'Fortnite' vending machines should help to level the Battle Royale playing field

'Fortnite' vending machines should help to level the Battle Royale playing field

As part of Fortnite's Week 7 challenges, players are tasked with mooching about and trying to get these potted pals to appear.

Fortnite 's Week 7 Challenges are just starting to go live, and we want you to earn the Battle Stars for the toughest ones.

The other main new feature is the vending machines in the Battle Royale mode, which spits out loot in exchange for materials. That rarity dictates the price, with the rarer items demanding more mats. These include new weapons such as an Easter egg launcher, and vending machines that dispense weapons when they're used. Marketed as a somewhat sillier Battle Royale game (because, come on, Easter egg grenade launchers?), Fortnite has gotten a lot more fans than its original concept, building fortresses to survive against zombies, would have ordinarily. There's no purchase limit and players simply need to use materials to purchase the item, with each tier of rarity being more expansive than the last. These vending machines can be found in every corner of the map.

There are five different vending machine types.

Also being reintroduced with this week's content update is the High Explosives Limited Time Mode. A number of them are gaining "first shot accuracy" that means that the first round fired would be 100% accurate, so long as the users have not fired recently, aim down the sights, and are standing still.

April 5th marked the start of Week Seven in Season Three and Epic Games have now released seven new challenges for players to attempt. As the damage falloff, the distance at which their damage is diminished also has been changed.
