While Medallions can offer players very interesting benefits, it is not without risk. If you want to grab Medallions, then you should understand the serious downside to them: you will be marked on the map for your enemies to find. The more of them you carry, the more precise that location will be, making you something of a beacon for your opponents.

You can get Medallions by defeating the bosses in Fortnite. Oscar, Nisha, Montague, Valeria, and Peter Griffin can all be found on the map and will drop a Medallion when defeated. Yes, Peter Griffin from Family Guy. These characters make up your location bosses for Chapter 5, Season 1. Their locations will be marked on the map at the start of every round. You will be able to see their Medallions in different locations and can go and find them if you wish. They are quite tough, and will often have lots of henchmen, so be careful.

The Medallion benefits are as follows, and stack as you hold more of them:

  • 1-2 Normal Medallions – +3 Shield per tick
  • 3 Normal Medallions – +6 Shield per tick
  • 4-5 Normal Medallions – +8 Shield per tick
  • 1-2 Max Shield Medallions – 110 Max Shield
  • 3 Max Shield Medallions – 140 Max Shield
  • 4-5 Max Shield Medallions – 200 Max Shield

So, if you just love firefights and want to give other players a reason to come to you, you know what to do. A good mix of Medallions and the right Augments could turn you into a big problem for other folks in the lobby.
