How to damage Guardian Shields to collect dropped microchips in Fortnite
It may take a while to complete this Oathbound quest if you find another player who has a Guardian Shield and uses it. However, there is a quick and easy way to complete the challenge.
To damage Guardian Shields and collect dropped microchips in Fortnite, you must first find your own Guardian Shield, deploy it, and then shoot it. Microchips will then drop around the deployed shield and you can collect one to complete this stage of the Oathbound quest.
We have more information on our Guardian Shield locations page, but generally speaking, you’ll find Guardian Shields most often in sworn chests. These are the large white chests found in the medieval-looking orange parts of the map.
You can also find Guardian Shields in normal chests, as floor loot, in supply drops, and by eliminating an enemy player who has one.
Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 4 is here! To help you get started with this heist-themed season, we have guides on how to alert a security camera, protect data from Forecast Towers, and destroy weakened security walls or doors. There’s also a new Victory Umbrella! In the meantime, learn what the best weapons are, the current boosts, how to get XP quickly, how to use the best PC builds, and earn a crown of victory.
To deploy a Guardian Shield, you must select it from your inventory, press the aim button, and then press the fire button. This will throw your shield to the ground, activating its barrier ready for you to shoot at.
When you’re done shooting the Guardian Shield to make it drop microchips, you can pick it up again. It will recharge with extra time in your inventory and you will know it is fully charged when there is no longer a countdown on the shield symbol in your inventory.
When opening Sworn Chests, keep an eye out for Ex-Caliber Rifles and Falcon Scouts, as they must be used to complete the weekly challenges, and are also found more frequently in Sworn Chests.
