How to get the Guardian Shield in Fortnite

This shield will definitely make you look ageless.

The Guardian Shield is a rare new utility item introduced in Fortnite Chapter Four: Season One that has been designed with the aesthetic of The Ageless in mind. Its functionality is very similar to Reinhardt's Barrier Field from the popular game Overwatch. This means that it can be used to protect the wearer and their allies from incoming attacks, making it an essential piece of equipment for anyone who values their safety and survival. Whether you're a fan of The Ageless or simply looking for a practical way to protect yourself, the Guardian Shield is definitely worth considering.

How does the Guardian Shield work in Fortnite

By pressing the primary fire button, users can activate the rectangular barrier to block up to 1,000 points of damage. The shield starts with 2,000% Energy, which decreases by one point per second, but weapon damage is halved when it impacts the shield. When the shield is not active, it takes five seconds to regenerate the lost shield. If the shield's energy is fully depleted, it will take ten seconds for it to fully regenerate.

In addition to serving as a protective barrier, the Guardian Shield can also be thrown down as portable cover. When used in this manner, the shield has 50 Energy that decreases by one each second before it is disabled. The best part? The Guardian Shield is available for any user to pick up at any time, making it a useful tool for players looking to gain an advantage in combat.
