Fortnite season 4 week 7 challenge guide: Entering the vault in Doom’s Domain

While Fortnite‘s season 4 week 7 challenge for entering the vault in Doom’s Domain is no walk in the park, it’s certainly easier than many of this season’s challenges that involve defeating mini-bosses like Iron Man or Wolverine. To gain access to the vault in Doom’s Domain, you’ll need to get through Doctor Doom himself, first. That can be a tough feat to overcome, but we’ll walk you through every step of the way in this handy guide — including tips and tricks to make it as easy as possible for you.

Here’s how to enter the vault in Doom’s Domain in Fortnite.

Before you can enter the vault in Doom’s Domain, you must get your hands on Doctor Doom’s keycard. As you’d expect, you can find the keycard by defeating Doctor Doom. This can be tricky because he tends to spawn in random locations. However, as we covered in the guide for eliminating Doctor Doom three times during season 4 week 1, he tends to spawn in the underground helipad beneath the soccer field towards the southern portion of Doom’s Domain. If he’s not there, he’ll almost always be found in the large mansion to the north on one of the upper floors.

To start, we recommend to land somewhere close to the soccer field in Doom’s Domain. As you hover overhead, try to get a peek to see if Doctor Doom is there. If he is, take a mental note and go find a few weapons quickly. If not, make a dash towards the mansion to the north. Assuming he’s at the underground soccer field and you have your weapons, try and take him out from afar. If you only have close-quarters weapons like a shotgun or handgun, see if you can find something with a bit more range like an assault rifle.

It’s best if you have your team help you take Doctor Doom down, as he’s quite tough. You can definitely eliminate him yourself, but the more teammates you have to help, the better. Once he’s down, run over to his body and there will be a keycard you can pick up. Make sure your team gets this before anyone else or you’ll have to down the enemy that grabs it to get the keycard back. Alternatively, if someone else opens it, you can get credit for entering even if you don’t down Doctor Doom or open the vault yourself, but you shouldn’t count on this happening.

The final tip we have is to disguise yourself as Doctor Doom’s henchmen by jumping into the telephone booth close to the statue in the middle of Doom’s Domain. This will help you get the jump on Doctor Doom, which will make it easier to take him down and grab the keycard.

Entering the vault

Once you’ve taken Doctor Doom down, run over to the loot he drops and grab the keycard. The vault is located in the underground helipad area beneath the soccer field on the south side. You’ll likely have to take out many of Doctor Doom’s henchmen to get inside safely. There’s a card reader on the left side of the vault’s door, so swipe the keycard and give it a few seconds to open. Once the door is open, run inside and you’ll find a ton of loot and you’ll gain credit for completing the challenge, along with 25,000 XP.

You’ll notice in the video above, everything went as well as it possibly could have. We managed to get a decent weapon, Doctor Doom happened to spawn right by the vault, no other teams were there to distract us, and we managed to get inside the vault with no issues. Typically, things won’t go this smoothly — particularly because other teams will likely be attempting to get inside the vault themselves.

If this happens, it isn’t the end of the world, as you can gain credit for entering the vault even if someone else opens it — but where’s the fun in that?! If you’re having issues, we recommend for you to give it another try, as the path of the bus and the location of the circle can dictate how busy an area will be. Always coordinate with your team if possible, and if all else fails, wait for someone else to open the vault for you and quickly run inside to reap the rewards (if there are any left).

Where to find the secret cave in Fortnite
A player drives a motorcycle through Reckless Railways in Fortnite.

Every time Fortnite changes up the map, it becomes a whole new experience when checking out the new points of interest (POIs) and best places to land. With chapter 5 bringing some of the most dramatic changes in the map's history, a ton of secrets are out there on the island waiting to be discovered, such as a very lucrative cave. Those who have managed to wander into this hidden alcove have been rewarded with a huge stash of loot, making it a well-guarded secret among those in the know. We can't guarantee you'll survive long enough to grab all the valuables inside, but knowing where the secret cave is will at least give you and your squad a fighting chance.

The secret cave is tucked along the eastern coast of the map to the northeast of Hazeyhills and southeast of Grand Glacier as seen on the map above.

Fortnite Reality Augments: full list and how to use them
Fortnite Zero Builds key art.

Every new chapter of Fortnite is a massive event. While seasonal changes bring plenty of minor tweaks and additions, it's almost always when a new chapter rolls around that major overhauls or new mechanics are introduced. Fortnite Chapter 4 was no exception, and aside from the extreme changes the island underwent, it brought one very important change to gameplay that makes a huge difference when going for that elusive victory royal (it isn't easy to win Fortnite, after all).

Augments, well, augment the game. There are a few challenges that somewhat introduce what these are, but they leave out almost all the important details for you to find out on your own. Augments need to be considered, and deeply understood, not only for when you get them yourself but to know what new tricks your opponents could have up their sleeves. Before you get taken by surprise, here's a complete breakdown of how to unlock augments and how they work in Fortnite.
What are augments in Fortnite?
Augments, or Reality Augments, are a new perk system introduced into Fortnite. There are currently 20 augments in the game, but there are 32 total that cycle in and out with each Season. You can get access to multiple augments during a single match, but augments do not carry over after a match is finished, whether you win or lose. These perks can range from modifying certain weapon types to granting buffs for performing actions, and much more. There are no bad augments, so you will want to get as many as possible. Augments also have their own tab in your menu where you can see which ones you've had so far to track your progress using them all.
