This area may be one of the most unique within Verdansk, but don’t feel overwhelmed: there are plenty of familiar buildings, such as police stations, fire stations, pharmacies, and a video store, that can help ease you into fights in the big city.
Should a Circle Collapse deem the dense woods of West Verdansk a safe haven, prepare for long-range sniper duels from the map’s edge line. Use the points of interest out here as cover, in addition to the rocks and trees that populate this border.
Between Tavorsk Park and Downtown is Fire Station 12, a great spot to rotate to and from given views over these locations plus the Hospital, along with having a potential Buy Station spawn. Watch the tower for potential snipers, especially if the Cargo Truck that usually is parked here has gone missing.
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.
With a flat area on the roof, the TV Station could have a helicopter ready for you to pilot out of this area. Alternatively, if you start to hear the whirr of those blades, look up towards the roof and you could catch a squad flying away from here.
Although the Ticket Hall has a beautiful ceiling, it’s also a potential hot spot, as action can spill in from the West and Main Platforms. If an engagement happens, use the information booth and the stairwell for cover.
Cargo Processing has a single dead-end that could hold a surprise… And that surprise can be an enemy player. Be sure to double check this location when travelling through Port, preferably with an explosive or Tactical Grenade.
The parking garage is deceptively complicated for an area. From military tents to ground items taking up parking spaces, it’s not a bad idea to explore every part of this lot or decide to land here against the more obvious Airport areas.
Verdank’s eastern border features plenty of rocks and trees, which can be a perfect place for snipers to move around and pick off Operators. When travelling through Krovnik Farmland especially, check for sniper glints coming from the trees, lest you and the whole squad fall in the fields.
