Fortnite Vault Locations and How to Get Vault Keys

coffers can be found on the map in Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 4. Still, if you want to open a safe, you need to know how to get a vault key.

Vault keys are, unsurprisingly, the key to opening a trunk in Fortnite and, without one, you might miss out on some very useful loot.

Since not all chests will spawn in every match, it’s a good idea to know the vault locations so you don’t waste your safe keys.

How to Open a Safe in Fortnite

Opening a safe in Fortnite has become much easier, especially when playing solo, in Chapter 3 Season 4, as it no longer requires two players.

Instead, you need to search for a vault key and then head to the nearest vault to earn your loot. Once there, simply insert your key in the lock and start opening chests – until another player gets there first!





There are, however, safes on the island that require two safe keys to open. For this reason, you need to know how to find vault keys…


How to Get Vault Keys in Fortnite

Vault Keys can be found either in chests or sitting on the ground in certain locations across the Fortnite map. It’s important to note that not all chests contain a Vault Key, so don’t be surprised if it takes you a while to find one.


Keys to the safe can be found waiting on the floor.

You can also earn Chest Keys by defeating players who are carrying one, because just like their weapons, the Chest Key will drop after they die. There’s no way to tell if a player is carrying a Vault Key though, so keep your eyes peeled when an enemy falls. You might even lie in wait and assassinate someone just as they open a safe!

Remember that some of the hidden chests on the map can only be opened using two chest keys.

Before that, make sure you get all the remaining Battle Pass rewards you want, unlock the Indiana Jones skin (give yourself plenty of time to solve the secret door outside the main chamber in the Shuffled Shrines puzzle!), and make sure you you to spend those gold bars. Meanwhile, learn to expand your character collection and learn how to earn the Victory Umbrella and Victory Crowns.


Fortnite Chest Locations

As of this writing, we’ve found 14 hidden vaults on Fortnite Island. It’s important to note that not all locations will appear in every match, so it’s always worth checking your in-game map to see which ones are available to you.

Vault locations, however, will only appear on this map after finding a Vault Key. Each location is represented by a lock – locks with one keyhole require one key, while those with two require two keys to open.

Here are the vault locations we’ve found so far at a glance:
