You'll need to make yourself north to the Storage Town or east to the graveyard.
Best Landing And Loot Locations
Turbine Shop, Stacks, Purple Plane, Rebel Cache and Midtown (56)
One of the early front-runners for 'best landing spot', this varied POI offers good-to-great loot potential, along with an insane amount of cover.
The Stacks, retrofitted airplane fuselages make ideal hiding spots, as does the 'Purple Plane' which is the discombobulated plane.
SMG and Shotgun fans will have a great time creeping up on unsuspecting squads.
If you played it during MW2, you probably know this place like the back of your hand - making it a comfortable location to drop into.
With it being placed right next to the Verdansk Graveyard, you can make an escape to one of the few surrounding buy stations.
We know, it looks much the same as the last POI, but there's one big reason this should be on your radar.
Aside from comparable loot and cover to the last entry, there's a sneaky gap in the perimeter wall and a silver pipe you can use to hop over it.
This could be an ideal way to either flank a squad or make a hasty retreat.
Offices and Repair Shop (55)
It's not just broken planes, you know. The offices and repair shop POI also offers apartments to explore and loot – albeit without windows.
Once you're up there, you can head to the roof and snipe from your elevated position.
There's also a warehouse with multiple entry/exit points and a second-floor balcony.
That makes it a paradise for anyone with a rifle and decent aim.
Strategy, Tips & Tricks
Zhokov Boneyard will come with plenty of loot, but little places to set up base.
It also needs to be pointed out that there are no buy stations and no vehicles. If you need to make a quick escape, you're going to be out of luck and won't have much time to linger for loot.
With a lack of buy stations here and only two in the surrounding areas, you're going to have little to work with for the end game. If the circle falls here, you'll NEED to be prepared.
Find an SMG or shotgun and chase enemies around the husks of aeroplanes, or grab something better suited to long-range and perch atop the watchtower or one of its many accessible rooftops.
The big draw to this area is how easy it is to lose chasing enemies and turn a fight on its head.
