It is possible to reach the top of every crane in Port, although it requires some parachuting. If you do, you’ll be rewarded with one incredible 360-degree sightline that goes from across the Karst River all the way to the Gulag.
Multiple parked trains within the Train Station could contain plenty of loot, and otherwise serve as great cover pieces. While keeping mind of your exposure to the outside through the open windows and doors, be prepared for close-quarters fights with fellow train surfers within the narrow train cars.
Your parachute is your best friend when taking the high ground in Downtown. Remember that you can pull the chute if you are taking a potentially fatal plunge, and parachuting through the city could be one of the fastest modes of transportation.
The Barakett Promenade area has nearly every chain store within Verdansk – from the Public House and a Bank to Gas Stations and Electronic Stores – as well as a Fire House. If your squad wants to loot a reliable area for specific loot types, mark the Promenade down on your Tac Map.
The Javdinsk Spomenik Memorial is at high elevation. Whether you take to the cliffside or the memorial itself, this place may be a good rest stop and scouting point before heading off into the Military Base or Riverside.
This area may be one of the most unique within Verdansk, but don’t feel overwhelmed: there are plenty of familiar buildings, such as police stations, fire stations, pharmacies, and a gun store, that can help ease you into fights in the big city.
Travelling along the frozen Gora River? You may want to take cover within the Frozen Islands; they are pretty much your only source of cover when traversing down the river, which is on low ground compared to the surrounding areas.
WHP tents are usually stocked with loot, so a whole camp in rural Verdansk can be an oasis amid the snowy mountainous forest. Come here for the items and stay for the potential close quarters combat between the tents.
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.
With multiple staircases and ladders, the Train Station has one of the largest and most accessible roof areas in Verdansk. Use it to either snipe enemies within the train yard, or those wandering about the Barakett Promenade.
