This page covers the Mod version of DayZ. For information on the Standalone see Helicopter Crash Sites


Helicopter Crash Sites can be found in various locations throughout Chernarus and are most commonly found on open fields or on hillsides. The locations of the crash sites vary for each server. These sites are highly sought after because they spawn the rarest weapons available in the game, such as the DMR and M249 SAW.

Crash Sites will randomly spawn at any of the 200 locations across the map, though they will almost always spawn in the North-West of the map, near the North West Airfield (NWAF), where the majority of the spawn points are located. However, the can occasionally spawn farther south - even on the coast - though this is rare.

Crash sites do not spawn at the server startup, but during the course of the server's runtime. This means that it is best to search for crash sites after several hours of server uptime, as there will be far more spread across the map than directly after a restart.

Mi-17 crash sites spawn mainly Soviet-era weapons, are were probably flown by the local Chernarussian Defense Forces before the outbreak. They are generally the most common type of crash site. Western weapons, such as the M40A3 and FAL are also known to spawn here. There are only two Mi-17 crash variants, a United Nation variant, and a Chernarus Defense Force variant. United Nation crash sites typically spawn medical items or food. Chernarus Defense Force crash sites spawn military grade loot.

A Merlin Helicopter Crash Site

These British helicopters spawn both British and German weapons, and are the second most common crash site, after the Mi-17. Although to the untrained eye the Merlin may look similar to the Mi-17, they are completely different helicopters.

Looting[edit | edit source]

Loot Crash sites with caution. The large smoke plume that alerted you to the Crash may draw in other players. Keep in mind that loot does not Re-spawn or De-spawn at crash sites, so take your time. Scan the area around the Helicopter and ideally have someone cover you. Do not neglect safety.
