The most obvious of the bunkers around Verdansk is the complex north of Bloc 18, which is nary a secret even to novice travelers. Still, some call this a “secret spot,” not because the bunkers are [[REDACTED]], but because this area tends to have a Buy Station, plenty of items, and sometimes even a Contract here for a great start to a Battle Royale.
The skyscrapers may command your attention, but there is plenty of items 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.
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.
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.
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.
One could easily assume these homes in Bloc 6 went for a pretty penny back in the day; this is a popular spot to rotate through not just from Stadium and Downtown, but also from across the Gora River from the Airplane Factory and Torsk Bloc. Watch the snipers on the taller buildings and prepare for traffic from the nearby major points of interest.
The Swimming Pool could have some items 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.
Bloc 17 contains three potential Buy Stations spawns, including one at the Police Station that also has a fixed Ammo Cache, in addition to one nearby in Bloc 16. Consider this sleepy suburb a hot spot should multiple Buy Stations pop up here but doesn’t hesitate to rotate through here should you have the Cash.
