Epic Games has admitted that they forgot to place vending machines in Fortnite's new snowman after being called out on Reddit.
The Season 7 update recreated a quarter of the Fortnite Battle Royal Map snow surface and added more new points of interest such as Frosty Fly, Happy Hamlet and more.
While map changes and updates are always welcomed by fans, some noticed that vans appeared to be missing from the new winter area on the map.
David Spalinsky, Design Lead at Epic Games, admitted at / r / FortniteBR that Epic forgot to add vending machines to the new area on the map.
Vending machines are crucial to the flow of battles as they allow players to trade in weapons and other items.
With all the excitement surrounding the launch of season 7, Spalinsky admitted that Epic just forgot to place vending machines in the snowboard area on the map.
Thank you for calling this out. Yes, we forgot. We will add vending machines to the snowy area in 7.20.
Spalinsky assured the fans that the problem would be solved in the 7.20 patch, so for now serious players may be better off landing at The Block, which has its own benefits.
An official date for 7.20 has not yet been announced because Epic is on Winter Break, but it will probably come sometimes shortly after New Year.
