During the game, the player is presented with Supply Plans. The first of these plans is an offer from Skier for double the money that the Therapist wants. Then, the player is presented with the dilemma of whether to side with the Skier or the Therapist.
This article will discuss the benefits of siding with the Skier and the disadvantages of siding with the Therapist.
What is the Supply Plans Quest?
In Escape from Tarkov, a quest named Supply Plans can be found in the Woods. This quest is tied to the Skier quest and asks the player to retrieve a secure folder that he wants before the Therapist does. There are two benefits to doing this quest.
The first is that it rewards the player with a very basic reward. On the other hand, the player may want to try to complete the task to gain some extra reputation.
Getting this quest is quite easy, although it will cost you some reputation, so it is important to complete it successfully. If you are looking for a quick way to gain a reputation, try siding with the Skier.
The Skier offers you more money than the Therapist, so it is a good option if you want to build up your reputation. If you fail, however, the reputation of the Therapist will be -0.3.
The Skier and Therapist are the two characters you can choose to help you complete the Kind of Sabotage quest in Escape from Tarkov.
It is important to choose wisely, as you could end up with a reputation of 0.3 or lower, which would be a significant downfall. If you want to save the lives of civilians, however, hand over the folder to the Therapist.
Why you should choose the Kind of Sabotage – (SKIER) Option?
In Escape from Tarkov, the player must complete the Supply Plans quest, handing over folder 0052 to Skier or Therapist. The quest is tied to Skier’s quest, but it is also worth noting the pro and cons of each. The Pro: You will earn more reputation.
You’ll be stuck with the same sabotage quest for the duration of the game. However, the proof of this quest is that it’s pretty straightforward to complete.
You’ll have to choose between giving the folder to the Therapist or the Skier. The former offers the best rewards, but the latter gives worse penalties.
While siding with the Skier will give you a +0.4 reputation with each character, siding with the Therapist will ruin your reputation. As such, the Pros: The reputation penalty is better, since completing the quest gives you a sabotaged folder.
The cons of this quest include a low reputation with the Therapist and the risk of ending up in jail. The reputation hit is minor and unimportant to account for progress.
You’ll need to do several easy quests early in the game, and the extra Roubles you gain can go towards a nice budget gun, headset, or high-quality ammo. This quest will earn you the same amount of experience as one good raid, but it doesn’t significantly hurt your PMC.
Some of the rewards and penalties for Escape from TarkovKind of Sabotage and Supply Plans are below:

Should you give folder 0052 to Skier or Therapist?
There are two options when it comes to the quest “Whether to give Tarkov Kind of Saboture-Hand over Folder 0052” in the Escape from Tarkov. You can choose to hand over the folder to Skier or the Therapist, but there are pros and cons to each option. Let’s go over both options.
If you’re not too interested in either quest, the best bet is to give the folder to the Skier. It gives you the highest rewards but also comes with the most penalties.
The folder will cost you 0.1 reputation with the Skier, but you’ll have a better chance of recovering it later on. Moreover, giving the folder to the Therapist will result in a -0.3 reputation penalty with Skier.
Choosing between the two is an excellent idea from a lore perspective, but the rewards will be somewhat limited. The player must make a choice between the two options, and the outcome of each will determine their reputation.
Alternatively, the player can choose to hand the folder to either the Skier or Therapist to complete the quest. While both options have advantages and disadvantages, we recommend choosing the latter option if you’re not too sure.
While Skier and Therapist have similar reputations, the Skier has an advantage in terms of ease of completion. However, there are plenty of easy quests that the Skier can do in the early game.
The 0.4 reputation earned by the Skier is negligible compared to the 0.7 gained from the Therapist. However, the extra Roubles can go towards early-budget guns and high-quality ammo. The negative reputation won’t have any significant impact on the PMC.
This is the end of this short guide.
