How to Find Encrypted Vaults

Search For a Square Hologram and Use Ecive

Each area on the map has a set locations where Encrypted Vaults can spawn. When you see a holographic square with a greenish color, the spawns are near that area.

After you have encountered a holographic square, Use Ecive and listen to the ping. If the ping sounds muddled, you are heading in the wrong direction. However, if it is sharp, you are facing the general direction of the Encrypted Vault.

Encrypted Vaults can spawn in certain locations of the map, but chances of them appearing are not a 100%. This means that you may find Encrypted Vaults in new locations, and not encounter them in past spawn sites you've visited.

How to Unlock Encrypted Vaults

Difficulty Required Items
Normal Code Analyzer
Precision Code Analyzer
Ultra-Precision Code Analyzer
Hard ・Code Breaker

Code Analyzers and Code Breakers are consumable items that enable you to unlock Encrypted Vaults. There are three types of Code Analyzers, namely Code, Precision Code, and Ultra-Precision Code Analyzers.

Code Analyzers and Code Breakers are usually found as enemy drops encountered throughout certain missions in the game. You'll acquire Code Analyzers from missions in Normal difficulty, while you get Code Breakers from missions in Hard difficulty.

Complete Minigame

Once you've selected the prompt to use a Code Analyzer to an Encrypted Vault, you will access a minigame that requires you to stop the rotating pointer to its designated area of target.

The minigame's difficulty will depend on what Code Analyzer you've used on the Encrypted Vault.

Other Descendants Can Exhaust the Spawns

Keep in mind that only one Descendant can unlock an Encrypted Vault. After it is unlocked, other players cannot attempt to unlock the found Encrypted Vault.
