Fortnite Player Discovers Secret Weapons Vending Machine
One Fortnite player got the shock of a lifetime when he stumbled upon a very curious vending machine hidden on the map. This vending machine doesn’t dispense food or drinks, or even potions. It dispenses weapons, and it accepts a form of currency that everyone in Fortnite typically has more than enough of wood. Check it out in the video below.
Datamining from Fortnite Intel’s report indicates that the vending machine is truly in Fortnite: Battle Royale, as they were able to locate the same exact model in the game’s files.
If you take a closer look at the video, you can actually see the exact location on the map that he happened to be when he fell through the map. You can clearly make out a small hill below his white player arrow, so it may be worth finding that hill for yourself and seeing if you can recreate this glitch. If you have some wood on you, who knows, maybe you could be the first person in the world to actually use this vending machine successfully? Here’s the spot on the map:
It is unclear at the moment whether or not the vending machine will be a permanent addition to Fortnite or if it will be apart of a special limited time event that may be coming in the future. A feature of this kind that will allow players to purchase weapons will most likely be controversial to parts of the community, as it is something we have never seen before in a battle royale game and looks to go against the genre’s core concept of fighting with what weapons you are able to scavenge. Until the actual mechanics of the vending machine are confirmed, players will have to wait and see if this future addition to the popular game is welcomed or discouraged.
