Fortnite: How To Regain Health As A Shadow


Fortnite Shadow Zombies

Fortnitemares 2020 has finally brought the spooks to Fortnite and also a new mechanic that lets you play on after you’ve been eliminated by the name of Shadows.

These characters have their own abilities and just 100 HP until you are eliminated for good, but how can you regain health while playing as a Shadow?

Well, by eating stuff.

Any item that is dropped by players can be consumed by pressing your standard reload button (square for PS4) for a small HP boost. You only ever get 5 HP for every individual item you drop, it doesn’t matter if the gun is a Mythic or something also rare. Yes, you can consume Shadow Midas’ Drum Gun.

Again, this can be anything that is on the ground: ammo, traps, weapons — you name it, you can consume it.

It also seems to be the case that you can regain HP while playing as a Shadow by using your Scream ability, which also marks normal players for you and your fellow Shadows.

Fortnite: Chapter 2 – Season 4 is free-to-play on PC via the Epic Games Store, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and Android.
