The hamlets that make up the far northwest side of Verdansk are far from densely populated areas, making them hidden gems for finding untouched Supply Boxes. Beware, however: given its place on the map, it may not be a viable looting place during other games and only for Plunder.
Cargo Processing has a single dead-end that could hold a surprise… And that surprise can be an enemy player. Be sure to double check this location when travelling through Port, preferably with an explosive or Tactical Grenade.
Many parts of Verdansk North, especially the School and Riverside, are also featured in Co-Op Special Operations within Operations Kuvalda, Harbinger, and Brimstone. If you have the full Modern Warfare experience, you can hop into those operations and explore the area further before dropping into it for Warzone.
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.
Multiple high ground spots within Krovnik Farmland – including the windmills – are inaccessible without a helicopter and a parachute. If the circle collapse is making this area a safe zone and you have a chopper, it could be a good idea to take up a position on one of these hard-to-get areas.
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.
Given the verticality of Downtown, use it to your advantage by coordinating team strategies around it. Maybe a teammate can take overwatch on a building and make callouts while the others travel on foot, or each team member takes a section of a building when sweeping for loot.
One of the tutorials for Warzone takes place at Karst River Quarry, making it one of the easiest zones to study in the game. If you’re just starting out in Warzone and mastered those tutorials, there is no shame in landing in this familiar territory.
Scrapyard will be familiar ground for Call of Duty veterans, which may make it a hotly contested area if it is part of the safe area. Prepare for close quarters combat within the fuselages, warehouses, and office… And don’t forget to check the catwalk of Scrapyard Warehouse 3, one that’s been a notorious sniper perch for decades.
The Zordaya Prison Complex Yard can hold valuable loot and even vehicles, but the guard towers and wall can house enemy sharpshooters. Be cautious when wandering out onto the yard, lest you be sent to the Gulag.
