Fortnite Choppa guide: Where to find all helipad locations

Fortnite’s 12.20 update introduced major additions to the battle royale shooter, including map changes, a limited-time event, and a new aerial vehicle — the Choppa. Players can now use the helicopter to zoom around the island, hunt down enemies, and quickly escape as the storm closes in on the ever-shrinking safe zone.

Choppa details and stats

The Choppa is Fortnite’s newest option for aerial combat and travel, similar in nature to the Stormwing airplanes from season 7. Each helicopter comes with 1,500 health points, making it difficult for even seasoned players to take one down.

The Choppa holds up to five players at a time — one pilot and four passengers, who can rain down bullets from either the side of the helicopter. Unfortunately, players won’t find the new vehicle in any competitive modes like Arena. It is only in the standard, non-ranked battle royale modes like Squads and Team Rumble.

The Choppa is only found on helipads scattered around the island, typically at the new named locations introduced this season and the Shadow safe houses. There are 11 helipads with Choppa spawn points so far. You can find all of them in the general map above and get detailed descriptions of their locations below.

The best weapons in Fallout 4 and where to find them
People standing outside Nuka World.

Bethesda titles are massive, with tons of loot to acquire. From the fantasy series of Elder Scrolls VI, to the sci-fi world of the future in Starfield, the one thing they share is a wide range of weapons. In the wastelands of Fallout 4, the weapons (and their cool names) are a major perk. Some weapons might give you an edge, but others feel as if they’re just for show.

While more common weapons like the submachine gun, hunting rifle, or powerful Gauss rifle will serve you well in the wasteland (especially if you add a weapon mod), there are a few rare weapons in the game that you'll want to get your hands on.
