Downtown boasts some of the tallest buildings in the game, which translates to the best 360-degre vistas. Even if you are in an area that’s around Downtown, always watch for sniper scope glints coming from any one of these tall towers.
If you want to potentially get the jump on players at the Summit or other points northwest, skip them and land towards Riverside. With it being at a less extreme location on the map and having plenty of buildings for scavenging opportunities, your squad could set some ambushes for enemies sprinting towards a safe zone.
Before the Barakett Market set up shop, Central Square Park offered lush open green spaces. This is great for taking a stroll, but not so much for taking cover; stick to the walls and head for landmarks within the park, such as the monument, to hide from enemies lurking in nearby buildings.
The Gondolas over the gorge from the Northeast, East, West, and South move on fixed schedules, and can be great ways to travel across the area. However, because it moves at a fixed speed, their movement is easy to predict; should you want to snipe someone off them, remember to “lead your shot.”
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!
One of the secluded locales of Bloc 18 is the Camping Overlook, which has fantastic views of the Stadium and Karst River Bridge. Should your squad be roaming around the Northeast, consider stopping here and taking overwatch before advancing forward.
Snipers will find the vista from the Beech Tree Hill area an underrated part of the Torsk Bloc zone. Come here after you scavenge the Bloc for a sniper rifle or other long-range weapon, and you may get some intel on potential enemies at the Hospital, Train Station, Airplane Factory, or other areas nearby.
