How to Complete ‘Watching You’

Room 215 Key

This Quest is relatively simple so long as you obtain the required Key you need to get into the Hotel Room. The Key you are looking for is the ‘Room 215 Hotel Key’. This can only be found inside Jackets, Drawers and on Scav Bodies (Pockets). You will find this Key in the Map, Streets of Tarkov through exploration. This Key should be relatively easy to find, just check inside Jackets and on Scav Bodies for its spawn. Once found, you need to make your way over to Pinewood Hotel. This is located at the north-east side of the Streets of Tarkov. You can enter the Hotel on the east side of the building where its main entrance will be.

Pinewood Hotel: Room 215

When you see the Pinewood Hotel front desk, turn right and climb the stairs on the eastern-side of the room. Follow the path all the way around until you locate the Hotel Room, 215 that is needed for the Quest. The spawn points of the Flash Drive that you need to grab is in two spots. It can either be found underneath the wall Television, beside the Laptop on the TV Unit or on the Windowsill between the Telescope and Camera. Upon picking up the Flash Drive, extract its contents to Trader, Mechanic after completing the Raid. Go into the Trader Screen and select the Tasks Tab to hand over the Flash Drive. This will complete the ‘Watching You’ Quest.
