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.


Did The Rock just tease he’s getting a Fortnite skin?

After an appearance by a very cartoony-looking float during the Macy’s Thanksgivings Day Parade, The Rock hinted that he may end up getting a skin in the popular battle royale game Fortnite, although he’s being a bit vague. 

The Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade floats are known their pop culture references. Between Pikachu, Goku, and others making appearances, it shouldn’t really come as a surprise that one based on the popular young Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson meme a few years back would make its way into the 2020 version of the parade.

Seemingly because it’s a float, the giant balloon itself seems to be a cartoon representation of the meme, rather than a hyper-realistic one. After one person seemed to point out that it looks a bit like a Fortnite skin, the former wrestler now actor responded in a way that’s raising a few eyebrows.

In response to the comment about his float looking like a Fortnite character, The Rock simply responded with “way ahead of you” and “great minds”. This obviously caused a few people to pause and ask themselves if he just hinted at a Fortnite skin.

Unfortunately, we don’t have any official comment from Epic but the comment is certainly suspicious. While one could make the argument that The Rock was saying that he also had the same thought before the original tweeter, the wink face emoji seen after the tweet is a bit peculiar. Surely he would know not to put that kind of statement out with that emoji unless he meant to hint at it, right?

It’s also a bit odd that he also responded to someone who tweeted that they “shouldn’t give them any ideas”, meaning he could have been totally knowledgable in what he’s doing.

His inclusion in the game also wouldn’t be surprising. Fortnite is known for its crossovers at this point, even allowing for some Icon Series skins based on celebrities like Ninja and others. It could also be a part of a larger WWE crossover, considering there’s a plethora of characters there to make skins out of.

Still, until nothing official is announced, take this with a massive grain of salt. Here’s hoping that if it is real that it will get announced soon, however.
