Epic Games smash hit shooter, Fortnite, continues to evolve week-to-week with new content for players to enjoy. After first being discovered through datamining, vending machines have been added to Battle Royale, offering players random deals and items when found. Considering the frantic and sometimes fast-moving games of Battle Royale, finding a vending machine can be a pain. Thanks to dedicated players, a new map has been put together showing each location where a vending machine can be found.
Just like loot llamas, these new Fortnite vending machines are scattered across the map. To help players find them, Reddit user clizzythegod posted a handy map created by FortniteIntel that places arrows at each location where a vending machine can be found. As expected, there’s at least one vending machine in nearly every named location on the map. Haunted Hills, Dusty Depot, and Fatal Fields are the only locations to not have one directly on-site, but players can find one nearby.
Part of the fun with vending machines is the random nature of them. While there’s plenty to pick from around the map, each vending machine is assigned a certain rarity at the start of a match, which means any items on offer will match that rarity. Each machine is also on a timer so the three items being offered will switch often, though players can hit them with a pickaxe to speed up the timer. There’s no purchase limit and players simply need to use materials to purchase the item, with each tier of rarity being more expansive than the last. Common items start at 100 materials, for example, while legendary items will set players back 500.
Epic has kept a pretty consistent update schedule for Fortnite, introducing a new patch nearly every week. With a recent slew of problems that have affected the game from server issues to game related bugs like the shotgun critical damage glitch, Epic has decided to slow its schedule and release a new patch every two weeks. While the extra week gives the developer added time to work on issues, the company has also promised that this won’t impact the weekly content updates that player shave come to expect. New features will continue to arrive on a weekly basis, without the need to update the game.
Fortnite is available now on PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and iOS.
