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!
This area may be one of the most unique within Verdansk, but don’t feel overwhelmed: there are plenty of familiar buildings, such as police stations, fire stations, pharmacies, and a video store, that can help ease you into fights in the big city.
The Gondolas over the gorge from the Northeast, East, West, and South move on fixed schedules, and can be great ways to travel across the area. However, because it moves at a fixed speed, their movement is easy to predict; should you want to snipe someone off them, remember to “lead your shot.”
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 skyscrapers may command your attention, but there is plenty of items to be found in the smaller apartments and shops in Downtown. Don’t be afraid to stay at the ground level; you may just find what you need to complete your loadout.
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.
The Old Abandoned Mine can be a great spot to set-up an ambush on those rotating from the Verdansk Airport, or going through – or above – the Gora Tunnel, especially if you climb up the Loading Tower. While you are here, be sure check the mine for items left behind by the miners…
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.
Due to its proximity to the new Airplane Factory, an extension of the Maintenance area, the East side of Superstore is prone to snipers from these buildings. Keep your guard up when travelling between these areas, in addition to looking over to the Airport itself, the Swimming Pool, nearby Video Store, and Torsk Bloc, all of which are good counter-sniping positions.
