Shield Potion and Trap improvements in Fortnite Battle Royal

Fortnite Battle Royale Small Potion Update
Fortnite Battle Royale Small Potion Update

Prepare yourselves for a Battle Royale update that are improving trap usability and introducing the Small Shield Potion for the survivor on the go. This update will hit on Dec. 19, 8am ET (13:00 GMT).  The plan is to revisit a few of the traps going away in this update. There is a chance some of these traps may return at some point in a different state. There will be no downtime, and no update required.


  • Grants 25 Shield, to a maximum of 50.
  • Drops in stacks of 3 with a stack limit of 10.
  • Uncommon rarity.
  • Can be found in floor loot, treasure chests, and supply drops.
  • Consumed in 2 seconds.
  • Cannot be consumed while moving.


  • The Spike Trap, Wall Zapper, and Ceiling Zapper have been combined into a single “Damage Trap.”
    • When this trap is in placement mode, it will automatically swap between floors, walls, and ceilings.
  • The Launch Pad, Vertical Jump Pad, and Horizontal Jump Pad has been combined to just “Launch Pad.”
    • The Launch Pad can still only be placed on floors.
  • You can now switch between traps using the same key binding as “Change Building Material.”
  • The radial menu to select different traps has been removed.
