We’ve all seen Vending Machines dotted around the map, but they do not have an uses, apart from providing some material when smashed.
Twitter user @TwoEpicBuddies has tweeted this:
Looks like there will be use for the Vending Machine coming to Fortnite, but what could the uses of this item be? There are already Shield Potions and Healing items, so doesn’t seem like it would be used to enhance health in any way.
Something that the Vending Machine could provide is a Speed Boost. This would be beneficial for players that could take more time to loot places when the Storm is closing in, as they know it will be easier to get out of the Storm. It could also help players to run away from fights that they know they cannot win, possibly due to enemies having an height or loot advantage.
It could act as a random item generator, that can only be used once. For example, you could use the Vending Machine and receive a Shield or Bandages.
Seems like there has been a glitch in the game that shows the Vending Machine as seen in this video posted on YouTube by Conor Byrne:
This shows the Vending Machine can be searched, but doesn’t reveal what items you could get. They could provide a new consumable, or one already in the game.
Let us know in the comments section below what you think the Vending Machine could be used for.
