The Unvaulting was a live event that took place during Week 10 of Season 8 on May 4th, 2019, 3:00 P.M. EST. The event consisted of the hatch at Loot Lake opening, revealing a gateway to the Vault. The hatch would teleport all players to a large, barren dimension with a giant nexus, a desk, and 6 pillars containing one vaulted item each. The items in the pillars were the X-4 Stormwing, Infinity Blade, Grappler, Bouncer, Drum Gun, and the Tactical Submachine Gun. Players would vote upon which weapon they would like taken out of the vault by using their harvesting tool to hit the pillar of choice until one shattered, freeing the weapon from
the vault. The item that players voted for the most was the Drum Gun.
After the Drum Gun was unvaulted, players were teleported above Loot Lake and the Volcano erupted, sending magma rocks that hit Tilted Towers, Retail Row, and Polar Peak. There was a separate Limited Time Mode for players to watch the event named The Unvaulting. It played similarly to Team Rumble, with the elimination limit being 200 instead of 150. The storm circle was always positioned directly over the Loot Lake bunker so you wouldn't respawn and teleport across the map to miss the event.
