Fortnite Chapter 5: Yellow Circle [All To Understand]

Uncover the location of powerful items by understanding what the yellow circle means using my guide.

Yellow circles can be spotted on the map in Chapter 5 of Fortnite. These circles do not indicate players that you’ve put bounties upon but actually hint towards the location of a powerful item. Of course, the location that gets tracked on the map is actually the player who is carrying the item.

Key Takeaways
  • Yellow circles are a new visual indicator in the latest chapter of Fortnite.
  • These indicate the location of the player who is carrying a Society Medallion.
  • There can be multiple yellow circles, as there are many medallions in Fortnite.
  • You can hunt down players using the yellow circles and take the medallion for yourself.

What Is The Yellow Circle

There are Society Medallions, which have been introduced in the latest chapter of Fortnite. These are extremely powerful defensive items that allow players to regenerate their shields. You can basically carry this item and regenerate your shield for the rest of the match.

However, there is one disadvantage to using these medallions. Your approximate location will be revealed on the map as a big yellow circle. It means that players who carry the medallion are putting a permanent bounty on their heads and are inviting action. So, every time you spot a yellow circle on the map, it is actually the location of a player carrying a medallion.

I personally really enjoy the medallion since I can invite action to myself while also having the ability to regenerate my shield. Since the public lobbies are mostly filled with bots now, the medallions allow me to get hunted by real players. While you’re at it, I strongly recommend checking out my in-depth review of Fortnite, which covers its rich history and impact on the Battle Royale genre.

Chapter 5 of Fortnite brings a completely new arsenal of weapons with amazing customization options. There are new landing spots on the map as well. As usual, more collaborations have also occurred, and you can now interact with new NPCs like Peter Griffin.

This concludes my guide on what the yellow circle means in Chapter 5 of Fortnite. I hope the guide helped you understand the importance of these yellow circles. Let me know in the comments below if you’re enjoying the latest chapter of Fortnite!
