Fortnite players have found a way to use a pretty classic glitch to get inside Iron Man’s vault at Stark Industries without needing a keycard.

Ever since vaults arrived in Fortnite, players have been lining up to get inside them because of the loot they hold. These items can play a major role in getting a Victory Royale.


With the start of Chapter 2, Season 4, the vaults have become even more popular as you need to defeat one of the Marvel characters to get inside. This means that you get superpowers on top of all the rare loot.

Though, some players are bypassing the superhero fight and just heading straight for the vault – using a new twist on a classic glitch to get inside without needing a keycard.

Fortnite players are finding a backdoor to getting into Stark Industries.

As YouTuber GlitchKing shows, it’s pretty easy to get inside the vault without a keycard. In fact, you just need a car of some kind.

Once you have a car, you simply have to drive under the metal stairs that are outside of the building where the vault. As you drive underneath and keep accelerating, you should be propelled inside of the vault.

Though, as the YouTuber shows in some other attempts, you can also knock down some of the walls around the vault and drive into them too – as if this were Harry Potter and you’re looking for Platform 9 and ¾.

  1. Head to the Stark Industries POI
  2. Find a car
  3. Drive under the stairs by the building with the vault inside
  4. Keep accelerating until you are thrown inside the vault

Now, while it’s certainly possible to get inside with a keycard, it’s pretty difficult to get out without one. Unless the car glitches inside too, you’ll have to wait until someone opens it in order for you to get out.

Of course, you could give someone a pretty major shock by already being inside a locked vault, but given that it’s possible to glitch inside, many players might try and even more will cotton on to it.

It remains to be seen as to whether or not Epic Games will roll out a fix for the bug, or if it’ll just stick around until Chapter 2, Season 5.

The Fortnite Champion Series (FNCS) is back for Chapter 2 Season 4, with a return to the beloved Trios format that fans have been clamoring to see make a return. With the action kicking off on October 9, here’s everything you need to know to make sure you catch all of the action.

FNCS is making its return to trios in Season 4 for the first time since the inaugural Season X event. While it’s been a pretty poorly kept secret, there are some changes to the format from when it last appeared in August 2019.


With qualifiers now completed, we’re heading into the main stage of the FNCS Season 4 event, with a full month of competitive Fortnite on the way featuring some of the biggest names in the game competing for their cut of the prize money.

FNCS Season 4 format

FNCS Season 4 returns to the Trios format that has been used in the past, and is arguably the most popular competitive format in the tournament’s history, with past events filled with massive plays and huge battles that make for the ultimate Fortnite viewing experience.


As always, FNCS runs on a points-based scoring system, with your final placement in matches contributing to your overall score at the end of the weekend. Those who manage to win a game will receive 25 points as their reward, with the values decreasing incrementally down to 17th place, with anyone finishing below that scoring nothing. There are points for finding eliminations though, so players will be on the lookout for enemies to wipe out and add to their tally.

FNCS scoring system

  • Victory Royale: 25 Points
  • 2nd: 20 Points
  • 3rd: 16 Points
  • 4th: 14 Points
  • 5th: 13 Points
  • 6th: 12 Points
  • 7th: 11 Points
  • 8th: 10 Points
  • 9th: 9 Points
  • 10th: 8 Points

  • Each Elimination: 1 Point

FNCS will be running in all the same regions it has been for the last few seasons: NA-West, NA-East, South American, EU, Middle East, Asia, and OCE, with the competition running on PC and consoles.


FNCS Season 4 will feature three weeks of qualifiers, with the top 15 teams from each week qualifying for the Grand Finals, who will be joined by the 87 teams with the highest cumulative points over the three qualifying rounds, with up to 132 teams competing in the Grand Finals on October 29.
