Tac Map: Atlas Update – Rebirth Island

In addition to the existing interactive map of Verdansk with over 330 Points of Interest, the Tac Map: Atlas chapter now includes Rebirth Island, the research facility and prison where fast and frenetic combat reign supreme.

This Rebirth Island chapter includes the following new intel:

32 Points of Interest

From the Chemical Engineering Buildings to the Security Area and the massive Prison Block in between, our guide marks 32 notable landmarks and areas within Rebirth Island to base your squad’s next winning strategy around. Each Point of Interest also includes screenshots to help you familiarize yourself with the new map, along with detailed breakdowns of what is included within each area and how it fits specific combat scenarios.

Ammo Caches, Buy Station, and Vehicle Spawn Locations

Although Vehicle and Buy Station spawns in Warzone are random, we scoured every empty plot, parking space, and odd space on Rebirth Island to learn where these can appear.

20 Fresh Tips        

Centered around the new Points of Interest, get the advanced tactics that can help you master Rebirth Island with your entire squad.

Captured: Prisoner of Warzone – Verdansk and Rebirth Island Gulags

Although getting a second chance at life in Warzone works the same in a Battle Royale match, the arena for your nail-biting 1v1 will look different in Season One.

In anticipation of this change, the Captured: Prisoner of Warzone section in the guide’s fourth chapter has been updated and split for Verdansk and Rebirth Island.

This updated chapter includes a closer look and basic strategies for the new Nuketown-inspired Gulag in Verdansk, as well as a sneak peek at the Rebirth Island Gulag for Mini BR matches, which will be available in the near future.
