Those travelling in the Karst River may be open to attacks on either side but may find a safe haven among the Lower Karst River Works. It can provide some great cover while you rotate to – or from – the nearby Farmland and Stadium.
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.
While they are a gorgeous shade of red, the Crystalizing Pools around the Salt Mine offer little cover. It’s best to find a nearby salt pile or building for cover, lest your blood muddy the shimmering crimson pools.
Barakett Promenade East boasts double-digit points of interest that add up to over 20 buildings with interior spaces. When exploring here, it may be wise to find a secondary weapon that’s built for close-quarters engagements, which are typical when fighting in building interiors.
In general, the area south of the Salt Mine before hitting Central Verdansk has only a few villages and points of interest that are far between each other. Be prepared to either travel by vehicle through here or prepare for long-range shootouts and using natural cover for survival.
A collection of wooden pallets just outside the main warehouses can be an excellent place to sneak about and force close-quarters combat… Just don’t get stuck in here with an ATV, or you may have to abandon it.
Should a Circle Collapse deem the dense woods of West Verdansk a safe haven, prepare for long-range sniper duels from the map’s edge line. Use the points of interest out here as cover, in addition to the rocks and trees that populate this border.
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 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.
