Fortnite vending machines have finally made their way back onto the island, after taking a long rest in the vault following the end of Chapter 1. They've been given a dusting off and are now reprogrammed for Fortnite Season 7, meaning there are now two different versions you can encounter as either Weapon-O-Matics or Mending Machines.

Not only can these booths provide you with a handy weapon or healing item in a pinch if you have enough Fortnite gold bars to pay for them, but you'll sometimes need them for particulars quests as well, so it's helpful to know where exactly in Fortnite you can find them. That's why we're here to help, with a breakdown of all the Fortnite vending machines locations and instruction for how to use them when you get 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 29 Weapon-O-Matics to buy new guns from, which are fairly evenly distributed across the island, and 12 Mending Machines offering health items that are all found near Fortnite gas pumps at fuel stations. You can spot them when you get close, as a gold bar in a sack icon 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 use Fortnite Vending Machines

To use 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 find a Malfunctioning Vending Machine instead. This machine is glitching out, 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.
