The Mini Map and Compass are two of the biggest pieces of reconnaissance technology in the game – and they come standard on your HUD. Use them to call out enemies – e.g. “two snipers at 90 degrees/East/90” – or plan your next move. Also, look on the bottom of the Compass to see the name of the location you are currently in, which can also help with navigation and call outs in combination with our map.
In general, the area south of Quarry before hitting Central Verdansk has only a few villages and points of interest that are far between each other. Be prepared to either travel by vehicle through here or prepare for long-range shootouts and using natural cover for survival.
An underrated portion of the Airport is the Runway Underpass; its subterranean nature can allow you to travel out of sight, and if a squad is trailing you, those multiple exits could leave them guessing.
Whether it’s travelling through Downtown Tavorsk or a residential block, it’s never a bad idea to check corners for hostile forces or their traps, such as Proximity Mines. Usually, equipment pieces like Snapshot Grenades can weed out enemies or equipment in hiding.
The Strela-P may not have the best explosive yield, nor a lock-on feature, but its armor-piercing round can rip straight through any vehicle. While it will take some skill to use, learning how effective it can truly be can unlock a whole new deadly addition to your Warzone weapon watch list.
Contrary to most buildings, the Decon (short for Decontamination) Zone is less skewed toward CQB weapons, as the main shower area has plenty of unobstructed space. Weapons that do well at mid-range, such as assault rifles, are better suited inside this complex, especially when fighting those firing down through the skylights.
Because winning a Warzone match is tough, there are still plenty of rewards just by playing. Whether its all the XP earned during the match or mission and challenge progress earned, never feel that your loss in Warzone was in vain.
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.
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.
