How to obtain Society Medallions in Fortnite
In order to get a Society Medallion, you’ll have to defeat one of the five bosses on the island. Taking down a boss won’t be an easy task, so you’ll have to come prepared with a lot of weapons and ammo. No matter which boss you choose to fight, they all have a huge health bar and are able to replenish their shield. In addition, they are surrounded by a whole lot of guards who will also try and defend their turf.
Throughout a match, you’ll be able to see if a boss hasn’t been defeated as their unique Society Medallion will appear on your map if they’re still standing.
The bosses in Chapter 5 Season 1 are:
- Peter Griffin – At Snooty Steppers
- Oscar – At Lavish Lair
- Montague – At Grand Glacier
- Nisha – At Fencing Fields
- Valeria – At Reckless Railways
Once you’ve eliminated a boss, they will drop a Society Medallion which you can pick up and keep on your character for the remainder of your match. A Society Medallion will automatically regenerate your shield back to 100 throughout the entirety of your game. Your character will flash blue when this occurs.
However, possessing a Society Medallion comes with a risk. In exchange for this rather overpowered piece of kit, you will be marked on the map with an orange ring for everyone in the lobby to see your location.
Society Medallions can be stacked, replenishing your shield even faster. The only downside is that your location on the map will be more precise with the more Society Medallions you pick up.
