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.
The Switchbacks and Trails/Karst Transformer locations both have incredible sightlines over to the TV Station and Stadium, two main stops before hitting downtown. Given their obscurity, it may not be a bad idea to scout here prior to your assault on either locale.
A collection of wooden pallets just outside the main warehouses can be an excellent place to sneak about and force close-quarters combat… Just don’t get stuck in here with an ATV, or you may have to abandon it.
In general, the area south of Quarry before hitting Central Verdansk has only a few villages and points of interest that are far between each other. Be prepared to either travel by vehicle through here or prepare for long-range shootouts and using natural cover for survival.
The Verdansk Train Station also has another transit hub – a Bus Terminal – which may not be as popular as the sprawling station. With some loot opportunities here and in the Military Checkpoint, don’t hesitate to check this area before – or after – exploring the main Train Station.
All Fire Stations have solid loot potential, including in their tall towers. These towers are often fantastic sniping perches with solid cover, so if you're looking to take the high ground, they are reliable sources for it.
The homes within the Novi Grazna Hills cul-de-sac could be a great landing spot, as there are multiple opportunities for loot and easy access to the busier Barakett Promenade area. If you are fighting within this area, you could use the smoke from the helicopter to help conceal you from long-range fire.
The Stadium roof can only be accessible via parachute or helicopter and does not have any loot on it, but if you have a solid loadout, landing on this dome could give you an incredible 360-degree view of the surrounding area.
The Swimming Pool could have some loot lying at the bottom, but it’s not without risk. If you come here as a group, it may be wise to have one player take the dive, and the others on lookout from the pool deck.
You can quickly learn where you are in Verdansk by a few area markers: each major location has a name over it while infiltrating the Warzone, the Tac Map also has these major location names, and, at the top of your HUD, it will show the area you are currently in when applicable.
