Another week has rolled around and that means a new set of weekly challenges for Fortnite Battle Royale's Battle Pass. In other words, you probably won't find a Vending Machine in the middle of Fatal Fields with nothing around it.

Just like loot llamas, these new Fortnite vending machines are scattered across the map. As the players would expect, they would most easily find Vending Machines in high-density areas such as Pleasant Park, Salty Springs, Tilted Towers, and Retail Row, but there are even the others in the unnamed parts. Vending Machines will host 3 items, with one item purchasable by wood, stone and metal each. Haunted Hills, Dusty Depot, and Fatal Fields are the only locations to not have one directly on-site, but players can find one nearby.

And while it might not be the flashiest addition to Battle Royale, the vending machines could have a major impact on the way the game is played. The vending machine would display each at a time and gradually rotate through them.

In return for swapping your materials, you can items that vary in rarity.

For example, items found in a Common (white) version will cost 100 materials whereas items found in an Epic (purple) version will cost 400 materials.

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

Here's what a "Fortnite" Vending Machine looks like in-game.

It was released for console and PC gamers in September 2017, and is thought to already have upwards of 45m players, but the iOS release marks the first time it has been available to those playing on mobile.
