Fortnite Players Can Exchange Supplies for Gear With New Vending Machines

If you play Fornite and have a stockpile of supplies like wood, metal, and bricks, then you can now exchange them for items like weapons at newly placed vending machines in the game. While this sounds like a great idea, the community — at least in the comment section of the video above — is already shouting about these vending machines making the game even more unbalanced.

If for one haven’t played Fortnite since its launch, but I’ve been following its progress and quick rise up the popularity charts for streaming services, so I’m well aware that it’s a viral title right now. After the release of the homing rocket launcher, it appears that this vending machine has rubbed some fans the wrong way, because it’s being labeled as just another gameplay addition that will make certain players even more over powered than they already are.

Anyway, these vending machines should be in the game now, so be on the lookout if you have a large quantity of supplies laying around, because you can now turn those into useable items.
