Loot Lake vault looks set to make a return in Fortnite Season 2

Eagle-eyed Fortnite fans have noticed an incredibly strange occurrence on the Chapter 2 map of late – the Loot Lake vault that spearheaded Chapter 1’s carnage has been frequently reappearing. 

Fans of Fortnite’s first chapter will be well aware of the carnage caused by Loot Lake’s vault. Multiple world-bending events saw the vault responsible for all kinds of carnage, including sending the island in Loot Lake’s centre on multiple tours of the map.


Despite its centrality to the narratives of Chapter 1, Loot Lake was, like many other fan-favorite POIs, ditched for the game’s second chapter in favor of a brand new map and a host of new locations.

Since Chapter 2’s map dropped back in October, players have noticed some minute similarities between the two maps.


The most noticeable is probably at Steamy Stacks and the Kevolution Energy plant. There’s a small statue of Kevin the Cube, the giant 3D object that roamed the map over Chapter 1.

However, one Fortnite fan by the Reddit name u/Koooooomar has since discovered a suspicious image that’s been slowly coming into focus over the past few weeks.

As the images become clearer, fans have drawn the unmistakable parallel with the Loot Lake vault. Although difficult to discern, the pattern displayed on the top of the opening to the vault appears to be identifiable.

The images appear remarkably similar.

So, what does it all mean? It certainly appears to draw more parallels between the maps from Chapter 1 and Chapter 2.

Despite the fact there is no Loot Lake on the Chapter 2 map, the vault could easily surface from under another body of water, like under The Agency, which sits in a very similar position to Loot Lake in terms of its position on the map.

We don’t exactly know what the season-ending event for Season 2 is going to be, but it’s a fair assumption that the vault could come in to play. What we don’t know, however, is how it will overlap with the other clues we’ve found, like Midas’ head collection or a leaked skin known only as ‘Spy’.


Epic Games love their cryptic teasers, and it doesn’t look like they’re changing their ways in Fortnite’s second chapter.

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)
  • Enter the Vault in Doom’s Domain
  • Destroy Cobwebs at The Authority (3)
  • Discover Tony Stark’s hidden Lake House laboratory
  • Drive a car from Sweaty Sands to Misty Meadows in less than 4 minutes without getting out

  • Deal damage to opponents at Coral Castle (500)

If you’re struggling with the unique tasks this week, here’s a few quick pointers. Storm’s ability can be used to knock enemies off high ground vantage points. Any fall damage will count towards your weekly objective.

Additionally, Tony Stark’s hidden Lake House can be found just North of the Stark Industries POI.
