Fortnite – How to Open a Safe

Vault locations in Fortnite at a glance

On the new Fortnite Chapter 3 map, you’ll be able to find seven safes – the map below shows their locations at a glance.

The locations of safes on the Fortnite map.

One of the season quests is to open a safe with another player and, in addition to the 25,000 XP you’ll earn, this will count towards your season bonus objectives. Working through these will earn you additional XP for the current Battle Pass.

In the section below you will learn how to open a safe and in the following we will explain exactly where safes are located.

As for the locations of the chests, it’s important to note that they’re actually hidden in all seven outposts, but since these aren’t marked on the map, we’ve organized the chests according to nearest named location.

Each Seven Outpost contains NPCs, but they will only attack you if you attack them. They sigh a lot though.


The release time for The Foundation skin is fast approaching! Once that’s done, there’s still plenty to do before the season ends, including earning Victory Crowns, completing your character collection, and that all-important Victory Umbrella. What’s new? Now you can swipe, browse the web, find device locations, and open safes.




How to Open a Safe in Fortnite

To open a safe in Fortnite, you need another player who doesn’t want to kill you. This is a fairly easy feat to complete in Duos, Trios, or Squad mode, as your teammates can help you out.

Meanwhile, in Solo Mode, you’ll need to recruit an NPC, like Agent Jonesy, to fight alongside you. This will require gold, but luckily it’s easy to earn by opening chests, killing enemy players, and other activities.

No matter how you get your teammates, you need to head to the safe’s location, and once there, you both need to stand in its scanner. The safe will then begin to open when it detects two people standing in front of it. It will take a few seconds, so don’t let your guard down!
