The Switchbacks and Trails/Karst Transformer locations both have incredible sightlines over to the TV Station and Stadium, two main stops before hitting downtown. Given their obscurity, it may not be a bad idea to scout here prior to your assault on either locale.
The skyscrapers may command your attention, but there is plenty of loot to be found in the smaller apartments and shops in Downtown. Don’t be afraid to stay at the ground level; you may just find what you need to complete your loadout.
While the Kart Racing Track can be a fun diversion from the Warzone, be sure to check its stands and the nearby warehouse for potential loot. You never know if Verdansk’s resident kart racing champion left their prize money lying around here.
Craving some close-quarters combat? Coax the enemy team to meet you in the Training Course, which is fairly cluttered and complex for being such a small footprint in Verdansk. Just watch out for any operators who may be refereeing from the watchtower.
The parking garage is deceptively complicated for an area. From military tents to ground loot taking up parking spaces, it’s not a bad idea to explore every part of this lot or decide to land here against the more obvious Airport areas.
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 Cliff Roads of Quarry may leave you completely exposed, but still has incredible views over the potential action down below. Just watch your six when you’re up here: you’ll have to set up some protection or a buddy behind you, as there isn’t a border to save you from a flank from the north.
This area may be one of the most unique within Verdansk, but don’t feel overwhelmed: there are plenty of familiar buildings, such as police stations, fire stations, pharmacies, and a gun store, that can help ease you into fights in the big city.
Multiple parked trains within the Train Station could contain plenty of loot, and otherwise serve as great cover pieces. While keeping mind of your exposure to the outside through the open windows and doors, be prepared for close-quarters fights with fellow train surfers within the narrow train cars.
