A large flood plain of commercial structures, residential high-rise tenement blocks, and two graveyards (one filled with the long-dead, the other with plane parts). The main airport is also here, and ablaze. Welcome to West Sector.  

The western edge of Verdansk is comprised of a mainly flat flood-plain south of the Gora River. It is dominated by the large International Airport, now partially in ruins and ripe to become a conflagration zone. East is the sprawling Airport Maintenance yard, and south is a commercial district comprised of a large Storage Town, and the one-stop shop known as the Atlas Superstore. Further south still are the initial residential areas of West Verdansk; the Torsk Bloc of tenement housing, and structures surrounding the main Graveyard. Try not to join the long deceased. Over on the more rural western edge of the map are warehouses, a small wind farm, and another cemetery; this one filled with the skeletons of rusting airlines, known to locals as Zhokov Boneyard.

Pro Tips

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.

Seek the Hide

Tip #171

Seek the Hide

SECTOR 1: VERDANSK NORTH ZONE 1D: KARST RIVER QUARRY

The watchtower in the woods north of Quarry has an incredible view of its northeastern section. If the collapse isn’t an issue and you like to snipe, consider finding it after you get a loadout that’s appropriate for extreme long-range combat.

Living in an SUV Down by the River

Tip #219

Living in an SUV Down by the River

SECTOR 4: VERDANSK CENTRAL AND SOUTH ZONE 4A: GRAZNA BRIDGE, BCH4 TV STATION

Logically, one would think to drive over the rivers, but given that they are both barren, it is possible to take a ground vehicle down the Gora and Karst River. In fact, navigating along the rivers can be a faster, and possibly sneakier, way to drive up and down Verdansk.

Planned Community Apartments

Tip #210

Planned Community Apartments

SECTOR 3: VERDANSK SOUTHWEST ZONE 3C: BARAKETT PROMENADE WEST

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.

End of the Line

Tip #208

End of the Line

SECTOR 3: VERDANSK SOUTHWEST ZONE 3B: VERDANSK TRAIN STATION

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.

Boneyard: Far From Bone Dry

Tip #196

Boneyard: Far From Bone Dry

SECTOR 2: VERDANSK WEST ZONE 2H: ZHOKOV BONEYARD

From the hangers to the numerous broken planes, the Boneyard has no shortage of loot despite being a dumping ground for scrap metal. Follow your Tac Map to see where Contract drops are and be meticulous when exploring the area to find some serious loot.

Elevate Your Senses

Tip #226

Elevate Your Senses

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

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.

Tac Map: Atlas

If you are the leading team in Plunder and need extra Cash, or want to avoid confrontation, consider exploring the far-flung areas of Verdansk away from the action. They could have unopened Supply Boxes or Contracts that could provide that final push without much confrontation.

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.

TV Station: Broadcasting Live from Central Verdansk

Tip #220

TV Station: Broadcasting Live from Central Verdansk

SECTOR 4: VERDANSK CENTRAL AND SOUTH ZONE 4A: GRAZNA BRIDGE, BCH4 TV STATION

Veterans of the Call of Duty franchise will find the TV Station to be familiar ground: the ground floor shares a layout to the Call of Duty 4®: Modern Warfare map Broadcast. Just don’t let those rose-tinted glasses blind you from this hotly contested zone.
