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.
Given the verticality of Downtown, use it to your advantage by coordinating team strategies around it. Maybe a teammate can take overwatch on a building and make callouts while the others travel on foot, or each team member takes a section of a building when sweeping for loot.
The main area of Bloc 18 east of the Karst River has a few familiar locales: A Fire Station, Gun Store, and Police Station. If you’re searching for guaranteed ammo and other loot that could be a bit out of the way, look no further than here.
Travelling along the frozen Gora River? You may want to take cover within the Frozen Islands; they are pretty much your only source of cover when traversing down the river, which is on low ground compared to the surrounding areas.

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.
The Zordaya Prison Complex Yard can hold valuable loot and even vehicles, but the guard towers and wall can house enemy sharpshooters. Be cautious when wandering out onto the yard, lest you be sent to the Gulag.
Compared to the rest of Krovnik Farmland, its Southern Farm section is like a small Suburb. Be sure to check every house for loot – and enemies – and if you can take the risk, try climbing up on the water tower for an impressive view of the Farmland area.
If you are playing Plunder and need a place to deposit some Cash that’s out of the way, there is a Cash Deposit Site right near the frozen river. While you may have to deal with snipers from the Dam, it’s pretty remote compared to one in more familiar locales or in a suburb.
The various apartments within the Torsk Bloc have interiors to explore. Whether you are looking for loot or for enemies, be sure to sweep every floor and room, along with the Twin Apartment Complex roof that could be a popular sniping perch.
