Most players think that Epic has reduced the number of shields in Fortnite. This clip comes close to proving the theory true.

Epic finally released Fortnite patch notes for the first time in Chapter 2. Still, they kept them vague and didn’t get into any of the specific changes they were making to the game.

Despite their recent communication, we’ve gone several updates without knowing whether particular elements had stayed the same or if Epic tweaked the numbers. This is no more evident than on the topic of shields.

Has Epic reduced the number of shields in Fortnite? It certainly feels that way. The methodology behind reducing shields is understandable as well. Epic wants us to go fishing.

One unlucky Fortnite player brought this issue to the forefront with a compilation on Reddit. u/Brogan0 posted a two-minute video of a game in which he opened 24 chests with 0 mini shields.

For those keeping track, Brogan0 opened 17 chests before seeing his first big shield. Opening t24 chests in a single game is a feat by itself – let alone opening so many without finding any minis.

It wasn’t until Brogan0 killed a player that he found his first mini shield. That’s singular; as in one mini.

Has Epic reduced the spawn rate of shields? We can’t tell for sure. With a clip like this, though, it’s hard to argue that they didn’t change something.
