Elektrozavodsk, "Elektro" for short, is a town located on the southern coast of Chernarus, east of Chernogorsk. Many building varieties can be found here, and it is a hub of activity due to both its size and its role as a spawn location.

The name is derived from "Electric/Industrial Factory" in Russian.


Well-known as a dangerous and gritty place, the city of Elektrozavodsk can be unforgiving. It is comprised mostly of multi-story buildings and complexes, resulting in short lines of sight and close-quarters encounters. As a large city, it also tends to spawn an equally large number of Infected. Extreme caution should be exercised at all times here, to say the least.

Everything a new survivor would need can be found here thanks to the wide variety and a sheer number of buildings. Nearby is a power plant that serves most of the region.

It is the namesake of the evacuation site just south-west of the church.

Power Plant[]

This plant is the only one of its kind in Chernarus, the electricity it produces travels all over the countryside via high-powered lines that pass between sub-stations and eventually make their way to end stations in various towns. The power lines can be used as navigational aid when traveling inland.
