The Base Camp near the Living Quarters has plenty of tents and portable stations to take cover within from those on top of the Surveillance Tower, Prison Block, or on top of the Living Quarters buildings. They also may contain Supply Boxes and various loadout items, making it a worthwhile stop as you head up the island.
King of the Hill
Rebirth Island is filled with uneven terrain; its highest elevation point is at its center, with the Security Area, Factory, and Docks all located barely above sea level. During any and all infiltrations, know that fighting uphill will often leave your squad at a disadvantage, so plan those drops accordingly.
One Packed Penitentiary
It’s no secret that the Prison Block will be the focal point for action on Rebirth Island, only getting less popular if the circle decides to roll over it. Expect flanks from all sides within this massive complex, knowing your loadout’s strengths to deal with threats in whatever floor you fight through.
The Yellow Door
The Headquarters Command Center’s first floor has a locked yellow door; those who have the code could crack open the secrets of Rebirth Island, and might get a reward for doing so… Just remember to pack some CQB weapons to deal with fellow Easter Egg hunters who lurk inside this building.
A Scenic Trip Up the West Coast
Rebirth Island’s west road from the Construction Site past the Harbor up to the Bioweapons Lab is less busy than the east in terms of structure. Consider travelling up and down here to potentially find some leftover Supply Boxes, especially if the vehicles and Buy Stations don’t appear along this road.
Engineering a Longshot
The fourth floor of the Chemical Engineering Office has two windows facing south, both of which are great for counter-sniping players on the Water Tower and Prison Block. One of them also avoids a large tree and offers a direct line of sight to the top of the Surveillance Tower, which might be useful for those looking to hit an extreme longshot.
Recon for Decon
Contrary to most buildings, the Decon (short for Decontamination) Zone is less skewed toward CQB weapons, as the main shower area has plenty of unobstructed space. Weapons that do well at mid-range, such as assault rifles, are better suited inside this complex, especially when fighting those firing down through the skylights.
Although it may seem trivial, learning which cells are open in each hallway within the Prison Block can help your squad build your loadouts up in the early game and, more importantly, prevent ambushes. The cells are just big enough to fit an Operator, making them prime for close-quarters combatants squatting in wait for an unsuspecting target.
Reinforcements by the Boatload
Due to its size, Rebirth Island is prime for multi-party engagements, particularly when playing the Resurgence game mode where respawns can lead to lone wolves diving back in for revenge. If your squad does not want to get overwhelmed, try waiting for fights in progress to settle, then pick off the remaining survivors and collect the spoils of war for yourselves.
Out on the Yard
Whether you come here for the Buy Station or in search of some Loadout Boxes, be prepared for a fight when travelling through the Recreation Yard. With zero cover on the yard itself, only your precise aim and equipment use can help you exit in one piece.
