In a new weekly quest, players are asked to deploy the Guardian Shield 5 times. But what exactly is the Guardian Shield in Fortnite? Where would you even find the Guardian Shield and how would you use it? We have created this guide to help you understand the answers to these questions so you can complete various missions related to the Guardian Shield.
Where To Find The Guardian Shield In Fortnite
The first thing you will want to know is where exactly can you find a Guardian Shield in Fortnite. After all, it is impossible to complete any challenges or quests if you do not know how to find the shield in the first place. Down below is a list of locations where you could possibly find the Guardian Shield.
Guardian Shield Locations:
- The Citadel
- Breakwater Bay
- Anvil Square
- Shattered Slabs
- Faulty Splits
All in all, if you are looking for the Guardian Shield, your best bet is to be on the west side of the map. The western side of the map gives you the best chances to find the Guardian Shield. The eastern part of the map is okay for finding the Guardian Shield, while the north and south ends of the map should be avoided. Guardian Shields spawn in Oathbound Chests, which are the large white chests in Fortnite.
How To Use And Deploy The Guardian Shield
In Fortnite, there are two different ways of using the Guardian Shield. When you press the shoot button while holding the Guardian Shield, you will hold the shield in front of you. This will block projectiles coming your way. Although this is useful, this is not considered deploying the Guardian Shield.
To deploy the Guardian Shield, you will actually need to throw the shield. The shield will then create a massive barrier that enemies and even yourself cannot shoot past. This is useful to give yourself time to reload or quickly heal up during a gunfight. Deploying Guardian Shields is especially useful in the No Build mode of Fortnite.
