How do you call the helicopter in Gray Zone Warfare?

Where and how you call a helicopter depends on where you are, as you need to call a chopper to both take you into battle and extract from it in Gray Zone Warfare. Below, we explain how to do both, and thus how to extract from the realistic FPS game with your best Gray Zone weapons in tact.

To call in a helicopter in Gray Zone Warfare, open your map, and click on the marker of your desired location. This brings up the option to ‘Call Transport’, which you should click to bring a helicopter to your current location or nearest landing zone.

To call a helicopter into battle, you will be at base camp. Click on the LZ, or Landing Zone, you wish to be taken to, and a helicopter will pick you up from base camp and transport you to that landing zone, ready for combat.

When you request the chopper, a pick-up timer appears above your location, letting you know how long until your transport arrives.

Once you are done in battle and have all the valuable gear you need, extracting works in the same way as landing in, but you must instead get to the LZ first, and select base camp as your destination. Again, a timer appears above the LZ your helicopter is collecting you from, so make sure you’re near enough when you call it in.

It’s as simple as that to call in a Gray Zone Warfare helicopter, but the hard part comes from being on the ground.
