The golden egg or simply egg in Escape from Tarkov is a valuable item. It is a generic loot item that can be found in different locations in the game. This item is required for the completion of two quests, including the Collector quest, that allows you to get your hands on the Kappa Secure Container, which is modeled after the real life pistol case called the V100 by Pelican. The Collector quest requires players to find all streamer-related items with ‘found in raid’ status. 

Here’s everything you need to know about the golden egg item in Escape from Tarkov and the locations where you can find it. This guide will also walk you through the quests that require you to possess the golden egg.

The golden egg is one such streamer/content creator item in the game.
