Fortnite vending machines have once again become a permanent fixture in the battle royale, after spending a chunk of time stored in the vault before Chapter 3 rolled around. There are two different types of units to look out for in Fortnite, with Weapon-O-Matics retailing guns (naturally) while the Mending Machines supply recovery items to increase health or shields. Whether you're trying to purchase a weapon of Rare rarity or higher from a vending machine for one of the Fortnite quests, or you just want some handy supplies to bolster your arsenal, it's handy to know where to find these automated shops. That's why we're here to help, with a round up of all the Fortnite vending machines locations, along with details on how to buy their products when you're there.

If you're wondering where to find Fortnite vending machines locations, then you've come to the right place as we've got all of them marked on the map above. There are Weapon-O-Matics to buy new guns from, which are fairly evenly distributed across the island, and Mending Machines offering health items that are mainly found near Fortnite gas pumps at fuel stations. You can spot them when you get close, as a vending machine icon with either a gun or cross on it will appear, which is visible through walls to highlight where to go. Remember that it is possible to destroy Fortnite vending machines, so if you arrive at a marked location and it's not there then someone may have taken it out.

How do you purchase from Fortnite Vending Machines

To purchase from Fortnite vending machines, all you need to do is approach one and follow the prompt to interact with it. You can then use the wheel to scroll through the different items on offer, if applicable, and if you see something you need then choose the buy option and confirm. Your gold bars will be duly paid, and the item will pop out of the machine in front of you ready for collection.

What are Malfunctioning Vending Machines

Sometimes when you find Fortnite vending machines, instead of a Weapon-O-Matic or Mending Machine you'll discover one of the Fortnite Malfunctioning Vending Machines instead. This unit is glitching out, as shown by its red display screen, and will give you the option to 'roll the dice' and receive a random item for 100 gold bars. It could be something incredible, or it could be a basic item, but unless you take a chance you'll never know.
