If you’re looking to pull off a heist at the Relentless Retreat POI in Fortnite, you’ll need to know where to get the Retreat Vault Keycard.

Chapter 4 Season 4 is all about heisting, and Fortnite players have a number of locations that are hiding away top-tier loot.

But if you’re looking to rob the Relentless Retreat vault, you’ll need to get your hands on the Retreat Vault Keycard.

So where do you find the Retreat Keycard, and where on the Fortnite island is it used? We’ve got the answers:

Where to Find the Retreat Vault Keycard in Fortnite

Fortnite players can find the Retreat Vault Keycard by eliminating the guard dressed in white clothes, who is found in the lobby outside the Relentless Retreat vault door.

How to Get the Retreat Keycard

This guard will be the toughest enemy in the whole POI to eliminate, thanks to his shield and powerful weaponry.

However, once you eliminate him, he will drop both a gold Assault Rifle but also the Retreat Vault Keycard.

The guard will always be located in the room just before the laser grid, which is directly outside the Relentless Retreat vault.

You’ll need a free slot in your hotbar to pick up the Keycard, as it takes up one of your weapon slots.

The Retreat Keycard is used to unlock the Relentless Retreat vault, which is on the bottom floor of the POI’s basement level.

When holding the Keycard, you’ll see an on-screen indicator that directs you to the vault door. Once there, interact with the terminal while holding the Retreat Keycard to open the vault.

And once inside, you’ll find any two of the following eight Mythic weapons waiting to be claimed, alongside mountains of Gold, and several Rare Chests:

  • Midas’ Drum Gun
  • TNTina’s Ka-Boom Bow
  • Ocean’s Bottomless Chug Jug
  • Kit’s Charge Shotgun
  • Kit’s Shockwave Launcher
  • Zyg and Choppy’s Ray Gun
  • The Foundation’s MK-Seven Assault Rifle
  • Gunnar’s Stinger SMG

Be warned though, you can only take one of the Mythic weapons from its display case before the whole vault goes on full lockdown.
