Once a hub of activity for both commuters and homeowners, Southwest Sector features many notable landmarks, as well as out-of-the-way places. Learn the lay of the land all the way to the southern coast.  

Segmented along the northern perimeter by the P411 Highway, this Sector stretches southwards from the dilapidated splendor of the Verdansk Train Station to the Kastovian coastal road. Southwest Verdansk also features high-density housing, and the largest number of market stalls, shops, and other closed-down kiosks seen across the map. There are a number of immense locations, like the Hospital, Ferris Wheel, and the long Barakett Market Promenade that stretches almost completely from west to east. Further south near the coast are newer housing tracts, another monolithic war memorial, and a few isolated cottages as you reach the edge of the map.

Pro Tips

Check Out the Checkpoints

Tip #248

Check Out the Checkpoints

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

Getting up to the physical checkpoints at both ends of the Port can offer phenomenal 360-degree views of the surrounding area. Just be mindful that there is absolutely no cover up here.

Living in an SUV Down by the River

Tip #219

Living in an SUV Down by the River

SECTOR 4: VERDANSK CENTRAL AND SOUTH ZONE 4A: GRAZNA BRIDGE, BCH4 TV STATION

Logically, one would think to drive over the rivers, but given that they are both barren, it is possible to take a ground vehicle down the Gora and Karst River. In fact, navigating along the rivers can be a faster, and possibly sneakier, way to drive up and down Verdansk.

Put the Money in the Bag

Tip #153

Put the Money in the Bag

Tac Map: Atlas

National Acropolis Bank branches - and the main branch in Downtown - have a higher chance of spawning Cash drops. If you want Cash, then you may have to consider a quick heist…

Gate Check

Tip #225

Gate Check

SECTOR 4: VERDANSK CENTRAL AND SOUTH ZONE 4C: VERDANSK STADIUM

While the interior of the Stadium is currently inaccessible, the various gates that would lead into it have an underrated number of loot opportunities. Just be sure to use the security features and stadium architecture for cover, since Downtown Tavorsk skyscrapers have solid views of the Stadium’s southeast-facing side.

Pulling Them Off the Air

Tip #177

Pulling Them Off the Air

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

The Switchbacks and Trails/Karst Transformer locations both have incredible sightlines over to the TV Station and Stadium, two main stops before hitting downtown. Given their obscurity, it may not be a bad idea to scout here prior to your assault on either locale.

Frozen Assets

Tip #157

Frozen Assets

SECTOR 1: VERDANSK NORTH ZONE 1A: GORA DAM, GORA TUNNEL, BLOC 17, BLOC 16

If you are playing Plunder and need a place to deposit some Cash that’s out of the way, there is a Cash Deposit Site right near the frozen river. While you may have to deal with snipers from the Dam, it’s pretty remote compared to one in more familiar locales or in a suburb.

Trans-Verdanskian Highway

Tip #150

Trans-Verdanskian Highway

Tac Map: Atlas

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.

Cell Service

Tip #254

Cell Service

SECTOR 5: VERDANSK EAST ZONE 5E: ZORDAYA PRISON COMPLEX

Inside the Zordaya Prison Complex is an intricate network of cells. There is an abundance of Supply Boxes and other goodies inside, but it can be complicated to get in – and out – of the area. Make sure those pings and comms are on point before your squad ventures into here.

A Good Perspective from the Promontory

Tip #241

A Good Perspective from the Promontory

SECTOR 5: VERDANSK EAST ZONE 5B: GORENGARD LUMBER YARD

About to head into the Lumber Yard? It may be wise to send one of your squadmates up onto the Rock Promontory, which has fantastic views over the north part of Lumber Yard.

An Aside on Riverside

Tip #162

An Aside on Riverside

SECTOR 1: VERDANSK NORTH ZONE 1B: BLOC 23, JARVDINSK SPOMENIK, RIVERSIDE

If you want to potentially get the jump on players at the Dam or other points northwest, skip them and land towards Riverside. With it being at a less extreme location on the map and having plenty of buildings for loot opportunities, your squad could set some ambushes for enemies sprinting towards a safe zone.
