The Fortnite servers are down and we definitely realize what we can expect in the present v12.20 update including the ‘choppa’ helicopter.
It’s been two weeks since the last update, v12.10, and Epic are discharging the v12.20 update today with servers as of now down for upkeep. The v12.10 update didn’t get a lot of terms of new highlights of things causing it to appear to be any longer than about fourteen days when the last major Fortnite update discharged.
Dataminers in the last update expressed that there were a few documents for helicopters that will be presented in Fortnite and it would seem that they’ll be accessible in-game today once the servers are back up. This is what we think about Fortnite helicopters up until this point.
Fortnite Helicopter Choppa
The v12.10 update two weeks prior included some data the helicopter vehicle that would be added to Fortnite.
One of the most underrated yet best dataminers, Spedicey1, stated that helicopters will have 1,500 health. He also stated that the helicopters will most likely be a solo vehicle, although that was more of an opinion as it would always be unlikely a helicopter would only be a one man flying vehicle.
It was obvious helicopters were going to be added to Fortnite as chapter 2 season 2 launched with helipads around the Fortnite map. Furthermore, Epic added several more helipads around the map in the v12.10 update.
We also have some official information on helicopters thanks to a leak. The German app store has a description for today’s v12.20 update and it specifically mentions helicopters. The description for the Fortnite iOS app can be seen below:
Get in and lift off. Grab up to 4 other squadmates and take on the enemy teams with this new vehicle.
There it is, we’ll be getting helicopters today in Fortnite that’ll seat up to 4 other squadmates. We also have information on some other new features in the update.
The helicopter will be called ‘Choppa’ and here’s a trailer for it:
There’ll be something called The Spy Games and a new feature called easy interact. Easy interact is a new way to loot with large icons for interactions and loot pick up. This feature is obviously only for mobile players to make it easier to look.
The spy games allows players to jump into the Operation: Dropzone LTM and use the new tech system in order to unlock perks to use in the Spy Games.
It’s unlikely we’ll get official Fortnite Patch Notes, so we’ll post our own unofficial patch notes a couple of hours after the servers are back up.
