Fortnite players have discovered a new vault key card hidden on the map, leading to a secret location. Here’s how you can get your hands on it.

Vaults were added into Fortnite in Chapter 2 as a place to grab exclusive, overpowered loot that could turn the tides of a game in your favor.

Since then, many fights have broken out around them, as players look to contest others to get their hands on the prized possessions.

A new vault could be opening its doors in Fortnite soon.

While it’s slowly dwindled out, the bickering could continue in an upcoming patch, with a secret vault ⁠— and its key ⁠— being discovered after the v12.30 patch.

YouTuber ‘Ali-A’ released a tutorial on April 7, highlighting a new room that could be coming to Fortnite soon.

You’d think the vault would be positioned in an obvious spot ⁠— a POI where plenty of players drop to fight ⁠— but that doesn’t seem to be the case with this new vault key card, tied to Meowscles.

Meowscles holds the clue to Fortnite’s next vault.

The secret lies in a relatively inconspicuous warehouse in the bottom-right corner of the map. While the key card may be called the Yacht key card, it’s most definitely not found there, and it doesn’t point towards it when you get it either.

To get the special keycard, you have to defeat Meowscles in the cardboard box factory. If you find the right angle, it should be pretty easy to do without taking any damage. However, you’ll have to be careful for people third-partying, or stealing the card from you after getting the kill.

From there, the key card will point you towards the Agency. Once you make your way to the point of interest, you’ll have to do some diving into the river to find the treasure.

For mobile readers, the related segment begins at 4:40.

The key card will ⁠— eventually ⁠— be used to activate a vault near the Agency. However, when players approach the underwater shelter, the key card prompt will not pop up, for now.

It might be a case of Epic adding the item an update too early, and so players can expect it to possibly be patched out in the coming days. However, it’s good to know for when the next chapter of the Ghost vs. Shadow event comes out.

How to open chests in Upstate New York for Fortnite Week 10 challenges

The tenth week of Fortnite’s Season 4 has arrived, and with a new set of weekly challenges comes one task that asks players to open chests in Upstate New York. While this may sound confusing, here’s everything you need to make this challenge simple. 

Fortnitemares has officially arrived, with Midas reappearing for the first time since his Device experiment backfired badly, flooding the entire island at the end of Season Two. Midas has regained control of The Agency, and his army of Shadow Henchmen are ready to cause chaos.

Of course, the overarching Season 4 storyline is all about superheroes, with Marvel characters invading the island. The evil Galactus is on his way, and heroes like Tony Stark, Dr. Doom, and Wolverine have made Fortnite their home as they prepare for battle.

With these characters, new POIs and locations have appeared, and to complete this specific challenge you’ll need to head to Upstate New York. While this may sound like a strange request, it actually exists as a landmark inside the game. If you aren’t sure where to find it though, we’ve got everything you need to complete this task.

When Stark Industries arrived in Fortnite Season 4, you may have noticed that the POI is located inside what appears to be a massive bubble, which covers a large portion of the north-east corner of the island. It’s easy to spot, as the area is marked on the map for you, and the trees inside it are lovely shades of yellow and orange, compared to the normal green trees elsewhere.

Fans of Marvel Cinematic Universe will know that Stark calls New York his home, with the Stark Industries tower planted in the middle of New York City. Even the Avengers base in later films is located in Upstate New York. It shouldn’t come as a huge surprise then that his location in Fortnite was originally planted in the state of New York, which has now been transported to the island.

Thankfully, once you know where Upstate New York is, it’s easy to complete this Week 10 challenge, as all you need to do is open seven chests inside this landmark. They don’t even have to be opened in the same match, so just pick them up as you see them and you’ll finish this task eventually. If you’re still not sure where to go, we’ve included an image below.

It may take a couple of visits to Upstate New York to finish off this task, as there will be plenty of other people attempting it too. While Stark Industries has the most chests, it may be easier to head to some of the smaller buildings located in the zone, as they will be quieter and make you less likely to face enemies.

It’s well worth completing this task if you’re ranking up your Season 4 Battle Pass, as this offers a massive 25,000 XP reward, which will help you unlock new skins and cosmetic items.
