Vending machines aren't something new in Fortnite, but they're just as important in Season 7. Today, we'll show you where you can find them and what you can buy from them.
Have you ever dropped into a Fortnite match, only to wander with your pickaxe for what seems like an eternity? If you can't find any weapons, there's always an easier way – vending machines. The latter were added all the way back in Chapter 1, but got a rework with the start of Season 7: Invasion. Here's all you need to know about them in the current season!

What Are Vending Machines in Fortnite?
Fortnite's battle royale will usually have you going around the map looking for loot. From time to time, you'll encounter an NPC that'll either give you a quest, upgrade or sell you a weapon (or a combination of the three). Vending machines in Fortnite are basically an in-game shop, where you can buy goods. There are three types of vending machines:
- Mending Machines
- Malfunctioning Vending Machines
Mending machines will offer you a selection of consumable items like bandages, medkits, and shield potions. A Weapon-o-matic will only sell weapons of various rarities. The weapons for each match are randomized, but the prices are always the same. Last, but not least, there are the malfunctioning vending machines. They can offer you anything from the other two, plus a small chance for an exotic weapon.

The Vending Machines Rework in Season 7
With the arrival of Season 7: Invasion, players can now buy items from vending machines using gold bars. That wasn't always the case, as prior to the current season, vending machines required no resources and dropped only a single item. Vending machines in Season 7 can also be destroyed, but they won't drop anything. Still, that's a good way to prevent other players from getting an advantage.
