The Volcano was an unnamed POI located in the northeast corner of the map. It was added in Season 8, destroying the Container Yard, hence the containers strewn about the outside of the Volcano, and a part of Wailing Woods. It contained The Prisoner's lair and a lot of lava, the inside also included the eggs previously found in Polar Peak. It seems to be the biggest climbable area on the map. It is a large part of the map and seemed to rival Polar Peak.

Volcano Vents[edit | edit source]

Volcano vents are spread all across the map. In season 9 most of them stopped working because of the volcano's major change into Pressure Plant

Map Changes[edit | edit source]

Season 8[edit | edit source]

  • The volcano was added to the map.
  • Week 6: The stone woman statue is now in the lava just outside of the Volcano.
  • Week 8: The stone man statue is now in the lava as well.
  • April 21st: Steam is coming from out of the volcano.
  • April 23rd: The steam in the volcano is darker, turning into smoke with the bottom of it being the color of the lava.
  • April 25th: The smoke gets higher into the sky, making it much more noticeable with the smoke cloud at the top being wider in size. The top of the volcano is giving out a red glow.
  • April 28th: The smoke turns much darker and even higher than before. The top of the smoke starts to spread out, having the appearance of a tornado. The bottom of the smoke now looks like lava.
  • May 1st: The lava in the volcano would splash when ammo and materials were dropped in the area.
  • May 3rd: The smoke is thicker and darker.
  • May 4th: The volcano erupted causing the smoke to become colossal and the volcano to spew out lava and fireballs, heavily damaging Polar Peak and Retail Row and destroying Tilted Towers in the process.

Season 9[edit | edit source]

  • The volcano has been taken over by the government and was renamed to Pressure Plant. It is also now less high.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The volcano vents are close to the cracks from Season 7, however this may be a coincidence.
  • The volcano is surrounded by dense jungle that provide bananas and coconuts.
  • As of v8.30, a specific purple-looking rock near the bottom of the Volcano dispenses wood instead of stone when hit with a harvesting tool.
  • This is the first time two events happened in the same day.
  • This first cause for Tilted Towers to change its name. (Neo Tilted)
