How to purchase items from malfunctioning vending machines in Fortnite

Want to purchase a random item from a malfunctioning vending machine in Fortnite? In most popular battle royale games, you find loot by opening chests or scattered across the ground, but Fortnite also gives players the option to purchase items from NPCs and vending machines. One of this week’s season challenges asks you to buy an item from a malfunctioning vending machine to earn some experience to earn Fortnite skins and free Fortnite V-Bucks in the battle pass.

The tricky bit here is finding a malfunctioning vending machine in the first place; while vending machines all have fixed locations on the map, they aren’t all broken. You can tell if a specific vending machine is working or not by looking at it (it’ll look, er, broken) or by looking for the vending machine’s minimap icon when you’re close enough. An exclamation mark on the minimap leads to a red malfunctioning vending machine. In this guide, we’ll show you every vending machine location on the Fortnite map. However, it’s up to you to find one that is malfunctioning – and you can’t force it to malfunction by beating it up, in case you were wondering.

Before you even begin searching for these vending machines, make sure you have 100 gold in order to purchase a random item If you’re a bit short on cash, you can check out our Fortnite gold bars guide for more information.
