Learn all the different exits and extractions on the Factory map in Escape from Tarkov. This guide explains the requirements for special extractions if you’re not sure why one isn’t working. I also have a few tips on where dangerous areas are.
Every Factory Extract/Exit
Normally I only include one map that I like to use for each area. However, the map above and the one below are great for learning the extracts together. Both maps are slightly outdated, but the bottom one is much easier to understand visually.
Scav only exits are marked with an asterisk.

The joke regarding dangerous areas on Factory is that almost everywhere is dangerous. First, you need to be wary of extract campers because there’s only one PMC escape if you don’t have a Factory Key. While exits are a little easier for Scavs, PMCs are more likely to get killed by campers.
Second, the stairs to the Office Window extract are dangerous because people like to watch down the stairs for easy headshots. This is a quick end to your run if you don’t know better.
In addition to the stairs, the office has a couple of spots for hiding where people will wait for you to enter. This is another risk with people listening to your every step. However, grenades are an option to deal with campers if you think there’s one hiding inside.
Also, be careful of the tunnels underneath a good portion of the map. The tunnels aren’t a good source of loot, but they’re long narrow corridors you can easily get shot from far away in.
No Hidden Stashes on Factory
If you mostly loot hidden stashes/caches on maps like Customs or Shoreline, know that there aren’t any on Factory. Nonetheless, that doesn’t mean there aren’t great ways to do loot runs for farming money.
What makes Factory difficult to run for money is that it’s extremely focused on close-quarters and people listening to every action you make. For a general idea of where valuable loot can spawn, Pestily has a guide from March 2019 running through popular spawns.
Where is the Scav Boss?
Factory is one of the few maps in Escape from Tarkov that doesn’t have a Scav boss. The only maps that currently have a Scav boss are Customs, Reserve, Interchange, and Woods.
