Vending Machine dispenses items of different rarities and requires materials in return.
Epic Games’ Fortnite has received some more content as part of the previous patch. Considered more of a content patch, it’s currently available for all platforms and brings a Vending Machine to the game along with numerous other changes.
The Vending Machine can be found in various areas of the Fortnite: Battle Royale map. Much as the name indicates, they’ll dish out three items of random rarity in exchange for different materials. Higher rarities means higher prices and there’s no cap on the items you can buy. A helpful summary of item costs can be seen below:
Depending on the material exchanged, there are corresponding items as well. You can either wait for the Vending Machine to cycle through them slowly or use a pickaxe to go to the next three items. If that weren’t enough, there’s a new limited time mode which is a modified version of High Explosives. Along with the usual explosive weapons, you can expect Remote Explosives and Guided Missiles to be part of the experience. Friendly fire has been removed and the wait time for the first four storms has been reduced so be careful. Other changes can be seen below from the patch notes.
