All Fortnite Season 6 Guardians Locations

Each of the Guardians patrol specific locations on the Fortnite map, and have full shields, along with some unique powers. This makes them particularly tricky to defeat in combat.

One example is the Guardian of the Fields, who is able to dash to dodge bullets and melee attacks during combat. We’ve listed their locations on the map below.

Aside from their special powers, the Guardians also make use of weapons that are capable of doing some serious damage to your shields. For that reason, we strongly recommend that you stock up on some high-tier gear before battling them.

Make sure that you bring along some shields and healing items in case you end up taking too much damage. Also make sure to keep an eye out for any enemy players within the vicinity, as you don’t want to get attacked from all sides.

You can get some very helpful drops from the Guardians that you take down, such as the Mythic Primal Shotgun from Guardian of the Spire, so be sure to visit them all!
