Fortnite Map Shows All Known Vending Machine Locations

It doesn't make much sense for Epic to put the Fortnite Vending Machines in set locations as if they were in the same places every game, players would be camping them.

Fortnite, like PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds, is one of the most popular online Battle Royale games out now. Sure, a lot of them are just doing damage with a certain weapon, or opening chests in a certain location - those are things you're eventually going to accomplish without even trying. As you can see, they are bound to come in rather handy. Vending Machines and more with the v3.4 Content Update. The Vending Machines now drop in different types of rarity tiers, with their cost increasing depending on the type of machine. Each of the three items in a machine will cost you materials.

And while it might not be the flashiest addition to Battle Royale, the vending machines could have a major impact on the way the game is played. That rarity dictates the price, with the rarer items demanding more mats.




Items found in a Uncommon (green) version will cost 200 materials. The items that are sold will match the rarity that comes with it and there is no purchase limit.

Epic Games has also added a limited-time High Explosives game mode. You just need to get this to happen in seven different named locations to complete the challenge. The machines will cycle through the three available items on a short timer, but you can speed the timer up by bashing the machine with your pickaxe. Most importantly, balance changes are being implemented for the weapons.

It's likely that Epic Games will now make them more common to help players complete the challenge.
