Where to find Choppa helicopters in Fortnite?
With the arrival of Season 3, the location of helicopters has changed somewhat, since the water has arrived in a massive way. Nevertheless, we still find a large number of them.

What's more, the map visible above will be updated regularly, depending on the evolution of these helicopters.
Finally, please note that the article will be updated from season to season, or between times if necessary depending on major map developments.
