A city located in the west part of the map. One of the largest ones, and thus a popular starting location for many players who wish to get their hands on best weapons (especially sniper rifles) right away. Furthermore, there are some vehicles scattered across fields surrounding the city. Zharki city is located not far from Georgopol – there, you can come across basic equipment. It may actually be a good idea to wait till the early massacre in Georgopol is over and visit that city thanks to many vehicles located in that area.
A city where the school building is the main destination – there you will find many interesting weapons (especially sniper rifles), and the majority of players as well. It’s a good starting location, due to scattered vehicles, and a very popular one as well.
Yasnaya Polyana is right next to Rozhoka – this small town is characterized by large acreage, and due to many available vehicles, it is often considered a good starting location.
Pochinki is a small town located south of Rozhoka and Yasnaya Polyana. Although, it’s often avoided by players, it offers many powerful weapons. It’s a great starting location, especially when you can find some vehicles near the buildings.
This isolated location is far away from all other settlements – it’s in the north-west part of the area and can be a very good destination for everyone who wants to survive the first stage of fights. Unfortunately, due to lack of vehicles, it may take some time before you leave the wilds. The town offers only basic equipment, such as pistols.
This place is located in a secluded area by the coast, and it’s definitely worth your time – here, you will come across many items and weapons. Furthermore, it’s a location where vehicles respawn. The main drawback is the fact that this town is far away from all the other cities. However, using one of the vehicles to get to one of them faster is much easier. One should keep in mind that many pieces of upgraded equipment can be found around this location.
In contrast to Primorsk, Lipovka is located on the other side of the map but both towns have similar features – they are rather small, not that popular among players, and full of valuable weapons and equipment. It’s a fine place to use and raid other, larger cities that are overcrowded at the early stage of the game.
Mylta, Mylta Power
Mylta does not have much to offer. However, you can find vehicles around this town, and thus investigating the nearby power plant may be a good idea. Players who prefer high quality equipment will love this place – you can come across best sniper rifles, machine guns, helmets and pieces of equipment. Unfortunately, the fact that there are barely any building makes this place a good sniper town (best to hide in the power plant and wait for your prey). It’s extremely difficult to get to this place.
Sosnovka Military Base, Novorepnoye
Located on an island, and offering various military buildings. Explore this place and you will find out that many valuable guns and items can be found here. Unfortunately, you will not come across any vehicles. If you need some, head towards Novorepnoye, located by the coast – you will need a car to get back to the proper part of the map quickly. Apart from the military equipment, being able to use one of the vehicles is enough to investigate this location (that is, if you begin your gameplay here).
It’s best to avoid both these locations – there is barely anything here, you won’t come across any useful weapons or vehicles. Furthermore, these are large, empty areas, which makes it just too easy to get assassinated by a sharpshooter. Good luck if you decide to start your gameplay here.
