Steamy Stacks is a named Point Of Interest in Battle Royale added in Chapter 2 Season 1, located inside the coordinates G2 and H2, east of Craggy Cliffs, and north of Dirty Docks. It is a massive nuclear power plant using the power of the CUBE, run by a company called Kevolution Energy.

There are power lines coming out of this location connecting it to Retail Row, the power lines are actually Ziplines that can be ridden all the way to Retail Row. Each of the buildings in the location are numbered to 5, but for some reason there is no building 1, it starts at 2. Steamy Stacks has a total of 22 chests.

Building 2 (Reactor Hall)[edit | edit source]

The main building in the location. It has a lobby and a large room containing the main reactor in a pool of purple liquid, which most likely acts as a coolant. This is very similar to a real-life pool-type nuclear reactor. The purple color of the coolant is likely caused by the cube. This room is seems to be highly contaminated and radioactive (or at the very least dangerous for some reason) as all the the entrances are accessed through two lead lined doors. The radioactive liquid doesn't, however, have any actual effects on the players who enter the room or the liquid. Unusually, it's possible to fish in this liquid. There is the primary control room that overlooks the reactor room, as well as a smaller one with pink donuts on the control panel. This is a reference to the popular TV show "The Simpsons", where Homer Simpson, who likes donuts, works as a safety inspector at the Springfield nuclear power plant.

Building 3 (Transformer Yard)[edit | edit source]

The smallest of the buildings by far, it is a building for the substation that the power lines come out of, connecting the location to Retail Row.

Building 4 (Turbine Hall)[edit | edit source]

The building houses the turbine, the pipes coming from building 2 appear to be headed to the turbine building. The electricity created from the turbine is sent into building 3.

Building 5 (Pumphouse)[edit | edit source]

The building is located behind the cooling towers. The pumphouse is used to pump the waste product into the cooling towers. It has a large garage/warehouse.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • This location was originally meant to be called "Power Plant" as hinted in the game files. It was more than likely changed due to being too similar to a POI name on the original Battle Royale map - Pressure Plant.
  • Steamy Stacks prefabs can be found in creative, under "Power Plant", the location's original name.
