Merchandising machines seen a big change with this substitute. As an alternative of charging you provides for weapons or objects, they’re going to present free loot nonetheless will disappear after you make the most of them as quickly as. Epic moreover eradicated frequent and strange merchandising machines – along with the turret from Legendary merchandising machines.
This shall be an attention-grabbing change, and it signifies that a complete squad can’t get decked-out with purple shotguns. I really feel they made this transformation because of the amount of unusual loot that’s inside the Fortnite world correct now; significantly with Treasure Maps.
Speaking of treasure maps, Epic diminished their availability. The bottom loot drop chance decreased from .53% to .27% and the chest loot drop-rate diminished to 1.65% from Three.25%.

Gauntlet Solo and Duo verify events are once more. Avid gamers inside the top-tier will now have a extra sturdy time discovering matches, though. Epic eradicated the Eight-minute time limit, so now these top-ranked avid gamers should attend for others to catch up.
The bus fare is now -Three in duos to compensate for the inflated kill components. You now get +2 components for reaching 15th place in solos and seventh in duos (beforehand 10th and fifth).
