Verdansk is a map we’ve all become incredibly familiar with since Warzone was released in March 2020, though brand-new changes have arrived in recent seasonal updates. What are the best tactics to move around the map? Where should you start your run? We’ve got you covered with a list of the best landing spots for Warzone Season 6.  

Warzone’s Season 6 update has arrived and with it comes a few key changes to Verdansk. While plenty will be familiar for veteran players, some groundbreaking adjustments will have you changing up your playstyle in certain areas.

If you’re trying to drop in with old strategies, they might not serve you well anymore.

Whether you’re a solo player or running with a squad, if you’re looking for high-kill wins or just want to actually get the win, it’s well worth looking at our updated list covering the best drop spots for every scenario.

Best solo landing spot: Summit

Summit is a newer Warzone location that can serve you well for just about any playstyle.

If you’re dropping in as a lone wolf, it’s always best to keep your options open. You never want to land in a hot spot and have your run come to an abrupt end due to the sheer number of enemies nearby. Therefore, we recommend Summit as the top pick for solo players in Warzone Season 6.

This popular Black Ops location is fitted close to where the Dam area used to be in year one. While it features a number of large buildings, it also comes with multiple getaway options. Once you’ve dropped in and secured some early game loot, you’ve got trucks and helicopters at the ready to make a quick exit.

Overall, whether you’re playing for high-kill games, or just looking to play slow and edge out a win, you can’t go wrong with a Summit start.

Best duo landing spot: Airplane Factory

The newer Airplane Factory POI has quickly become a heated drop spot in Warzone.

With the Season 3 update came some all-new POIs. At the time, these were immediately hot drops and some have remained that way through to Season 6. One of those popular locations is Airplane Factory.

Located right in the center of Verdansk ’84, it’s a great spot to drop into no matter what the circle looks like. It gives you endless possibilities in terms of rotations, and it provides a huge amount of early-game loot.

Dropping in as a duo is your best bet for the Airplane Factory. While you can drop in different buildings and try to loot separate areas, it’s always advisable to stick close in the early game.

Best Trios & Quads landing spot: Superstore

Superstore has long been one of the better drop spots and Season 6 is no different.

If you’ve been playing Warzone for a while now, you’ll feel right at home with Verdansk 84’s version of Superstore. Not a whole lot has changed here, meaning it’s still one of the sweatiest early game locations in Warzone — especially now that Specialist was removed from the Downtown tower.

If you’re dropping here, expect multiple fights within the first few minutes. Your goal as a team is to try and stay alive at all costs. Whoever wins the Superstore showdown is always left in a great position to close out the eventual win. 

From powerful loot to tons of cash, it’s one of the best places on the map to really kit your team out. Just be cautious of other squads looking to do the same.

Best landing spot for high-kill games: Hospital

Hospital is great if you want solid mobility — just make sure to grab that heli!

If you’ve watched any Warzone tournaments, you’ve probably seen how spicy Hospital has become.

To really get high-kill games from here, you need to grab the helicopter and get to chopping. After that, you should have enough money in your bag and blood on your hands to get moving and secure a loadout. Add on helicopter mobility and you have a recipe for a game that’s heavy on kills.

Hottest drop spot in Warzone Season 6: Stadium

Stadium has been ripped open in Season 6.

With Stadium completely torn apart in Season 6, new squads are constantly dropping in to see the damage. As with every new change to Verdansk, players always have to see it for themselves to familiarize with the new terrain.

While Stadium is still in the same spot, it acts completely different in Season 6. There’s more verticality than before, new flanking routs, and more loot scattered throughout.

If you’re looking for a quick start, dropping near Stadium is your way to go this season in Warzone.

Best landing spot for easier wins: Grid Array

Climbing to the top of Grid Array will give you a full look at Verdansk ’84.

A POI that arrived in Season 3, Grid Array is perfect for mapping out your next victory. This location marks one of the tallest points in Verdansk ’84, giving you a full look at your surroundings.

Landing here and looting up will then give you the freedom to play patiently. Sitting up top will give you time to think and consider your next move. Where will you rotate? How’s the circle looking? Are there any squads nearby? You’ll have a better understanding of everything from up high at the Grid Array location.


Overall, a lot of this comes down to personal preference. At the end of the day, you’ll familiarize yourself with certain landing spots and learn how best to navigate them. That said, if you’re looking to shake things up, consider some of the suggestions above.
