If you want a busier map with more information, I stumbled across this one on the EFT forums as well. Credit to Monkimonkimonk and Glory4lyfe on the map below.
Dorms is the main area to be mindful of since it’s a popular looting area. There are many rooms here that require keys that can have expensive loot drops. Therefore, a lot of players rush here for loot and action. There’s also a chance of a raid boss spawning here with bodyguards.
Any areas that are wide open are potentially dangerous as well. Always avoid traveling along roads and wide-open areas like Shipping Yard or the area around Pit. Also, a dangerous warehouse frequently known as Big Red is shown on the first map in this article as “Customs”. This area is a rough starting spot for anyone since it has several spawns with not many places to go for crossing the map.
Raid Boss Locations
The raid boss Reshala frequently spawns at Dorms and Gas Station. However, he can also spawn at an area far east shown on the map above.
I hope this guide on the Customs map in Escape from Tarkov helps you get a better understanding of the game. As I learn the other maps, I’ll be sure to do similar write-ups for them too.
