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.
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.
Although the Stadium is a massive landmark landing site, those who see too many people landing there could alternatively land in its nearby Suburbs, otherwise known as Bloc 6. It has plenty of buildings to loot from, and is only steps away from the usually more contested Stadium area.
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.
The main area of Bloc 18 east of the Karst River has a few familiar locales: A Fire Station, Gun Store, and Police Station. If you’re searching for guaranteed ammo and other loot that could be a bit out of the way, look no further than here.
An underrated portion of the Airport is the Runway Underpass; its subterranean nature can allow you to travel out of sight, and if a squad is trailing you, those multiple exits could leave them guessing.
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.
Tonight at 10: An Unexpected Vantage Point Over Verdansk Central
The TV Station area is on natural high ground. Although it isn’t as mountainous as Verdansk North, this section of Central Verdansk, it can still provide an elevated vantage point, especially if you sit atop the TV Station or the Comms Tower.
From the Railyard, you can follow the rail tracks by heading southeast, and travel (ideally by vehicle) throughout the entire map, tracing the railroad, and stopping off at multiple destinations. This rail network can be very helpful when learning the geography of Verdansk.
