Vaults have returned to The Island in Fortnite Chapter 3, but you need multiple people present to unlock them. Here are a couple of clever tricks to open vaults while playing Solos in Fortnite.

Fortnite Chapter 3 is off to a tremendous start. Players can enjoy a brand new island with a completely revamped pool of weapons.

There’s also a mix of returning content from Chapters 1 and 2. Players can visit some of their favorite POIs from both chapters while enjoying some of Fortnite’s best mechanics.

Vaults are one of the many returning features in Chapter 3. However, they are quite different than they were in Chapter 2. You don’t need a card to unlock them, but you do need more than one person present to open them.

Unlocking Vaults with NPCs

You do have to have another person present to unlock the Fortnite Chapter 3 vaults. However, that doesn’t mean they have to be a player. One trick players have discovered is that you can use an NPC to unlock the vault.

There are plenty of NPCs wandering nearby each vault so you may be able to coax one into walking close enough to register on the scanner. An easier method would be finding an NPC you can hire that will willingly follow you to the vault.

Open Vaults with tamed animals

Wild animals have also returned to Fortnite Chapter 3, and players can also tame them. Both a tamed boar and wolf will work, you just need to get them close enough to the vault.

To tame an animal, you just need to get close enough to them while holding a piece of meat. Hold down the action button while they’re distracted and they will become your loyal ally.

This also means they will follow you around the map and even into vaults.

Using Chickens to open vaults

Perhaps the silliest but easiest method of opening a vault is by using a chicken. You can’t tame a chicken, and they won’t willingly follow you. However, you can pick them up.

Vaults aren’t specific as to what it considers another person. Luckily, this means it will accept a chicken as a second player. All you need to do is find a chicken, pick it up, and carry it to the vault.

If you’re wanting to switch up your diet in Fortnite, you can use the Pizza Party item to gain shield and fill your stomach.

One of Fortnite’s mascots is Tomatohead who is also the mascot for the fictional restaurant Pizza Pit. This is a POI that has appeared in Fortnite for several seasons.

It’s one of the many fictional restaurants that have appeared in-game along with Durrr Burger, Sitcks, and Butter Barn.

However, players haven’t been able to enjoy any of the food from these restaurants until now. Pizza Pit’s ovens are on and players can finally enjoy eight slices of cheesy goodness.

The Pizza Party is a pizza box containing eight slices of pizza. In addition to cheese and sauce, each slice is topped with a Shield Mushroom that restores 50 shield.

Each box has 8 slices, but each slice can only get players up to 50 shield similar to minis. Players can find Pizza Party boxes in the normal loot pool.

As well, players can purchase a Pizza Box for 50 gold from the Tomatohead NPC. He is located in Tilted Tower, and he only has 4 Pizza Boxes in stock.

According to Hypex, the Pizza Party box will be added to Fortnite on Tuesday, January 25.

For a measly 200 gold, players can pick up 1,600 shield. However, we don’t know how long it takes to eat a slice. And this would also require players to give up two item slots.

Like other Marvel skins, Green Goblin will likely cost the player 1,500 V-Bucks. He will probably come with a rideable glider and pickaxe.

Crafting and Upgrade Benches are still the main means of upgrading weapons. Here’s how to upgrade weapons in Fortnite Chapter 3.

Fortnite Chapter 3 introduces an entirely new map which means new Upgrade Bench locations. While players can’t run to NPCs and get cheap and instant upgrades, it’s still possible to power up your gear.

From Weapon Upgrade Benches to Vending Machines, players can spend hard-earned bars to bump their weapons up a level.

Whatever you choose, this guide will help you figure out how to upgrade weapons in Fortnite Chapter 3.

Upgrade Benches Fortnite Chapter 3

The quickest but most expensive way to upgrade weapons is by using Fortnite Upgrade Benches. The Upgrade Bench is also the most reliable way to upgrade weapons in Fortnite Chapter 3.

Using an upgrade bench instantly bumps up the rarity of a weapon, but it comes at a cost. Players will have to spend hundreds of bars each time they want to upgrade their weapons. However, you just can’t beat the power of an upgrade bench.

Here is how much each upgrade costs while using a Fortnite Upgrade Bench:

  • Common (grey) -> Uncommon (green) = 200 bars
  • Uncommon (green) -> Rare (blue) = 300 bars
  • Rare (blue) -> Epic (purple) = 400 bars
  • Epic (purple) -> Legendary (orange) = 500 bars

The Fortnite.gg map below shows all of the Fortnite Upgrade Bench locations. In Chapter 3, there are 18 different Upgrade Bench locations. No matter where the next Storm Circle is headed, there’s usually a Fortnite Upgrade Bench nearby.

Vending Machines in Fortnite Chapter 3

The second way to “upgrade” weapons is by purchasing a better one from a Vending Machine. These are a much cheaper alternative to upgrading weapons, however, they aren’t as reliable.

This is because players won’t know what weapons a vending machine carries until they get to them. However, they can carry any rarity of weapons from Uncommon (green) to Legendary (gold).

Weapons from a Vending Machine cost 50 Gold Bars. This is a massive discount compared to the 300 bars it takes to upgrade a weapon from green to blue.

Below is a map that shows all of the Vending Machine Locations in Fortnite Chapter 3.

Chapter 3 has removed crafting, sidegrading, and sideways weapons. So while there aren’t as many upgrade methods as before, these methods are far more reliable.
