The entire eastern region of Verdansk is mainly given over to agricultural and lumber farming, as well as the main sea port. But journey further south through East Sector, and the formidable walls of the Zordaya Prison Complex loom into view.  

Segmented by the main divided highway to the west, the mountains along the eastern perimeter, and partially bisected by the frozen Karst River, the East Sector of Verdansk contains both a variety of topography and settlement types. Begin in the north, close to the Karst River and its eponymous Quarry, and you encounter the relatively rural Bloc 18; a village either side of the frozen waterway. This gives way to woodland and a large-scale Lumber Yard, run by the Gorengard company. Further south is the large-scale arable Krovnik Farmland, with mainly fruit and crops grown, though there are the remains of livestock still rotting in the fields. The rural landscape quickly changes to industrial docks within the once-bustling City of Verdansk Port. Finally, looming over Verdansk from its coastal cliff promontory, is the castle-like Zordaya Prison Complex where you’ll find for your life in the feared Gulag.

SECTOR 2: VERDANSK WEST ZONE 2A: VERDANSK INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT

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.

Down Near the Gora River

Tip #185

Down Near the Gora River

SECTOR 2: VERDANSK WEST ZONE 2B: AIRPORT MAINTENANCE

Travelling out of Airport Maintenance or crossing the Gora Bridge? Double check the Hobo Carriage; it’s far away from more dense areas and could still have some leftover loot inside.

Eviction Notice

Tip #194

Eviction Notice

SECTOR 2: VERDANSK WEST ZONE 2G: TORSK BLOC

The various apartments within the Torsk Bloc have interiors to explore. Whether you are looking for loot or for enemies, be sure to sweep every floor and room, along with the Twin Apartment Complex roof that could be a popular sniping perch.

Storage Auction

Tip #187

Storage Auction

SECTOR 2: VERDANSK WEST ZONE 2D: STORAGE TOWN

Thirty-five self-storage garages are in Storage Town. Almost all of them have at least one garage door open… With their wares available to the first team who can collect them. Leave no storage locker unchecked in Storage Town, lest you miss out on some Legendary Loot.

The Roads (Sometimes) Less Travelled

Tip #169

The Roads (Sometimes) Less Travelled

SECTOR 1: VERDANSK NORTH ZONE 1D: KARST RIVER QUARRY

By way of sheer convenience, the northern border of Verdansk between the Military Base and Quarry may be less travelled than the highway system. If you’re trying to travel between these two places, consider taking the cliff roads to potentially maintain a lower profile.

Don’t Get Lost in the Containers

Don’t Get Lost in the Containers

SECTOR 5: VERDANSK EAST ZONE 5D: CITY OF VERDANSK PORT

Cargo Processing has a single dead-end that could hold a surprise… And that surprise can be an enemy player. Be sure to double check this location when travelling through Port, preferably with an explosive or Tactical Grenade.

Off the Grid

Tip #174

Off the Grid

SECTOR 1: VERDANSK NORTH ZONE 1E: CRASH SITE, LOZOFF PASS, BLOC 14, BLOC 15, WHP CAMP

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.

From Downtown!

Tip #201

From Downtown!

SECTOR 3: VERDANSK SOUTHWEST ZONE 3A: VERDANSK HOSPITAL

The front of the Hospital faces Downtown, where multiple building roofs look directly over to it. When travelling to and from this area, be mindful of potential snipers from the East.

A Road on the Outskirts of Town

Tip #238

A Road on the Outskirts of Town

SECTOR 5: VERDANSK EAST ZONE 5A: BLOC 18, KARST BRIDGE

Given that the northeast border of Verdansk has few structures, the main roads can be dangerous as they are the only points of interest. If you have to travel out here, consider cutting through the natural environment or rolling along the Karst River.

Cannonball!

Tip #188

SECTOR 2: VERDANSK WEST ZONE 2D: STORAGE TOWN

The Swimming Pool could have some loot lying at the bottom, but it’s not without risk. If you come here as a group, it may be wise to have one player take the dive, and the others on lookout from the pool deck.
