The Key To Success Dialogue

Good day to you! We already went so far together, you’re like a brother to me. Like family, see, don’t get me wrong. So, like a brother, answer frankly, do you like reading? I devoured books back then, as a kid. But now I need a serious book, for business. A rare bitch for sure, but I know you can get a devil from under the ground if you'd want. Get me the book about designing clothes from special fabrics, all that military stuff has to be made with aramid fabric, which has its own tricks to it. There should be a manual for them, in two volumes. If you can get it, that’d be capital. Should probably check in the book stores, they must be there.

How to Complete The Key to Success Quest

To complete the ‘The Key to Success’ Quest in Escape from Tarkov, players need to complete a standard Pickup Mission that involves finding and obtaining two books named ‘Clothes Design Handbook – Part 1 & 2’.

These books are located in the following stores on Interchange Map.

  • Knigoyed
  • Museum of History

Where will you find the cloth design handbook?

To locate the two books for the Clothes Design Handbook mission, players should head to the Interchange map. The first book, “Clothes Design Handbook – Part 2,” can be found in the Book Store/Library on the first floor of the Knigoyed ULTRA Mall.

To get there, players should take the first set of stairs/escalators and turn right, following the main path of the mall without turning left or right at any intersections.

The Book Store is located in the sector called ‘книгоед’, opposite KOSTIN. The Handbook can be found on the bottom shelf of the third aisle on the entrance side, which is the last book on the right.

The second book, “Clothes Design Handbook – Part 1,” can be found on the second floor of the ULTRA Mall. Players should head up the escalators and turn right from the Store TECHLIGHT.

After a distance, take the next passageway on the left and go into the Museum with old Arcade games called ‘МУЗЕЙ ИСТОРИИ’. The Handbook is not on the bookcase but on the ground in front of it. Players should check the pile for the Handbook and pick up ‘Part 1’.

Final: Extraction

To complete The Key to Success Ragman Quest in Escape from Tarkov, you must extract from Interchange with the two handbooks and speak with Ragman to finish the mission. As long as you survive and deliver the handbooks to Ragman, the quest will be completed.
