Because the Control Tower, Terminal, and Atlas Superstore could be hotly contested zones, it may be wise to forgo them when dropping in – if you see plenty of parachutes opening over them, that is – and aiming for something in the Airport Maintenance section, which has plenty of points of interest to explore.
Unsure of where to start looting within the Verdansk Graveyard area? The nearby Pharmacy, Bank, and Police Station be a reliable stop during your campaign for an end game loadout. It’s not a bad idea to land here first, then spread out to the rest of the area.
From the Railyard, you can follow the rail tracks by heading southeast, and travel (ideally by vehicle) throughout the entire map, tracing the railroad, and stopping off at multiple destinations. This rail network can be very helpful when learning the geography of Verdansk.
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.
Whether its atop the Fire Station or the Upper Dam, few vistas compare to what you’ll get atop the Gora Dam. Come here with the longest scope you have and look down below for any enemies worth engaging with.
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.
If you want to potentially get the jump on players at the Dam 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 loot opportunities, your squad could set some ambushes for enemies sprinting towards a safe zone.
The watchtower in the woods north of Quarry 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.
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.
Travelling across the Military Base, especially when hopping from hangar to hangar, might be a daunting task on foot. Given how little cover there is on the roads and runway, using a vehicle around here isn’t a bad idea, and in some cases, you might just find one lying around on the base.
