What is a mini in Fortnite?

Fortnite small shield potion

In Fortnite, a "mini" is a small shield potion, which is a healing item in Battle Royale. If you consume a mini, your shield increases by 25 but stops at 50 and can only heal your shield to 50% of the maximum value.

While minis were not included in the initial release, Fortnite released the shield potion in season 1, and it is now one of the longest-running items available. Fortnite Battle Royale gamers (or loopers) can find minis in various places, such as chests, supply drops, floor loot, supply llamas, and ammo boxes.
