Where to Find Vending Machines in Fortnite: Battle Royale

Posted April 06, 2018

After first being discovered through datamining, vending machines have been added to Battle Royale, offering players random deals and items when found.

So long as you have the materials, you can access different vending machines in Fortnite: Battle Royale as often as you want as there is no limitation on the number of items you can purchase.

This content update will also introduce a new limited-time mode, an altered version of the explosive weapon-centric playlist High Explosives. You might end up roaming around for a while with nothing but a shotgun and an SMG, neither of which will help you in a long-range gun fight.

As explained by the full patch notes over on Epic's website, you'll now notice that vending machines have taken up residence in multiple areas around the map.

In addition to the Easter Egg grenade launchers that have been added to the game, other new Fortnite content includes vending machines that will now be sprinkled around the map.

The weapons won't be free, however; depending on what you get, you'll have to pay in materials.

Each vending machine will cycle through three different items on a short timer, though you can speed that up by hitting it with your pickaxe. Once they arrive in-game, vending machines will allow players to exchange materials they've collected in the match for weapons and items of a randomly selected rarity.

Things are really BOOM-ing in v2 of this explosive mode! Most importantly, balance changes are being implemented for the weapons.

Epic Games have already confirmed that cross-progression is available in Fortnite, meaning fans can complete the new Challenges on both console, PC and mobile.
