It is possible to reach the top of every crane in Port, although it requires some parachuting. If you do, you’ll be rewarded with one incredible 360-degree sightline that goes from across the Karst River all the way to the Gulag.
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.
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.
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.
Between Verdansk’s Train Station and Hospital is a wooded hillside with prime views of both locales. If your squad is looking for an unconventional way to get between these two major zones, or wants to do some scouting, head to these hills.
By way of sheer convenience, the northern border of Verdansk between the Military Base and Quarry may be less travelled than the highway system. If you’re trying to travel between these two places, consider taking the cliff roads to potentially maintain a lower profile.
Although there are no buildings around it, the Crash Site should be on your stop list when travelling through North Verdansk. The downed plane’s fuselage may have some untouched loot that could be what you need to finish your loadout.
Krovnik Farmland features plenty of natural elements untouched by industry. It’s great to travel through with a vehicle, as there are fewer objects to hit, but when you’re on the run… Cover may be limited.
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.
A tunnel on the west side of the Zordaya Prison Complex allows for discrete entry/exit point to the complex in multiple areas, such as the Gulag Showers and the main cell hub. If you’re looking to escape – or enter – the complex, try jumping into this tunnel.
