The Vault is a large, very durable container. It is capable of holding 350 stacks worth of items. If placed in a room, the room needs to be at least 2 walls high, 1 foundation wide and 1 foundation long.


A Vault has 50000 hitpoints. To destroy it you would need:

* The damage is greater than the health-points of structures of that material
** IEDs are currently just about impossible to place on stone, metal, or Tek structures.


  • Unlike smaller storage boxes, a Vault will not be destroyed if the ceiling it sits upon is destroyed. For example, when seated upon the second floor of a building, the vault will fall to the lower floor, if the ceiling is destroyed from underneath it.
  • Based on player experiment, the vault survives the fall only if it is less than ~27 wall's height. Falling from higher altitude results the disappearance of the vault (no lootbag).
  • Vaults can no longer be placed on rafts or platform saddles.
  • On mobile, Vaults can be placed on rafts (tested on unofficial server)
  • Occasionally vaults (and various other crafting stations and storage structures) on Official servers will - seemingly at random - lose their Locked status after server patches. It is recommended to pin-lock vaults and keep valuable items behind walled rooms. Always check your valuable item vaults and crafting stations after each patch to ensure they are properly secured.
  • Vaults are treated as a metal structure
