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.

A number of weapons and items have been either vaulted or unvaulted in Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 5, including some fan favorites and old classics. 

Fortnite Season 5 officially dropped on Wednesday, December 2, bringing a number of major changes with it. As specified in the new update’s patch notes, the game is going to look pretty different going forward.

Some big map changes hint toward a slow revert back to the old map, with the likes of Flush Factory and Dusty Depot starting to come back, which is more than enough reason to get excited.

And, although new weapons such as the Dragon Shotgun have arrived, one thing all players will be looking for is the old items that have returned from the vault, and those which have been placed back in it.

Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 5 is named Zero Point — and brings some fun changes to the game.

Vaulted weapons

Vaulted weapons are those that have been stashed away, unplayable in the game, that might one day return to the game.

Here’s what we know has been vaulted:

  • Revolver
  • Fire Trap
  • Scoped Assault Rifle
  • Epic/Legendary Pump Shotgun
  • Legendary Combat Shotgun
  • Scar assault rifle
  • Epic/Legendary Tac SMG

Unvaulted weapons

Of course, with some weapons leaving the game, some are making their grand return. Here’s what:

  • Charge Shotgun
  • Double Barrel Shotgun
  • P90
  • SMG
  • Storm Scout Rifle
  • Tactical Shotgun
  • Balloons

So, that’s everything that’s been vaulted or unvaulted according to the patch notes for Fortnite Season 5, and there’s definitely some there that we’re going to miss, such as the Scar assault rifles and Pump shotguns, but the Tactical Shotgun and P90 making a return could make up for that and keep the weapons feeling fresh and fun.

With a number of big streamers starting to switch back to Fortnite, it looks like Season 5 could be one of the biggest yet — so have fun destroying those new and returning players!
