Factory is a location in Escape from Tarkov. It is the first location that was added to the game.

Description[edit | edit source]

The industrial estate and facilities of Chemical Plant No. 16 were rented out illegally to the TerraGroup corporation. During the advent of the Contract Wars the plant became the scene of numerous firefights between USEC and BEAR that ultimately determined control of the industrial district of Tarkov. Later on, in the wake of the chaos the plant facilities became shelter for the remaining civilians, Scavs and military operatives including the scattered remains of the USEC and BEAR contingents.

Features[edit | edit source]

Strategies[edit | edit source]

  • It is suggested to not go kitted in this map, as ambushes are more common in this location than any other. If you die, you lose all your stuff. It is suggested to bring this:
    • A shotgun, AKS-74U, or a standard pistol
      • If you bring a shotgun, do not bring a vest (unless you are using a Saiga-12), and put shotgun shells in your pockets. Same for the handgun, put magazines in the pockets as well.
      • Since most Scavs in the Factory carry shotguns, bring any body armor you have for much better survivability.
  • Factory is a favorite for players who use hatchets to gain loot without any loss of equipment. Be careful of ambushes by these "hatchlings" (players who commonly use hatchets as a main weapon) as they are quick and mobile, and without preparation, can kill you easily in a few strokes.
