From the frozen lakes and snow-covered hills surrounding Gora Dam to the massive excavation scars of the Karst River Quarry, North Sector is both remote and inhospitable. Learn how to survive the environment here.   

Expect a frosty reception as you explore the very northern part of Verdansk, comprising of the large Gora Dam structure to the northwest, surrounded by steep mountainous terrain and dotted homesteads, along with cabins and other surprises in the forests. In the central part of this tundra is the Arklov Peak Military Base, a large forward operating center nestled on a plateau close to the mountain range that shares its name. Further east are the belching smokestacks and vast warehouse complex of Karst River Quarry. There are the small villages of Riverside, and Blocs 14, 15, 16, 17, 23, and Lozoff Pass along the southern perimeter, as well as a WHP (World Humanitarian Project) Camp with a few gruesome surprises.

Pro Tips

Crane Game

Tip #249

Crane Game

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

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.

Boneyard: Far From Bone Dry

Tip #196

Boneyard: Far From Bone Dry

SECTOR 2: VERDANSK WEST ZONE 2H: ZHOKOV BONEYARD

From the hangers to the numerous broken planes, the Boneyard has no shortage of loot despite being a dumping ground for scrap metal. Follow your Tac Map to see where Contract drops are and be meticulous when exploring the area to find some serious loot.

The Roads (Sometimes) Less Travelled

Tip #169

The Roads (Sometimes) Less Travelled

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

By way of sheer convenience, the northern border of Verdansk between the Military Base and Quarry may be less travelled than the highway system. If you’re trying to travel between these two places, consider taking the cliff roads to potentially maintain a lower profile.

Mileage May Vary

Tip #147

Mileage May Vary

Tac Map: Atlas

Although a lot of potential item and equipment spawn points are shown on the guide map, not all are guaranteed. Always look to your in-game Tac Map for the locations of Vehicles, Contracts, and other points of interest for your specific game session.

Au Naturale

Tip #175

Au Naturale

SECTOR 1: VERDANSK NORTH ZONE 1E: CRASH SITE, LOZOFF PASS, BLOC 14, BLOC 15, WHP CAMP

In general, the area south of Quarry before hitting Central Verdansk has only a few villages and points of interest that are far between each other. Be prepared to either travel by vehicle through here or prepare for long-range shootouts and using natural cover for survival.

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.

End of the Line

Tip #208

End of the Line

SECTOR 3: VERDANSK SOUTHWEST ZONE 3B: VERDANSK TRAIN STATION

The Verdansk Train Station also has another transit hub – a Bus Terminal – which may not be as popular as the sprawling station. With some loot opportunities here and in the Military Checkpoint, don’t hesitate to check this area before – or after – exploring the main Train Station.

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.

Towering Over the Junkyard

Tip #186

Towering Over the Junkyard

SECTOR 2: VERDANSK WEST ZONE 2C: JUNKYARD

The various structures in the Junkyard don’t have verticality, save for the Comms Tower. It can give you incredible sights over most of Verdank’s West side but will leave you with little cover... Be sure to coordinate with your teammates if you decide to take the climb up here.

Wood Pallet Town

Tip #242

Wood Pallet Town

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

A collection of wooden pallets just outside the main warehouses can be an excellent place to sneak about and force close-quarters combat… Just don’t get stuck in here with an ATV, or you may have to abandon it.
