Fortnite Vault: Vaulted items, Bolt-Action Sniper, Burst Rifle, SMG, Heavy Shotgun

Featured post A six shooter, which has recently been vaulted.

In yet another quick fix to Fortnite, Patch 7.30 adds a few more weapons to the Vault, namely the Bolt-Action Sniper, Heavy Shotgun, Burst Rifle, and the SMG. It also takes the suppressed SMG out of the vault. It can be confusing as to what’s currently available, so here is a list all of the Vaulted items, reasons why they were vaulted if there were any, and when they were patched out of the game.

With the game being the global sensation that it is, there’s a lot to learn about not only getting that all-important “Victory Royale”, but also the changes to the map as the seasons progress, and the challenges you can seek to complete. Head over to ourĀ Fortnite guide hub for every single thing you need to get started.

Fortnite full Vaulted items list

Without further ado, here is the full vaulted items list. It comprises of a lot of weapons over the past few seasons, with some being vaulted due to their overpowered nature, while others just weren’t used enough. The ones that are there that have no reason for being vaulted however should be kept an eye on, as these ones could make a comeback in the main game at some point, as has happened in the past with at least a couple of weapons. Below then are all the items currently vaulted:
