After you come across one of these vaults, you won’t be able to open them on your own. You’ll need to visit them while playing in Duos, Trios, or Squads. Your teammates will then help you open the group lock.

It’s worth keeping in mind that unlocking a Vault will create noise that might attract nearby enemies. So, we recommend staying prepared for a battle with some powerful weapons and gear.
