No game has a shortage of developmental secrets. One such secret has been found by a player smack dab in the middle of the map. The catch is that you have to glitch yourself through the terrain in order to get to the secret vending machine.

In the last days of March, a player managed to get himself stuck in the terrain by accident. That accident proved to be hiding a little secret vending machine, which pops out a minigun in exchange for 250 Wood materials.

The Vending Machine is either a secret left there by Epic intentionally or by accident. Or it is something we could see in the future, as the minigun was introduced to the game not that long ago. Epic still hasn't commented on it, but we can expect to hear from the team about the vending machines pretty soon.

The vending machine is located in the middle of the map just below loot lake as you can see on the photo. It is unclear whether Epic will release the vending machines as an additional feature into the game or not. There are two sides to the coin, with one side being players who don't mind the change and the other being the players which believe that will be deviating from the path of the game. 

The game is a battle royale, and players will have to defend themselves as well as attack other players with any weapons they can scavenge. The addition of a vending machine would make players able to just jump on a point, take a house apart and buy themselves an additional weapon.

It is also plausible that Epic may introduce other types of vending machines, such as a medical vending machine or an ammo machine, with which players may replenish their resources using the materials they have.

Epic has been working hard at fixing the game's bugs and adding a ton of new content into the game weekly. Another leak points to Tilted Towers getting destroyed by a meteor, so we are waiting to see what happens there. Hopefully players will continue being as hardy and inspective for as long as the game has secrets and bugs.
