|View on Zub Castle from north|
Zub Castle is a small castle ruin a few hundred meters south of Vyshnoye. It is not well hidden by the trees, so it is easily seen from a distance -- conversely, it is easy to get to and more readily serves as a landmark for navigation. The view from the top of its tower is quite good. Vyshnoye is directly to the north and Mogilevka is to the southeast, both easily accessible by road once you trek back down the hill.
The castle has two buildings that can be entered: a three story tower and an archway. Zombies often spawn on the tower's ground floor room. While the old ruins give some cover, they also attract a lot of survivors. Just east of the castle at the foot of the hill is a usable well and two lootable houses. Overall the risk/reward-level of Castle Zub is superior - especially when you consider its proximity to Mogilevka.
Currently in the Standalone, due to the positioning of the keep in relation to the floor, it is almost impossible to enter the keep and go up the stairs.
