There is no easy way to win Warzone, But you can improve your odds to a great extent by choosing an ideal place to get off the bat. WordDac’s map is huge, so there’s not necessarily a right or wrong place to land – but depending on your skill level and where the gas is, you’ll want to create a plan in your back pocket that suits your needs. In this guide, we will go to some great landing tips as well as some great places to land in general.
Basic tips for choosing spots
The first thing you want to do before choosing your landing location is to properly evaluate the route of the aircraft in the beginning. You can actually watch it before the match starts while staying in the pre-game lobby. Take time to draw your map at this point to see the trajectory of the plane so that you know where you are going. You will not be able to see the gas yet, but you will check the route of the plane as soon as possible. There are a few things to keep in mind before you are ready to take a spot.
Ideally, you should have a good understanding of your own skill level. This will help when choosing a spot. For example, we would not recommend beginning to land in high-traffic areas. Likewise, expert players will probably get bored if they get too far from the action. At this point, look at the map around Verdansk, the direction of the aircraft, the gas and all contracts.
Some players – regardless of gas – will land in one place in each game. If it works for you, there is more power for you, but we highly recommend choosing spots based on gas and the route of the aircraft. The most effective strategy is to land close to a contract, so you can start it and hopefully earn some cash, loot, and a sneak peek in the event of gas (you get this to complete a Recon contract) .
For beginners, it is recommended to land by Recon (marked by a flag sign) or Scavenger (denoted by a magnifying glass) contracts. They do not require you to engage in any combat and will reward you with useful gifts (usually). Recon contracts are a bit risky because they require you to occupy a point that causes a flare up in the sky, revealing your location to enemies. However, from our experience, it usually does not make much difference in the early stages of the game. For scavenger contracts, these are the safest and only require you to open three chests, all within close range of each other.
Other contracts like Most Wanted and Bounties are very difficult, as they will result in firefights with other players. If you feel confident in your skills, go ahead and grab one of these contracts – but otherwise, we recommend staying away. It is worth noting that the earlier you start a Most Wanted or Bounty contract, this is easier because the potential players you have will not (usually) have powerful end game gear.
Be prepared to change your way on the fly based on other players. For example, if you have a place on your mind, but see tons of players going to the same place, then if you want to be safe, it is best to change your path to a different place. If possible, try to land on a different contract with which you feel confident, such as Recon or Mehtar.
The final tip is to choose spots based on the size and skills of your team. If you’ve got a team of four, it’s easy to survive in a high-traffic spot, especially if you’re on the same page with determining a route. If you’re playing solo, it’s a little different because you’ll have no one to take you when you go down, so keep all of you in mind.
Using gas and aircraft to your advantage
We will help you refer to the image above so that you can land in a great place. There is a lot to take when looking at the map, but the main thing is to look at the circle (which represents the path of the deadly gas) and the line that represents the path of the plane. As you can see, the plane’s path is going southeast, towards downtown. Because of this, you will find many players who will descend along the line that shows the path of the plane. Keeping this in mind, if you want to stay away from action, it might be a good idea to get out of the way. In this case, the airport is one of the busiest areas, followed by the Superstore and Storage Town – simply because of their proximity to the beginning of the aircraft route.
You’ll notice on the map, we’ve highlighted a Recon contract in the very bottom part in the Promenade West area. This is a great location as it is still far away from the action, while still being close to the edge of the circle. Again, if your skill allows it, you can aim for busy areas like Superstore, but for new or inexperienced players, we recommend against that. Based on the image above, downtown is not a bad location for land because it is easy to hide between buildings and there are a lot of contracts to choose from.
In short, we recommend landing by a contract at the edge of the circle away from the path of the aircraft to avoid war and to ensure that you are catching the goodies along the way. If you are a more skilled player, you can rotate that formula a bit and get closer to the center of the circle, but you want to be careful with other players. All this being said, let’s go through some great places for all skill levels.
If gas is allowed, the landing in the downtown area is excellent due to dense buildings, contracts, and amenity points. Even if a dozen players are all heads of this location, there is enough room for everyone to move around – making it easy to lose enemies who will be tracking you. Ideally, we would recommend doing some contracts, collect as much money as you can, and locate a tall building that looks at the rest of the map. That way, you can jump quickly if things get hairy. Note that this is a highly populated area, but thanks to the many places you can visit, you will find enough action to keep things fun while it is still relatively safe.
One strategy you want to use is to hide in high office buildings. Make sure you cover every entrance – especially elevators with rappel ropes. In fact, if you could place a mine or claymore right in front of these rappel points, you would have a much easier time evading enemies. When the gas passes, run to the roof and jump to safety.
The port is usually a safe place depending on the direction of the aircraft. If you see a group of players nearby, you should consider changing your course. Otherwise, landing here will serve you well. Just make sure you grab a contract or two and try to raid the main office building with multiple floors. This is like the main place where you will likely run into enemies, so be comfortable with it.
The good thing is that the port is usually far from danger, so you can go up, grab some gear, and move inward. As a word of caution, we recommend you avoid going over the top of the crane (unless you plan on grabbing and dropping an object quickly), as they are highly visible and usually the first The thing happens when people look at this area. outside. When you end up at the port, you’ve got plenty of main hubs to choose from, like a nearby town or farmland.
This is yet another place that is usually less busy. Promenade West has lots of small houses and multistory apartment buildings full of loot and contracts. It is like a tinier version of downtown in downtown, with lots of buildings to explore, but lots of buildings to explore. When you’ve got all the loot you need, you can make your way up to the Boneyard, or eastward towards the park. Promenade vest is generally safe and close to other hubs that are worth visiting.
This may be a controversial entry, but if you know what you’re doing, the superstore can hit the ground. The previous entries are for players looking to avoid contact with the enemy, but the Superstore is the exact opposite. In the match played to grab the image above, we literally led 11 other players (who we can see) to the superstore, so this is definitely not for those who want to be stealthy. . What you will find here, however, is great loot, and a chance to take out other players, which is great for taking any loot they can hold along the way. Also, it is easy to listen to the enemy’s footsteps as it is such a compact area, so if you can find a decent weapon right away, you will be at an advantage.
The strategy we want to use is to get away from other enemies and make our way through low-traffic entrances. This will change depending on the way other enemies and aircraft arrive. Once inside, try to listen for other players and move towards a weapon hit and contract. Keep doing this until you feel confident of running away from this area. There is usually someone on the roof overlooking the surrounding zone, so be careful as you get out and try not to just go out in the open when you exit.
Getting into the stadium is like a superstore, in which it is a high traffic area. But it is high risk / high reward, and, thankfully, you can survive if you know what to do. Since the stadium recently opened with Season 5, it has grown in popularity. On average, we have encountered seven enemies at this location – mostly landing directly through the giant hole in the center. Doing so will likely kill you, so we recommend taking the outside entrance – either through a garage or through a door on the main floor. Again, like the superstore, once you’re inside, there’s plenty of loot and even secret rooms that can be unlocked around the area with keycards (we’ll cover that in more detail. Go).
We suggest avoiding the central part of the stadium altogether. Instead, find the inside section on the main floor, with an underground garage. You will usually only run into one or two enemies in the garage area. Once you have enough gear, you can move to the downtown area, which is excellent for collecting more loot and contracts. Fortunately, it is very close. Other players prefer to stop and wait inside the stadium as this can be a very safe place as most of the enemies are thrown out. We find this method useful, but less fun, so choose a way that suits you and follow along.
Great landing spots are those that have lots of gear and contract and are close to useful hubs that are safe to move around. However, keep in mind, a good landing spot is only good as a player. If you are inexperienced, even getting near a lot of loot will not save you from players who have spent dozens of hours Warzone.
