We’re now in week 5 of Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 5, which means we have a whole new set of weekly challenges to tackle. These tasks provide a great opportunity to earn XP on a regular basis and unlock new skins.
While last week’s challenges focused on tomatoes, the theme for Week 5 revolves around Gnomes. One new Epic Quest requires you to dig up Gnomes from Fort Crumpet and Pleasant Park. Here’s how you can find them.
Where to dig up Gnomes in Fort Crumpet and Pleasant Park
You need to dig up four buried gnomes from the two locations in order to complete this challenge. Keep an eye out for mounds of dirt in the ground that will glow when you approach them.
After you’ve found one of these dirt mounds, you just need to hit it with your pickaxe to collect the gnome. Once you’ve dug one up, you can rotate to the location of the next mound and repeat the process there.
You will come across some Gnomes on the ground floor of Fort Crumpet. These aren’t too difficult to spot as the location is small and there normally isn’t a lot of player traffic. We recommend that you land here and then collect them before rotating to Pleasant Park.
Once you arrive at the next free v bucks generator location, you’ll need to comb the parts of the area that are covered in grass. You can find one near the center of the park and another one is by a fence in the garden of a house that you can find on the west side.
YouTuber wgwYT went over the locations of all four Gnomes in Fort Crumpet and Pleasant Park in the video below.
After you’ve dug up all four Gnomes from these areas, you will have successfully completed the Buried Gnomes in Fortnite Week 5 challenge. There is another task that has you dig up Gnomes at Holly Hedges as well, so you can head over there to collect some.
Quite a few of the tasks this week are Gnome themed. Another challenge requires you to bury two Gnomes in either Pleasant Park or Retail Row free v bucks generator. These are some of the easiest ones to complete, and you can get them done in a single match by landing in the right spot.
The more difficult weekly challenges require you to take on greater dangers, such as eliminating 50 IO Guards. These are worth tackling since they provide high XP rewards, so be sure to try completing all of them before time runs out!
