Fortnite Season 5 continues to progress with the challenges from Week 5 now being added to the game. While some of this week’s challenges are fairly straightforward, most of them are again Gnome-centric. Fortunately, if you’re looking to tick all of those Gnome-related challenges off your to-do list this week, we’re here to give you a hand.
In total, Fortnite will assign you three objectives in week 5 that involve gnomes. One will need you to dig them up and another will ask you to collect them through Fort Crumpet, Holly Hedges, and Pleasant Park. The last will then have to bury them again in Pleasant Park or Retail Row.
To get started, let’s talk about what you should watch out for when it comes to digging. Buried Gnomes will appear in the game as blue and glowing mounds of earth. When you travel to Fort Crumpet to find these little dudes buried, you should find them both on the ground floor of the compound. From there you’ll then want to head to Pleasant Park where you’ll find a bearded pal lying in the middle of this place while the second is in a garden in front of a house.
When you reach the second Gnome Challenge, you’ll then want to return to Fort Crumpet. The first of the two that you need to collect here is hidden under a staircase while the second will be held near the cash register in the gift shop. Both should be relatively easy to spot. The other two are then hidden away at Holly Hedges and are not too hard to find. The first will be in a garden south of this area while the next is near the holiday tree that appears in the center of this section.
Once you’ve dug up and retrieved these first Gnomes, the final challenge associated with these Lawn Decorations will require you to bury them for yourself. Yes, you dug them up only to push them back into the soil they came from. Fortunately, with this challenge, you can choose to bury the gnomes in Pleasant Park or Retail Row.
To keep things simple since we’ve covered this before, let’s specifically take a look at the Pleasant Park location. The first of these landfills is in a small earthen lot near the middle of the area. It’s next to a tree and in front of a park bench. The second can then be found next to a tree in the northwest corner of the location in front of a house. Keep an eye out for some visible dirt piles in both cases.
And that should be it! Again, there are a handful of additional challenges for Week 5, but you should be able to complete them on your own. Hope this quick guide should help you quickly complete Gnome tasks in Fortnite before these dudes inevitably make a comeback on the road.
