And now those clever souls at Epic have released the fan-favourite battle royale game on mobile, so NOW you can play it anywhere! The higher the rarity, the higher the price.
Get more insight into the covert ops team of Blackwatch (led by Reaper, before he donned the skull mask) in the latest Overwatch comic, which could be setting the stage for a new Overwatch Archives mission being added to the game later this year.
As explained by the full patch notes over on Epic's website, you'll now notice that vending machines have taken up residence in multiple areas around the map. The vending machine will display one at a time and slowly rotate through them. There's also no limit to the number of items a vending machine can produce, so these certainly have the potential of producing some well-armed enemies if enough people find them.
The addition of Vending Machines to Fortnite follows the game's most recent update, which saw the inclusion of devastating new weaponry like guided missiles, new battle modes, graphical updates and bug fixes. While there's plenty to pick from around the map, each vending machine is assigned a certain rarity at the start of a match, which means any items on offer will match that rarity.
They can be used to trade in your materials, Stone, Wood and Metal, and you'll receive loot in exchange. If you are short on time, you can pickaxe it to skip to the next three items. Going forward, Epic will deliver new content every other week without having to push out an update. There are three different weapon choices per machine, one for each type of material. Most importantly, balance changes are being implemented for the weapons. These simply are not buffs for the weapons.
