"Fortnite Battle Royale" players are used to big updates every week, and this week won't be an exception. Epic Games, "Fortnite" developer, will release a game-changing feature to the popular video game with the next patch. While there is no specific release date for the next update, it's a good guess that it will be released on Thursday, April 5, along with new weekly challenges [VIDEO].

Once again, Epic Games announced a new feature through the in-game news section. The game developer revealed that the upcoming update [VIDEO] would add vending machines which will allow players to trade their building resources for weapons.

The concept is simple and it will change the way some players obtain weapons in the popular battle royale game.

Vending machines

Epic Games accidentally added vending machines to "Fortnite Battle Royale" a few ago, allowing players to take a sneak peek at the upcoming feature. Reddit user FewBoss had a chance to use a vending machine before the game developer removed it, and while many players thought it was just a glitch, it turned out to be an upcoming feature.

The player found a vending machine at Lonely Lodge, and it was a Minigun machine. The player was offered to deposit 250 wood in order to get the weapon, but the machine was glitched. Another screenshot of a vending machine showed a Tactical Shotgun and its cost was 300 wood.

Building materials are incredibly important in "Fortnite Battle Royale," and that is why many players won't use vending machines.

However, considering that supply llamas give 1,500 materials, some players will be able to deposit extra material and get another gun.

It seems that vending machines will be located at different places and some weapons will require more building resources than others. The game developer will reveal more details about the new feature soon, and we can expect patch notes to be released during the server downtime on Thursday.

Patch 3.4 bugs

Patch 3.4 added a Guided Missile to the game, but it also added plenty of bugs. "Fortnite Battle Royale" console players now deal with a random controller vibration, which wasn't happening before the patch. In addition, players are sometimes unable to fire their guns.

Epic Games addressed the vibration bug and is working on fixing it. Considering that every patch brings new bugs, it won't be surprising if the upcoming patch comes with a few of them as well. While the game developer does a great job releasing updates, there is certainly room for improvement when it comes to bug fixes.
