Fortnite keys - How to find and use Vault Keys

If you're looking for the Fortnite vault keycards and how they work, this is everything you need to know. Being a more recent addition to the game, there's quite a lot to figure out when it comes to Fortnite vaults. Let's go over how to find the vault keycards and where to find the vaults.

There are a total of seven to find and they need keycards instead of the vault keys in the past. Though you should never rely on cracking one open to win a match, getting lucky enough to bust them open will give you the guns and gear you'll need to stand a fighting chance at a victory royale.

How to get a Fortnite vault keycard

Vaults have come back in Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 4 and there are seven of them scattered across the island. To open them, instead of keys, you will need to defeat a very difficult boss with a huge health bar that defends the vaults.

You will have to face the boss Highcard who holds a vault keycard that can open the vault. They are located at each of the vault locations, but they will only spawn in the middle of the game.

The best way to make these bosses appear is to defeat all enemies in the location, prepare your best gear and weapons, and wait.

In a few moments, the Highcard and his two henchmen will appear, so defeat them to loot the vault keycard.
