Where To Find The Shield Keg In Fortnite

According to ShiinaBR, Shield Kegs can be found in chests, as floor loot, in supply drops, or by purchasing them from The Scientist and Lt. John Llama for Gold Bars.

To get your hands on the new item as quickly as possible, save up your gold bars and visit either The Scientist at ‘The Sanctuary’ or Lt. John Llama, who is just south of Logjam Lumberyard, both of which can be seen on the map below.

Otherwise, getting the Shield Keg is just based on pure luck as they will drop randomly from chests, floor loot, or supply drops.

How To Use The Shield Keg In Fortnite

Once you get your hands on the Shield Keg simply throw the item on the ground and stand in the healing mists’ circle to refill your shield. Both you and your teammates can stand inside of the Shield Keg’s radius to go from 0 to 100 shield. But you must be careful as it will also refill your enemies shield if they are within the radius.
