Where to find Malfunctioning Vending Machines in Fortnite Chapter 3

One of the additional ways to purchase loot in-game was the implementation of Vending Machines during Chapter 2. Now in Season 1 of Chapter 3, Epic Games has tweaked the Vending Machines so that some of them are Malfunctioning, producing random items.

Items from Malfunctioning Vending Machines all cost 100 Gold Bars, and every purchase is random so you never know what you're going to receive. To complete the Week 6 challenge, you'll only need to purchase one item from the Malfunctioning Machines, so here's where to find them.

There are a total of 14 points where Malfunctioning Vending Machines can spwan on the Chapter 3 Season 1. Malfunctioning Vending Machines spawn at random in the various slots, so you'll need to search through the spots until you find one.

Thankfully you only need to purchase one item to complete the challenge. So here is a map with all the potential points of spawn.

This can be a rather time consuming challenge if you don't get lucky, so try to drop in an place with multiple Vending Machines like Coney Crossroads or Sleepy Sound. The Vending Machines won’t be marked on the full-screen map, but your minimap in the top right corner of the screen will highlight Vending Machines when they’re nearby.

Do keep in mind there will likely be other players searching for Vending Machines trying to complete the task, so keep your head on a swivel when dropping into these locations.
