Escape from Tarkov is a challenging and immersive game where players complete various quests while navigating a war-torn city. One such quest is the Pharmacist quest, given by the character “Therapist.” To start this quest, you need to be at least Level 10 and have completed the Painkiller quest. The Pharmacist quest takes place on the Customs map and involves retrieving a briefcase from a locked room. Here’s a step-by-step guide to help you complete this quest.


Overview of the Pharmacist Quest

The Pharmacist quest involves the following main objectives:

  1. Obtain the briefcase from Dorm Room 114 on the Customs map.
  2. Optional: Locate the paramedic’s car on Customs.
  3. Deliver the briefcase to the Therapist.


Before you start the quest, ensure you have the Dorm Room 114 key. This key can be found in several places:

  • Inside jackets, pockets, and bags of Scavs (enemy AI).
  • Bought from the Flea Market.
  • Found in a jacket inside a car at the Military Checkpoint near the New Gas Station on the Customs map. This location has a high spawn rate for the key.

Step-by-Step Guide

  1. Finding the Key
    • The best place to find the Dorm Room 114 key is at the Military Checkpoint. Look inside a jacket located in a car trunk. This area is past the New Gas Station, but be cautious of Scavs in the vicinity.
  2. Reaching Dorm Room 114
    • Head to the Two-Story Dorm building on the Customs map. There are two dorm buildings: one with three stories and the other with two. You need to enter the two-story building.
    • Once inside, turn left and walk down the corridor. Dorm Room 114 will be on your right, next to a kitchen area.
  3. Retrieving the Briefcase
    • Use your Dorm Room 114 key to unlock the door. Inside, you’ll find the briefcase on top of a safe. Additionally, you can loot the safe, a PC, and a Medical Box on the bed for extra items.
  4. Extraction
    • After obtaining the briefcase, your goal is to safely extract from the Customs map. Be cautious, as dying before extraction means you’ll have to retrieve the briefcase again.

Tips for Success

  • Preparation: Equip yourself well before attempting this quest. The area can be heavily guarded by Scavs and other players.
  • Stealth and Speed: Move quickly but cautiously through the Customs map. Avoid unnecessary confrontations to increase your chances of survival.
  • Backup Plans: Have a backup plan in case you encounter enemies. Knowing alternate extraction points can be lifesaving.
