Vending Machines in Fortnite Battle Royale are the latest thing to help you win the Victory Royale. The problem is that you need to find one to take advantage of the opportunity to buy weapons and items from them. The good news is you can get really lucky in Fortnite as there are five different rarity tiers for Vending Machines. The bad news is that they spawn randomly all across the Fornite Map so any map that you find online is just a place where someone saw one in the game that they were in.
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. So you’ll need to look around a bit and it’s going to come down to being lucky where you drop in to the map. Even then you aren’t guaranteed to find a Legendary Vending Machine if you encounter one at all.
There are five different vending machine types. Like weapons themselves, you’ll find them across the map in Common, Uncommon, Rare, Epic, and Legendary varieties. You can tell each type of vending machine from a distance, and each one contains three items. Each of the three items in a machine will cost you materials. One item will require wood, one stone, and one metal. Obviously, the higher level the vending machine, the better stuff you get from it… but you’ll also be spending a lot more materials.
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. Chalk it up to luck though, hunting down vending machines is a risky tactic as other players will be drawn to them as well. You’re probably just as likely to find a weapon you need in a treasure chest.
