The Fortnite Choppa is here. Take a look at all of the known Fortnite helicopter locations as of v12.20.

The helicopters in Fortnite might be one of the most anticipated additions of Fortnite Chapter 2. Call of Duty: Warzone players might think that Epic is “copying” the new game, but they’ve been hinting at helicopters since the Season first came out.


In fact, helicopters were eerily missing from the map after watching the trailer and seeing promotional images. Epic was doing their due diligence before releasing them, which is always a positive thing to see.

This morning’s v12.20 update finally brought the Choppa to Fortnite. You can take a look at all of the stats and features of the Fortnite helicopter here.

Most Fortnite players are eager to get their hands on the new vehicle. We’ve got you covered with all of the known locations for the helicopters as of the v12.20 patch. We may see more added or removed in the future.

As of now, it appears as though the Choppa spawns at all of the Shadow hideouts and agency strongholds around the map. You’ll find them at The Rig, Grotto, Yacht, Shark, and Agency along with the secret hideouts scattered around the world.

Be careful up there. Common sense might tell you that you’ll be able to re-deploy after jumping out of a helicopter. You can’t. You will die if you’re too high off of the ground.

Helicopters offer a relatively balanced mode of transportation in Season 2. Flying too high over land can mean your death, and the lack of weapons makes them a mobility-only tool.

As of now, the Choppa does not spawn in competitive Fortnite modes. We will wait and see if this changes ahead of the upcoming Fortnite FNCS.
