An old fan-favorite location could be making its way back soon to the world of Fortnite Battle Royale.

There are in-game indications that the factories that were originally near Dusty Depot (now called Dusty Divot) could be in the process of being rebuilt.

A Reddit user by the name of ‘FaZe-Okunola‘ posted a screenshot he took from the game showing several new trucks that appeared at Dusty Divot after the v5.1.0 Update, which went live on July 24.

As the user points out, the items on these trucks, and the trucks themselves, all resemble the ones found in the original factories.

Boys… the factories had two toilets, trucks and some pallets… is this what we think it is?

Since the start of Season 4, Epic Games has updated the map in various ways on nearly a weekly basis, which makes the prospect of the factories being built throughout Season 5 a considerable possibility.

Judging from the overwhelmingly positive and excited comments to the Reddit post, it appears that the player-base would be more than happy to see the iconic landmark on the map once again.

Often referred to as simply “factories,” the nameless location was one of the more popular areas on the map, as players often either landed there or stopped on their way by. 

However, the location was destroyed at the end of Season 3, when a large meteor struck the area and created a large crater, turning Dusty Depot in Dusty Divot.

A number of weapons and items have been either vaulted or unvaulted in Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 5, including some fan favorites and old classics. 

Fortnite Season 5 officially dropped on Wednesday, December 2, bringing a number of major changes with it. As specified in the new update’s patch notes, the game is going to look pretty different going forward.

Some big map changes hint toward a slow revert back to the old map, with the likes of Flush Factory and Dusty Depot starting to come back, which is more than enough reason to get excited.

And, although new weapons such as the Dragon Shotgun have arrived, one thing all players will be looking for is the old items that have returned from the vault, and those which have been placed back in it.

Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 5 is named Zero Point — and brings some fun changes to the game.

Vaulted weapons

Vaulted weapons are those that have been stashed away, unplayable in the game, that might one day return to the game.

Here’s what we know has been vaulted:

  • Revolver
  • Fire Trap
  • Scoped Assault Rifle
  • Epic/Legendary Pump Shotgun
  • Legendary Combat Shotgun
  • Scar assault rifle
  • Epic/Legendary Tac SMG

Unvaulted weapons

Of course, with some weapons leaving the game, some are making their grand return. Here’s what:

  • Charge Shotgun
  • Double Barrel Shotgun
  • P90
  • SMG
  • Storm Scout Rifle
  • Tactical Shotgun
  • Balloons

So, that’s everything that’s been vaulted or unvaulted according to the patch notes for Fortnite Season 5, and there’s definitely some there that we’re going to miss, such as the Scar assault rifles and Pump shotguns, but the Tactical Shotgun and P90 making a return could make up for that and keep the weapons feeling fresh and fun.

With a number of big streamers starting to switch back to Fortnite, it looks like Season 5 could be one of the biggest yet — so have fun destroying those new and returning players!
