Fortnite Adds Vending Machines, Explosives Mode to Battle Royale

There's no limit to how many items you can buy, provided you can afford it. Thank goodness Battle Royale's latest update welcomes vending machines. The initial such "content update", as Epic calls them, has come on every platform and features the Vending Machine, among the other additions and changes. Each vending machine also randomly selects a rarity and the costs are as follows. 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 made a decision to slow its schedule and release a new patch every two weeks. Considering the frantic and sometimes fast-moving games of Battle Royale, finding a vending machine can be a pain. The locations are now spread out all over the island map and can be accessed on both the interior and shoreline of the island. The type of resource each item requires actively cycles over the course of a match, and the switch happens faster if you hit the Vending Machine with your trusty Pickaxe.

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

Items found in an Epic (purple) version will cost 400 materials. Vending Machines will host 3 items, with one item purchasable by wood, stone and metal each.

Items found in a Legendary (gold) version will cost 500 materials.

Epic has kept a pretty consistent update schedule for Fortnite, introducing a new patch almost every week.

It appears there will be a set amount of places on the map which will see Vending Machines appear, but they won't always been in the same place.

On top of all of that, there will also be a number of different adjustments to other weapons, which will be getting First Shot Accuracy.
