Fortnite vending machines were introduced in Season 3, but have since changed. After patch v8.01, the machines allow you to pick up one item per game and then self-destruct. It is no longer necessary to exchange materials such as stone, wood or iron for weapons. It is a very effective way to pick up valuable weapons when there is not much time to loot or when the storm is very close. Check on our map the location of the vending machines.
Location of vending machinesAs you can see, there is a large concentration of vending machines in Paraíso das Palmeiras and Torres Tortas, making these places more attractive to players and therefore more dangerous.
