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.
Because the various apartment buildings within the Barakett Promenade look the same, your squad may be confused if you tell them you are “in an apartment.” So, it may be good to ping the exact area you are in, or use the compass or surrounding points of interest as guideposts.
Given the verticality of Downtown, use it to your advantage by coordinating team strategies around it. Maybe a teammate can take overwatch on a building and make callouts while the others travel on foot, or each team member takes a section of a building when sweeping for loot.
A tunnel on the west side of the Zordaya Prison Complex allows for discrete entry/exit point to the complex in multiple areas, such as the Gulag Showers and the main cell hub. If you’re looking to escape – or enter – the complex, try jumping into this tunnel.
Grandma’s House may feel familiar to some, and with that comes a tip they know too well: check its attic, as it may have a squad taking a breather in here after looting around the Quarry or Lozoff Pass.
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.
Krovnik Farmland features plenty of natural elements untouched by industry. It’s great to travel through with a vehicle, as there are fewer objects to hit, but when you’re on the run… Cover may be limited.
Although the guide sections out Verdansk into five sectors and over 330 points of interest, combat doesn't just take place within those areas. Be mindful of how battles can spill over from sector to sector, especially when it comes to long-range engagements.
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.
Thirty-five self-storage garages are in Storage Town. Almost all of them have at least one garage door open… With their wares available to the first team who can collect them. Leave no storage locker unchecked in Storage Town, lest you miss out on some Legendary Loot.
