For the first batch of Fortnite Season 7’s Weekly Quests, you’re tasked with buying a Shield Potion from a Mending Machine, so here’s where to find and use them.

A brand new Fortnite season has arrived, bringing with it a new Battle Pass and its Battle Star currency system. To get a headstart with the Season 7 Battle Pass and unlock the Rick Sanchez skin, Epic Games have continued to offer a series of weekly challenges to earn a ton of XP.

As is typical with the start of a new season, the Weekly Quests are there to familiarise you with the new mechanics for the season. Season 7’s Week 1 Quests ask you to accept a mission from a payphone, deal damage with the new Pulse Rifle, and buy a Shield Potion from a Mending Machine.

Here are the locations of each Mending Machine in Season 7, and how to purchase a Shield Potion from them.

Mending Machines are very similar to the Weapon-O-Matic vending machines, but as the name suggests, they will sell you healing items. To familiarise players with these extremely useful machines, you have to purchase a Shield Potion from one of them as part of Season 7’s Week 1 Challenges.

Mending Machines typically spawn by Gas Stations around the Fortnite Season 7 map. These can be found either in the major POIs or out in the wilderness.

Thanks to the website Fortnite.GG, we can see the location of each of the Mending Machines you have to visit to purchase your shield potions.

Unfortunately, there’s an RNG element to this challenge as the Mending Machines aren’t guaranteed to spawn. If you arrive at a location and the machine isn’t there, you can consult this map again to see where the nearest one might be.

Once you arrive at a Mending Machine, you need to spend Gold to purchase a Shield Potion. Gold has reset with the beginning of the new season, so you can check out our guide on how to get Gold Bars and spend them.

How to crouch in Fortnite

Crouching is a common action that players perform in Fortnite to line up a shot or stay low. Here’s a guide on how to crouch.

How to Crouch in Fortnite

Fortnite consists of several keybinds by default, each of which performs a different action. One of the common actions that players perform is a crouch to line up their shot with accuracy or to hide from their opponents. Here’s how you can crouch in Fortnite.

Movement mechanisms in Fortnite have evolved over time since the OG days in Chapter 1. Crouching has been around since Chapter 1 in Battle Royale, however, players of Fortnite’s PvE campaign Save The World did not have it at first.

As new mechanics of Sprint, Slide and Mantle were added to Chapter 3, all movement mechanics in Fortnite became common across its PvP and PvE modes. Players use crouch frequently whenever they want to hide or line up a shot against their opponents.

Here’s a step-by-step guide on how to crouch in Fortnite.

PC Controls in Fortnite

Crouching in Fortnite is pretty simple. However, the controls vary across different platforms and input methods. The default keybind to crouch on PC is the Left Ctrl key. However, you can also change the key according to your preference as well.

PS4 controls in Fortnite

When it comes to the controller, the default button in Standard configuration on a PS4 is the L1 button and Xbox is the LB button. However, if you use the Combat Pro controller configuration, the crouch action will bind to pressing Right Analog Joystick or R3 button on your controller.

The difference between the two configurations is that the Right stick in Combat Pro only allows the crouch action upon tapping and not holding as compared to an assigned button in Standard mode. While there is a debate between players on the two modes, they tend to use the tap action to use the stick to look around while crouching.


There are various ways you can move around Fortnite island. Whether it’s sliding down a hill or sprinting away from your opponent or mantling over their builds, these mechanics will help you survive and get you that Victory Royale.

How to flip a car in Fortnite

One of the most enjoyable things to do in Fortnite is driving cars. However when you wreck a car, here’s how you can flip it back upright.

How to flip a car in Fortnite

Fortnite players have their fair share of fun around the island while fighting for their survival. Cars have been a vital element of that fun as players cause carnage around the island while they drive. Here’s how to flip a car in Fortnite to get it back on track.

Cars have been one of the most popular vehicles in Fortnite. Before they were introduced, players were just breaking them to harvest materials as cars were just a mere prop in the game.

But ever since cars became a part of the island as a vehicle, players have been driving around the island, fueling their cars up, tuning into radio stations, modding them, and eliminating their enemies by driving past them.

However, sometimes when players make a wrong turn or drive the car up a ramp or a hill, it tends to get overturned and wrecked. To bring it back to its original state, here’s how you can flip a car in Fortnite.

Flipped Car in Fortnite

Flipping a car in Fortnite Season 3 is pretty simple. All you need to do is either find an overturned car or you can overturn one yourself. You can either run it off a hilltop or build a ramp and drive off it to do the same.

Once it’s overturned, here’s how you can flip it back on its wheels:

  1. Approach the overturned vehicle.
  2. Press the interact button on your keyboard (E by default), or controller (Square on PlayStation and X on Xbox) to flip the car.
  3. And you’re done! You have successfully flipped a car and it’s ready for you to drive.

However, you need to be mindful of your surroundings as your nearby opponents can hear you start and drive a car around them. So get those driving gloves on and drive as fast as you can to leave your opponents in the storm.


Apart from cars, other vehicles like Ballers and the Armored Battle Bus are currently in-game as well. You can use these to roam around the island as you like and have some fun as No Sweat Summer comes to a close in Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3.
