How To Find All Malfunctioning Vending Machines in Fortnite

How To Find All Malfunctioning Vending Machines in Fortnite
Written by: ar1essss

If there's anything we know about Fortnite, it's that there are a variety of ways that you can find good loot. There are so many options from the fantastic chest system that Fortnite has started since the very beginning, to the new and improved seed planting which grants you great loot from the start of the round if you choose to pursue it. Of course, one of the most critical parts of having good loot is the vending machines, which can offer you some fantastic loot for a bit of gold.


One category of such vending machines is malfunctioning vending machines. These vending machines essentially have a mind of their own, functioning entirely in the way that they want to and disregarding anything you need. Sometimes though, they do offer some fantastic lutes such as the double pump shotgun which will send you flying on each pull of the trigger.


Other times, it also offers some fantastic rare weapons and even epic weapons. Best of all though, every single item in the malfunctioning vending machine costs only 100 gold. So, you could be getting more than what you bargained for.




However, there is one thing standing between you and the malfunctioning vending machines, and the clutter of quests that come with the malfunctioning vending machine; that thing is finding them. Unlike the rest of the vending machines, these are incredibly hard to find due to their rarity. So, we’re here to make that all simple and easy, by helping you how to find them in 2022!




Malfunctioning Vending Machines Locations in Fortnite Season 3 – Vibing


The first and most popular area to find malfunctioning vending machines is by far Coney Crossroads. Coney Crossroads is one of the only two locations on the whole map where there are 3 functioning vending machines. That makes it one of the two main locations you should check in case one of the vending machines has been replaced with a malfunctioning one.

The other most popular destination for malfunctioning vending machines is Sleepy Sound, which also features 3 functioning vending machines just like Coney Crossroads. This makes Sleepy Sound one of the two best locations to find the malfunctioning vending machines as well, plus here you have a variety of cars at your disposal to traverse the environment much faster than you can in Coney Crossroads.


The third and one of the most common locations to find the malfunctioning vending machines is Shifty Shafts. While Shifty Shafts doesn’t feature the same number of vending machines as Coney Crossroads sleepy sound or even Greasy Grove, it does have a higher spawn rate when it comes to the malfunctioning vending machine.

The same can be said for Rocky Reels. While deserted at this point, it has little to no vending machines but the only one that spawns there has more chance of being spawned as a malfunctioning vending machine than others. You can also increase the chances of the vending machine being spotted by just going around the entire map and interacting with as many vending machines as you can.

The most effective way by far though has to be going through gas stations in the game. The malfunctioning vending machines have a tendency to spawn right next to gas stations, so that's a huge win for players that are looking to find them.

The malfunctioning vending machines are usually the regular vending machines that begin to malfunction. So, almost every round will have completely different locations for the malfunctioning vending machine.
