This map is great for long-range battles. If you are trying your luck as a sniper then this is the place to be in. Talking about the west side of the map you will find railroads and rocky areas here. And in the east, there are straight paths from north to south directions which are fairly long.

Coming to the center part. It has a large lumber yard and it is a hotspot for scavs to spawn. Also, it is quite choking in here as lots of players pass through this place. This place is host to many snipers in the lumber yard. There is a pretty long rock formation around this place where, you can say, almost all the time there is someone or other hanging out there.

There is one more sniper spot which is even more popular, in fact, most popular for snipers. It is the Sniper rock in the south. The reason for its popularity is because of the fact that the region covered through this spot is max. for the entire map. You can always explore these areas for utilizing them to the maximum, particularly if you are new.

Spawning at east is pretty good but if you spawn at the west you can find some folks around the Factory and the Shack. There is also a body of water where you can snipe off people.

The Boss

Woods map has a powerful scav boss known as Shturman. The boss usually spawns around or in the Lumberyard area, you can find it on the right-middle of the map.

You may also find Shturman at the Sawmill, so be sure to keep an eye around that area when you’re passing from because as long as he spots you won’t get any chance to get cover or dodge his attacks. He has a sniper rifle and an AR so he’s accurate enough in both long-range and short-range battles.

The boss has 2 followers and they are heavily equipped with the powerful AR and VSS along with the Class 6 vest armor. So, you’ll gonna have some time to kill both of them before you go for the boss.

Once you defeat the Shturman and his 2 guards you might get some loots from there.
