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.
With a helipad on the roof, the TV Station could have a helicopter ready for you to pilot out of this area. Alternatively, if you start to hear the whirr of those blades, look up towards the roof and you could catch a squad flying away from here.
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.
If you want to potentially get the jump on players at the Dam or other points northwest, skip them and land towards Riverside. With it being at a less extreme location on the map and having plenty of buildings for loot opportunities, your squad could set some ambushes for enemies sprinting towards a safe zone.
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 massive runway could be an extremely deadly area; not taking cover behind the dolosse and whatever else is scattered on it might leave you open to enemies in the Terminal or Control Tower. In other words, it’s best to clear the runway.
Need to take out a squad who has a penthouse suite in Downtown? The JOKR launcher can target objects on the roof and deliver a powerful payload from the sky. Or, fight fire with fire by taking up residency on another rooftop.
The Superstore has multiple open shelves, both at ground level and above, which can make for some unique engagement opportunities. If you sense that an enemy is within the store, it doesn’t hurt to check every aisle, or use a tool that can give recon such as a UAV or Heartbeat Sensor.
