Fortnite Funding Station locations and how to use Funding Stations

Cast your vote.

Funding Stations returned to the Fortnite map in Chapter 3 Season 2.

These Funding Stations allow players to vote on what items will be added into the game in the future. There’s usually two options, with each costing a certain Gold Bar amount to select.

It’s essentially a vote, with players given the opportunity to spend Gold Bars in the hope of bringing a special item into the game at a future date. Here’s where to find Fortnite Funding Stations, and how to use them.

Note this particular challenge is no longer able to be completed. What's new? Chapter 4 Season 2 has arrived! New additions include the Grind Rails and Kinetic Blades, along with the new Battle Pass, character collection and Eren Jaeger skin. It's a good idea to know how to get XP fast in Fortnite.

Funding Station locations at a glance

Funding Stations can be found at almost all named locations on the Fortnite map - the map below shows their locations at a glance.

Once you’ve landed at one of the locations circled on the map above, you’ll want to look out for a particular icon on your minimap. It looks like a small bag of money, and will appear once you are within a certain range of the Funding Station. You can see this in the image below.

When Funding Stations are live, you will be able to approach them and interact to trigger the vote. You will then need to spend the required Gold Bars to cast your vote. There are always two options, ranging from vehicles to weapons and consumables.

If you’re struggling to find a Funding Station, note that they look like small message boards. You can see one in the image below.

Fortnite Chapter 5 Season 1 is here! It brings a free Lego Insider skin and redemption codes with it, along with a new Victory Umbrella. We've also got pages on new features like Medallions, Weapon Mods, and how to complete a Train Heist. Meanwhile, learn what the best weapons are in the current season, how to get XP fast, and what the best PC settings are to help earn a Victory Crown.

When are Funding Stations next going live?

The Funding Stations are currently live with your choice being between Shield Bubbles and Ballons.

Both of these items were recently trailed in Fortnite, so, if you played during this period, pick your favourite and, if you didn't, which one sounds most interesting to you.

Remember - you need gold bars to donate to a Funding Station!
