Looking for a shield boost for you or your squad? Here's where to find a Shield Keg in Fortnite Chapter 3, Season 1.

Shield Kegs are the latest shield item to be added into Fortnite. Their usefulness exceeds that of your standard Shield Potion simply because it allows you to boost up your whole squad. The keg is capable of restoring shields from 0 to 100, making it a perfect complement to the newly added Med-Mist.

The tricky part is, it can also restore the shields of your enemies too. You'll want to make sure you're using it in a safe and secure place. If things are looking a little dicey, you might need to find one in a pinch.

So, where exactly can you find a Shield Keg?

Thankfully, Epic Games haven't been stingy when it comes to places you can pick up a Shield Keg. For the most part, these items can be found as ground loot, in Chests, and also in Supply Drops. While these finds are pretty random by nature, there are more guaranteed methods of getting hold of a keg.

Players can also exchange Gold Bars for Shield Kegs from Lt. John Llama and The Scientist.

You'll find Lt. John Llama at the Llama Homestead, just to the southwest of Crackshot's Cabin. As for The Scientist, you'll find him wandering around the northern compound of Sanctuary. So, if you're short on time but rich in gold, head to these NPCs to pick up a Shield Keg.
