The industrial estate and facilities of chemical factory #16 were rented out illegally to the TerraGroup company. During the Contract Wars, this factory was a hotbed for numerous firefights between USEC and BEAR operatives that determined control over the entire Tarkov industrial district. With time, the factory premises were converted into a shelter for local civilians, Scavs, along with the occasional USEC or BEAR operators.
the situation in the Norvinsk region grows more and more complicated. Incessant warfare in Tarkov has sparked massive panic; the local population has fled the city, but those who stayed are looking to improve their fortunes at the expense of others. Having accepted the new reality, savage Tarkov locals – “Scavs” flocked into well-armed gangs and started the redivision of the city. Nowadays, Tarkov is separated by unseen borders, controlled by different groups. Gain-greedy gunmen would go to any length to have their way, including the murder of civilians and direct confrontation with the two private military companies.
