A video series from two guys talking about life, politics, entertainment and other random things while being under enemy fire in the military simulation game Escape from Tarkov. It’s like being stuck in the trenches of a post-apocalyptic Russian battlefield, talking to your friends about bad life choices, while trying to survive.

Your hosts are Fabian A. Scherschel, a freelance journalist from Düsseldorf and Jonathan M. Hethey, a developer from Copenhagen.

Episode 9: Little Kappa

Fab hits a huge achievement and ascends to a select few Tarkov players. He puts his name on the walk of fame of fleamarketeers through a little bit of help of a daily task.


Episode 8: Just Survive Factory

Fab wants to finally get the flea market this wipe, so we’re on Night Factory again, trying to survive. As you’d expect, it doesn’t go well. Mostly because of Fab.


Episode 7: Stalker Cosplay Gets You Killed

The boys dress up as characters from the video game S.T.A.L.K.E.R. on Customs, which surprisingly doesn’t improve their survival chances. This show has been voted Least Politically Correct Content On The Internet three times in a row now.


Episode 6: WTF is Wacken?

In this episode, we witness Fab’s first ever excursion to Lighthouse and Jonathan finally talks about his Wacken festival experience. Apparently a strange woman from the internet bought him tickets when he was 17 years old.


Episode 5: Left Index Finger

Night factory, our home in times of need, our shelter for body and soul, turns on us. Trying to survive there proves harder than expected, especially if you keep shooting your friends. Meanwhile, we discuss gun channels on YouTube and injuries incurred to the same finger over and over.


Episode 4: Mall Cops

Fab and Jonathan peruse around the Interchange, the mall haunted by Killa, and talk about automatic cars, travelling to Norway and the North Cape specifically. Also, we’re cosplaying mall cops with big ass sun glasses and worryingly low physical ability.


Episode 3: James Bond's Vasectomy

We are doing a Scav-to-Hero run, trying to survive in Tarkov on scav gear alone. Along the way, we get killed by some not-so-friendly fellow scavs and then also by some PMCs. More of a Zero-to-Zero run, actually. We also review the Bond movie No Time to Die while we’re at it.


Episode 2: We Need to Talk about Elon

In the second episode, Jonathan shoots Shturman and Fab manages a sick PMC kill with the Mosin Mare’s Leg. We also discuss Elon Musk buying Twitter, cryptocurrencies and weird people like Marilyn Manson and Johnny Depp.


Episode 1: The Woods Dominators

In the inaugural episode of the show, Jonathan and Fab introduce themselves and the idea of this show while they go for a lovely hike on Woods and absolutely dominate the competition. In the process, they explain how they met and why they are doing this nonsense.
