Fortnite Chapter 3: Where to find a Malfunctioning Vending Machine
In Fortnite Chapter 3, malfunctioning vending machines appear to be more difficult to come by than in prior chapters. However, if one is fortunate enough to locate one, they will notice that the machine does not operate in the same manner as traditional vending machines.
Instead, these devices require you to “roll the dice” and exchange currency for a random item. Although that may appear to be an appealing gamble, it is uncommon for players to locate a vending machine like this right after landing.
Malfunctioning Vending Machines, unlike Weapon-O-Matics and Mending Machines, do not have fixed positions. Despite the fact that the locations of all vending machines remain the same throughout the season, this issue will take over previously functioning vending machines at random during each match.
Because each important center of interest has at least two vending machines, we recommend stopping by one of them and checking both of them for a malfunction. It’s likely that you’ll only need to visit up to two POIs to encounter a Malfunctioning Vending Machine.
When standing in front of the Malfunctioning Vending Machine, it should display a giant white exclamation point. Before getting this random weapon, you will need 100 Gold to employ its “roll the dice” feature. This trade-off will almost always result in either a Common or an Uncommon item. Players are more likely to be handed a Rare or Legendary weapon with each roll.
