Epic Games have added a way to keep Fortnite players on their feet after being taken down by an enemy, and here’s how you can use this Mending Machine trick to stay alive.

Fortnite offers players a ton of fun activities to enjoy when they hop into the battle royale title. You can open Vaults across the map to collect some neat loot and even slide to get around quicker.

Epic Games have also included ways for players to keep themselves in the game when the odds are against them. In Chapter 3, Mending Machines can be used to stay alive after an enemy shoots you down.

Fortnite Mending Machines can replenish your shields and health, keeping you in the game. You can take advantage of these after an enemy knocks you down to extend the time it takes for your health to deplete.

Reddit user ‘madelrush’ highlighted this trick in the game’s subreddit. You can crawl in front of the machine after getting knocked and interact with it to replenish your health repeatedly.

However, this comes at the cost of some Gold Bars, so you’ll need to save up on those if you wish to utilize this trick. You can get that done by checking out our guide on how to earn Gold Bars in Fortnite.

Many less-skilled players expressed their appreciation of this feature in the comments. “Game changer,” one user jokingly wrote. “Considering I spend 90% of the game knocked, I can last a little longer haha.”

This is an extremely useful trick that can give you the time you need to hold on until your teammates arrive to rescue. While it’s an expensive option, it’s worth it to stay in the game and increase your chances of victory.
