Ice machines in Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 8 are a source of healing items.
Thanks to an update in September 2021, you'll also now receive XP for the Season 8 Battle Pass every time you open an ice machine.
You'll also need to open one ice machine for the Big Mouth punchcard, so it's a good idea to start this questline before you go hunting for one of these machines.
When you're ready, however, it's a good idea to know some of the ice machine locations across the Fortnite map.
Ice machine locations in Fortnite explained
When searching for ice machine locations in Fortnite, it's important to remember that, like chests, ice machines are not guaranteed spawns. Due to this, an ice machine you find in one match might not appear in the same location in another.
For this reason, it's a good idea to know the rough location of several ice machines and, on the map below, you can see some of these spots.
Recent new quests include Touch a Cube, Spirit Vessel Caretaker's footprints, Command Signal, scroll locations, mini-pufts, seismographs, Ghostbusters signs and deploying a ghost trap for the Containment Specialist. Elsewhere in Season 8, you can start using Sideways weapons, partake in Sideways encounters, and find colour bottles for Tonna Fish.
If you're in desperate need of an ice machine, we recommend visiting one of the petrol stations. This is because, if there isn't an ice machine present, you can jump in a nearby car and travel to the next petrol station.
You might also find an ice machine inside the lodges in Weeping Woods, the various restaurants found across the Fortnite map and landmarks like Risky Reels.
