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.
An underrated portion of the Airport are Runway Underpasses; their subterranean nature allows you to travel out of sight, and if a squad is trailing you, those multiple exits could leave them guessing.
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.
Downtown Tavorsk District may have plenty of defined roads, but they are often cluttered and are flanked by skyscrapers. If you’re trying to drive – or fly – across the map, it may be wise to go around it, as you may run into less trouble.
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.
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.
The main area of Bloc 18 east of the Karst River has a few familiar locales: A Fire Station, Video Store, and Police Station. If you’re searching for guaranteed ammo and other items that could be a bit out of the way, look no further than here.
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.
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.
Because some apartment buildings within the Barakett Promenade look the same, your squadmates may be confused if you tell them you are “in an apartment.” So, it may be good to ping the exact area you are in or use the compass or surrounding points of interest as guideposts.
