Epic Games has recently introduced the Vault for "Fortnite Battle Royale." Basically, the Vault is used for storing the weapons removed from the popular game, and the first weapon to be added to it was a regular submachine gun. Now, the developer is planning to add another item to the Vault, and this time it won't be a gun but a non-lethal item that is often ignored by players.

Next week, "Fortnite Battle Royale" will get patch 3.3 which will bring some new things and expand the Vault. The game developer released another developer update for the game mode, revealing the plans for the upcoming update.

One of the things they revealed was that smoke grenades will be put into the Vault as many players don't use them. The update will also get llamas, as well as some bug fixes!

The Vault addition

"Fortnite Battle Royale" did not have smoke grenades in its original version as they were added in late November last year. These grenades are uncommon and players get five of them in each stack. However, they haven't been used much and many players ignored them, not wanting to fill an inventory space with something that's not very useful.

One of the biggest problems with smoke grenades is that players didn't have much benefit from them. Many "Fortnite Battle Royale" players would use them only to escape from their enemies as they were quite useless in combat.

Fortunately, it appears that the game developer is willing to rework these grenades and release them back in the game.

"We looked at our internal feedback as well as analytics, and we found that they're just not being used quite as much as we wanted them to. So we're going to be taking them out of the loot, putting them in the Vault, right alongside the SMG, and potentially reworking them and introducing them when we feel it's ready," said systems designer Eric Williamson.

Llamas in Battle Royale

"Fortnite's" PvE mode, Save the World, is using llamas as loot boxes, but they will be added to Battle Royale in a different way. According to Williamson, llamas will appear randomly over the island and players will be able to interact with them. The systems designer compared it to the interaction with loot chests and ammo cans, but he hasn't revealed more details.

Considering that llamas are used for loot in the PvE mode, it won't be surprising if players get loot after destroying them in the PvP mode. Many players are hoping that llamas will be better than chests and that they won't contain any common-rarity items.
