From the frozen lakes and snow-covered hills surrounding Gora Dam to the massive excavation scars of the Karst River Quarry, North Sector is both remote and inhospitable. Learn how to survive the environment here.   

Expect a frosty reception as you explore the very northern part of Verdansk, comprising of the large Gora Dam structure to the northwest, surrounded by steep mountainous terrain and dotted homesteads, along with cabins and other surprises in the forests. In the central part of this tundra is the Arklov Peak Military Base, a large forward operating center nestled on a plateau close to the mountain range that shares its name. Further east are the belching smokestacks and vast warehouse complex of Karst River Quarry. There are the small villages of Riverside, and Blocs 14, 15, 16, 17, 23, and Lozoff Pass along the southern perimeter, as well as a WHP (World Humanitarian Project) Camp with a few gruesome surprises.

Pro Tips

Warehouse Network

Tip #243

Warehouse Network

SECTOR 5: VERDANSK EAST ZONE 5B: GORENGARD LUMBER YARD

The trio of Lumber Yard Warehouses is filled with loot but can be tricky to navigate. If you get lost, remember where the main open bridge is – towards the east – and make your way over there.

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.

Friends in High Places

Tip #235

Friends in High Places

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

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.

Don’t Look Down

Tip #229

Don’t Look Down

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

Your parachute is your best friend when taking the high ground in Downtown. Remember that you can pull the chute if you are taking a potentially fatal plunge, and parachuting through the city could be one of the fastest modes of transportation.

Air Traffic (Tower) Control

Tip #179

Air Traffic (Tower) Control

SECTOR 2: VERDANSK WEST ZONE 2A: VERDANSK INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT

The Control Tower gives by far the best view of the entire airport, and even areas of North Verdansk, but it may not take long for other squads to catch onto a sniper up here. Worst case scenario: parachute away from the airport, as there are fewer points of interest there, which may translate to fewer enemies.

Mileage May Vary

Tip #147

Mileage May Vary

Tac Map: Atlas

Although a lot of potential item and equipment spawn points are shown on the guide map, not all are guaranteed. Always look to your in-game Tac Map for the locations of Vehicles, Contracts, and other points of interest for your specific game session.

Straight to Maintenance

Tip #184

Straight to Maintenance

SECTOR 2: VERDANSK WEST ZONE 2B: AIRPORT MAINTENANCE

Because the Control Tower, Terminal, and Atlas Superstore could be hotly contested zones, it may be wise to forgo them when dropping in – if you see plenty of parachutes opening over them, that is – and aiming for something in the Airport Maintenance section, which has plenty of points of interest to explore.

Gate Check

Tip #225

Gate Check

SECTOR 4: VERDANSK CENTRAL AND SOUTH ZONE 4C: VERDANSK STADIUM

While the interior of the Stadium is currently inaccessible, the various gates that would lead into it have an underrated number of loot opportunities. Just be sure to use the security features and stadium architecture for cover, since Downtown Tavorsk skyscrapers have solid views of the Stadium’s southeast-facing side.

Graveyard Shift

Tip #193

Graveyard Shift

SECTOR 2: VERDANSK WEST ZONE 2F: VERDANSK GRAVEYARD

Unsure of where to start looting within the Verdansk Graveyard area? The nearby Pharmacy, Bank, and Police Station be a reliable stop during your campaign for an end game loadout. It’s not a bad idea to land here first, then spread out to the rest of the area.

Frozen Assets

Tip #157

Frozen Assets

SECTOR 1: VERDANSK NORTH ZONE 1A: GORA DAM, GORA TUNNEL, BLOC 17, BLOC 16

If you are playing Plunder and need a place to deposit some Cash that’s out of the way, there is a Cash Deposit Site right near the frozen river. While you may have to deal with snipers from the Dam, it’s pretty remote compared to one in more familiar locales or in a suburb.
