Fortnite Battle Royale players can now cruise high in the sky with the addition of helicopters in Season 2, and we’ve got a handy map that will show you exactly where to find them. 

Epic Games are always on hand to shake up their popular battle royale title and despite the addition of their last flying vehicle being a bit of a disaster – X-4 Stormwing planes – that hasn’t stopped the developers from giving the idea another go with helicopters instead.


They were added as part of patch v12.20, which was rolled out on March 17, along with a number of other map changes. Now, with the game’s new Choppas ready to use, many players will be wondering about where they are spawning on the Fortnite island, so let’s take a look.

Helipads are scattered right the way across the Fortnite map.

As many members of the game’s community will know by now, there were a few helipads introduced along with new locations when Season 2 started. These are located at The Rig, The Grotto, The Shark, The Agency and The Yacht.


However, these points of interest aren’t the only ones to have the Choppa located there. In fact, there are a total of 11 just waiting to be used.

They can’t be used in Arena or competitive playlists at the time of writing, but the map below will show you exactly where to get one in public matches. For those looking for them with no avail so far, this should save you a lot of time.

Here are all of the Choppa locations in Fortnite Season 2.

As you can see in the map above, there are Choppas spread right across the Fortnite island and can be found in every corner of it.


If you want to give yourself the best chance of getting inside one, however, it might be a good idea to land just North of Misty Meadows or to the East of the location. That’s the part of the map where two can be found closest together.

Knowing what you now know, you should be able to easily locate and try out one of the helicopters in Fortnite Season 2. Hopefully, over time, they prove to be a better addition than the planes. We’ll wait and see.

The Fortnite Champion Series (FNCS) is back for Chapter 2 Season 4, with a return to the beloved Trios format that fans have been clamoring to see make a return. With the action kicking off on October 9, here’s everything you need to know to make sure you catch all of the action.

FNCS is making its return to trios in Season 4 for the first time since the inaugural Season X event. While it’s been a pretty poorly kept secret, there are some changes to the format from when it last appeared in August 2019.


With qualifiers now completed, we’re heading into the main stage of the FNCS Season 4 event, with a full month of competitive Fortnite on the way featuring some of the biggest names in the game competing for their cut of the prize money.

FNCS Season 4 format

FNCS Season 4 returns to the Trios format that has been used in the past, and is arguably the most popular competitive format in the tournament’s history, with past events filled with massive plays and huge battles that make for the ultimate Fortnite viewing experience.


As always, FNCS runs on a points-based scoring system, with your final placement in matches contributing to your overall score at the end of the weekend. Those who manage to win a game will receive 25 points as their reward, with the values decreasing incrementally down to 17th place, with anyone finishing below that scoring nothing. There are points for finding eliminations though, so players will be on the lookout for enemies to wipe out and add to their tally.

FNCS scoring system

  • Victory Royale: 25 Points
  • 2nd: 20 Points
  • 3rd: 16 Points
  • 4th: 14 Points
  • 5th: 13 Points
  • 6th: 12 Points
  • 7th: 11 Points
  • 8th: 10 Points
  • 9th: 9 Points
  • 10th: 8 Points
  • 11th: 7 Points
  • 12th: 6 Points
  • 13th: 5 Points
  • 14th 4 Points
  • 15th: 3 Points
  • 16th: 2 Points
  • 17th: 1 Point
  • Each Elimination: 1 Point

FNCS will be running in all the same regions it has been for the last few seasons: NA-West, NA-East, South American, EU, Middle East, Asia, and OCE, with the competition running on PC and consoles.


FNCS Season 4 will feature three weeks of qualifiers, with the top 15 teams from each week qualifying for the Grand Finals, who will be joined by the 87 teams with the highest cumulative points over the three qualifying rounds, with up to 132 teams competing in the Grand Finals on October 29.

As always, Epic Games will be hosting their own broadcast for the FNCS Season 4 events, complete with commentary and analysis to make sure you catch all the action as it happens. You can check out the official Fortnite FNCS stream on their official Twitch channel, which has been embedded below.

  • FNCS Week 2: October 16 – October 18

The first day of each week will be an open qualifier. If you make the top 33 teams, you’ll be invited to play in the next two days for a chance to make it to the Finals.


FNCS isn’t the only competition coming to Fortnite Season 4. Weekly Cash Cups for Solos and Trios will be returning, while the Dreamhack Online Open (Solo) will also take place across NA and Europe.

With players set to earn up to $111,000 for winning the whole tournament, you can rest assured that there will be plenty of action when the action kicks off.
