Escape From Tarkov – Operation Aquarius Quest Guide

Do not, my friends, become addicted to water!

Escape From Tarkov is an evergrowing first-person shooter resembling a battle royale. There is one key difference: if you complete the mission objective and get out of the city limits within the allotted time, you get to keep your loot. Acquiring the supplies is necessary to progress in this game, and in Operation Aquarius, this will be your goal.

How do you complete the Operation Aquarius in Escape From Tarkov?

To successfully finish Operation Aquarius in Escape From Tarkov, the traders are sending you on a dangerous mission to secure the water supply. To start this quest, you need to be at least level 6. You will need to help the Therapist get to the stash of water hidden in the dorms to ensure it's all still there.

Operation Aquarius part 1

To complete the first part of Operation Aquarius, you must achieve the two objectives.

  • Locate the water supply hidden inside room 206 of the Dorms on Customs
  • Extract from the location

To access Dorm Room 206 on Customs, you must obtain the Dorm Room 206 key. You can find the key in the following places:

  • In pockets and bags of Scavs
  • In Drawers
  • In Jackets

When you obtain the key, head to the Dorms on the northern part of the Customs, Room 206 is on the second floor. You only need to unlock the door, step into the room and get out. No need to linger on, as the room contains no loot or anything else of interest. Alternatively, you can wait for other Raid participants to unlock the room for you and walk in behind them. This is a risky move and less likely to happen the closer game comes to a wipe. After you complete this, the only thing remaining for you to do is get out alive.

Operation Aquarius part 2

The second part of operation Aquarius is straightforward; you only need to kill 15 Scavs on Custom. You don't need to do it in the same raid or one life, but if you can pull it off, it will save you some time. The only goal is to kill them while in Customs.

The rewards for completing Operation Aquarius are the following:

  • 1× Water filter
  • 5× Bottle of water (0.6L)
  • 14,000 Roubles
    • 14,700 Roubles with Intelligence Center Level 1
    • 16,100 Roubles with Intelligence Center Level 2
  • 3,300 EXP
  • Therapist Rep +0.03
  • Skier Rep -0.02
