Fortnite is known for changing up the battle royale each season, introducing new mechanics, and changing the loot pool to keep players on their toes. This also leaves many fans worrying ahead of the release of every season whether their favorite weapons have been vaulted or unvaulted. Thankfully, data miners like HYPEX on Twitter have given players a heads-up to mentally prepare them ahead of release.
Players will be able to hop into the battle royale and see the weapons for themselves sometime around 4 am PT on June 9. Until then we’ve got all the details on the vaulted and unvaulted weapons as part of Fortnite Chapter Four, season three.
Loot changes in Fortnite Chapter 4, Season 3
These only apply to items that are already in the game, with the full extent of new weapons added to Fortnite Chapter Four, season three being unconfirmed until most of the season releases. That being said, HYPEX was willing to share the upcoming vaulted and unvaulted weapons in Fortnite.
What was vaulted in Chapter 4, Season 3?
There are several items being vaulted at the start of Chapter Four, season three, and many players are likely to be disappointed by at least one of them. The vaulted items include:
- Heisted Explosive Assault Rifle
- Overclocked Pulse Rifle
- Auto Aim Pistol
- Twin Mag SMG
- Normal DMR
- Chug Splashes
- Shield Bubbles
- Shield Keg
- Combat Shotgun
- Mythic Enhanced Havoc Shotgun
- Dragon’s Breath Sniper
Just because something was vaulted doesn’t mean that it can’t come back later in the season, as Epic Games has been known to do.
What was unvaulted in Chapter 4, Season 3?
A few items have also been taken out of the vault for this season and that’s not even counting the new items as well. These weapons include:
- Thermal Floppers
- Exotic Tracker Pistol
- Combat SMG
- Drum Shotgun (Including Mythic version)
All of these changes are making it look like Fortnite and the Wilds of this new jungle were meant for one another.
