Scrapyard will be familiar ground for Call of Duty veterans, which may make it a hotly contested area if it is part of the safe area. Prepare for close quarters combat within the fuselages, warehouses, and office… And don’t forget to check the catwalk of Scrapyard Warehouse 3, one that’s been a notorious sniper perch for decades.
The Barakett Market has numerous stalls to explore or use as cover while exploring the Barakett Promenade. With how expansive and complex this outdoor market is, it’s not a bad idea to set up some equipment traps or ambushes in between the stalls.
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.
Given that the northeast border of Verdansk has few structures, the main roads can be dangerous as they are the only points of interest. If you have to travel out here, consider cutting through the natural environment or rolling along the Karst River.
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.
Whether its atop the Fire Station or the Upper Dam, few vistas compare to what you’ll get atop the Gora Dam. Come here with the longest scope you have and look down below for any enemies worth engaging with.
Barakett Promenade East boasts double-digit points of interest that add up to over 20 buildings with interior spaces. When exploring here, it may be wise to find a secondary weapon that’s built for close-quarters engagements, which are typical when fighting in building interiors.
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.
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.
