These lead to a series of small challenges/ quests and one of them involves locating the whereabouts of a downed black helicopter and investigating it. This Foreshadowing Quest is like a hint to what new is going to come in the next season of Fortnite and only makes the players more hyped.

About the Quest

This quest is simply a request by the Farmer Steel NPC, who requests the player to find and investigate a black helicopter that was flying low and scaring his corns. It has a hefty reward bonus of 24,000 XP after completion.
Now the thing is that the location of the helicopter is not mentioned anywhere and it is a part of the quest to find it in the first place.


Location of the Downed Black Helicopter in Fortnite

As the helicopter was flying low and scaring the Farmer Steel NPC’s corns, it shouldn’t have gone very far. You can find what you are looking for at the Stumpy Ridge POI. The Stumpy Ridge POI is just at the farthest South-Eastern wards of Weeping Woods, near the river bank. In other words, it can also be said that the location is near the Guardian of the Lake’s southern-most tower, near the bridge that adjoins the small island.
Please refer to the map for the exact location of the downed black helicopter.

Guide to complete the quest

The quest is as easy as it sounds, just visits the location mentioned before and search for the downed black helicopter. Then go near to it and investigate the structure and maybe fix the frequencies for some clues. It is just that easy and you will bag 24,000 XP right away.

It is recommended that you try to land right away if your looking to complete the challenge right away as many players will be around the spot. The area can be full of difficulties so you can approach it differently by landing somewhere safe and securing enough loot to visit the area after some time has passed.



This has been everything that you would need to complete this first quest of the Foreshadowing Quests. Be sure to follow us for more Fortnite Guides, How to(s), and Tips & Tricks.
