How to Return to Marvel’s Avengers Helicarrier & Ant Hill

To return to the Helicarrier in Marvel’s Avengers, all you have to do is hover over it at the War Table. Then, press and hold Square on PS4 (or whatever the equivalent is on your platform). That’ll transport you directly on board the Helicarrier. You can see what all that looks like in the first screenshot below.

If you want to go back to Ant Hill, you can also do so from the War Table. Enter into the Utah Badlands section, then go down to the “Return to Outpost” tab in the bottom. Select that, and off you go to the Ant Hill to visit the base established by the good Dr. Hank Pym. Once again, you can see what you need to do in the second screenshot below.

And that’s all that there is to it when it comes to going back to the Helicarrier and Ant Hill in Marvel’s Avengers.

    Been playing on Xbox, the option to return to both helicarrier or Ant Hill dissapears after playing a mission or two. So far my only fix has been to exit the game and reload.

      I just found out, if you go to the war table and switch campaign from reassemble to avengers initiative, you should get the option to return to outpost.
