How to get secret Fortnite Meowscles vault key card

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.

Epic Games
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.

Epic Games have announced more details about the upcoming FNCS tournament for Fortnite Season 5, including some of the Twitch drops players will be able to get their hands on by watching the streams and the schedule of events. 

If you’ve been wondering what incentives you might be getting to watch the upcoming FNCS Season 5 tournament then you’re questions have finally been answered.

With the tournament only a couple days away, Epic has gone ahead and revealed some cool new drops that players will be able to get their hands on during the event, including some sprays, a loading screen, and more, simply by tuning into the tournament on Twitch.

Here’s how you can make sure that you’ll get the rewards.

Fortnite FNCS Season 5 Twitch drops

Epic Games
Epic has unveiled some loot that players will be able to get their hands on during the tournament.

Like most games nowadays, Epic Games is utilizing Twitch drops to give players an incentive to watch the FNCS Season 5 tournament. This means that, if you watch the tournament on various officially-supported streams that have drops enabled, you will be able to earn in-game items for Fortnite.

Some of them are a bit small like an FNCS spray and emoticon, but two of the more significant items is that of a special loading screen which features some of the characters featured in the Season 5 battle pass, as well as a cool, foam finger-style back bling.

All in all, it’s nothing too crazy, but it’s still a nice little reward for watching the tournament.

How to earn Twitch drops

Like any other Twitch drop, players will have to have their Twitch and Epic Games accounts linked before they can start earning their rewards. To do that, you’ll need to follow some simple steps, courtesy of the developers themselves.

  • Go to Epic Game’s official “Connected Accounts” page
  • Sign-in to your Epic Games account
  • Click on the “Connect” button under the Twitch tab
  • Click “Link your Account”
  • Sign-in to your Twitch account at the prompt
  • Select “Authorize”

After that, your Epic account and your Twitch account should be linked together and you’ll be able to earn items on drop-enabled streams. Once you get them, you should see them in a notification at the top of your Twitch page and they should appear in-game soon.

FNCS Season 5 streaming schedule

If you’re wondering the full streamable events, we have you covered. Epic says that they’ll be streaming the most “pivotal” stages of the competition, which only include the final rounds of the qualifiers, as well as the semi-finals and finals.

This means that, while qualifiers themselves will take place from Feb 4-7, Feb 11-14, and Feb 18-21 respectively, the only ones that will be streamed will be the final days on Feb 7, 11, and 21.

The full breakdown of times can be found below:

  • EU Region Broadcast
    • Start time: 1 PM EST
    • EU Live Coverage: 1:15 PM EST
    • Broadcast end: 4:30 PM EST
  • NA Region Broadcast
    • Start time: 5 PM EST
    • NAE Live Coverage: 5:15 PM EST
    • Break: 8:30 PM EST
    • NAW Live Coverage: 9:15 PM EST
    • Broadcast end: 12:20 AM EST

It’s important to remember that you watch either an official stream from Epic Games or a supported stream with drops enabled, otherwise you won’t get all the cool loot.
