Once a hub of activity for both commuters and homeowners, Southwest Sector features many notable landmarks, as well as out-of-the-way places. Learn the lay of the land all the way to the southern coast.  

Segmented along the northern perimeter by the P411 Highway, this Sector stretches southwards from the dilapidated splendor of the Verdansk Train Station to the Kastovian coastal road. Southwest Verdansk also features high-density housing, and the largest number of market stalls, shops, and other closed-down kiosks seen across the map. There are a number of immense locations, like the Hospital, Ferris Wheel, and the long Barakett Market Promenade that stretches almost completely from west to east. Further south near the coast are newer housing tracts, another monolithic war memorial, and a few isolated cottages as you reach the edge of the map.

Pro Tips

An Aside on Riverside

Tip #162

An Aside on Riverside

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

If you want to potentially get the jump on players at the Dam or other points northwest, skip them and land towards Riverside. With it being at a less extreme location on the map and having plenty of buildings for loot opportunities, your squad could set some ambushes for enemies sprinting towards a safe zone.

Elevate Your Senses

Tip #226

Elevate Your Senses

SECTOR 4: VERDANSK CENTRAL AND SOUTH ZONE 4D: DOWNTOWN TAVORSK DISTRICT

Downtown boasts some of the tallest buildings in the game, which translates to the best 360-degre vistas. Even if you are in an area that’s around Downtown, always watch for sniper scope glints coming from any one of these tall towers.

To Loot or Not to Loot… (Probably Loot)

Tip #160

To Loot or Not to Loot… (Probably Loot)

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

The hamlets that make up the far northwest side of Verdansk are far from densely populated areas, making them hidden gems for finding untouched Supply Boxes. Beware, however: given its place on the map, it may not be a viable looting place during other games and only for Plunder.

Hospital Hills

Tip #198

Hospital Hills

SECTOR 3: VERDANSK SOUTHWEST ZONE 3A: VERDANSK HOSPITAL

Between Verdansk’s Train Station and Hospital is a wooded hillside with prime views of both locales. If your squad is looking for an unconventional way to get between these two major zones, or wants to do some scouting, head to these hills.

Living in an SUV Down by the River

Tip #219

Living in an SUV Down by the River

SECTOR 4: VERDANSK CENTRAL AND SOUTH ZONE 4A: GRAZNA BRIDGE, BCH4 TV STATION

Logically, one would think to drive over the rivers, but given that they are both barren, it is possible to take a ground vehicle down the Gora and Karst River. In fact, navigating along the rivers can be a faster, and possibly sneakier, way to drive up and down Verdansk.

Picking Up Scraps in the Scrapyard

Tip #197

Picking Up Scraps in the Scrapyard

SECTOR 2: VERDANSK WEST ZONE 2H: ZHOKOV BONEYARD

Scrapyard will be familiar ground for Call of Duty veterans, which may make it a hotly contested area if it is part of the safe area. Prepare for close quarters combat within the fuselages, warehouses, and office… And don’t forget to check the catwalk of Scrapyard Warehouse 3, one that’s been a notorious sniper perch for decades.

TV Station: Broadcasting Live from Central Verdansk

Tip #220

TV Station: Broadcasting Live from Central Verdansk

SECTOR 4: VERDANSK CENTRAL AND SOUTH ZONE 4A: GRAZNA BRIDGE, BCH4 TV STATION

Veterans of the Call of Duty franchise will find the TV Station to be familiar ground: the ground floor shares a layout to the Call of Duty 4®: Modern Warfare map Broadcast. Just don’t let those rose-tinted glasses blind you from this hotly contested zone.

Run the Course

Tip #166

Run the Course

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

Craving some close-quarters combat? Coax the enemy team to meet you in the Training Course, which is fairly cluttered and complex for being such a small footprint in Verdansk. Just watch out for any operators who may be refereeing from the watchtower.

A Beacon of Health

Tip #200

A Beacon of Health

SECTOR 3: VERDANSK SOUTHWEST ZONE 3A: VERDANSK HOSPITAL

Verdansk Hospital’s Northwest Tower has the best high ground spot in the Southwest, allowing you to see over to Downtown, the Promenade, and points west. While up here, use the perimeter wall and hospital letters for cover, lest you end up in the ER.

Clean Up on Aisle 2

Tip #189

Clean Up on Aisle 2

SECTOR 2: VERDANSK WEST ZONE 2E: ATLAS SUPERSTORE

The Superstore has multiple open shelves, both at ground level and above, which can make for some unique engagement opportunities. If you sense that an enemy is within the store, it doesn’t hurt to check every aisle, or use a tool that can give recon such as a UAV or Heartbeat Sensor.
