Across the Fortnite map, you are able to find a lot of Vending Machines. It makes players have chances to spend their Gold Bars, which are hard to earn, on weapons or healing items. However, Malfunctioning Vending Machines are a different thing. This malfunctioning vending machine does not offer you a few items to choose from. It will not tell you what you will get before you put your Gold Bars. So, it can be a very rare weapon which can help you to win, but it can also be something useless.
To be able to complete your weekly challenges in Fortnite Chapter 3, you need to find one of these Malfunctioning Vending Machines.
