Shields are one of the most important factors in Fortnite. You could get out of many sticky situations thanks to the amount of shields that you have.
While the most viable option to fill your shields is by jumping into the waters near Slurpy Swamps, there are other ways too.
You have a tonnes of shield potions lying around in Fortnite. But where do you exactly find these shield potions.
Where to find shield potions in Fortnite?
There are two ways in which you can get your hands on these shield potions.
First of all, you can get them through looting chests in Fortnite. If you've been playing Fortnite for a while now, you'll know how these chests look like.
If you're new to the game, it looks like a wooden treasure chest. Something that you've seen in pirate movies. You're bound to find at least a small shield pot in every chest that you loot.
Some chests reveal large pots too. When it comes to the small pots, they fill up about 25% of your shields, and you can only use them to bring your shields up to 50% and not more.
The big pot fills your shield by 50% and you can use them whenever you want to. The maximum shield that you can have is at 100%. You can't overcharge it.
Other than that, you can also get shield pots from Mending Machines around the island. The small pot costs around 25 gold while the big pot costs 400 gold. Weird disparity but it is what it is.
Here's a map showing you the locations of the Mending Machines on the Fortnite island.
All you need to do is consume four shield pots. If this isn't an easiest way to get that 30,000 XP then I don't know what is.
