Each machine is also on a timer so the three items being offered will switch often, though players can hit them with a pickaxe to speed up the timer.

One challenge that has left players scratching their heads this week is to find hidden gnomes in various named locations. Even then you aren't guaranteed to find a Legendary Vending Machine if you encounter one at all. Each of the three items in a machine will cost you materials.

It's likely that Epic Games will now make them more common to help players complete the challenge. Today's patch is all about content, and it adds an interesting new feature to Battle Royale: vending machines.

Vending Machines come as part of the most recent Fortnite update, and work just as you might imagine them to: to purchase a trade materials.




Following the latest update, players are now searching frantically for all the Fortnite Vending Machine Locations.

Firstly, named locations means you have to carry out this task in areas that are named on the map, so places such as Fatal Fields, Anarchy Acres and Pleasant Park. As expected, there's at least one vending machine in almost every named location on the map.

Items found in an Uncommon (green) version will cost 200 materials. The update also introduces Limited-Time Mode, another High Explosives mode, weapon balances, which may also include a "first shot accuracy" ability.

Taking to the official forums, Epic Games announced that the update will land for all platforms, and won't actually require any title updating, so you won't have to have any gaming downtime.
