"Fortnite Battle Royale" developer Epic Games has found a unique way to remove certain weapons from the game. The video game creator has created the Vault, where removed weapons are stored, and any vaulted weapon has a chance to return to the game at any point. Some weapons, such as the Suppressed Submachine Gun, have been re-added to the game, while some of them could permanently stay in the Vault.

It turns out that "Fortnite Battle Royale" players will soon be able to choose which weapon to bring back to the game from the Vault! Epic Games is preparing another big game event that will make huge changes to the game, and one of these changes will affect weapons players can use. These changes will happen before the start of Season 9, and it appears that players will be able to witness this event live in the game.

The Vault event

Epic Games is preparing at least two big events that will happen at the end of Season 8. At the moment, it is unknown if these two events will happen at the same time, but both will change the game. One event will include the volcano, which will erupt and destroy several areas on the island. The other event will be about Loot Lake and the vault that is located in the center of it.

Loot Lake has gone through numerous changes in the last few seasons.

It was also where the "Butterfly" event happened. It seems that Epic Games is not done with it yet. A few weeks ago, the Vault appeared in the center of the lake, and this turned out to be the same Vault the game developer uses to store removed weapons in. The Vault was just symbolic, but it was brought to the game, and players will be able to interact with it.

There will be six vaulted items during the event.

They are the X-4 Stormwing plane, Grappler, Tactical Submachine Gun, Bounce Pad, Infinity Blade, and Drum Gun. Data miner Lucas7yoshi revealed that there will be a voting system for these items, and the item with the most votes will most likely be added back to the game. Considering that a lot of players want the Drum Gun to be added back to the game, I won't be surprised if we get this weapon back within the next two weeks.

The volcano event

As it has already been leaked, the volcano will erupt and destroy several areas on the island. According to data miners, Tilted Towers and Retail Row will be among the areas destroyed by the eruption, which will be interesting to see.

Tilted Towers is the most popular landing spot in the game and it has been out since the v2.0 patch. If Epic Games removes it, there is no doubt that landing spots will be much more balanced.

However, a lot of players will be unhappy to see this area go, so we could expect another big point of interest in Season 9.
