When the zone is advancing in Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 (opens in new tab) Blackout, taking a land vehicle can be risky due to the rocky terrain and the high chance of running into another player. In those scenarios, you’re best off taking a helicopter from one of the many Black Ops 4 Blackout helicopter locations. They’re spread out fairly evenly across the Black Ops 4 Blackout map (opens in new tab), so you’ll never be too far away from a helicopter - unless someone else has already taken it or it hasn’t spawned that game, of course.
In solos, taking a helicopter is risky because you’re unable to shoot since you’re piloting the thing. When you’re playing with pals though, helicopters are a great method of raining fire down upon unsuspecting enemies, dive bombing them before they can flee into buildings. Watch out for any incoming Hellion Salvo missiles though, because a couple of them will lead to your very swift demise. Here are all of the Black Ops 4 Blackout helicopter locations including the latest map update with the Hijacked ship.
