Document Cases and Money Cases. It is located at the end of the hall in the three story dorms building. The door is locked and requires the Marked Key to open. The containers will spawn in the white circle located in the center of the room.

5. Headsets | Storage Tanks Room

Inside the Storage Tanks Building is a set of metal shelves surrounding a blue metal cabinet. Many barter items can be found on these shelves, but if you are lucky you can even find a pair of Headsets. The headsets will spawn on the second metal shelf from the left; on the bottom shelf. The most commonly found headsets at this location have been Peltor ComTac 2 headset and Walker’s Razor Digital headset. Both can help increase your survivability greatly as hearing threats before they hear you can give you a great advantage.

6. Flyye MBSS Backpack | Big Red Office

A Flyye MBSS Backpack can be found in the Office of the Big Red Warehouse on Customs. This is the office that you need the Customs Office Key to access and must breach open the door to enter the room. Players often find themselves here to complete tasks such as Prapor’s Delivery from the past and Mechanic’s Farming – Part 3. Once you are inside the Office, you can find the MBSS Backpack spawning against the wooden jacket cabinet to your left. Sometimes the backpack will glitch into the cabinet so keep your eyes open for a piece of it sticking out.

7. PACA Soft Armor | Big Red Computer Room

A PACA Soft Armor can spawn inside the Computer Room in the second story of the Big Red Warehouse. You will need the Customs Office Key to access this room. Once you are inside the room, you can find the PACA Soft Armor spawning on the chair directly in front of the door.

8. UNTAR Helmet | Scav Checkpoint

A UNTAR Helmet can spawn inside a military vehicle at the Scav Checkpoint Extract on Customs. One of the few loose helmet spawns in the game. You get to the Scav Checkpoint Extract by following the main road through Customs all the way east until it is blocked by a barricade and abandoned vehicles. One of those vehicles has its back door open. Take a look inside and you may find a UNTAR Helmet inside.

9. Flyye MBSS Backpack | Two Story Dorms – First Floor Kitchen

A Flyye MBSS Backpack can spawn inside the Kitchen located in the Two-Story Dorms Building on Customs. The Kitchen is located on the first floor of the building. Enter the building through the main entrance and proceed left down the hallway. You will find the room to your left. When you are inside the kitchen you will find a large broken wooden cabinet in the back of the room. The MBSS Backpack will spawn on the floor leaning against this cabinet.

10. Flyye MBSS Backpack | Room 310

A Flyye MBSS Backpack can spawn inside Room 310 located in the Three-Story Dorms Building on Customs. This room is located on the third floor of the building across the hall from the infamous Marked Room. You can find the backpack spawning under the window leaning against the wall.

11. Module 3-M Bodyarmor | Three Story Dorms

As you enter the Three-Story Dorms Building through the main entrance you will find a staircase leading upstairs directly ahead. Resting on a cardboard box next to the stairs is a Module 3M Bodyarmor spawn. Because the dorms are dark and the white of the armor blends in with the color of the stairs this one is easily missed – even though it is in plain sight.

12. Flyye MBSS Backpack | Three Story Dorms

A Flyye MBSS Backpack can be found in the Three Story Dorms Building. On the third floor by the southern fire escape exit is a bathroom. The backpack can be found leaning against a bathroom stall – next to a bathroom sink.

A Scav Backpack will occasionally spawn at the campsite west of the Dorm Buildings. You will find it leaning against the left side of the tent.

14. Scav Backpack | Railroad Extract

Next to the Railroad To Military Base extract is a red shipping container on the floor with its door open. You can crawl inside the container by going prone. A Scav Backpack can be found inside the container by the cardboard boxes.
