Fortnite has had vaults for a while now, but each season tends to move the locations around and change how you obtain the keycards needed for opening them. Chapter 4 Season 2 has done this once again, requiring you to take down a boss to earn a keycard and get your hands on that sweet loot. Here are all of the vault locations in Chapter 4 Season 2 and how to open them.
How to open vaults in Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 2
Opening vaults in Chapter 4 Season 2 will require you to get your hands on a Vault Keycard–except for the one on Loot Island, which just requires you to use two standard keys. The Vault Keycard only drops from defeating the seasonal boss Highcard. He spawns near the vault locations we’ve listed below and is relatively easy to defeat so long as you come prepared with full shields and a decent stock of ammo.
When you’ve obtained the Vault Keycard, you’ll be able to head over to the nearby vault, which will contain a wide variety of healing items, high-tier weapons, and more. If you can’t find the vault, simply equip the keycard and the game will direct where to go. This will usually mean you’ll have a great opportunity to pick up the new Mythic version of the Havoc Pump Shotgun, which is an extremely powerful weapon to have at your disposal–especially when paired with Highcard’s Havoc Suppressed Assault Rifle, which you likely already snagged from defeating the boss.
All vault locations in Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 2
So far, we’ve found four total vaults in Season 2. There is one at Brutal Bastion  located in the snow area of the map to the north. Another is located at Shattered Slabs  on the western segment of the map where everything is autumn-themed. The third location is at the new MEGA City  POI in the southeastern section of the map where you’ll probably be spending a good bit of time doing quests and such this season.
The fourth and final vault we’ve found is on Loot Island, which is a POI that rifts in at random locations across the map and will require you to ride up a zipline to access the area. As mentioned above, though, this vault is unique in that you’ll have to use two normal keys to open the door, rather than a Vault Keycard. It’s also likely to be flooded with enemy players, as the loot available here is excellent, so don’t run in poorly equipped. Find everything new in Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 2 here.
