Previously, a farmer was asking players to find the downed black helicopter in Fortnite which was flying low over his farm, but the helicopter is nowhere near Colossal Crop. Moreover, the helicopter is near the water from the Spire in the large lake north of Misty Meadows as you can see in the map down below.


However, there are speculations that the downed black helicopter refers to an IO vessel knocked down by alien forces.

Once you are done finding the helicopter, you’ll have to do further investigation. Furthermore, when you approach to investigate the helicopter, you’ll highlight it and see a ‘Tune’ prompt to interact with. This then gives you plus and minus buttons to press. Moreover, to hear the secret message, press the buttons a few times and you’ll complete the quest by receiving the following broadcast:

India Oscar field decon truck inbound, OPSEC level 3 is in effect, repeat, OPSEC 3 now a GO.”

What does the code mean? Perhaps, we’ll have to wait and watch what happens next in the Foreshadowing storyline. Moreover, the best part is the players will be rewarded 24,000 XP for the trouble they had investigating it.
