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.
Unsure of where to start looting within the Verdansk Graveyard area? The nearby Pharmacy, Bank, and Police Station be a reliable stop during your campaign for an end game loadout. It’s not a bad idea to land here first, then spread out to the rest of the area.
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.
Although there are no buildings around it, the Crash Site should be on your stop list when travelling through North Verdansk. The downed plane’s fuselage may have some untouched loot that could be what you need to finish your loadout.
The hamlets that make up the far northwest side of Verdansk are far from densely populated areas, making them hidden gems for finding untouched Supply Boxes. Beware, however: given its place on the map, it may not be a viable looting place during other games and only for Plunder.
From the hangers to the numerous broken planes, the Boneyard has no shortage of loot despite being a dumping ground for scrap metal. Follow your Tac Map to see where Contract drops are and be meticulous when exploring the area to find some serious loot.
The parking garage is deceptively complicated for an area. From military tents to ground loot taking up parking spaces, it’s not a bad idea to explore every part of this lot or decide to land here against the more obvious Airport areas.
Barakett Promenade East boasts double-digit points of interest that add up to over 20 buildings with interior spaces. When exploring here, it may be wise to find a secondary weapon that’s built for close-quarters engagements, which are typical when fighting in building interiors.
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.
From the Railyard, you can follow the rail tracks by heading southeast, and travel (ideally by vehicle) throughout the entire map, tracing the railroad, and stopping off at multiple destinations. This rail network can be very helpful when learning the geography of Verdansk.
