Covert Cavern is a brand-new Fortnite POI that arrived in Chapter 3’s 19.20 update, but you’ll need a keycard to access the Vault inside. Here’s how to get the keycard, and where to find the vault.

Epic Games are doing everything they can to keep Fortnite fresh and interesting in Chapter 3, with February 1’s 19.20 update bringing even more content to the game. This update brought back the Heavy Shotgun, introduced unlockable masks for Haven, and added a brand-new POI – Covert Cavern.

This new POI includes a secret vault that’s full of high-tier loot, so here’s where to find it and how to get the keycard to open it.

The Covert Cavern POI and its vault are located between Logjam Lumberyard and Camp Cuddle, where the river goes underneath the mountain.

The vault is inside the base itself, where you’ll need to head towards the main structure inside. You’ll reach some steel shutters that are halfway down, so go underneath the shutters, through the door, and you’ll find the vault at the bottom of the stairs.

Luckily, the keycard you use to open the vault will mark the door on your HUD and give you directions towards it.

You can get your hands on Fortnite’s Covert Cavern keycard by defeating the Gunnar NPC inside, who’ll drop it after he’s defeated.

Here’s everything you need to do to get the keycard and open the vault:

  1. Land in the Covert Cavern POI
  2. Head inside the base until you find Gunnar
  3. Fight and defeat Gunnar
  4. Pick up the Legendary Covert Cavern keycard
  5. Follow the directional arrows to the vault
  6. Use the keycard at the terminal
  7. Collect all the high-tier loot inside

Opening the vault isn’t too difficult, but be wary of other players lurking around Covert Cavern, as the area will be especially busy during the first few days after the update.

Gunnar is a powerful foe, so we recommend keeping your distance and using cover so he doesn’t deal too much damage to you.

Just keep your distance and either build or use some natural cover so you can keep taking potshots at him. Just aim for the head, and he should go down fairly quickly. Then, you can pick up his Mythic Stinger SMG and use the keycard he drops to access the vault.

You can find a ton of high-tier loot inside the Covert Cavern vault, including ground loot, Ammo Crates, Supply Drops, and IO Chests.

IO Chests are needed to complete certain challenges, so there’s all the more reason to enter the Covert Cavern vault.

Fortnite Chapter 3, Season 2 is drawing to a close and one of the highlights of a new season is the live event. Here’s everything we know about the Fortnite Chapter 3, Season 2 Collision live event.

Fortnite is known for its incredible crossovers and live events as much as its gameplay. These events feature unique playlists that have players join to watch the event together, and they’re usually used to usher in the next season or Chapter.

Players were disappointed when Chapter 3’s first season didn’t include one of these live events, but the good news is that Chapter 3, Season 2 will feature a live finale to kick off Season 3.

When is Fortnite Chapter 3, Season 2’s live event finale?

Epic Games have officially confirmed that the Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 2 live event is titled ‘Collision,’ and will go live on June 4 at 1 PM PT / 4 PM ET / 9 PM BST.

Players can see exactly how far away from the June 4 event they are by using the countdown timer in the pre-game lobby.

You can take part in the action by logging into the game on the day of the live event finale. In their announcement, Epic Games confirmed that the Collision playlist will become available 30 minutes before the live event starts.

The developers made it clear that if you want to play in this event then you’ll have to join a Squad of four players. If you don’t already have a full Squad then your group will automatically be filled with other players.

Players that log in to Fortnite on June 4 at 8 AM ET will be awarded an exclusive loading screen and lobby track.

What will be in the Fortnite Chapter 3, Season 2 live event finale?

While Epic Games haven’t revealed many details about what will happen in this live event finale, the name implies that it involves The Collider doomsday device in the middle of the map.

We might see the device become active and start causing massive changes to the island. While all of this is happening, you and your teammates may have to battle the IO forces across the map.

A tweet from the Fortnite developers has teased the return of Mecha Team Leader from Chapter 1, Season 9, and it’s possible that they will help you bring down the Imagined Order.

Fortnite Chapter 3, Season 2 live event leaks

While we’re waiting for more details about the Collision live event finally to be officially revealed, data miners may have uncovered more information about the Chapter 3, Season 2 finale.

Leaker ‘FNBRintel’ discovered a ton of strings for the event, including a way for streamers to use DMCA-free music during it.

New skins for Paradigm and Jonesy have also been found in the patch notes, and Shiina believes they’ll have a part to play in the live event finale. They also leaked that there will be “multiple cosmetics available for the event.”

These skins were first leaked shortly after the arrival of the Fortnite 20.40 update patch, and we might finally see them make an appearance when the Collision live event finale goes live.

Fortnite Intel claimed in a tweet that once the event concludes, there will be “an extended downtime,” with a “waiting screen similar to previous events.” It has not been confirmed exactly how long the downtime will last.

Fortnite Season 3 Battle Pass leak reveals Darth Vader and Indiana Jones skins

A Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3 leak appears to have revealed that Darth Vader and Indiana Jones skins will feature on the new Battle Pass.

Published

Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3 is almost here, and a major leak has allegedly revealed some of the new crossover skins fans can expect, including Star Wars’ Darth Vader and Indiana Jones.

With Season 2 nearing its conclusion, attention is beginning to turn to Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3 and what’s in store. One of the most exciting parts of any new season is seeing which new crossovers Epic has up its sleeve, after Obi-Wan Kenobi and even Wu-Tang Clan in Season 2.

Each new era comes with a new Battle Pass stuffed with plenty of skins to unlock, and Chapter 3 Season 3’s appear to have leaked ahead of time.

If the leak is to be believed, some beloved characters from classic films are set to finally make their debut in Fortnite.

In a May 25 tweet, respected Fortnite leaker ShiinaBR shared an image that seemed to suggest that Darth Vader and Indiana Jones are set to headline Chapter 3 Season 3.

The Battle Pass section pictured the iconic Star Wars villain alongside an original Fortnite skin, likely indicating that Vader will be the Level 100 unlock in the new season.

Indiana Jones, featuring the likeness of actor Harrison Ford, is also depicted on the “Coming Soon” tile. This could hint that the legendary archaeologist is the new secret skin, much like Marvel’s Prowler in Season 2.

The image came from 4chan, but the leaker claimed the chances of it being a fake mock-up were “extremely low.”

Rumors of Darth Vader coming to Fortnite as a skin have been swirling for some time, as plenty of other Star Wars characters like Rey, Kylo Ren, and The Mandalorian have all joined the battle royale in the past.

With the much-anticipated Obi-Wan series, which is set to see Hayden Christensen return as the disgraced Anakin Skywalker, releasing shortly before Season 3 gets underway, it wouldn’t be a surprise if Epic felt now was the right time.

Of course, this is all just speculation until the trailer for Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3 drops and the Battle Pass is revealed.

  1. Head to Sanctuary on the Fortnite map
  2. Visit one of the three Loudspeaker locations
  3. Hold the interact button when the prompt to override the Loudspeaker appears
