'Fortnite' vending machines should help to level the Battle Royale playing field

Fortnite Is Out Now On Mobile And It Changes Everything Fortnite's latest update brings vending machines

Fortnite's iconic island is now dotted with vending machines, which will give you all kinds of guns and goodies in exchange for building resources.

Were you able to locate a Vending Machine in Fortnite Battle Royale? Here's a map of all the Fornite vending machine locations from our friends at PC Gamer. There's no limit to how many items you can buy, provided you can afford it.

"Each Vending Machine offers three different deals, rarity and items chosen at random", the notes add. Thanks to dedicated players, a new map has been put together showing each location where a vending machine can be found.

And in games such as Fortnite or PUBG, there's loot and materiels that players need to pick up in order to be prepared for battle and secure the victory.

Items found in a Uncommon (green) version will cost 200 materials.


Higher tiers will require more materials, with Epic tier weapons, for example, costing a staggering 500 materials. A number of them are gaining "first shot accuracy", which means the first round fired will be 100% accurate, so long as you haven't fired recently, aim down the sights, and are standing still. The vending machine will display one at a time and slowly rotate through them.

Vending Machines in Fortnite tend to spawn around cities or places where lots of people gather.

These aren't simply buffs for the weapons, as damage falloff-the distance at which their damage is reduced-has also been altered.

We'll update you as soon as Epic Games works on a further patch to make things right with the last one.
