Your parachute is your best friend when taking the high ground in Downtown. Remember that you can pull the chute if you are taking a potentially fatal plunge, and parachuting through the city could be one of the fastest modes of transportation.
Travelling across the Military Base, especially when hopping from hangar to hangar, might be a daunting task on foot. Given how little cover there is on the roads and runway, using a vehicle around here isn’t a bad idea, and in some cases, you might just find one lying around on the base.
Travelling out of Airport Maintenance or crossing the Gora Bridge? Double check the Hobo Carriage; it’s far away from more dense areas and could still have some leftover items inside… or even a Supply Box!
Notice a room with a view? The Apartment Block near the Ferris Wheel is one of many areas around Verdansk that contains a new landing with a window. Use it to snipe out of the building more safely or get a sense of where enemies are before continuing a climb to the top.
Forget Downtown – Bloc 6 is closest major area to the absolute center of Verdansk. Therefore, circle collapses have a high probability of including this suburb in the first safe zone, so it’s best to learn this area just as much as Superstore and other popular drops!
If you are playing Plunder and need a place to bank some Cash that’s out of the way, there is a Cash Deposit Site within the dried-out river. While you may have to deal with snipers from the Summit, it’s pretty remote compared to one in more familiar locales or in a suburb, and nearby rocks and trees can offer some cover.
Multiple parked trains within the Train Station could contain plenty of items, and otherwise serve as great cover pieces. While keeping mind of your exposure to the outside through the open windows and doors, be prepared for close-quarters fights with fellow train surfers within the narrow train cars.
The hangars within the Arklov Peak Military Base – and by extension some Verdansk Airport hangars – are a lot larger than you think. Be prepared for long-range combat indoors, as these hangars were meant to fit planes that could almost hold the whole lobby.
To Scavenge or Not to Scavenge (Probably Scavenge)
The Stadium’s Scoreboard could be a popular power position during a match, as it provides awesome views of action down on the pitch, as well as over to Downtown and Bloc 6. It’s wise to check for snipers up here, and if none are present, then gaze over to the light fixtures and the crane for potential nests.
