Welcome to a new series here on Forever Fortnite where we will be taking a closer look at each named location in Battle Royale and explaining why you should land there. Today we look at one of the worst locations on the map, Flush Factory.

Flush Factory is literally the toilet store of the Fortnite map. It’s lacking in loot and building supplies and is rarely near where the storm circles end up. Flush is a tough win, but that doesn’t mean it isn’t possible.

Flush Factory is one of the least popular drops on the Fortnite map, which might actually work in its favor if you are a newer player looking to take your time and not feel overwhelmed by action.

Still, this place is a hard sell.

Why you should drop Flush Factory

You shouldn’t. But if you are, there are a few advantages to the area that we will boost as much as possible for this section of the post. The loot at Flush is good for a solo match. It can be good enough for duos as well, and now that it is situated just South of Valhalla (Viking boat and base), you can hit that area and rift to the storm circle after a quick loot.

Flush Factory has a few chests in each building and occasionally spawns chests in the trucks outside. There are random houses in the area that also provide loot.

Flush is also quiet. It’s rarely a popular spot to go and there’s a good chance you’ll be alone for the entirety of your looting session. As previously mentioned, it’s a decent spot for beginners to learn the ropes (just make sure you’re grabbing meds to heal up from the storm run).

Why you shouldn’t drop Flush Factory

For every reason imaginable. Do you like loot? Do you like action? Do you hate being stuck in the storm, running for your life? If you answered yes to any of these questions, avoid Flush Factory.

Flush could benefit from a few more chest spawns, as well as some added materials in the general vicinity. The fields surrounding Flush are sparse and most people dropping in the area are either going to Snobby Shores or Valahalla.

Forever Fortnite’s own David Miniel  makes the case for changing Flush, stating that the area is already very unpopular and there is a lot of room to work with if they flushed this location.

Where do the chests spawn?

They don’t. There are none. Joking, of course. Flush has a couple of chest spawns in the main three buildings and the surrounding area.

If you are dropping Flush and by chance, you happen to see another player, duo or squad in the area, grab one of the chests in the trucks in the parking lot of Flush to make sure you aren’t beat to a chest on the inside. You’ll have the advantage working into the building with a weapon while the others loot the scarce area.

Here is a map of the chest spawns at Flush Factory.

Overall grade for Flush Factory

The niche group of players that enjoy Flush Factory aren’t going to be happy, but there isn’t much we can give to Flush in terms of positives. The loot is low, the material are low and the location often leaves players running for the storm.

While there are rifts in the area to the North, it just makes entirely more sense to land in the Viking base, where there is better loot to begin with. Sorry, Flush fans, but there isn’t much to see here.

Grade: F
