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.
The skyscrapers may command your attention, but there is plenty of loot to be found in the smaller apartments and shops in Downtown. Don’t be afraid to stay at the ground level; you may just find what you need to complete your loadout.
One of the tutorials for Warzone takes place at Karst River Quarry, making it one of the easiest zones to study in the game. If you’re just starting out in Warzone and mastered those tutorials, there is no shame in landing in this familiar territory.
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.
The Gora and Karst Rivers are mostly a transitionary area, save for their Flood Gates, which can be a great place to take cover. Just be careful about climbing the ladders out of here; if you are planning on doing so, it may be wise to pack a pistol along for self-defense.
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.
Many parts of Verdansk North, especially the School and Riverside, are also featured in Co-Op Special Operations within Operations Kuvalda, Harbinger, and Brimstone. If you have the full Modern Warfare experience, you can hop into those operations and explore the area further before dropping into it for Warzone.
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.
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.
