Opening vaults is one of the many rewarding activities you can participate in when you play Fortnite Chapter 3. When playing the game, you will come across a total of seven of these vaults. This is because they belong to The Seven. If you are one of the many gamers who are curious to know how you can open these vaults, you need not worry anymore. In this guide, we will show you exactly how to break each of these guides, along with their locations.
How to Open Vaults in Fortnite Chapter 3 – All Locations
In order to open vaults in Fortnite Chapter 3, you will need to make sure you have your entire team with you. At the very least, you need to make sure you have one player apart from you to accompany you.
Once you gather your team, you will find the vaults located in Seven Outposts (called so because of the fact they belong to The Seven). You will notice that these vaults are blocked and guarded by NPCs. However, these characters are non-hostile in nature. This means they will not attack you nor prevent you from opening the vault. Because of this, we recommend you avoid firing at them in the first place, as this will be pointless.
In fact, when you plan to open the vaults in Fortnite, you will notice that the real threat comes from enemies, and not the NPCs guarding the vaults. Because of this, you need to keep an eye out for them.
Once you get past the enemy hurdles and manage to open the vault by gathering your team, you will find seven chests inside. These chests will contain different types of items each. Now that you know how to open these vaults, let us take a look at their locations in the game.
Fortnite Vault Locations
- Vault 1: Northwest of Logjam Lumberyard
- Vault 2: Near the river northwest of Camp Cuddle
- Fortnite Vault 3: Southwest of Greasy Grove
- Vault 4: On the southeastern coast of the lake west of Coney Crossroads
- Vault 5: Northeast of The Daily Bugle
- Fortnite Vault 6: On an island east of Sanctuary
- Vault 7: Along the road south of Condo Canyon
How to Open a Vault as a Solo Player?
Hire an NPC
The first method you can use to open the vaults in Fortnite as a solo player involves hiring an NPC. In order to do so, you will need to first make your way to the Landmark launchpad. Once you do so, you need to find an NPC called The Visitor. Upon finding the said NPC, you will need to hire him by spending 95 Gold Bars. Now, simply swim to the island located towards the south of the Landmark. The Vault is located on this island. You need to lead your newly-hired NPC ally into the island and locate the vault. Once you find it, all you need to do is wait for the vault to scan both you and the NPC. As soon as the vault completes the scan, it will open.
Trap an NPC
Another way to open a vault all by yourself in Fortnite is by trapping an NPC without shooting it. What you need to do is build a structure above the vaults. You need to harvest this structure and then turn it into your own build. As soon as the said NPC enters this structure, you need to edit it so that it drops into the vault. Once the NPC is in the vault, you need to make sure there is no way for it to escape. Now, the vault will simply detect two bodies and open itself.
Knocking Down a Seven Member NPC
The last method to open a vault solo in the game is by knocking down one of the Seven Member NPCs. Once you do so, carry the NPC to the vault. Just like in the other methods, the vault will scan two bodies and open itself. The one drawback with this method, though, is the fact that knocking down one of the Seven Members will result in the rest of them shooting at you. So keep this in mind before you go ahead with this method.
So there you have it. These are all of the vault locations as well as how to open them (both, as a team, as well as solo) in Fortnite Chapter 3. As you can see, this is one of the most rewarding ways to get your hands on rewards in the game.
