How to Open Vaults in Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 3

To open a vault in Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 3, you will need to take 1 Vault Keycard to the console next to the vault.

The only exception is the Vault on Loot Island which requires two regular keys to open.

Once you’ve used the Vault Keycard, the light above the Vault door will turn green, and the door will slowly open.

It will make a loud sound, so be prepared for nearby players to hear it and come searching for you.

How to Get Vault Keycards in Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 3

The only way to get Vault Keycards in Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 3 is to defeat the Highcard boss. There is a Highcard boss accompanied by two goons roaming near every Vault.

You can find its location on your map by searching for the Highcard face icon with a blue outline near the Vault.

The Highcard boss only spawns in the middle of the match alongside the Vaults. So, you will have to wait for him to appear before you can get the Keycard.

The Highcard Boss in Fortnite

The Highcard boss is in a black suit, and his goons are in white suits. You must first down the Highcard boss and then eliminate him if any of his goons are still alive.

Even if you kill the Highcard boss, his goons will continue to attack you. So, make sure you take them out first or immediately after defeating the Highcard boss.

Once the Highcard boss has been eliminated, he will drop the Vault Keycard alongside a his Mythic Assault Rifle.
