Scrapyard will be familiar ground for Call of Duty veterans, which may make it a hotly contested area if it is part of the safe area. Prepare for close quarters combat within the fuselages, warehouses, and office… And don’t forget to check the catwalk of Scrapyard Warehouse 3, one that’s been a notorious sniper perch for decades.
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.
Although a lot of potential item and equipment spawn points are shown on the guide map, not all are guaranteed. Always look to your in-game Tac Map for the locations of Vehicles, Contracts, and other points of interest for your specific game session.
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.
All Fire Stations have solid loot potential, including in their tall towers. These towers are often fantastic sniping perches with solid cover, so if you're looking to take the high ground, they are reliable sources for it.
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.
Multiple Downtown buildings, such as the Verdansk Museum of Contemporary Art and XK Architects Tower, have extremely complex interiors. Be sure to check every dead end and office to maximize your loot earning potential, or to possibly find enemy stragglers in hiding.
Because the Control Tower, Terminal, and Atlas Superstore could be hotly contested zones, it may be wise to forgo them when dropping in – if you see plenty of parachutes opening over them, that is – and aiming for something in the Airport Maintenance section, which has plenty of points of interest to explore.
