Veterans of the Call of Duty franchise will find the TV Station to be familiar ground: the ground floor shares a layout to the Call of Duty 4®: Modern Warfare map Broadcast. Just don’t let those rose-tinted glasses blind you from this hotly contested zone.
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.
The skyscrapers may command your attention, but there is plenty of loot to be found in the smaller apartments and shops in Downtown. Don’t be afraid to stay at the ground level; you may just find what you need to complete your loadout.
Out of all the buildings in West Verdansk, few compare to the complexity of the Verdansk International Airport Terminal. Move through here as a group, and you won’t lose each other or get picked off by team with better synergy.
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.
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.
If you aren’t in a building within the Tavorsk Park, you may be exposed to those that are. When roaming around the park, try finding natural cover, such as rocks, cliffs, and trees, as you escape to a safer area.
Because the Control Tower, Terminal, and Atlas Superstore could be hotly contested zones, it may be wise to forgo them when dropping in – if you see plenty of parachutes opening over them, that is – and aiming for something in the Airport Maintenance section, which has plenty of points of interest to explore.
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.
The homes within the Novi Grazna Hills cul-de-sac could be a great landing spot, as there are multiple opportunities for loot and easy access to the busier Barakett Promenade area. If you are fighting within this area, you could use the smoke from the helicopter to help conceal you from long-range fire.
