How to acquire gnomes

Before being able to bury gnomes across each location, you need to unlock stage 4 of Doggo’s requests. To do that, you must complete steps 1 to 3, which include:

After you’ve completed the first three stages listed above, you can move onto the fourth and final stage.

Where to bury gnomes in Pleasant Park

The easiest way to complete the challenge for burying gnomes is to land at one of the locations — either Pleasant Park or Retail Row. You only need to bury two gnomes, and each location features two spots for you to complete the request, four in total. In essence, this means you can land at one location and finish with the challenge without having to go to the other one. All you need to do is bury two gnomes, so visit each spot found in the area where you land to easily finish this challenge. Keep in mind that you can bury the gnomes in any order, giving you some flexibility.

Here are the spots where you can bury a gnome at Pleasant Park. Use the map images for reference.

Pleasant Park — first location

The first spot is found right in the center of Pleasant Park, to the south of the pavilion in the middle. Look for a mound of dirt on the eastern side of the center patch of grass.

Pleasant Park — second location

The next spot is to the north of the previous, next to a tree in front of a house. It’s found on the northwestern section of Pleasant Park next to the sidewalk.

Where to bury gnomes at Retail Row

If you decide to land at Retail Row instead, you’ll want to be aware of the spots where you can bury gnomes.

Retail Row — first location

The first location is found on the northwestern side of Retail Row in the backyard of one of the houses. Look for the mound right by a tree.

Retail Row — second location

The final spot is found south of the previous location on the southeastern side of Retail Row. It’s found next to the sidewalk by a massive plant. After you’ve buried two gnomes total, you’ll gain credit for completing the challenge, along with 20,000 XP.

Every time Fortnite changes up the map, it becomes a whole new experience when checking out the new points of interest (POIs) and best places to land. With chapter 5 bringing some of the most dramatic changes in the map's history, a ton of secrets are out there on the island waiting to be discovered, such as a very lucrative cave. Those who have managed to wander into this hidden alcove have been rewarded with a huge stash of loot, making it a well-guarded secret among those in the know. We can't guarantee you'll survive long enough to grab all the valuables inside, but knowing where the secret cave is will at least give you and your squad a fighting chance.

Fortnite Reality Augments: full list and how to use them
Fortnite Zero Builds key art.

Every new chapter of Fortnite is a massive event. While seasonal changes bring plenty of minor tweaks and additions, it's almost always when a new chapter rolls around that major overhauls or new mechanics are introduced. Fortnite Chapter 4 was no exception, and aside from the extreme changes the island underwent, it brought one very important change to gameplay that makes a huge difference when going for that elusive victory royal (it isn't easy to win Fortnite, after all).

Augments, well, augment the game. There are a few challenges that somewhat introduce what these are, but they leave out almost all the important details for you to find out on your own. Augments need to be considered, and deeply understood, not only for when you get them yourself but to know what new tricks your opponents could have up their sleeves. Before you get taken by surprise, here's a complete breakdown of how to unlock augments and how they work in Fortnite.
What are augments in Fortnite?
Augments, or Reality Augments, are a new perk system introduced into Fortnite. There are currently 20 augments in the game, but there are 32 total that cycle in and out with each Season. You can get access to multiple augments during a single match, but augments do not carry over after a match is finished, whether you win or lose. These perks can range from modifying certain weapon types to granting buffs for performing actions, and much more. There are no bad augments, so you will want to get as many as possible. Augments also have their own tab in your menu where you can see which ones you've had so far to track your progress using them all.
