Where to ‘purchase a weapon of Rare rarity or higher’ in Fortnite

To purchase a weapon of Rare rarity or higher for this weekly Fortnite challenge, simply visit a Vending Machine at one of the locations we’ve mentioned above and purchase a weapon in exchange for Gold Bars.

Each Vending Machine around the island will offer different weapons at different rarities, so make sure you purchase one that’s Rare or higher – that’s Rare (Blue), Epic (Purple), or Legendary (Orange).

Some random Vending Machines will actually be Malfunctioning Vending Machines, which have a red warning on the screen. These give out a random, unknown item, so it’s best to avoid them for this quest.

If you’re running low on Gold Bars, you can earn more of them by completing Bounties, defeating other players, searching safes and shop tills, and destroying washing machines in the game.
