Fortnite Vault List (Season 8) – Currently Removed Items List!

To help control the flow of the game, Epic will periodically vault weapons and items in Fortnite. Either the item was obsolete, served its purpose, doesn't fit thematically with the season, or no longer fits in the game. In our list below, we have sorted the vault list by Season.

Hey, my name is Mark, and I'm a video game enthusiast! My earliest memory was playing Worms on the Amiga against my Godmother, yes the Amiga, massive box type thing, needed eighty-five thousand floppy disks to play one game, maybe a slight exaggeration. Ah, those were the days! I love RPG’s, and The Legend of Zelda series. Dogs are pretty awesome.

  1. Seems like you forgot to update the list, so I made my own.

    Pump Shotguns

    Not all, but the following exotics
    – Nighthawk
    – Storm Scout
    – Boom Sniper
    – Big Chill
    – Dargon’s Breath Sniper
    – Burst Quad Launcher
    Mandolorian Sniper and Jetpack
    All Shotguns from season 5 (Tactical, Charge, Lever and Dragon)
    Heavy AR
    Tactical AR
    Silenced SMG
    Rapid Fire SMG
    Bolt Action & Lever Action Sniper
    Chug Splash
    Bounce Pads
    Loot Sharks
    Snow Flopper
    Rift Fish
    Zero Fish
    Thermal Fish

    1. That’s because we have a Season 6 article 🙂 But thank you all the same! We appreciate it!

  2. For some reason it says baloons have been unvaulted but thatvwas only for thegregf tournament which has baloons.

    1. I’m sure they were unvaulted in v15.10

  3. ummmmm… don’t know if it counts but there is the mythic jetpack is in the game. (=

  4. a couple things.
    1: last seasons mythics arent shown as vaulted
    2: there are some exotics this season that you can get from certain npc’s and ill list them
    2a: storm scout
    2b: scoped revolver
    2c: silenced pistol
    i believe thats it.

    1. If you mean superpowers, I’m not adding those.

    2. The scoped revolver was also changed to the “Night Hawk” so you can count it as a new weapon if you’d like.

  5. The list is not complete yet. You forgot some vaulted and unvaulted weapons.

    More vaulted weapons are Burst ARs (Famas and AUG), Stark Rifles, Tactical SMGs and Revolvers. Other things that were vaulted are Choppas and the Upgrade Benches.

    The only unvaulted weapon you forgot to include are the Epic and Legendary semi-auto pistols. The regular Double Barrel Shotgun wasn’t unvaulted, it just got a new exotic variant in the game called ‘The Dub’, and you can find it from one of the character NPCs.

    1. Made the fixes, thanks.

  6. Why is the combat shotgun under “explosives and throwables” category?

    1. Fixed, thanks.

  7. I thought that I saw crossbows during Fortnitemares.

    1. I mean they might have been available during an event, that doesn’t really matter in terms of the vault.

  8. The mythic goldfish isn’t vaulted or not anymore. Tabor Hill uploaded a video of him completing in the $1,000,000 Super Cup Tournament yesterday and he got eliminated by someone who had the mythic goldfish in their inventory.

    1. Fixed, thanks.

      1. You’re welcome. Also, the Chug Jug was vaulted in the v11.00 update but isn’t under the vaulted consumables & miscellaneous section.

        1. Added, thanks.

  9. hi evident do you like the charged shotgun pump shotgun more

    1. I like the pump way more, never been a fan of charged. What do you like?

  10. YYYY the hand cannon T_T

  11. Has the rocket launchers been vaulted ???
    I’ve killed about a 10 Gorgers today and not one had a rocket launcher 🤔

    1. Seems like they must have.

  12. Not sure if you consider it buried treasure but there are chests buried in the sand at sweaty sands. Look the the mounds in the sand. Been there since C2S1

    1. I’m not sure what that has to do with this post?

      1. I think he’s referring to the buried treasure that was vaulted back in Season 8 where you needed the map to find it, but confusing it with a normal chest that can be found in the beach on Sweaty Sands. LTROYFOLKER: those are not the buried treasure he’s talking about.

  13. The uncommon and rare scoped ar got vaulted.

    1. Not trying to be picky but only the epic lmg has been unvaulted.

      1. You can only find the rare rarity of the LMG from henchmen chests so, it’s less common to see in games compared to the epic rarity of the LMG.

      2. I changed it to say epic LMG, but I’m not going to add all the other rarities to the vault list.

  14. So, I am not sure if this 100% true, but Fortnite vaulted Boogie Bombs and Port-a-forts. Fortnite also reduced the amount of Crash Pads you can have in competitive playlists. Here is where I found the information from
    If this isn’t true or you find Boogie Bombs or Port-a-forts at all, please let me know because I do not like sharing false information.

    1. The following weapons and Items I predict of what should be vaulted and unvaulted for chapter 2 season 5

      • Revolver (Epic and Legendary)
      • Scoped Assault Rifle (Epic and Legendary)
      • LMG (all rarities)
      • Combat Shotgun (all rarities)
      • Tactical Submachine Gun (all rarities)
      • RPG (Legendary)
      • Boogie Bomb
      • All mythics (Ironman’s Repulers and Unibeam, Venom’s Smash ‘n’ Grab, Groot’s Bramble Shield, and Doom’s Mystical Bomb and Arcane Gauntlets)

      • Tactical Shotgun (all rarities)
      • Submachine Gun (Common, Uncommon and Rare) should now be side graded into Suppressed Submachine Gun
      • Pistol (Epic and Legendary)
      • Suppressed Pistol (all rarities) should now be side graded into Pistol

      New Items
      • Slurp Bazooka (Legendary)
      • Fire Extinguisher (Common)

    2. Those were vaulted only in competitive, not regular modes.

  15. Shouldn’t Skye’s Assault Rifle and Grappler be vaulted in the 13.00 patch notes? It says they were vaulted in the 14.00 patch notes.

    1. Man, you really know how to find all my mistakes! Fixed, thanks.

  16. In the vaulted guns list, it still says that the LMG is still vaulted…

    1. Fixed, thanks.

  17. thank god marauders were vaulted they have crazy aimbot

  18. R.I.P the tactical shotgun we will miss you!

  19. i think the mythic items from season 2/3 should be listed.

    1. Added now, thanks.

  20. I’m sorry but the marauders have been vaulted in a way

    1. This is for items, I don’t think Marauders need to be added.

  21. I don’t know if this is considered vaulted, but the Upgrade Bench that you can carry is no longer available

    1. That counts, I’ve added it now. Thanks.

  22. Port a Fort is unvaulted

    1. Added, thanks.

  23. The legendary version of the Tac SMG is unvaulted and u forgot the Bandage Zooka

    1. Both added now, thanks.

  24. light machine gun is unvaulted

    1. Added, thanks.

  25. The awesome combat shotgun was unvaulted in v14.00. SypherPK got one in a video he uploaded about the new season.

    1. Added, thanks.

  26. combat shotgun is also unvalted

    1. Fixed, thanks.

  27. The Bandage Bazooka and Creepin’ Cardboard boxes were vaulted in patch 13.0

    1. I added the creepin’ cardboard, but I’ve seen people say they’ve found bandage bazookas in the game. I’m not sure if it’s vaulted or not.

      1. I’m pretty sure bandage bazookas are vaulted for 2 reasons:

        -a rocket launcher appears for the lasz wrap slot instead of the bandaze bazooka

        -last seasons they were almost in every supply drop/epic chest and now there are none

        1. I think you’re right, I couldn’t find any proof of anyone finding one. I’ve added it to the vault list.

  28. you forgot the proximity grenade which was vaulted in patch 13.0.0

    1. Added, thanks.

  29. Not to be a perfectionist, but wasn’t the infinity gauntlet the first mythic weapon.

    1. Were they in an LTM or regular game? If they were LTM, I don’t know if they really count.

  30. they took away the overpowered pump than replaced it with the insane combat like come on epic
