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.
One of the tutorials for Warzone takes place at Karst River Quarry, making it one of the easiest zones to study in the game. If you’re just starting out in Warzone and mastered those tutorials, there is no shame in landing in this familiar territory.
Tonight at 10: An Unexpected Vantage Point Over Verdansk Central
The TV Station area is on natural high ground. Although it isn’t as mountainous as Verdansk North, this section of Central Verdansk, it can still provide an elevated vantage point, especially if you sit atop the TV Station or the Comms Tower.
The Skybridge windows can be shot through and broken, allowing you to do some scouting around the outside of the Hospital. However, because of these windows, you may also be more exposed than you think; be cautious of counter-snipers while up on the Skybridge
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.
All Police Stations and Guns and Ammo Stores in Verdansk still have active ammo cache. Interacting with one will refill the ammunition type of the weapons you currently have on you, although this can only be done once per ammo cache.
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.
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.
