Few points of interest are as complex as the Railyard, a network of warehouses with a massive Gravel Chute Tower as its landmark. Although it may take a while to learn every room, sightline, and route through the area, doing so will make you into a master of this popular area.
Tonight at 10: An Unexpected Vantage Point Over Verdansk Central
The TV Station area is on natural high ground. Although it isn’t as mountainous as Verdansk North, this section of Central Verdansk, it can still provide an elevated vantage point, especially if you sit atop the TV Station or the Comms Tower.
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.
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.
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 two Comms Towers are the highest points within the Military Base area. Although they come with a bit of risk, snipers who want to scout ahead for their squad should definitely put both of these points of interest on their radar.
The Train Station has three stairwells that allow for roof access: Main Concourse, one in the East Concourse, and one in the U-shaped building northwest of the Main Platform. Know that flanks can come from either of these three staircases and consider setting up equipment traps here to cover your six.
Snipers will find the vista from the Upper Woods area an underrated part of the Torsk Bloc zone. Come here after you loot the Bloc for a sniper rifle or other long-range weapon, and you may get some intel on potential enemies at the Hospital, Train Yard, or Airport Maintenance.
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.
