Fortnite players have uncovered an easy trick that can get you inside The Authority’s loot vault early without the need of a keycard.

Loot vaults were introduced by Epic Games at the start of Fortnite’s Chapter 2, and have become a great spot for players to visit when looking for early gear.

Getting into these vaults, which are stacked with quality weapons and items, can often prove to be a challenge, with plenty of opponents also racing to defeat the PvE enemies and make their way inside.

Fortnite players usually have to defeat PvE enemies to get a keycard for the vaults.

Fortnite players have figured out a new way to sneak into the vault, however, allowing you to bypass the hunt for the keycard entirely and get a hold of items early.

YouTuber Glitch King, who is known for finding unique Fortnite tricks, shared that players could get inside the vault by simply using a Choppa, an Upgrade Bench, and the help of a friend.


Here’s what you’ll need to do to get inside the Fortnite vaults.

How to enter Fortnite’s vaults without a keycard

  1. Find a Choppa and make your way to The Authority POI on the map.
  2. From the southeast corner of the POI, you will need to destroy the second tile from the right and the nearby feature which contains a bush.
  3. You will then need to land the Choppa in front of the broken floor and switch seats.
  4. Once you are sitting on the side of the Choppa, you will need to build walls around it and the broken floor.
  5. Your friend will then have to use the upgrade bench under the Choppa, which should glitch you through the floor and into the vault.

Glitch King revealed that this trick can be used almost anywhere on the map, with similar results, and you can catch your opponents completely off-guard with this devastating tactic.

Another glitch to sneak inside these vaults has previously been discovered, although it seems to have been patched by Epic Games shortly after it was found.


As the previous method was seemingly removed from the game, it is likely that this simple trick will also be fixed, however, it is unclear just when that will happen.

It is also 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.

We’re now in the seventh week of Fortnite’s Marvel-themed season meaning that there’s not long to go until the current battle pass items are locked away for good. Here’s everything you need to know about the latest challenges to help with your experience gains.

As with every other season, XP is vital in Fortnite. Whether you’re trying to unlock one of the 100 base tiers in the Season 4 Battle Pass, or you’re pushing beyond that for ultra-rare skins, there’s always something to pursue.


Challenges are often the best way to help boost your XP gains. Most can be knocked off in a matter of minutes for some of the biggest XP dumps possible in the battle royale. If you’ve already been ticking objectives off each week, you’ll feel right at home this time around.

From searching chests to tallying eliminations, the Week 7 challenges couldn’t be simpler. Here’s our complete overview of the eight unique tasks on offer.

Be on the lookout for enemies near Doom’s Domain this week.

You’ll be jumping around the map quite a bit this week as almost every challenge will take you to a new location. Finding eliminations at Craggy Cliffs should be a breeze as this is sure to be a hotspot over the next few days. Just be prepared for an immediate fight every time you drop here in Week 7.

The same can be said for Doom’s Domain as players will be looking to enter the vault for easy XP. Make sure you have a decent loadout before heading in as you’re sure to face some opposition here.

One rather unique challenge this week asks you to deal damage in a very specific way. First, you’ll need to find and equip Storm’s Whirlwind Blast ability. Once you’ve got an enemy in your sights, use this ability to knock them back. Once they’re pushed off course, you’ll then need to swap your weapons and deal 1,000 damage.


To tick off multiple challenges at once, you could always find Storm’s ability, then head to Craggy Cliffs, or even Coral Castle. The full list of objectives for Week 7 can be found below.

Fortnite Season 4 Week 7 Challenges:

  • Search Chests at Catty Corner (7)
  • Eliminations at Craggy Cliffs (3)

  • Discover Tony Stark’s hidden Lake House laboratory
