The Verdansk Train Station also has another transit hub – a Bus Terminal – which may not be as popular as the sprawling station. With some loot opportunities here and in the Military Checkpoint, don’t hesitate to check this area before – or after – exploring the main Train Station.
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.
Elevator shafts are a prime place to set up an ambush or protection via equipment pieces. Be cautious when deciding to head up an elevator shaft; it may be a safer option to take the stairwell and potentially flank those in waiting.
The hangars within the Arklov Peak Military Base – and by extension some Verdansk International Airport hangers – are a lot larger than you think. Be prepared for long-range combat indoors, as these hangars were meant to fit planes that could hold the whole lobby.
The Stadium roof can only be accessible via parachute or helicopter and does not have any loot on it, but if you have a solid loadout, landing on this dome could give you an incredible 360-degree view of the surrounding area.
While the interior of the Stadium is currently inaccessible, the various gates that would lead into it have an underrated number of loot opportunities. Just be sure to use the security features and stadium architecture for cover, since Downtown Tavorsk skyscrapers have solid views of the Stadium’s southeast-facing side.
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.
You can quickly learn where you are in Verdansk by a few area markers: each major location has a name over it while infiltrating the Warzone, the Tac Map also has these major location names, and, at the top of your HUD, it will show the area you are currently in when applicable.
WHP tents are usually stocked with loot, so a whole camp in rural Verdansk can be an oasis amid the snowy mountainous forest. Come here for the items and stay for the potential close quarters combat between the tents.
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.
