Vault Symbol Locations Guide

Ardorton Station

Vault Symbol #1

  • Location: Take the steps down into the curved structure in the north corner. Inside, run to the back west corner of the building and run down the step. The symbol is on the wall, right behind a gun chest.

Vault Symbol #2

  • Location: Start in the center of the map, and look to the northern wall of the area — straight south from the previous symbol. Take the double stairs up to a massive door, and jump onto the ledge on the right, where skulls a hanging near a small settlement. Jump down from the ledge onto the shacks below, then step onto the fence to find an alcove you can’t normally reach from the ground. Jump in, and look to the ceiling.

Vault Symbol #3

  • Location: Start from the center of the zone and look north for a small rocky western corner with several fallen tree logs scattered around the grass. Look for a lean-to, there’s a piece of metal leaning on the rock wall with a symbol painted on.

Vault Symbol #4

  • Location: Travel down to the southern wall of the zone near the center of the zone. Look for an area with two large vats behind a metal fence. Take the steps up and look behind the tall building on scaffolding, sticking against the zone’s south wall to look behind the shacks. There’s a fence wall, check behind it to find the symbol.

Candlerakk’s Crag

Vault Symbol #1

  • Location: Travel to the southern section of the zone, and look for a small open area across a rickety bridge over the water. Tall rocks stands around the edges with small crystals in the center. Look at the large rock walls on the edge of the map, the symbol is plainly visible.

Vault Symbol #2

  • Location: Travel to the eastern zone of the map, where a large circular mountain puts a hole in the middle of the area. Cross the bridges to the native village and circle around to the northern part of the village. Look behind the large building closest to the edge to uncover another symbol.

Vault Symbol #3

  • Location: Go further east into the rightmost part of the map. Go to the massive cavern and look on the map for a tiny empty hole signifying a rock pillar. There’s a pinpoint sized hole on the map. Look on the naturally formed column inside the cave to find the symbol.

H.S.S. Terminus

Vault Symbol #1

  • Location: Run up the holographic ramp after clearing the area. Run down the hall, and just as you enter the first larger room look to the ceiling.

Hunter’s Grotto

Vault Symbol #1

  • Location: There’s a small area between the larger sections of the map with a fast travel terminal. Travel to the area via the terminal and look on a nearby shipping container.

Vault Symbol #2

  • Location: Start on the west section of the zone. Travel south to the large inward area curving toward the center. Look on the north wall from this southern part of the western area. There’s a small town with an elevator winch. Take the lift down looking down at the twin waterfalls. Inside the cave, run to the left path and look right on the rock wall.

Vault Symbol #3

  • Location: Travel to Sir Hammerlock’s home, and exit out through the small door right of Hammerlock. Stepping onto the patio, turn left and look on the roof.

Scylla’s Grove

Vault Symbol #1

Vault Symbol #2

  • Location: Take the elevator back up to the village and turn left. Run onto the catwalks and cross toward one of the buildings near the sheer drop. One of the larger buildings has a small lip, look up to see the ceiling.
