Fortnite: Apply Shields or Healing items at Shanty Town or The Orchard

It's time for another Fortnite challenge and this time, you'll need to boost your shields and heal up in different locations around the map.

The Fortnite: Season 2 Location Domination challenges continue this week with a tricky challenge that involves taking some damage. Whether you jump from a height or let an opponent land a few shots, you'll need to take damage then boost your shields or use a healing item in either Shanty Town or The Orchard.

It would be a good idea to grab a few weapons before heading out as these areas will probably get busy and there's a good chance you'll be constantly under fire as other players will be looking for weakened enemies.

Fortnite: Apply Shields or Healing items at Shanty Town or The Orchard

Shanty Town and The Orchard have unique shield and healing items you can use to boost shields and repair damage during a match. Shanty Town can be found North of The Rig and you can destroy Slurp Barrels to regain shields.

At The Orchard, as the name suggests, you can forage Apples that will heal you after taking damage. The only downside to this challenge is that you need to take damage for the healing items to work, which leaves you vulnerable to players who don't care that you're trying to complete a challenge.

Build two or three flights of stairs and jump off them to take a little bit of damage that you can easily heal using the Apples.
