Battlestate Games has recently revealed the scav boss of Factory in a short teaser, and believe me, and it doesn’t look good at all. Actually, it’s terrifying. As we know from before, Factory’s expansion was announced on May 13. The company stated that the release of the Factory expansion is very close and will arrive before Streets of Tarkov. Besides the scale of the map, it will also include the Chief of Factory, the scav boss who operates an enormous cold weapon, a sledgehammer.
The teaser reveals the Scav Boss (Factory’s Chief) in a horrifying scenario, smashing 3 PMCs to death. The sound of his repulsive actions can be heard clearly in the teaser. Hence, the “smash sound” would probably be the indicator of his presence, and his addition to the game would probably bolster the number of players on Factory. The only thing we’re uncertain of is the expansion would increase the supported number of players on Factory.
Factory is currently the smallest map in Escape From Tarkov. It supports up to 4-6 PMCs simultaneously, with a couple of Scavengers seemingly with no force to their opposition, making the map lean towards the PvP environment more heavily. That is exactly why shuffling a Scav Boss in would make a huge difference.
