Someone put that in there thinking it'd be funny
That would take a while too, thanks to the weird way Tarkov has you disperse items
Someone really put some minutes into getting us all to lose braincells
I used to do this with a backpack full of single shitty rounds a year ago when killing scavs on woods
As in just give them shitty rounds or make those rounds into the shape of a swastika?
Give theme shitty rounds. 1 for every space in the bag
Ohhh purely evil that’s hahaha you’re a genius.
And they were right lol
melting snowflakes really made my day lol.
If you’re still in middle school
How is it funny exactly?
Edgelords gonna edgelord.
My reaction was literally "oh it's a swastika". I'm not offended, but i definitely didn't find it funny either. If someone finds it funny... That's totally up to them.
People just don’t want to admit they’re immature, so instead they act like anyone who doesn’t find it funny is just an OFFENDED SNOWFLAKE
here comes the redditor squad. ready to be offended at anything.
It’s poor taste at the very least. Now, if someone had made a dick and balls with it, that would be hilarious.
‘Offended at anything’ it’s literally a swastika my man that ain’t ‘anything’
It‘s a user generated swastika in a VIDEO GAME. Getting offended by that is mind bogglingly dumb. I could imagine if you were personally victimized by literal Nazis, seeing a swastika could be triggering? But not many people like that are playing Tarkov. So, you know, fuck off a wee bit?
Nah. A swastika is a swastika. It’s offensive because of its context and the way they were trying to use it. I’m not telling you to fuck off, not sure why you feel the need to be so aggressive about this.
Not really, the nazi swastika probably shouldn’t be equaled to the Buddhist swastika...
Of course not, but that context needs to be present. If you put up a swastika, you can’t get mad when people talk about it’s context relating to the Nazi Regime. The cultural scar will always effect the symbol.
Also, gonna go out on a limb and say this dude didn’t put a swastika in tarkov to spread Buddhism.
Yeah that’s fair
Nah. A swastika is not always meant to be a real meaningful swastika. Nobody emphazises with them, nor the one who made the joke, so why don't you guys calm down a little and not get offended at something like this?
fun fact: people are allowed to be offended
edit: damn we got a lotta nazi lovers up in here
and people are allowed to find things that are stupid, like this, funny.
sorry about your shitty taste 🤷🏻♂️
edit: lmfao damn we got alot of people here who think swastikas are "good taste"
Sorry about not caring about your feelings
Offended at anything? Are you a Holocaust denier or something? We're talking about one of the most serious crimes against humanity ever perpetrated here, with people still alive today who lived though it.
You have to be off a seriously gross mindset to think anything about that is funny.
HOLY, he straight up jumped all the way to calling me a denier.
What does this guy do when he runs out of ammo?
He starts beating scavs with the stick out of his ass.
Take a chill pill after chugging that galon of soylent. I didnt heil or anything i'm just pointing out what a bunch nofunallowed bitches you are, thankfully the internet still holds strong seeing the amount of downvotes you guys have.
How... fascist of you...
If we all tip toed around anything Nazi or Holocaust related- no one would talk about it. It'd be then more succeptible to being forgotten. **Humor is a perfect/only medium to keep such a tragic part of history PRESENT on everyones minds**, *without* forcing everyone to drown themselves in liquor or fall into a suicidal depression.
The reason this is funny, is because I realize how confused I'd be for the next 10 seconds after discovering this in game. The mental gymnastics I'd perform only to then realize some dumb ass spent 10 seconds conjuring this dumb scenario up. The sheer coincidence I then personally found it. *The perpetrator isn't a Nazi. He's a bored guy, who wanted to shock a fellow player for 5 seconds.*
**Humor is literally a coping mechanism for reality.** I would understand your reaction here if it was a joke angled to glorify or lessen the tragedy... but it wasn't. It /clearly/ isn't. The KKK doesn't have a Tarkov branch that goes into every raid making swastika's. Stop slandering people just because they find humor in an absurd reference without collapsing on the ground crying.
It’s pretty funny that it’s making people like you write essays LOL
Peak auth right moment. Oh shit, thought that was PCM
And then there's authleft, trying to censor everyone.
How is a swastika made out of items funny?
The swastika isn't why it's funny, it's seeing something so absurd in a video game where you'd never expect to see such a thing that gives you a surprised laugh. It's also subjective, not everyone is gonna find it funny and thats fine.
You're totally right, but like why a swastika, man. Do like, a dick or something that's not, you know, a swastika.
Just don't let it get to you, swastika is a hate symbol, but you can almost gaurentee it wasn't put there to promote nazism, but as a shock factor joke. That said, again it's fine if you don't find it funny, just letting you know why some do!
Good comment and good point
Idk what to write i tried multiple times but suck at it
Haha I feel that, I've written out a comment and deleted it more times than I can count.
Because they think people are scared of it and they are alphas because they dont care and it shows how based they are. One day when their brains finish growing they could learn about class or tact or some other shit they 100% will never learn. Sadly it will probably take their whole family getting mowed down trying to attack a government building before they realize what a joke is.
Edit: And seems Ive offended some country bumpkin Nazis. Well shit, Cletus! I'm sorry! I didnt realize the FBI still has your dad!
Ye this whole sections seems to be filled with bumpkins, i got downvoted to hell for a pretty basic almost unalligned comment.
Hmm yes white supremacy symbols are funny and appropriate.
The fuck is wrong with you?
Ooh look at all the downvotes! If you think using swastikas or other racist symbols is funny, there's something seriously wrong with you.
Peepee poopoo society
Or maybe glorifying Nazi symbols is absolutely fucked?
Big ass glorifying going on here
Making a joke about ≠ glorifying
Getting mad about jokes relating to nazism = virtue signaling
Christ, i cant imagine seeing something like this in game and just exploding "oh my GOD! This is horrible! This is disgusting! How dare this scum GLORIFY a symbol of HATE!" Instead of just "huh. I wonder who took the time to do this."
Clutching your pearls like your life depends on it.
Nah, just calling out the edgy shitters who think Nazi symbols are funny to use in memes.
Are you sure? Because it looks like you're having a meltdown in a reddit thread to really stick it to the chuds.
Nah I'm just here to point out how fucked you all are. What part of this post is a meme?
Its not a meme. It's just a guy saying "wow, that's unusual"
But to be honest I think you know that, youre just desperate to prove to nobody that you're a 'good person.'
Shit like "just pointing out how fucked you all are"? You'll be patting yourself on the back for the rest of the day for that one. You sure showed us!
Bro. We all know nazis are fucked, stop pretending we like nazis or glorify them in any way. Are you new on the internet or something?
what do you get from starbucks
Just cups of used coffee grounds, still more palatable than this subs apparent love for hate symbols.
yes, everyone here is a nazi, you figured it out champ
Yes, this sub is very clearly a gathering place for members of the former 3rd reich, and the establishment of the 4th. I cant believe he figured it out!
Your words are vibrating, sir.
What is this, 2015?
Yep, all of us who laughed at this post pretty much put it there ourselves. Very sorry that we laughed at the swaztika, next time we will cower in fear like its supposed to make us do.
The swaztika is a joke to us, look at how its affecting you. You're giving it power.
Normalizing Nazi symbolism is what you are doing.
It's not a joke. It's normalization of fucking Nazis.
What the hell is wrong with you people?
Christ all mighty, go and touch some grass bro
Touch some grass? Not familiar with this saying.
How is laughing at it normalizing it? Like thats the exact opposite fuckwad.
Comin in here telling people they are supporting nazism. You are. You're giving power to the symbol.
Which would you rather me do, be so APPALLED by the swaztika that I couldnt even fathom make a joke about it, or laughing at the fucking swaztika.
Like seriously, cant reiterate enough, we are LAUGHING at a swaztika. YOU want the swaztika to hold so much power we cant even laugh at it.
Go join some skinhead group if you want me to be afraid of a little swaztika
you are so far lost in the sauce, even tho you have good intentions. you should take like a 100 steps back. laughing at something doesnt normalize said thing. you are giving it power on the other hand by treating it as something so sinister that you cannot even laugh about it. this will never let us get past our history, so you are actively working against what you are trying to achieve.
I just live in a place where Nazi symbolism is *never* used. The only place you see people flying Nazi flags or wearing swastikas or other Nazi symbols is at extremist rallies.
I find the idea that somebody making a swastika in a video game and people on the internet laughing at it to be wildly inappropriate.
that is a very sheltered worldview im sorry. you cannot be this naive on the internet if you want people to take you seriously.
Dude I hate Nazis but this is a meme. No one is seeing this and thinking, "ah yes I want to be a Nazi now!"
No because part of the natural human reaction of something being funny is the "surprise" of the thing that makes you laugh. So thus in such an intense game such as Tarkov which literally leaves it players hand shaking with adrenaline seeing a box of loot full of such an obserd and random symbol is funny. Because you never In a killion years would think a swastika would show up in a loot box. So dude get the stick out of your ass. Your not gonna single handedly destroy Nazis by being butthurt on a video game forum. Go be someone else's hero
I'm sorry, but swastikas and Nazi symbols will NEVER be funny.
Theyre pissing you off tight now, and thats pretty funny, so i would say that they have caused humor, making them inherently funny : )
No need to apologize cause no one gives a fuck lol. Comedy is subjective so go live life not being able to laugh at pixels on a screen that is literally not hurting anyone in the world in any real way
It is funny, and im tired of pretending its not.
Especially your reaction.
Responses like this are why people do it
It is funny
I don't understand the joke, care to explain the humor?
somewhere, some wannabe retard kid is still laughing since he did this. Joke is on him though, Nazi's didn't use AK-47s! idiot.
Don't think he cares still
You're gonna have a hell of a time if you don't know what the AK-47 was based off of.
The AK platform has more in common with an M1 Garand mechanically than an STG-44.
An m1 garand.
It's based off an m1 garand.
Only the moistest of battle rifles could produce the moistest of assault rifles
Should be called daddy garand concerning how many guns it's spawned, the ak the m14 and aaallllll of their derivatives (my favorite being the mini 14)
Not the stg 44?
I'd say more inspired by. I'm a huge stg44 fan and free time hobby gunsmith. The internal operations are entirely different. But I do think the idea of an Intermediate cartridge designed for close to medium range combat had a lot to do with the soviets pushing the AK-47. Not to mention the whole stamped vs milled thing. From my knowledge they started with a stamped reciever but just couldn't get it to the point of durability and mass manufacturing. Hence the milled aks being often mistaken as the first AKs. I think the captured German engineers had a lot to do with getting the AKM working as originally invisioned by Kalashnikov. But than again people argue over this like beating a dead horse.
I will agree that the intermediate cartridge idea was inspired by the STG-44 but I’m talking about the operating system the m1 garand is closer to the AK with a gas tube and a few other things I can’t think of right now
You could even argue that isn't true either. The designer of the Fedorov Avtomat decided that the gun should use the lightest possible full sized cartridge.
Ok sure you could say that but in terms of the way the guns feed there almost identical
The AK platform was not based off STG it was more base off the m1 grand
Well i know it's DEFINITELY not based off the stg44, so I have no clue what you mean.
Lowkey glad i took this picture while it was still “searching” wouldn’t want reddit users to think i did this as a joke now all of a sudden i’m a nazi glorifier LMAO.
Dont worry, that's this entire sub apparently. They just wish they came up with it first.
Sometimes people wanna be triggered. You gotta laugh at the shitty things that happen in life. I think George Carlin had a good bit about exactly that.
My favorite is the Ricky Gervais quote:
“You found it offensive? I found it funny. That’s why I’m happier than you.”
Hard to imagine a life where one takes everything on the nose, so to speak
Laugh about the Holocaust? Are you fucking braindead?
I sometimes make a smiley face or a frowny face if I'm bored
You got 69% of the squad laughing. Not bad. Not bad at all.
I did Nazi that coming
based and T ammo pilled
on a related note, this game tends to have a lot of players with racist dogtags. love robbing the teenage edgelords who chose “Kekhimmler88” as a tag
Yep I see a lot of them.
A significant portion of the player base on reddit seems to support white supremacy and use far right memes and talking points.
I feel like it’s a thing for most milsim communities, sadly. The good thing is that they’re usually very shitty at tark, so it’s just free loot for my boys
Huh I never really ran into it in Arma or squad. Maybe I've just been lucky 🙃
You all are acting like chimps lmao.
"Freak the fuck out because someone made two squiggly lines in a video game!"
No, someone intentionally made a Nazi symbol and people here are glorifying it.
Ok, Mr. Crusader! Your argumentation here on a reddit tarkov post will really show those dirty facists!
To be fair, allowing unmonitored fascist propaganda has in the past overtaken the conversation and general narrative of lots of things in the past. I won’t say I see much evidence of that happening here, though I am concerned as to how anyone finds humor in just seeing a swastika on a screen.
Holy shit how much of your day did you spend getting triggered in this thread lol it’s taken me almost 20 minutes just to read all your comments
Hmm not very long. I didn't even write that much, shouldn't take very long to read at all...
My bad, I included the 10 minutes I spent in the middle of reading. Which I spent wondering why you chose THIS subreddit of all subreddits as your hill to die on LMAO
Because this was the last place I expected to see people laughing at someone making a swastika in a game.
Lmao you’re still going bro, you must be new to the internet. Nobody’s glorifying anything, and seeing you rage is honestly making this even funnier rofl xd lmao kek pogchamp
Yeah, I'm still going. I still don't think that making swastikas for fun and laughs and upvotes is an OK thing to do. You do you though.
Lol cry about it more. Now this post is living rent free in your head.
Nah, I'm not that bothered by it. I clearly triggered the fuck out of some racists though.
Lol whatever helps you sleep better in your safe space kid.
What? Are you just throwing out words you think will be insulting?🤣🤣
10 comments took you 20 minutes?
Most intelligent person that uses “triggered” unironically
The nazi one is the one that's tilted on its axis
Also generally the one with the lines in an S shape where the tilting doesn't fit. Like OP's.
The classical symbol generally runs in the opposite direction.
I didn't know it was gunna turn out like that
I'm polish and I approve this message
Now Twitter is gonna cancel tarkov, again, but not for the f-slur this time
Should be more like a sickle and hammer for tarkov.
Pretty funny lookiny for slick and seeing this instead.
Man all these Nazis in this reddit really make me want to ban the internet. Who do I have to call to sort all this out? I'll really show them!
Idk man, banning the internet sounds pretty fascist to me
Stop being a reddit warrior and go back to taking care of your plants bud.
@s don’t work on Reddit
you have to tag users like this /u/Tarkov_Hunter :)
Huh I didn’t know that, thanks! You learn things every day
Holy social justice warriors. Yinz sound like a bunch of Emily’s. If it offends you that bad then just keep scrolling you snowflake fucks lmao
Right, i even put the NSFW thingy on it to scare away snowflakes yet they still clicked on it just to cry their eyes out.
They probably thought it was porn and got excited
Did not realize how infected this sub is with Nazi apologists, disgusting
But hate symbol funny kekw
Yeah I'm quite surprised. One guy even unironicaly praised Hitler.
And the mods seem totally fine with it.
Maybe he was Indian and left it as a sign of good luck. Shubh laabh.
Lmao all the comments jajajajajajajajaja
Judging by the number of downvotes my comment got I'm starting to think that there are Nazi sympathizers in this group.
Well shit brother the second comment sure seems to have cleared it up
Its a bunch of Yokels lol. Id seriously bet money most of them have never left their state or seen the ocean. Dont waste your time dude.
You're probably right. It's a shame really.
Don’t worry, no one’s gonna miss you. Also, what part of this is glorifying white supremacy?
That's hilarious. I've done that in the far past.
Lmfao bruuuuuh! ❄ will hate this one 🤣
Whow ... Y'all smoking that pack for being triggered like that lads. Thanks for making my day
Why post it to the sub tho?
I’m new to this reddit thing this is my second post and i’ve only posted twice lol, where should i have posted it?
No where lol
Wdym? are you offended by a symbol ? 😐
I feel like it's very reasonable for someone to say they're offended by a historical hate symbol
Maybe look up what this symbol originally meant before nazi’s rebranded it. Then maybe you’ll be less of a pussy.
Doesn’t really matter what it was before WWII, it’s almost never used in any context other than a hateful one now.
It DOES matter what it represented before WWII. Maybe if we restored it and EDUCATED people on what the symbol really means, people wouldn’t fucking cry in a subreddit, for gods sake, they weren’t even allowed to use it in Call of duty WW2 in case people were offended. we’re literally censoring history because people can’t stop whining and pouting like bitches. I can’t believe our ancestors survived getting eaten alive and made it through global extinction events just so PUSSIES could fuck up everything on the internet. It’s not a fucking symbol of hatred, that’s just what stuck because some shitty people wanted to use it as their mascot. Give me a break.
Hate to break it to you, but the person that put that swastika there didn’t do it for good luck.
Again, any context the symbol had *before* the Nazis adopted it doesn’t particularly matter, because the public perception is... well, public perception. If people perceive it as a hate symbol (including the people *using* it as a hate symbol) it’s a hate symbol. Of all the dumb hills to die on, it’s extremely difficult to argue that a *swastika* isn’t a hate symbol.
The COD thing is pretty dumb, I will admit (even if it’s not prevalent to the argument). Can’t imagine why someone would decide to remove the Nazi symbol from a story *about* Nazis. But then again, who’s cared about COD WWII in the last few years other than the three people that got suckered into buying it?
Not really it's just weird that you would post something like that. I imagine you are still waiting for your balls to drop too?
The fact that you’re weirded out by it kinda tells me you’re offended by it, and no my balls have dropped, as a matter of fact they dropped in your mothers mouth last night.
Lol this whole thread is hilarious. You could've stumbled across this and done nothing yet you decided to post it to reddit, granted it's a meme sub but still that's on you guy. Says more about you than anything else lol.
Yeah me posting some shit i found in tarkov to a tarkov reddit says a lot about me, get a life, and a functional brain.
bc its funny
Maybe to you....
Isn't that the point though, if he found it funny, the post has been successful in being entertaining. Some people find shit funny, others don't find the same shit funny.
There's no issue with him finding it funny per se I mean that seems a bit weird to me personally but whatever, it's the posting it to reddit part I find problematic even if this is a meme sub.
The guy who posted it found it funny (I assume) and wanted to share a chuckle with others. Posting something from a game onto a subreddit made for jokes and memes about said game makes sense. There isn't really a problem.
THANK YOUU 🙏🏼
The type of person who did this is also the type of person who thinks it's ok to use hacks to gain an advantage in the game.
Nazis, and cheaters, deserve cancer...
I hate cheaters too but...jesus christ guy how is there even a remote connection hahahah wtf
Just tired of immorality and people getting away with being scumbags...
How much paint did you huff for your neural pathways to be this fucked up?
So being a cheater is equal to a nazi and basicly deserve to have 1 of the worst disease right now and likely die. So you are kind of a real degenerate for thinking that.
Did you assume my diagnosis?
Anyway... Yes, I do lump then all together. Along with child molesters, communists, and people who are cruel to animals.
A woodchipper is also an acceptable alternative as punishment.
Lol COMMUNISTS? With nazis and child molesters?
Found the american.
Communists were pretty bad though
But its funny
Thank you, also due to my circumstances, I'm allowed to make jokes like this. 😘
What circumstancen is that
Your know how only black people can say the "N-word"?
Are you a cheater?
Oh right the bit at the end, thought you meant you were jewish i was well confused
A stain on the beauty that is the beautiful kalashnikov caliber 5.45x39
Man, if it was 7.62... I don’t know if I could contain myself
