The Small Shield Potion takes 2 seconds to consume, and upon consumption grants 25 Shield to a maximum of 50. They cannot be consumed while moving. They drop in stacks of 3 with a maximum stack size of six (formerly ten), and can be found in Floor Loot, Chests, Supply Llamas, Supply Drops, and Ammo Boxes.[1]

  • Small Shield Potions can be thrown by holding the ADS button and tapping the Use button like other healing items.
  • Use two of them before a Shield Potion for full shield. If you use the Shield Potion before, the Small Shield will be unavailable to use until the shield will be under 50.

  • Small Shield Potions are the longest lasting item that was not in the initial launch of Fortnite in Season 1.
  • In Creative, when the max shield for players is increased or decreased beyond 100 points the Small Shield Potion can heal up to 50% of the new max shield size instead of only 50 points. For example, for 150 max shield, players can get up to 75 shield points from Small Shield potions, or for 50 max shield, players can only get up to 25 points from these.
