Fortnite Season 5: how to clear all three gnome challenges

The fifth week of Fortnite Season 5 brings three separate challenges that involve digging up, locating, and burying garden gnomes.

While Fortnite players might be preparing themselves for the inevitable New Year’s Day celebrations, it might be worth spending some time clearing three of this week’s challenges.

Week 5 of the current season brings three different gnome-related challenges to complete.

And while the challenges do tell you which areas you need to visit, the exact locations may be a bit tricker to find.

Where to dig up Fortnite gnomes in Fort Crumpet and Pleasant Park?

The first challenge requires you to unearth four gnomes. Two of them are buried in Fort Crumpet, while the rest are in Pleasant Park.

We recommend heading to Pleasant Park first, which is in the northwest region of the map, south of Stealthy Stronghold.

Be on the lookout for piles of dirt that are glowing bright blue, as that’s where the gnomes are buried. To dig them up, just hit the dirt piles with your pickaxe.

The first gnome is near a small tree somewhere in the middle of the area. Head north from the football field and you should see it.

The second is further north by the red timber house, close to the wooden fence.

Fort Crumpet’s a bit harder to find as it isn’t marked on the map. If you’re unfamiliar with it, it resembles an abandoned castle and is in the far northwest region, specifically northwest of Sweaty Sands and southwest of Coral Castle.

Once you get there, look along the west side wall for gnome number three. You should spot it near a corner.

The last one is along the northern wall, also in a corner.

Where to collect Fortnite gnomes in Fort Crumpet and Holly Hedges?

With the first challenge out of the way, you can now look for gnomes that aren’t buried but simply hidden.

Once again, there’s only four and you should already be in Fort Crumpet to find the first two.

When you find one, be sure to walk up to it and hold down the button prompt for it to count towards the challenge.

The first is on the ground floor inside the central tower, underneath the stairs. The gnomes stick out like a sore thumb so you shouldn’t have to worry about overlooking them.

The second one is on the eastern side of the fort inside the shop, behind the checkout area.

Your next destination is Holly Hedges, with the third gnome in between the three potted plants behind the central building.

The last one is in the northern part of the area, by the big holiday tree behind the archway. You should spot it through the fence.

Where to bury Fortnite gnomes in Pleasant Park or Retail Row?

With the gnomes collected, your last task is to bury two of them in either Pleasant Park or Retail Row.

Either area will do but, if you’re still in Holly Hedges, we recommend heading northeast back to Pleasant Park since it’s closer than Retail Row.

To bury the gnomes, once again look for piles of dirt that are glowing blue and hold down the button prompt when near them.

The first spot is somewhere in the centre of Pleasant Park. Look for a nearby tree (not the holiday one) and green bench if you’re struggling to find it.

The second spot is in front of the brick house in the northwest, right under a tree.

Don’t worry about trying to clear all three challenges within one match, but if you’re aiming to do them as quickly as possible, the route we’ve provided is your best bet.
