Fortnite: Where to Find Shadow Bombs & Shield Bubbles

Some items are finally returning to Fortnite! Here’s where you can find the Shadow Bombs and the Shield Bubbles in Fortnite.

With how many items and weapons Epic Games have made for Fortnite, some are bound to be temporarily removed, or “vaulted”. However, that means they can make a comeback.

And look no further than the two items making a return. Shield Bubbles and Shadow Bombs have been stuck in the vault for some time now. Fortunately, Fortnite players can start using them again, if they can find them.

What Is the Shadow Bomb in Fortnite?

The Shadow Bomb is one of the uncommon Utility items in Fortnite, which allows players to go invisible for a few moments.

Throwing a Shadow Bomb below your character will envelop you in a dark cloud, granting invisibility, alongside increased movement speed, and the ability to double jump as well as jump off walls.

It was last seen before version 10.00, back in 2019. So, it’s fair to say that it’s been a long time since we last saw it.

What is the Shield Bubble in Fortnite?

The Shield Bubble is a Utility item that creates an invulnerable bubble around the point of impact when thrown.

Shield Bubbles can be attached to anything and everything, aside from other players, meaning you can make a mobile Shield Bubble using a vehicle.

Neither projectiles inside nor outside of the Shield Bubble can go through the wall of the bubble, but players can walk through it. You can destroy it by hitting the device inside, or it will disappear in 30 seconds.

While both variants function similarly, the Epic variant gives a Hop Rock-like effect, allowing players to have lower gravity while in the bubble. This means you can jump higher and further.

It’s worth noting that these locations aren’t the only places that Shadow Bombs can be found, but the best places to find the item.

Shadow Bombs can be found in Chests, Supply Drops, or as floor loot. You should try and find Shadow Bombs in the locations below.

Since it’s an uncommon drop, you’re likely to find it easily. You can hold up to six Shadow Bombs at any one time.

Once again, we need to mention that these aren’t the only locations players can find the Shield Bubble, but rather the best places where you’ll likely find one.

Shield Bubbles can be found in Chests, Supply Drops, or rarely as Floor Loot. We recommend looking for Shield Bubbles in the locations below.

Since Shield Bubbles are a Rare and Epic item, they’ll be harder to get a hold of than Shadow Bombs. However, opening chests often should get you a couple of Shield Bubbles.
