Fortnite season 5 week 5 challenge guide: Where to collect gnomes from Fort Crumpet and Holly Hedges

The third stage of Doggo’s Fortnite challenges during season 5 week 5 requires you to collect four garden gnomes across Fort Crumpet and Holly Hedges. This challenge is almost exactly the same as the first stage, which is for digging up garden gnomes — so don’t confuse the two. You must complete stages one and two before being able to make progress toward this one at stage three. As with most challenges, the game doesn’t tell you where to find the four gnomes, but luckily, we can fill you in on the locations of all of them.

In this guide, we’ll show you everything you need to know about collecting gnomes to complete this week’s challenge. Here’s where to collect gnomes from Fort Crumpet and Holly Hedges in Fortnite.

Gnome locations

Much like the first stage of Doggo’s requests, the gnomes in this challenge can be collected in any order. Just be aware that the two locations — Fort Crumpet and Holly Hedges — will likely be super busy because of the challenge. It’s best to attempt to collect gnomes with a squad so they can watch your back. Also, unlike the first stage, these gnomes do not need to be dug up. They can simply be collected by pressing Square on PlayStation, X on Xbox, and Y on Nintendo Switch.

Holly Hedges — First gnome

The first gnome is located in the outside section of the store in the middle of Holly Hedges. It’s sort of like the garden section of a large department store. The gnome is found cleverly hidden among the plants on the eastern side.

Holly Hedges — Second gnome

The next one is just north of the previous gnome. Make your way over to the festive, holiday-looking area and you’ll find the gnome next to some presents. (When using the map above, reference the red circle, not the blue waypoint.)

Fort Crumpet — First gnome

Next, make your way to Fort Crumpet, which is located on the northwestern side of the map, south of Coral Castle. This gnome is found inside the fort on the eastern side behind the cash register area. It’s close to a stack of souvenirs.

Fort Crumpet — Second gnome

For the final gnome, look for it in the center of the fort, behind a set of stairs. It’s on the ground level — the same as the previous gnome.

After you’ve collected all four gnomes (in any order), you’ll gain credit for completing the challenge and earn 20,000 XP for doing so. Now, you’ll only have one more Doggo quest left, which will have you bury the gnomes you just collected in various areas around the map.

How to damage opponents with the Lock On Pistol in Fortnite
The Lock On Pistol in Fortnite.

As part of a weekly challenge in Fortnite, players are tasked with dealing 200 damage with the Lock On Pistol. This challenge has caused some confusion, as acquiring the weapon isn't as consistent as players might have hoped. In this guide, we'll show you how to get your hands on the Lock On Pistol and how to deal 200 damage with it in Fortnite.
How to find the Lock On Pistol

First, you need to get your hands on the Lock On Pistol. Currently, the only known ways of finding one are by opening chests or collecting them from Supply Drops. The weapon isn't available from NPCs or any method just yet. This means you'll want to head to a high-traffic area like Mega City to find a bunch of chests. Keep in mind that Mega City will be busy, but there are plenty of chests available. If you want to play it safe, you can visit a different point of interest (POI). Keep opening chests until you get your hands on the Lock On Pistol.

How to survive storm phases carrying an Epic weapon in Fortnite
Character jumping while holding Epic weapon in Fortnite.

A new Fortnite challenge for surviving storm phases while carrying an Epic weapon has caused some confusion, as the quest's wording isn't exactly clear. Thankfully, the challenge is much easier than it seems, and once you know what to do, you can get through it relatively quickly. Here's how to survive storm phases while carrying an Epic weapon in Fortnite.
What is an Epic weapon?
Fortnite uses a rarity system with its weapons, which are denoted by colors. Purple weapons are Epic, but keep in mind you can utilize any weapon of higher rarity to complete this quest. As long as the weapon is at least Epic, you'll earn credit for surviving storm phases.
How to get an Epic weapon

There are several ways to get Epic weapons. One way is to simply find one from chests or as floor loot, but this isn't as reliable. You can also purchase Epic weapons from NPCs around the map. Nearly all main hubs have an NPC who sells weapons, so be sure to talk with them if you have the funds. Using an Upgrade Station is another solid option for collecting an Epic weapon, though it's expensive. Another option is to defeat the Highcard Boss found at Brutal Bastion, Shattered Slabs, and Mega City. Upon defeat, the Highcard Boss drops a Mythic Havoc Suppressed Rifle.

How to give specialist a command in Fortnite
Character interacting with NPC in Fortnite.

As part of Fortnite's Spring Breakout Daily Quests, players are tasked with giving a hired specialist character a command. Of course, the game doesn't specify how to do this exactly, leading to some confusion amongst the community. Thankfully, we've got everything you need to know about completing this new quest with ease in Fortnite.
How to hire a specialist

Specialist Characters are specific NPCs all around the map. If you pull up the quest itself, you'll actually see a map of all the Specialist Characters. Keep in mind that not all NPCs fall into this category, so be sure to look at the map. We like the one to the very north of Breakwater Bay as it's usually out of the way. Once you find them, you'll need to pay 200 Gold Bars to hire them. If you don't have the funds, be sure to play more and complete bounties as needed.
How to give a character a command
After you've hired the Specialist Character, they'll be on your side for the duration of the match. If you look at the top left side of the screen, you'll see an icon that represents the Follower Communications wheel. Press and hold left on the D-pad on console or the middle mouse button on PC to get this menu to appear. Once it does, you can pick from a list of commands such as wait or follow. To complete the quest, you simply need to issue one command and after the NPC does what you ask, you'll earn credit for completing it.
