If you have a vehicle, the Verdansk Highway system leads to nearly every major area on the map. If you don't, it may be wise to avoid the highways and proceed on foot on dirt trails, gulleys, or through dense forests, as you may be a sitting duck if you decide to play in highway traffic.
Within the Practice Modes, an SAS Fireteam leader will instruct you on your basic fundamentals, how to infil, find Supply Boxes, visiting the Gulag, and other in-game mechanics as you orientate yourself in the game. Be sure to listen to his quips – or turn subtitles on in the Options menu – so that you can further learn how to play Warzone.
No matter the distance, a marksman rifle can take down an unarmored enemy with a single headshot. These high skill weapons are unforgiving, but with a bit of practice, such as in Multiplayer, marksman rifles can be the deadliest weapons in Warzone.
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.
The Atlas Superstore map in Modern Warfare Multiplayer does not have the same layout as the Atlas Superstore in Warzone. Don’t get confused on specifics, but your general knowledge of what type of fights work within the Superstore can still help you out.
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.
In a game where you find it’s your Operator against the world, intel becomes the most powerful weapon for survival. Along with paying attention to the Tac Map and Compass, be especially thorough about finding, and equipping, reconnaissance tools such as the Recon Drone, Heartbeat Monitor, and UAV.
