Disambig.png "Vault" redirects here. For The Vaults in Chapter 2, see Vaults.
The Vault Season X.png

Vault (or vaulted) is the term used to refer to weapons and items that were released and were later made unavailable to adjust the game's balance due to being overpowered, underused, being a limited-time item, to bring back a vaulted weapon, out of the meta, or having lots of glitches. Until Patch 11.0, most of the vaulted items could still be found in Playground. Vaulted weapons and items can return in an update or in future LTMs. The only known in-game version of the Vault was located under Loot Lake and was located in the In-Between, a bright room with a desk that holds vaulted weapons in large rectangular pillars, as shown in the Unvaulting. When the Drum Gun was still vaulted, it was stuck inside one of the pillars. When the pillar shattered, the weapon was sent back into the regular world, available to be found in chests, floor loot, and Vending Machines.

Sometimes a weapon won't be fully vaulted, but a certain rarity of it will be. Ex: Epic and Legendary Pistol, Uncommon and Rare Rocket Launcher, Common and Uncommon Bolt Action Sniper Rifle, Epic Rocket Launcher or have changed rarities, like the Pump Shotgun, Tactical Shotgun, Suppressed Pistol, Dual Pistols, Semi-Auto Sniper Rifle, Scoped Assault Rifle, and Heavy Assault Rifle.

Overview of All Weapons and Their Vaults

As Fortnite progresses, Epic decided to take some items out either to refresh the game or change the meta. This is a list of every weapon, item, vehicle, and trap that existed.


Please consider helping out and contributing to this list!


NOTE: This list will include weapons that are NOT vaulted. As such, this list will provide assumptions/theories as to why the weapon was not vaulted.

  • an "*" means that it was released only in Spy Games or is exclusive to an LTM
Weapon Number of times Vaulted Number of times Vaulted (Mythic and Exotic) Introduced Vaulted Reason Given
Assault Rifle 0 1 1.6 13.00 (Mythic only) The Assault Rifle has never been vaulted and possibly never will be because this is a mandatory item that Battle Royale must have within its lootpool. It is treated as an iconic weapon and is the main weapon in the Assault Weapon class


The Mythic Skye's Assault Rifle was vaulted because Chapter 2 Season 3 brought new Mythic items that were considered to be more "fair" to the gameplay. It can still be found in Arsenal.

Burst Assault Rifle 3 1 1.6 (Common,Uncommon,Rare)


4.2 (Epic,Legendary)

7.10 Content Update 3 (Common,Uncommon,Rare)


7.30 (Epic,Legendary)


14.00 (Mythic only)


15.00 (All versions)

The Chapter 1 Burst Assault Rifle was not too great at eliminating enemies unless a player had a high-tiered version of it. The lower-end versions were the first to be removed because they did not perform great in the current meta. Followed by the weak aim, the random bullet spread, and speed, this weapon was not at its highest peak.


Later, the higher-end versions were also removed later. This was a bit shocking since the FAMAS was considered as a practical weapon, but t may just be due to the chances of finding one.


The Chapter 2 Burst Assault Rifle was greatly improved and the Mythic Ocean's Burst Assault Rifle was vaulted because Chapter 2 Season 4 brought new Mythic items that were related to the Marvel theme.


All versions were yet again removed on the initial patch of Chapter 2 Season 5. This was quite confusing since this weapon was improved greatly and many players used this. It may possibly have something to do with this weapon having some advantages that the Assault Rifle did NOT have such as increased ADS zoom and compacted accuracy.

Tactical Shotgun 2 NA 1.6 (Uncommon,Rare,Epic)


3.3 (Common)


9.30 (Legendary)

14.00 (All versions) The Epic version did technically get removed once, but it was considered as a change of rarity rather than an actual vault.


The Tactical Shotgun was removed for the first time completely in Chapter 2 Season 4 because it was HEAVILY nerfed during the season prior. The headshot damage was drastically changed as well as its range and damage. It was at the point where it could not perform well against the Pump Shotgun.

Suppressed Submachine Gun 4 NA 1.6 (Common,Uncommon,Rare)


*12.20 (Epic)


*12.30 (Legendary)

5.40 (Common)


6.00 (Uncommon,Rare)


9.10 Content Update (All versions)


11.00 (All versions)

The Common Suppressed SMG was vaulted first because of the different rarity adjustments being made.


Later in Season 6, the other two versions were removed because they were considered to be overpowered in terms of DPS.


They were removed again because of the Burst SMG's debut, but shortly returned after.


It was finally vaulted in 11.00, but this was most likely due to having a simplified lootpool.

Machine Pistol (referred to as SMG back then) 1 NA 1.6 2.5 (All versions)


These are not confirmed currently:


10.00 (Solid Gold)


15.40 (Unvaulted)

The Submachine Gun was removed because of its low damage output, despite the weapon being buffed to higher damage yet again.


Twice this weapon reappeared as the Machine Pistol, both of which were in LTMs ONLY. When Solid Gold was in the playlist, many people saw the Common Machine Pistol being in there. It didn't last too long and was replaced by the Compact SMG shortly after.


Later, it appeared in Unvaulted with the Uncommon and Rare versions included. This sort of made sense since this was a nod to the old SMG. However, it got removed hours later.

Pistol
Revolver
Bolt-Action Sniper Rifle
Semi-Auto Sniper Rifle
Rocket Launcher
Grenade Launcher
Thermal Scoped Assault Rifle v4.4 Initial Patch of Season 9 The Thermal Scoped Rifle was the rarest weapon in the game with a 0.4% chance of dropping. It was only useful in Team Rumble, as it was more common to find them in Supply Drops. It was also vaulted to free up space.
Tactical Assault Rifle v9.01 v9.30 Content Update #1 (Rare) variant, v10.00 (Epic and Legendary) The Rare variant was first vaulted because it will help the class of Assault Rifles become more distributed, The remaining variants of the Tactical Assault Rifle was probably vaulted because there were many other Assault Rifle's in game or to do with the John Wick event being over. The Suppressed SMG could still be alternate to the Tactical AR.

Actual Reason from Epic Games when the Rare variant first got vaulted;

"With the unvaulting of the Suppressed Submachine Gun, we wanted to make sure loot distribution in this class of item was well distributed."

Submachine Gun (TEC 9 Variant)

Nicknamed the MP

Patch 1.6 (BR Launch) v2.5 The Machine Pistol was rotated out for the Tactical SMG's increase in fire rate and magazine size.
Burst SMG v9.10 v10.30 It was vaulted to bring back the Tactical SMG, And it was not used a lot.
Compact SMG v5.10 v9.01 and v13.20 1st time: Vaulted to reduce high-fire rate weapons and in favor of the New Tactical Assault Rifle and Unvaulting of Drum Gun.

2nd time: It had the same stats of the Epic & Legendary SMG.

Scoped Revolver v7.20 Initial Patch of Season 9 It was vaulted because users using a controller had a hard time with them, and to free up space.
Dual Pistols v4.5 v6.21 and v9.30 First Vault: To make room for new weapons or unvaulting

Final Vault: Not used a lot.

Damage trap Patch 1.6 (BR Launch) Initial patch of season 2 chapter 2 Vaulted to nerf box fighting and was a bit overpowered. Also as with the new ways to teleport around the map e.g: porta-potties, Epic thought people would just place traps there and at other valuable places e.g the vault too get free kills.
Zapotron v1.6.3 v1.6.4 Did not fit the meta and was too overpowered that the only clip was a headshot that caused 150 damage and not at the player.
Heavy Shotgun v3.3.1 v7.30 It was vaulted to free up space, and to lower the amount of shotguns in the game.
Quad Launcher v6.02 v7.20 Content Update It was vaulted due to it being really overpowered
Guided Missile v3.4 v6.21 and 7.30 (Playground and Creative) The Guided Missile was vaulted the first time because it was too overpowered. The second time it was vaulted because the weapon was rare to find in game, damages are worse than the Rocket Launcher and it was barely used.

It was also removed from Creative and Playground to enhance the performance and FPS.

Crossbow v2.4.2 Initial Patch of Season 4 Although it is a Suppressed weapon, it was extremely rare and less powerful than even the Semi-Auto Sniper Rifle or Suppressed Sniper Rifle.
SMG v5.00 Content Update v7.30 content update, 12.00 and 14.00 In the patch 7.30, the SMG was vaulted. In patch 11.00, it was unvaulted with Epic and Legendary variants.

In the pach 12.00, the Epic and Legendary variant were vaulted for being overpowered. In the patch 14.00, was vaulted for the unvaulting of the Tactical SMG and for being weak after it's damage and firerate nerf.

Smoke Grenade v1.9.1 v3.5 Vaulted due to lack of use by players and trolling their own teamates.
Impulse Grenade v2.5.0 v6.0 (First) v9.30 CU #1 (Second) The Impulse was vaulted in Season 6 to reduce mobility and was vaulted in Season 9 to switch competitive meta's and the unvaulting of the Shockwave Grenade.
Bolt-action sniper rifle v3.3 Patch v7.30 and initial patch of season 2 of chapter 2 The heavy sniper rifle and the suppresed siniper rifle were unvaulted
Boom Box v7.10 Content Update #2 v7.30 Content Update Was an annoying item and can destroy a freshly built fort very quickly.
Clinger v3.6 Initial Patches of Season 7 and 9 It was vaulted to bring back grenades and freshen the category of explosive weaponry.
Port-a-Fortress v5.41 7.20 Content Update This was vaulted due to not being used often, it made people not build, and it was pretty annoying overall.
Grappler v5.40 v7.20 Content Update It was vaulted due to just gaining high ground on someone in a matter of seconds, due to that item being extremely overpowered.
Balloons v6.21 Initial Patch of Season 9 They were vaulted because not many people used them and it was a pretty hated item in Battle Royale.
Shadow Stones v6.0 (Season 6) v7.0 (Season 7) Season theme
Rift-to-Go v5.30 v9.30 Content Update #1 Vaulted to reduce mobility and change up competitive fighting scenes
X-4 Stormwing v7.00 v8.00 It was the second most hated and overpowered vehicle in game.
Dynamite v6.30 Content Update v9.30 Dynamite was vaulted to reduce the amount of explosives that you can find in game.
The Baller v8.10 v10.00 It was vaulted to reduce mobility and was a annoying vehicle during competitive playlists as the player can hide in the baller during the final storm circle's.
Mounted Turret v6.30 v10.00 The Mounted Turret was vaulted probably because it was overpowered or it caused a lot off bugs letting you grant some advantages.
Flint-Knock Pistol v8.11 v10.00 Flint-Knock Pistol was vaulted to reduce mobility and utility uses.
Quadcrasher v6.10 v10.00 To reduce mobility.
Shadow Bomb v8.51 v10.00 To reduce mobility.
Semi-Auto Sniper Rifle v1.6 v6.21 First, v10.00 Second The first time the Semi-Auto Sniper Rifle was vaulted was that it wasn't a popular choice among other snipers and the second time it was vaulted because it was probably not picked up a lot again or it was out used by the Storm Scout Sniper Rifle as it was more rarer and was more powerful than the Semi-Auto Sniper Rifle
Air Strike v9.30 Content Update #3 v10.00 Was probably very annoying and very overpowered.
Gliders (item) v7.30 v10.00 (from regular playlists) Gliders were removed from all modes but the Team Rumble Mode - There's no official reason the item was removed.
Drum Gun v4.50

Content Update

1st: v5.40

2nd: v10.20

1st: Speculation of the weapon being overpowered or due to community complaint

2nd: Speculation of being removed due to not being as effective as other weapons in it's class or due to being too many assault rifles in game

Storm Flip v9.20 v10.20 It was probably not used a lot or it was unfair in late game circle's as players can camp in the Storm Flip healing up, while the other player is dying to the storm with no heals and Storm Flip.
Storm Scout Sniper Rifle v9.41 Content Update v10.20 It was probably vaulted because of the recent addition of the Automatic Sniper Rifle, or it was unfair in competitive game modes as players can plan if they want to build to the upcoming zone by looking at the map the sniper provides.
All Terrain Kart (ATK) v5.00 v8.00 It could have been that it was less used, or Lazy Links being removed from the map during Season 8.
Shopping Cart v4.30 v8.00 It was vaulted due to it being not used a lot in the game
Drum Shotgun v9.30 Content Update #2 v10.20.2 Hotfix The Drum Shotgun was very strong in close quarters combat but wasn't used a lot , so Epic added it to the Vault
Proximity Grenade Launcher v9.21 v10.20.2 Hotfix It was probably barely used due to how extremely rare it was to find it and was overpowered with the Heavy Sniper Rifle combo
Driftboard 7.40 content update v11.0 To reduce mobliity
B.R.U.T.E v10.00 v11.00 Limited to Season X Storyline and was the MOST HATED vehicle ever

Grenade launcher v1.6 v11.0 It was vaulted to free up space and not being used a lot
Heavy sniper rifie v5.21 v.11.0 and v13.0 1st time: It was vaulted to free up space,was op, and enemys can hear it and head to the location it was fired.
CommonBolt Action Sniper Rifle v11.0 v11.0 No reason was given for the vaulting of this weapon 24 hours into the season, community speculation was that it was under-performing and was thus removed.
Common Rocket Launcher v11.00 v11.00 No reason was given for the vaulting of this weapon 24 hours into the season, probably because it was too weak and useless.
Infantry rifle patch 7.40 v11.0 No reason has been provided for vaulting of this weapon - Community speculation was that the weapon was not being used in the lower rarities and the Epic and Legendary variants were overpowered
Suppressed Pistol 1.11 suppressed pistol update v11.0 It was vaulted to reduce items in game and for people to hear the enemy
Tactical SMG v1.6.3 v5.00

v11.0
