Fortnite Helicopter locations: Where to find Fortnite Choppas and take to the skies

We were expecting to see them from the start of the season after they appeared in the opening cinematic, but we had to wait a few weeks longer before Fortnite helicopters made their debut in the game. Officially known as Fortnite Choppas, these flying machines add a new mode of transport to the existing Fortnite motorboats, so we now have the option of vehicle travel by air or by water in Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 2. Being faster and not tied to waterways, Fortnite Choppas are not only the quickest way to get around the island, but you'll also need them for one of the Fortnite Meowscles' Mischief challenges as you deal damage to players while riding in a Choppa.

Unlike the motorboats, Fortnite helicopters don't have any weapons built in, though if your teammates are riding with you then they can fire their own arsenal from the sides. Fortnite Choppas do, however, have a boost for evasive manoeuvres (or to just get where you're going, faster) plus a loudspeaker you can activate to blast out Ride of the Valkyries and make all your Apocalypse Now dreams a Fortnite reality. If you're ready to take to the skies, then here are all of the Fortnite helicopter locations so you can lift off.

On the map above we've marked the locations of eleven helipads we've found, which are where the Fortnite helicopters spawn. Perhaps unsurprisingly, these are mainly found at the new Agency bases and Fortnite SHADOW safe houses, so watch out for those pesky Fortnite Henchmen and Agents if you're heading to grab one of the Fortnite Choppas from any of them. If you prefer using map coordinates to track down where you need to go, then these are the Fortnite helicopter locations:

  • E4 - The Agency
  • H5 - The Grotto
  • B7 - The Rig
  • B1 - The Shark
  • H1 - The Yacht
  • D3 - SHADOW Safe House Alpha
  • G4 - SHADOW Safe House Beta
  • F2 - SHADOW Safe House Charlie
  • E7 - SHADOW Safe House Delta
  • B4 - SHADOW Safe House Echo
  • G7 - Weather Station
