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.
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.
The Swimming Pool could have some items 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.
The Javdinsk Missile Silo is at a high elevation point. Whether you take to the cliffside or dare to dart across the hatch itself, this place may be a good rest stop and scouting point before heading off into the Military Base or Riverside.
The two Comms Towers are the highest points within the Military Base area. Although they come with a bit of risk, snipers who want to scout ahead for their squad should put both of these points of interest on their radar.
The Superstore’s Ceiling has plenty of skylights to look through. Should you come up here for the views to other points of interest, be sure to check down below for potential hostiles moving through the long-abandoned aisles.
Your parachute is your best friend when taking the high ground in Downtown. Remember that you can pull the chute if you are taking a potentially fatal plunge, and parachuting through the city could be one of the fastest modes of transportation.
Forget Downtown – Bloc 6 is closest major area to the absolute center of Verdansk. Therefore, circle collapses have a high probability of including this suburb in the first safe zone, so it’s best to learn this area just as much as Superstore and other popular drops!
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.
