Are you wondering how to complete Chemical 1, 2, 3, and 4 in Escape from Tarkov? Multiple-part quests like the three-part Gunsmith quest are not uncommon in Escape from Tarkov. Each part of the quest is not difficult, but they will reward you with great loot upon completion. Unfortunately, you will be responsible for finding many different items throughout the game, so it may be hard to know where all the objective points are. Don’t worry, though, because we have your ultimate guide. Here is everything you need to know about quickly completing Chemical 1, 2, 3, and 4 in Escape from Tarkov to earn great rewards.

How to Complete Chemical 1, 2, 3, and 4 in Escape from Tarkov

Here are detailed guides for all four parts of the Chemical quest in Escape from Tarkov. Please note that it is possible to lock yourself out of the area needed to complete Part 4 of the quest, which means you won’t be able to finish it.

How to Complete Chemical 1 in Escape from Tarkov

Chemical-Part-1

The primary objectives for the Chemical – Part 1 quest are:

  • Obtain information about the past life of the Deputy Chief on Customs

  • Hand over the items to Skier

You will want to find a train car on the western side of the Customs map. The Docs 0013 and Dorm Room 220 keys are in the train car. The Docs 0013 item is the information you must obtain on the past life of the Deputy Chief. It has multiple spawn points in the train car, so check everywhere. The Dorm Room 220 key is the item that will help with the investigation. This key can be found underneath a pair of blue jeans next to the mattress. The spawn rate of the key in this spot is low, so if you don’t see it, you will need to loot Jackets, Drawers, or Scavs to find it. Alternatively, you can purchase it from the Flea Market.
