Helicopter Crash

Helicopter crashes are spawned at random throughout the map. They will never be found in forests and can only be found in the open fields. Since, Helicopter Crashes spawn within the game at random times. Multiple helicopter crashes can be found in the same area, but the chance of this happening is very rare.

They can only be looted once until being reset, but they contain some of the best gear in the game. Due to this scarcity, competition for the loot spawns is common. Each site seems to have 6 loot spawns, some of which can be hidden in the ground. Zombies around the site can respawn and have a chance to drop equipment, which is mostly minor grade, but the pilot zombies can carry NV Goggles.

Believe it or not, I found 4 downed helicopters in the past 24 hours. The 1st, south of the NW Airfield on a empty server. Found an FN FAL AN/PVS-4 and an M249, The second, third and fourth were on a low pop. server. The second one was in the middle of the NW Airfield, by the control tower, already looted. The third one was northeast of the NW Airfield. From that I got a L8A52 AWS and an FN FAL. And the last one was north of Cherno. There were 2 M107's with no ammo. It was a glorious 24 hours.

@ cook: The map states (on the right bar) that "Helicopter crashes can spawn anywhere outside of forests and buildings."

Basically, any area on the map that is white is fair game, including right next to a supermarket in the middle of a town.
