How to Open a Vault Using a Vault Keycard in Fortnite

Keep your cards close.

While the Weekly Quests may be getting simpler in Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 2, that doesn’t mean they are all getting easier. Week 4 calls for players to open a Vault using a Vault Keycard, and as you might expect, getting to that room full of loot is no walk in the park.

As is the trend with so many other missions given out each week, this quest is tied to one of the few map objectives that appear as a battle royale match progresses. To ensure you get the Vault Keycard first, we’ll outline the full Vault process in our Fortnite guide.

Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 2 – How to Open a Vault Using a Vault Keycard

There is only one way to initially get the Vault Keycard within any given battle royale match. After the first circle close, there will be a Highcard Boss that appears shortly after. When the boss is about to spawn, a rift symbol will appear on your screen and you’ll be able to see the mask symbol with a key on your map.

Only one boss will spawn in each Fortnite match within one of three locations: Shattered Slabs, Brutal Bastion, or Mega City. Like any other PvE boss in the past, you’ll need to take out the Highcard Boss and his minions to earn a bright Vault Keycard. You’ll be led to the Vault right after, which is always at the same POI.

Other players on the map can see the key moving, along with the location of the Vault, so be careful. This is also a chance for you to steal the key from an enemy. What really matters is making it to the location so you can open a Vault using a Vault Keycard and complete the Week 4 Quest in Fortnite.
