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.
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.
Old Verdansk Stadium is far more open to pitch invaders than the more modern version. Not only should you watch for those wandering around the field and the stands, but also snipers on the scoreboard and construction equipment, in addition to any vehicle that can easily drive onto the field.
The watchtower in the Foothills north of the Salt Mine has an incredible view of its northeastern section. If the collapse isn’t an issue and you like to snipe, consider finding it after you get a loadout that’s appropriate for extreme long-range combat.
The homes within the Novi Grazna Hills cul-de-sac could be a great landing spot, as there are multiple opportunities for items and easy access to the busier Barakett Promenade area. If you are fighting within this area, you could use the smoke from the helicopter to help conceal you from long-range fire.
The individual buildings within Summit offer great CQB opportunities, especially the familiar sights of the main Command and Control Center. However, snipers and long-range weaponry can rule the spaces between buildings… Just watch your step, lest you fall into the gorge below!
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.
The parking garage is deceptively complicated for an area. From military tents to ground items taking up parking spaces, it’s not a bad idea to explore every part of this lot or decide to land here against the more obvious Airport areas.
Although the Verdansk Processing Warehouse, as well as an Apartment and Office, are outside of the actual Verdansk Hospital, they are still a part of the Hospital area. If your squad is dropping in and seeing the Hospital fill up quickly, it’s not a bad idea to call an audible and land in either of these two locations.
