The Authority Keycard was a Keycard in Fortnite: Battle Royale. It was introduced in Chapter 2: Season 3 and obtained by eliminating Jules at The Authority.


The Authority keycard was used to open the Vault situated at The Authority. Simply having the keycard in the inventory when interacting with the vault would open it.

The Keycard takes up a slot in the Player's inventory. If held, it pings the location of the vault with a three dimensional arrow in front of the player, every few seconds.


The Authority keycard could only be obtained by eliminating Jules at The Authority. Due to this, only one spawned per game.
