How to gain shields using a Shield Keg in Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 1

Grab a keg and restore some shields!

Shield Kegs are a new item just introduced to Fortnite Chapter 3, Season 1, and already they are proving to be an invaluable item for teams looking to keep themselves topped up shields. How exactly are they used? Read on!

Shield Kegs are a deployable item in Fortnite, similar to Tents. Instead of storing items, however, Shield Kegs spray out shield-regeneration spray in a radius around the keg, restoring shields for any player they touch. Yes, this includes opponents.

Each Shield Keg has enough juice to bring players' shields from 0 to 100. Unfortunately, they cannot be picked up once placed, but they can be destroyed once players have finished with them so other players do not try to take advantage of a Keg that is still spraying.
