Loot Lake Vault may make a sudden appearance in Fortnite again.

Reddit user koooooomar has discovered the screens at The Shark and The Rig seem to be displaying an image of the Loot Lake Vault. The images were blurry before, but have come in to focus.

Since the Season X event concluded, the entire island was sucked up and a new reality took its place. While there have been some evidence of Chapter 1 within Chapter 2, this is the first time any character or lore is actively seeking information from Chapter 1. The Vault is where the retired "vaulted" weapons go, so someone from Shadow or Ghost could be looking into accessing it.

The original Vault was stationed in the center of Loot Lake. In Chapter 2, The Agency sits in the center of the lake. There must be some connection, as gold vault hatches have appeared in the water recently.

What is it that Ghost and Shadow looking for? We'll have to wait and see as this plot develops.
