How to open a Lock with a Key, and a Safe in a single Fortnite match

Opening a lock with a key and a safe in a single game is one of the weekly challenges in Chapter 3 Season 4 of Fortnite.

This can be tricky if you don’t know where to look, especially since safes are often hidden in Fortnite.

Completing this challenge will reward you with 20k XP, which will help you unlock more skins for the Battle Pass.

Please note that this particular challenge can no longer be completed. What’s new? Chapter 4 Season 2 has arrived! New additions include Grind Rails and Kinetic Blades, along with the new Battle Pass, character collection, and Eren Jaeger skin. It’s a good idea to know how to get XP quickly in Fortnite.

How to open a lock with a key in Fortnite

To open a Lock with Key in Fortnite you have two main options. The first is to look for locked weapon boxes. These are marked on the map after collecting a key and are always marked with a single lock. For reference, they are always found in Tilted Towers. You can use keys on these locks to complete the first requirement of the challenge.

The second (and recommended) way is to unlock a Vault, either a one-key or two-key Vault found on the map. To do this, land anywhere on the map and look for a key. Keys can be found anywhere as ground loot or in chests. Now for the method we will use to complete the challenge, you will want to find two keys if possible.

Vault locations.

Once you’ve collected at least one key, you’ll find the vault locations marked on your map. You can also use the map embedded above to locate the nearest Vault. Keep in mind that some vaults require two keys, and since these also often contain safes, that’s what you’ll want to aim for.

Once in a vault, unlock it using your keys. This will fulfill the first part of the challenge.

Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 4 is here! To help you get started with this heist-themed season, we have guides on how to alert a security camera, protect data from Forecast Towers, and destroy weakened security walls or doors. There’s also a new Victory Umbrella! In the meantime, learn what the best weapons are, the current boosts, how to get XP quickly, how to use the best PC builds, and earn a crown of victory.

How to find and unlock a safe

Safes can be hidden all over the map, so finding them can be difficult. Fortunately, most of the two key vaults have them locked inside. This is the recommended place to find safes for now.

Once you’ve found one, simply interact with it and wait for the animation to complete. You will receive a good amount of gold for your troubles. Unlocking a safe will complete the “open a lock with a key and then a safe in a single game” challenge. You will receive 20,000 XP as a reward.
