The shield barrel in Fortnite Chapter 3 is a brand new item that can greatly reverse the situation of crossfire. Being teased for the first time in the trailer for Chapter 3, the shield barrel sprays healing juice in the radius around the barrel, like a completely crazy college party.
Also known as Shield Sprinkler, this new item can provide more shield healing per second than any other shield item. For duo, trio or squad matches where your entire team needs to improve, this is absolutely incredible.
However, finding a Shield Keg may be more difficult than making an IRL bucket yourself. That’s why we solved the trouble for you. We have listed all the ways and locations where you can find Shield Kegs in Fortnite Chapter 3.
Shield Keg Location: Lt John Llama and The Scientist
Two NPCS will sell you a Shield Keg on the Fortnite map: Lt. John Llama and The Scientist.
Lt. John Llama is located in a place called Llama Homestead southwest of Logjam Lumberyard. The scientist is located at one of the seven outposts southwest of the refuge. Check the map below to see the exact location of the two NPCs.

Alternatively, shield barrels can be found as rare items in loot boxes, or as ground loot scattered on the map, but this is much rarer. Supply drops also have the opportunity to provide Shield Kegs, so if one drops near you, it is usually best to put it away.
Is Shield Keg a good treatment program?
Shield Kegs provides up to 100 points of shield health, which can defeat any Slurp Juice or Slurp Splash item. All you need to do is throw the Shield Keg on the ground and stand within its sprinkler radius within 10 seconds of keeping it active.
This means that an effective strategy is to drop the Shield Keg when your squad assembles, and keep it within its radius when you engage the enemy team. Even if you are injured, this will allow your treatment to continue. The only time you really want to disperse is when the enemy team throws explosives at you or a car tries to rush through the team.
