The massive runway could be an extremely deadly area; not taking cover behind the dolosse and whatever else is scattered on it might leave you open to enemies in the Terminal or Control Tower. In other words, it’s best to clear the runway.
Verdansk Hospital’s Northwest Tower has the best high ground spot in the Southwest, allowing you to see over to Downtown, the Promenade, and points west. While up here, use the perimeter wall and hospital letters for cover, lest you end up in the ER.
Travelling along the frozen Gora River? You may want to take cover within the Frozen Islands; they are pretty much your only source of cover when traversing down the river, which is on low ground compared to the surrounding areas.
Between Verdansk’s Train Station and Hospital is a wooded hillside with prime views of both locales. If your squad is looking for an unconventional way to get between these two major zones, or wants to do some scouting, head to these hills.
The Barakett Market has numerous stalls to explore or use as cover while exploring the Barakett Promenade. With how expansive and complex this outdoor market is, it’s not a bad idea to set up some equipment traps or ambushes in between the stalls.
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.
The Swimming Pool could have some loot lying at the bottom, but it’s not without risk. If you come here as a group, it may be wise to have one player take the dive, and the others on lookout from the pool deck.
Logically, one would think to drive over the rivers, but given that they are both barren, it is possible to take a ground vehicle down the Gora and Karst River. In fact, navigating along the rivers can be a faster, and possibly sneakier, way to drive up and down Verdansk.
If you parachute from the Atlas Superstore – especially from the pitched roof – you can land on top of the roof sections in the Parking Lot. Here, you could get some unique high ground against enemies within the lot or that are checking out of the Superstore.
