How To Open Apex Legends Vaults And Find Keys

How to get vault keys, where to find the vaults, and what kind of loot is inside.

Comments

Apex Legends Season 3 introduces a new map, World's Edge, which hides three locked vaults--each of which contains purple epic- and golden legendary-tier loot. Though closed at the start of the season, the vaults are now open. You just need a key. Below, we detail how to find a vault key and explain what you can expect to find once you open one of the three loot staches.

We have Apex Legends Season 3 covered from several different angles. If you haven't jumped into the game yet or are a lapsed player, read about why now is a good time to jump into Apex Legends. We also have a rundown of everything new that comes with this new season and a breakdown of the new map (including a spicy guide on where to drop).

How To Get A Key

The first thing you'll need to do is find a floating cargo bot, of which there are several roaming around the map; these can contain vault keys. The ones that do hold a vault key appear to have one of its glowing panels flashing red as the rest of the bot continues cycling through the different loot tier colors. We're not privy to the chances of coming across these specific cargo bots since it seems random between each match.

When you find the cargo bot, shoot it down, loot its contents, and you should have a vault key. The three vault locations then get marked on your map, all of which are within tunnels.

How To Open The Vault And What's Inside

When you make it to a vault, it'll take three seconds to get the door open and you'll be rewarded with several purple-tier and gold-tier items. The gear you can pick up includes purple and gold backpacks, knockdown shields, body shields, helmets, and a few weapon attachments or phoenix kits. There doesn't appear to be weapons or ammo within these vaults, however. You can check out screenshots from our experience below:
