The Western High Desert is a region in Scorched Earth.


The Western High Desert is one of the first places you should spawn in if you are a beginner in scorched earth. This place is between the green and blue obelisks and is nearest to the red obelisk. There are mountains surrounding this place where Carnos, Argentavis, and Sabertooths can possibly drop from and attack you. This place isn't very rich in metal; however, the mountains surrounding Western High Desert are rich in metal and crystals.

South of Western High Desert is Southern West High Desert, which spawns many Raptors, Terror Birds, and Daeodons, which stray into Western High Desert, and that's a problem, for beginners.
