How to Get Heavy Chopper Fuel for Private Exfil in MW2 DMZ

Season 3 of Warzone 2 provides players the ability to easily and privately exfiltrate from the DMZ maps using a Heavy Chopper. The chopper can be easily found on the map, but once you find it and hop in the driver’s seat, you’ll quickly realize that the chopper spawns without fuel.

To exfiltrate from the DMZ using the chopper, you will need to first find the Heavy Chopper Fuel to fill its tank. The Heavy Chopper Fuel spawns in three different locations: the Train Station, the Smuggler’s Den, and the Airport.

However, since these locations are vast and have numerous buildings and structures, finding the Heavy Chopper Fuel can become a very daunting task. To make things easier for you, this guide will show you how to obtain the Heavy Chopper Fuel in DMZ in the quickest way possible.

What does the heavy chopper fuel look like?

The Heavy Chopper fuel is extremely valuable, as it allows you to fly the Heavy Chopper, which can be used for exfiltration from the map at any time. You first learn about the fuel in the Flight Risk faction mission.

If you want to fly the chopper without putting in the effort to find the fuel, you will have to spend a whopping $50,000 at a Buy Station to call it. Therefore, knowing how to find this fuel quickly will give you a massive advantage over other players.

Before you try to find this fuel, you need to know what it looks like. This will make the search process much easier, as you will know exactly what you are looking for.

The Heavy Chopper Fuel is green in color and is shaped like a regular fuel container. It does not have any special markings on it. We have attached an image below to show you exactly what it looks like.

How do you obtain Heavy Chopper Fuel in MW2 DMZ?

According to the game itself, Heavy Chopper Fuel spawns in the following three locations on the map:

  3. The Airport.

If you want to find the chopper fuel as quickly as possible, the best location is the Train Station. However, the game somewhat misleads players by telling them that the fuel is found at the Train Station because it is actually found on the Cargo Train itself, not at the station.

The train is the best way to find the fuel because the process of looting the train is much easier compared to looting the Airport or the Smuggler’s Den. If you choose to find the fuel in the latter two areas, you will have to spend a lot of time running through different structures in search of the fuel.

While on the train, you simply need to search each compartment one by one, and you’ll find the fuel quickly. Unfortunately, there is no specific compartment that contains the fuel, as its spawn points are random. Therefore, you’ll have to keep searching compartments until you find the fuel.

But one thing to keep in mind is that the Cargo Train is a very popular location in Al Mazrah; therefore, there are usually many players present there looking for loot.

Thus, acquiring fuel from the Cargo Train can be an extremely dangerous mission due to intense competition. It is highly recommended to board the train with multiple teammates, as going there alone almost guarantees death.

While looting the train, remember to loot all players’ bags on the train. Someone could have picked up the fuel and died with it; therefore, if you check all the players’ bags, there is a high chance that one of them will contain the fuel.

If you’re struggling to loot the Cargo Train without getting eliminated, don’t worry, as you can also find the fuel at the Airport and the Smuggler’s Den.

If you choose to search the airport, the best spot for finding it is in the hangar. And if you choose to search the Smuggler’s Den, make sure not to overlook the workstations present inside the various rooms, as the fuel can sometimes be found sitting on them.

How to Use the Heavy Chopper’s Fuel.

Once you’ve acquired the Heavy Chopper Fuel, head towards the Heavy Chopper. You can find where it is by locating its icon on your map.

After finding the chopper, enter the driver’s seat and open your inventory. Press the designated button to fill the chopper with Heavy Chopper Fuel. You can then exfiltrate from Al Mazrah by simply flying the chopper out of the map.
