A large flood plain of commercial structures, residential high-rise tenement blocks, and two graveyards (one filled with the long-dead, the other with plane parts). The main airport is also here, and ablaze. Welcome to West Sector.  

The western edge of Verdansk is comprised of a mainly flat flood-plain south of the Gora River. It is dominated by the large International Airport, now partially in ruins and ripe to become a conflagration zone. East is the sprawling Airport Maintenance yard, and south is a commercial district comprised of a large Storage Town, and the one-stop shop known as the Atlas Superstore. Further south still are the initial residential areas of West Verdansk; the Torsk Bloc of tenement housing, and structures surrounding the main Graveyard. Try not to join the long deceased. Over on the more rural western edge of the map are warehouses, a small wind farm, and another cemetery; this one filled with the skeletons of rusting airlines, known to locals as Zhokov Boneyard.

Pro Tips

Seek the Hide

Tip #171

Seek the Hide

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

The watchtower in the woods north of Quarry has an incredible view of its northeastern section. If the collapse isn’t an issue and you like to snipe, consider finding it after you get a loadout that’s appropriate for extreme long-range combat.

It’s Not Just Parking Lot Cover

It’s Not Just Parking Lot Cover

SECTOR 2: VERDANSK WEST ZONE 2E: ATLAS SUPERSTORE

If you parachute from the Atlas Superstore – especially from the pitched roof – you can land on top of the roof sections in the Parking Lot. Here, you could get some unique high ground against enemies within the lot or that are checking out of the Superstore.

Warehouse Network

Tip #243

Warehouse Network

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

The trio of Lumber Yard Warehouses is filled with loot but can be tricky to navigate. If you get lost, remember where the main open bridge is – towards the east – and make your way over there.

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.

A Complete Neighborhood

Tip #209

A Complete Neighborhood

SECTOR 3: VERDANSK SOUTHWEST ZONE 3C: BARAKETT PROMENADE WEST

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.

Lose them in the Underpass

Tip #180

Lose them in the Underpass

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

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.

Straight to the Grave

Tip #192

Straight to the Grave

SECTOR 2: VERDANSK WEST ZONE 2F: VERDANSK GRAVEYARD

Caught in the Graveyard? Either use the hills, trees, and gravestones for cover, or head to the wooden shack for loot. Otherwise, the next plot within this yard may have your name on it.

Vacant… And Vacant

Tip #252

Vacant… And Vacant

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

There is another empty office just outside of what we all know as Vacant. This building provides excellent sightlines and could be a great counter-sniping position against a team that has taken control of the Vacant building area.

Clean Up on Aisle 2

Tip #189

Clean Up on Aisle 2

SECTOR 2: VERDANSK WEST ZONE 2E: ATLAS SUPERSTORE

The Superstore has multiple open shelves, both at ground level and above, which can make for some unique engagement opportunities. If you sense that an enemy is within the store, it doesn’t hurt to check every aisle, or use a tool that can give recon such as a UAV or Heartbeat Sensor.

Cannonball!

Tip #188

Cannonball!

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.
