FaZe Tfue shows how to get two free items from Fortnite vending machines

Fortnite professional player Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenney has shown fans how they can nab multiple free items from vending machines in the game.

Vending machines received a major update in the v8.10 patch for the popular battle royale game, which introduced the brand new Baller vehicle alongside a host of weapon balancing changes.

Previously, players were forced to spend materials if they wanted to receive the items that are found inside the vending machine, however after the new update, that is no longer the case.

Vending machines now drop items for free in Fortnite.

Instead, items found in a vending machine are now free, but there is a catch – once the item has been redeemed, the machine will disappear, meaning nobody else can use it.

It seems that there may be a way around this though, as FaZe Clan’s Tfue has found a way to receive multiple items from a vending machine, as long as you’re playing with a partner.

As demonstrated by Tfue and Team Liquid’s Ryan ‘Chap’ Chaplo, if two players take something from a vending machine at the exact same time, two of the item will be dropped, with Tfue saying it’s easy to do as “the timing isn’t that tight.”

This trick will be extremely helpful for duos or squads who would like more than one of an item for their teammates, although it’s currently unknown whether three or four players could try this trick and see the vending machine drop all of them the weapon or item.

It’s likely that this is a bug with the vending machine, so expect to see Epic Games move to fix this in the near future.


Epic confirms long-awaited Fortnite pre-edit changes are coming soon

It’s been a long time coming, but now Fortnite players can be put at ease: Epic are working on pre-edit changes to make building easier after years of the community petitioning.

Pre-editing has been a contentious issue in the Fortnite community for years. They’re on for all players, and helps players quickly place a lot of edited builds.

However, most players don’t use pre-editing, so its existence ends up being a hindrance more than anything. It can leave players exposed due to a poor build, something they weren’t intending at the time.

Pre-edits have been the bane of Fortnite players across the world. Thankfully, Epic are working on disabling them.

A new rallying cry across the community comes across with every new season, pleading with Epic to at least give player the option to disable pre-edits. While they’ve been dodging the issue for quite some time, there’s finally been some solid news.

After a year of uncertainty with Epic stating they were “actively considering” it, they’ve now set their course on giving the community what they want.

“We don’t have an exact timetable, but we’re going to [add a disable pre-edit option],” community coordinator TheStevieT told players on Reddit.

It comes after more clips of players dying because of their pre-edited builds went viral across Reddit and other social media platforms. It’s quite the common occurrence, and with Epic now solidifying their stance, it’s got players excited.

That being said, it could be a little while before it’s added. They’ve started work, but without an exact timetable in mind, it could be seasons down the line. One can hope that it’ll be added in Chapter 2 Season 5 at the end of 2020 though.


Another Epic staffer, gstaffEpic, clarified that such a change isn’t in any of the Fortnite builds yet. However, it’s getting close, and it’s something they’re “working towards.”

It might not be the most explosive subject, but as far as quality of life changes go, this could completely transform the way Fortnite is played. We will update you once more information arises.
