Where to find them

Players have to fill a Cubiecrane first before it can turn into a Yellow Vault. There is a list of all known locations at Yellow Vault Locations.

If a player enters within a 25km radius of a Yellow Vault that the player has not attempted to solve before, a system message will pop up in game alerting the user to the fact that, "... a Hotspot Yellow Vault has been built in this area ..." The purpose of this message is to let the user know that there is a Yellow Vault not too far away. The message does not give any indication of the direction of the vault.

Yellow Vaults have also appeared during a Boosted Vault event where the Red Vault devolves to Yellow Vault after 3 hours and then devolves to a Green Vault after 3 hours.

Will there be more in the future?

Yes, Illusionweaver announced that new Cubiecrane locations are determined by an algorithm that considers player density and existing Yellow Vaults.
