Snipers will find the vista from the Beech Tree Hill area an underrated part of the Torsk Bloc zone. Come here after you scavenge the Bloc for a sniper rifle or other long-range weapon, and you may get some intel on potential enemies at the Hospital, Train Station, Airplane Factory, or other areas nearby.
The Train Station has numerous stairwells, such as from the West and East Platform buildings, in addition to Exterior Ascenders which allow for roof access. Know that flanks can come from all sides and consider setting up equipment traps here to cover your six.
The most obvious of the bunkers around Verdansk is the complex north of Bloc 18, which is nary a secret even to novice travelers. Still, some call this a “secret spot,” not because the bunkers are [[REDACTED]], but because this area tends to have a Buy Station, plenty of items, and sometimes even a Contract here for a great start to a Battle Royale.
The Superstore has multiple open shelves, both at ground level and above, which can make for some unique engagement opportunities. If you sense that an enemy is within the store, it doesn’t hurt to check every aisle, or use a tool that can give recon such as a UAV or Heartbeat Sensor.
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 items.
Before the Barakett Market set up shop, Central Square Park offered lush open green spaces. This is great for taking a stroll, but not so much for taking cover; stick to the walls and head for landmarks within the park, such as the monument, to hide from enemies lurking in nearby buildings.
Although there are no buildings around it, the Lozoff Pond should be on your stop list when travelling through North Verdansk if a Buy Station spawns in. However, be careful of those shooting down from the nearby cliffs or from the bustling New Lozoff Village.
Between Tavorsk Park and Downtown is Fire Station 12, a great spot to rotate to and from given views over these locations plus the Hospital, along with having a potential Buy Station spawn. Watch the tower for potential snipers, especially if the Cargo Truck that usually is parked here has gone missing.
Thirty-five self-storage garages are in Storage Town. Almost all of them have at least one garage door open… With their wares available to the first team who can collect them. Leave no storage locker unchecked in Storage Town, lest you miss out on some Legendary Items.
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.
