Fortnite 12.20 patch notes are ready to roll out in-game with plenty of new weapons and helicopter.

Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 2 made a lot of changes on the map with the addition of helipads in different parts of the island.

These helipads are proof of upcoming flying vehicle on the island.

In the past, Flying vehicles were tested many times.

Like  X-4 Stormwing planes or Quadcrashers but none of them worked for too long.

But after the implementation of helipads on the island it is very much clear that Fortnite is all set to add Choppers in-game and this time they will be there permanently.
