GET TO THE CHOPPA – The last flying vehicle we had was planes in Season 7!

Introduced in this patch is Fortnite’s latest vehicle, it has been quite some time since we had the addition of a new vehicle, being the boats at the beginning of the new chapter. The helicopters were leaked in the game files over two weeks ago from the last Fortnite update, and have now been unveiled as the Choppa.

The Choppa is what you might expect out of a helicopter, it can carry your whole team in it, allowing for easy rotates across the map. As well, the main flyer in the Choppa can shoot rockets down at your enemies below! We will have to wait and see if this is overpowered or not.

The Choppa is only useable in public matches and not competitive playlists!

WINNER TAKES ALL – The new Spy Games LTM is one of a kind!

Epic Games have never afraid to mix things up with their ever-evolving LTM game modes; these are constantly changing so we usually get a new one every few days or so.

The lastest one to be added into the game files and one we should be able to play soon is The Spy Games. The new LTM will pit players against each other as either Team Ghost or Shadow, then players can buy perks or other items to gain an upper hand on their opponents. This appears to be a very promising LTM that we are looking forward to testing out!
