While skill plays an important role when it comes to surviving in a Fourteen days match, you may come up short if you don’t have enough loot available. Finding the best weapons and just enough healing supplies is key to ensuring your survival and taking out other players in the final stages of a match. You can survive on a lot less in the early game, but the end-game build battles can be quite expensive when it comes to building materials, ammo, and cures.
Loot boxes and floor loot should provide players with enough loot early in the game, but they’re not the only ways to gear up Fourteen days. Players can not only eliminate other players to claim their loot, but also purchase items using vending machines. Using vending machines allows players to select the type of loot they want, reducing the overall randomness of looting.
Each vending machine offers players certain items in exchange for building materials unless they malfunction. Broken vending machines work with gold instead of building materials and give out random items, meaning players cannot select an item. If you want to spice up your looting patterns by incorporating vending machines into your routes, you can visit the following attractions, but make sure you bring some looting materials or gold with you.

Using vending machines is a relatively simple process. However, if this is your first time using a machine, you should always watch your back as it is not that difficult to spot a machine from afar. In most cases, you can become a sitting target, so it’s usually recommended to cover your surroundings with walls while using a vending machine. Walls provide you with enough cover and give you the ability to fight back if an enemy tries to trip you while you’re selecting a weapon.
Even if you don’t want to incorporate vending machines into your looting routes, there will be challenges where you’ll need to use them. You can also use Vending Machines as bait as most nearby players are likely to come close to them.
