Easy Fortnite trick lets you enter loot vaults without a keycard

A strange Fortnite glitch has been shared by YouTuber Alistair ‘Ali-A’ Aiken that allows players to sneak into the loot vaults early without the need of a keycard.

Epic Games introduced new vaults to Fortnite during the early stages of Chapter 2, Season 2, which are full of great weapons and items for players to find.

While getting into these vaults can sometimes be a challenge, with multiple opponents also racing for them and PvE enemies standing in your way, a new glitch has been found that can save you a lot of effort.

Players usually have to defeat PvE enemies before opening vaults in Fortnite.

Fortnite YouTuber Ali-A revealed that getting into these vaults can be possible even without a keycard, which are found on the henchmen surrounding the vault, to loot up with legendary gear for the late game.

He first tried the glitch in a private match and revealed that it works at both the Agency and The Rig’s loot vaults before testing it out on live servers.

Despite blurring parts of his screen while doing the glitch, fans could still work out that a strange interaction with the boats in Fortnite could allow him to glitch through the walls outside of the vault.

After a few failed attempts, Ali-A finally managed to pull it off during a public match and waited for an unexpecting opponent to come and open the vault.

The popular content creator caught his enemy completely off-guard and highlighted just how devastating this can be in-game, which later catapulted him to a second-place finish.

It is worth noting that after the glitch has been done, there is no way for players to leave until the vault door is opened by someone else, making it a high-risk, high reward exploit to attempt.

Epic Games have patched a similar exploit which allowed players to sneak into vaults in the past, so it is quite likely that this one will also be targeted by the Fortnite devs in a later update.


Epic confirms long-awaited Fortnite pre-edit changes are coming soon

It’s been a long time coming, but now Fortnite players can be put at ease: Epic are working on pre-edit changes to make building easier after years of the community petitioning.

Pre-editing has been a contentious issue in the Fortnite community for years. They’re on for all players, and helps players quickly place a lot of edited builds.

However, most players don’t use pre-editing, so its existence ends up being a hindrance more than anything. It can leave players exposed due to a poor build, something they weren’t intending at the time.

Pre-edits have been the bane of Fortnite players across the world. Thankfully, Epic are working on disabling them.

A new rallying cry across the community comes across with every new season, pleading with Epic to at least give player the option to disable pre-edits. While they’ve been dodging the issue for quite some time, there’s finally been some solid news.

After a year of uncertainty with Epic stating they were “actively considering” it, they’ve now set their course on giving the community what they want.

“We don’t have an exact timetable, but we’re going to [add a disable pre-edit option],” community coordinator TheStevieT told players on Reddit.

It comes after more clips of players dying because of their pre-edited builds went viral across Reddit and other social media platforms. It’s quite the common occurrence, and with Epic now solidifying their stance, it’s got players excited.

That being said, it could be a little while before it’s added. They’ve started work, but without an exact timetable in mind, it could be seasons down the line. One can hope that it’ll be added in Chapter 2 Season 5 at the end of 2020 though.


Another Epic staffer, gstaffEpic, clarified that such a change isn’t in any of the Fortnite builds yet. However, it’s getting close, and it’s something they’re “working towards.”

It might not be the most explosive subject, but as far as quality of life changes go, this could completely transform the way Fortnite is played. We will update you once more information arises.
