Iron Man and the Stark Industries POI has descended on to the Fortnite map, meaning there are new abilities to grab and another vault to open. So, here’s everything you need to know. 

Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 4 has been all about the Marvel theme. Be it in the form of cosmetics like the Storm skin, Groot’s superpowers, or even the Doom’s Domain POI – there’s something for pretty much every Marvel fan.


Of course, you can’t have a Marvel theme without Tony Stark. Iron Man himself is available as a skin and his downed Quinjets offer players the chance to wield one of the Stark Industry Rifles.

Now, following a few updates, Epic Games have made it possible for you to take on the role of Iron Man yourself.

How to open Stark Industries vault in Fortnite

That’s right, with the arrival of Stark Industries, you can explore the POI and become the leader of the Avengers yourself. But, that’s not all. 

Just like Doom’s Domain, when that took the place of Pleasant Park, there’s also a vault to unlock using a special keycard. It’s pretty simple, defeat Stark, take his card, and open the vault. 

In reality, it can pretty difficult. Iron Man has a tonne of health to contend with and his Repulsor can blast through cover easily. You’ll have to jab and move with an assault rifle to take him down – and you’ll also have to avoid the Stark bots that are around the place too. 

  1. Head to the Stark Industries POI.
  2. Loot weapons and eliminate Iron Man.
  3. Loot Iron Man for his keycard and abilities.
  4. Take the keycard to the Vault – it’s in a different building across from the main one.
  5. Open up the vault and enjoy the goodies inside!

Of course, with so much loot on offer – and not to mention the strength of Iron Man himself – it’s not going to be the easiest thing in the world to do. There’s also new Iron Man chests waiting inside, so expect good weapons and items to spill out when opened. 

So, make sure you watch your back and take care. But if you do get inside the vault, and get Iron Man’s abilities, you’ll be on track for that all-important Victory Royale.

Epic Games have had four of their upcoming Fortnite bundles leaked following the v14.30 update, but it’s unclear if this is all that’s coming with the Fortnitemares Halloween event. 

The game’s developers have arguably been a little slower than usual for rolling out new content in the battle royale title, yet we are quickly approaching a busy time of year for the game – the festive season.


In the weeks and months ahead, we can expect to see a full-blown Halloween event, coupled by their holiday challenges and updates.

For now, though, we’ll just have to settle for a few bundles here and there to keep the game ticking over. Some of them look impressive nonetheless.

Fortnite has been given a big shakeup in recent times, and more bundles are coming.

Fortnite leaked bundles from v14.30 update

Following the rollout of the game’s latest patch, which saw the introduction of a Rally Royale LTM and gave the Pump Shotgun a big buff, leakers were quickly hard at work finding unreleased content.

On October 13, ShiinaBR hit the jackpot with four different bundles – as seen below.

They include Daredevil’s red skin, as well as previously released Halloween skins that will likely return to the Item Shop.


The data miner didn’t put an expected release date on any of these bundles, or prices for that matter, but their introduction to the game files suggests players won’t have to wait long before they are made available to use in-game.

As mentioned earlier, Halloween is just around the corner for the community, so we should expect even more weird and wonderful skins to be released in the near future.

If it goes down anything like this patch, they will probably be leaked ahead of time as well – so keep your eyes peeled.
