The Fortnite “Unvaulting event” has been leaked and it’ll be happening very soon. This event will seemingly allow players to vote on a vaulted item from a past season to bring back, either temporarily or permanently.
The Unvaulting event was leaked via well-known Fortnite data miner ShiinaBR. A line of code inside the game is called “Unvaulting countdown” and is counting down until May 4, according to the leak. The countdown is tagged as an event and began on May 1. It’ll end this Saturday at 2pm CT.
At that time, all players inside the game will likely be transported to see the Fortnite vault for the very first time. Another well-known leaker Lucas7yoshi claims that a countdown will actually show up on the island soon for this event. The countdown will look holographic, similar to the one featured in the Food Fight LTM.
The Unvaulting event will likely have players vote on a vaulted item to return to the game. There are six monitors in Loot Lake that have been lighting up one at a time, showing six different vaulted items. These include the Stormwing plane, Grappler, Bouncer, and more. These are likely the six choices players will be voting on.
That’s far from the only hint, too. There’s a strange hatch at Loot Lake with five locks on it. Each lock opens when a rune appears on the map and players activate it through working together. All five runes have appeared on the map, but the fifth is the only one left to be activated.
