Fortnite: An Overview Of Medallions 

Fortnite introduced the Medallions in its new chapter 5 which allows players to take damage from their enemies.

Players can use the Medallions as a healing agent during combat with the enemies.

Similarly, Medallions were used as armor, which generates the shield around the player to counter the heavy attacks.

Likewise, players can only collect the Medallions after defeating one of the five society bosses in Fortnite.

Upon defeating the boss in the game, players can have access to the Medallions as a boss drop or loot.

Fortnite Medallions Update
In this new update of Fortnite, the game has brought changes to several things.

Moreover, the  Medallions come in five different variants and are named after a boss who drops it as a loot.

Among these Medallions, there are two variants; one is used to regenerate the shield for the players and the other is used to increase maximum shield capacity.

Thus, players should carry maximum Medallions to create a greater shield during the game.

In Fortnite, the Medallions no longer give you the maximum Shield Regen.

Besides that, the players can witness the circle indicating a Medallion holder has also become smaller in the game.

Since the circle has been smaller, it is easy for opponents to track your location, so remain stealthy during the game.

Additionally, there is a brief delay in time to start the shield regeneration process, and the regen rates are slightly reduced.

Strategic Shift And New Dynamics

After the game decided to reduce the effectiveness of the Medallion in its new update, players should reconsider their strategies.

Since players were using the Medallions as their primary defense mechanism, the altered mechanics in this update have caused trouble.

Likewise, players carrying Medallions as a valuable asset for survival, however, the change now provides risk.

Some players have expressed their frustration regarding the changes as the Medallions cannot heal.

While some of the other players have significantly highlighted the balance in the game.

With only the minimum effectiveness of Medallion, players now should survive in the treacherous realm of Fortnite without any reliable shield.

Epic Games has stated that the game has taken this step to address the concerns regarding the Medallion Overpower nature.

The Bottom Line

Fortnite has not only changed the Medallion nature in the game, rather the new update brings alternations from several perspectives.

With this new update, the whole Fortnite community is experiencing a significant change in gameplay dynamics regarding Medallions and Weapons.

Moreover, Epic Games took this decision to promote balance in the game as Medallion was considered over powered.
