Sludgy Swamp is a Location in Fortnite: Battle Royale added in Chapter 2: Season 7 to the island Apollo. The location is the remnants of Slurpy Swamp that were not abducted by The Mothership. It is located inside the coordinates C6 and C7, south of Weeping Woods, northwest of Misty Meadows, and southeast of Holly Hatchery.
- Update v17.30:
- The Mothership has begun abducting the location, breaking it apart and lifting it into the air. The Factory, a few chunks of land, and a warehouse are now suspended in the air by the Mothership Tractor Beam. Henchmen Duo also now spawn here to Observe, observing the abduction.
- August 5th - The chunks have risen higher.
- August 8th - The Factory has rotated.
- Content Update v17.30:
- Part of the Factory and several other buildings have been abducted into The Mothership. The Tractor Beam has disappeared and so the low-gravity effect is gone.
- Update v17.40:
- Henchmen Duo no longer spawn here.
- Update v17.50:
- The pools of Slurp water disappeared as the Slurp pipes had been barred; thus Slurpy Swamp is now named Sludgy Swamp.
- Sludgy Swamp is a great source for gaining Shield and Health via the Slurp Barrels that can be found around the location.
Buildings and places that are part of Sludgy Swamp.
- Even if Slurpy Swamp was abducted in v17.30, it is only in v17.50 that the POI changes its name.
- Before v17.50, even though there was no longer the Slurp factory, the pools of slurp water were still present.
- In v17.50 Slurpy Swamp is renamed to Sludgy Swamp because the remains are only ruins and the industries have disappeared.
- It is unknown if only the remnants are part of Sludgy Swamp and the parts in The Mothership are still part of the overall Slurpy Swamp; to be safe, both are included here.
- Interestingly, the remains of an Unnamed IO Camp set up by the Imagined Order can be found on the western side of the location, near the remains of the warehouses. This is unusual because the last incarnation of Slurpy Swamp did not have this tent and small communications tower there, whereas they are present here.
- This could indicate that the location is still under the watch, and possible control, of the IO.
