If you thought you had seen the last of the controversial guided missile in Fortnite Battle Royale, think again.

Epic has confirmed the weapon is making a comeback in a future update. This time, however, it will work a little differently to give those defending it some chance.

This week’s Fortnite update brings vending machines to battle royale, allowing you to trade unwanted building materials for weapons.

The vending machines are scattered around the map, and each offers three items of randomly-selected rarities. The items are cycled every so often and there is no limit to how many you can purchase in each match.

Epic Games has also added a limited-time High Explosives game mode.
