From the frozen lakes and snow-covered hills surrounding Gora Dam to the massive excavation scars of the Karst River Quarry, North Sector is both remote and inhospitable. Learn how to survive the environment here.   

Expect a frosty reception as you explore the very northern part of Verdansk, comprising of the large Gora Dam structure to the northwest, surrounded by steep mountainous terrain and dotted homesteads, along with cabins and other surprises in the forests. In the central part of this tundra is the Arklov Peak Military Base, a large forward operating center nestled on a plateau close to the mountain range that shares its name. Further east are the belching smokestacks and vast warehouse complex of Karst River Quarry. There are the small villages of Riverside, and Blocs 14, 15, 16, 17, 23, and Lozoff Pass along the southern perimeter, as well as a WHP (World Humanitarian Project) Camp with a few gruesome surprises.

Pro Tips

Counter-Sniping the Dam

Tip #159

Counter-Sniping the Dam

SECTOR 1: VERDANSK NORTH ZONE 1B: BLOC 23, JARVDINSK SPOMENIK, RIVERSIDE

Anticipating trouble at the Dam? Head to the hills or even the Comms Tower near Bloc 23, which will not only give you a great sightline over to the Dam, but also nearly all of Verdansk.

Cell Service

Tip #254

Cell Service

SECTOR 5: VERDANSK EAST ZONE 5E: ZORDAYA PRISON COMPLEX

Inside the Zordaya Prison Complex is an intricate network of cells. There is an abundance of Supply Boxes and other goodies inside, but it can be complicated to get in – and out – of the area. Make sure those pings and comms are on point before your squad ventures into here.

From Downtown!

Tip #201

From Downtown!

SECTOR 3: VERDANSK SOUTHWEST ZONE 3A: VERDANSK HOSPITAL

The front of the Hospital faces Downtown, where multiple building roofs look directly over to it. When travelling to and from this area, be mindful of potential snipers from the East.

Tickets Please!

Tip #206

Tickets Please!

SECTOR 3: VERDANSK SOUTHWEST ZONE 3B: VERDANSK TRAIN STATION

Although the Ticket Hall has a beautiful ceiling, it’s also a potential hot spot, as action can spill in from the West and Main Platforms. If an engagement happens, use the information booth and the stairwell for cover.

Memorial on a Mountaintop

Tip #161

Memorial on a Mountaintop

SECTOR 1: VERDANSK NORTH ZONE 1B: BLOC 23, JARVDINSK SPOMENIK, RIVERSIDE

The Javdinsk Spomenik Memorial is at high elevation. Whether you take to the cliffside or the memorial itself, this place may be a good rest stop and scouting point before heading off into the Military Base or Riverside.

Don’t Get Lost in the Containers

Tip #251

Don’t Get Lost in the Containers

SECTOR 5: VERDANSK EAST ZONE 5D: CITY OF VERDANSK PORT

Cargo Processing has a single dead-end that could hold a surprise… And that surprise can be an enemy player. Be sure to double check this location when travelling through Port, preferably with an explosive or Tactical Grenade.

Do Your Rounds in the Hospital

Tip #202

Do Your Rounds in the Hospital

SECTOR 3: VERDANSK SOUTHWEST ZONE 3A: VERDANSK HOSPITAL

The entire Hospital has an incredibly dense interior section. Search every wing, ward, and even bathroom for loot… And be prepared for close-quarters combat, which these interior spaces encourage.

You Could Fit an Airplane in There

Tip #164

You Could Fit an Airplane in There

SECTOR 1: VERDANSK NORTH ZONE 1C: ARKLOV PEAK MILITARY BASE

The hangars within the Arklov Peak Military Base – and by extension some Verdansk International Airport hangers – are a lot larger than you think. Be prepared for long-range combat indoors, as these hangars were meant to fit planes that could hold the whole lobby.

Set Up Camp

Tip #240

Set Up Camp

SECTOR 5: VERDANSK EAST ZONE 5A: BLOC 18, KARST BRIDGE

One of the secluded locales of Bloc 18 is the Camping Overlook, which has fantastic views of the Stadium and Karst River Bridge. Should your squad be roaming around the Northeast, consider stopping here and taking overwatch before advancing forward.

Trans-Verdanskian Highway

Tip #150

Trans-Verdanskian Highway

Tac Map: Atlas

If you have a vehicle, the Verdansk Highway system leads to nearly every major area on the map. If you don't, it may be wise to avoid the highways and proceed on foot on dirt trails, gulleys, or through dense forests, as you may be a sitting duck if you decide to play in highway traffic.
