Fortnite Shield Bubble: How to Create a Moving Dome of Protection02.09.2019
Did you know that the protective dome when using the Shield Bubble can move? Thanks to the streamer we learned about this possibility and it’s like everything is brilliant and simple!
Fortnite Battle Royale patch v10. 20 brought to the game Shield Bubble along with Pandora Rift Zone map changes and some General changes and fixes.
I’m sure the appearance of the Shield Bubble is an attempt to set the balance of the game against BRUTE. Until that moment, there was no effective defense against it in close combat. But it was quickly discovered that it had other uses. It didn’t take players long to learn how to use it to avoid falling damage, but it looks like it can now also be used to spin between circles.
In a post to the FortniteBR subreddit, user Nicorazi showcased a highlight from streamer ‘Spectro’, who was competing in a Trios games when he deployed the new tactic.

The streamer had one teammate in a bush and quickly threw the shield bubble at them. As the bubble’s emitter spawned on the bush, the shield bubble became attached to that player – allowing it to become a mobile dome instead of a static one.
Of course, the tactic only works when you have Bush and the subject of the Shield bubble.
As it has been shown, it’s clearly a brilliant strategy to pull off and will help you rotate with some protection which could give you a huge advantage towards the end of the game.
However, though, this isn’t the perfect tactic as enemy players can still penetrate the bubble shield by running through it and there is only a 30-second time limit on its protection, so you will have to be pretty aware of your surroundings.
