Apex Legends exploit to get into loot vault without a key

Apex Legends players have found a clever way to glitch into one of the vaults on World’s Edge without using a key to get in. Here’s how you can sneak into this loot bunker early.

The first loot vaults were introduced alongside the Worlds Edge map, at the start of Season 3, and have since become a go-to spot for players to get their hands on high-tier loot.


Getting into these vaults can prove to be a challenge though, as you would usually have to track down Cargo Bots to get inside, but some Apex players have now found a unique way to sneak in without getting a key first.

These Apex Legends loot vaults can normally only be opened with a key.

Apex Legends YouTuber TaylorHobbs shared this strange, and rather tricky glitch, revealing how to break into the Geyser’s loot vault on the World’s Edge map.


He explains that the vault could only be accessed using Revenant and Pathfinder’s abilities, which means you will need the help of a friend to pull off this trick.

While the glitch requires you to fly outside of the map near Overlook, you can grab a few weapons first and simply glide out using the Jump Tower. Here’s what you’ll need to do.

How to get into Apex Legends vault without a key

  1. Select Revenant and Pathfinder.
  2. Load into a game and make your way to the Overlook POI.
  3. Glide, from the dropship or the nearby Jump Tower, to the opposite side of the mountain.
  4. Use Pathfinder’s Zipline to move through the rocks, towards the vault.
  5. Once you make it to the loot vault, climb above it and drop down outside of the south wall.
  6. Place Revenant’s Ult on the edge of the lava texture under the vault.
  7. Activate Revenant’s Death Protection and jump down into the valley below to respawn in the loot vault.

The Apex player revealed that there is no way to get out of the vault from the inside, meaning you will need your third teammate to open the door for you from the outside, or wait for an unsuspecting enemy.


Despite being quite a challenge to pull off,  it is likely that Respawn will look to patch this in one of their future updates, but for now, it’s still possible.

Of course, there are easier ways to get inside the vault. Such as the guaranteed key out of one of the cargo bots, or by simply using Loba’s ultimate to access the loot inside.

Apex Legends update 1.48 fixes broken Pathfinder: Patch Notes

The Apex Legends 1.48 hotfix update has dropped and will hopefully address the troublesome Pathfinder bug that some people have encountered, while cleaning up a few more issues that Respawn noticed.

As the next phase of the battle royale takes shape in Season 6, there’s been a fair few changes to Legends across the board. However, even when the meta is going smoothly, problematic glitches tend to appear at the worst times.


Respawn dropped three bug fixes in the 1.48 patch, containing solutions for recurring issues dealing with Crypto’s EMP ultimate ability, Pathy’s Grapple, as well as the HUD elements that can sometimes get in the way of each other.

These have all been widely reported by the Apex community, who now hope it’ll be the last time they’ll have to put up with it in their matches.

Pathfinder’s shoulder bug

Apex players should be able to use Pathfinder’s Grapple Hook without hesitating, now that Respawn have launched a fix to the shoulder bug that would cover the screen.

His animation for the Tactical Ability can sometimes cause the screen to get clogged up by his shoulder. This would leave players frustrated seeing as they couldn’t relieve the situation by any means.

But the devs think they resolved the issue on their end, though players were already saying the update didn’t really fix the problem.


Crypto EMP weapon bug

While the Pathfinder bug interrupted people’s line of sight, Crypto’s EMP bug indirectly disabled the Surveillance Expert’s ability to use a gun.

Respawn said they’ve fixed an issue where “Crypto was unable to use weapons when triggering EMP while not in drone mode.”

This would obvious create a ton of problems for people trying to create a play with the EMP, making it a high-priority target for the devs to resolve.


Finally, the studio changed up the HUD elements a bit, since they saw that the ‘Performance Display’ would sometimes overlap with the Kill/Assists on the screen.

The hotfix patch will hopefully give players an easier time navigating in the Arena. While it’s a relatively small patch, check out the notes below, courtesy of Respawn.

  • Pathfinder’s shoulder staying in view after using grapple
  • Crypto unable to use weapons when triggering EMP while not in drone mode
  • Moved Performance Display so it doesn’t overlap with Kill/Assists HUD element in Ranked
