Fortnite season 5 week 5 challenge: Dig up gnomes from Fort Crumpet and Pleasant Park

Fortnite’s season 5, week 5 challenges are live, and this week, you’ll be sent on a quest to find a batch of garden gnomes. There are actually a few gnome-related challenges, but the first one you can attempt requires you to dig up gnomes from Fort Crumpet and Pleasant Park. Do not confuse this challenge with the other one for collecting gnomes from Fort Crumpet and Holly Hedges, as they are two separate quests (you must complete this one first before unlocking the rest).

For this challenge, you must find all four gnomes — two at Pleasant Park and two at Fort Crumpet. In this guide, we’ll show you exactly where to find all four, along with tips to make it as easy as possible for you. Here’s where to dig up gnomes from Fort Crumpet and Pleasant Park in Fortnite.

Gnome locations

Below, we’ll show you the locations of all four gnomes. Keep in mind that there are two in each location, and they can be dug up in any order. The other thing to note is that these locations are extremely busy because of the challenge, so we absolutely recommend attempting it with a squad. You’ll be glad you did. It doesn’t appear like there is only one of each gnome, which means you can dig one up even if someone else has already done so.

(We landed around several other players and they all seemed to be digging for gnomes, but more testing might be needed to reach a final conclusion.) Nonetheless, head to each spot with a squad and you’ll be just fine. Gnomes are indicated by little mounds of dirt, so slash it with your pickax to uncover them. We’ll include the gnomes’ locations on the map, as well as a screenshot of their positions in-game.

Pleasant Park — first gnome

The first gnome is found in the backyard of a house on the north side of Pleasant Park. It’s in the northeastern corner of a fenced area in the back.

Pleasant Park — second gnome

The next gnome in this area is found in the center section of grass on the eastern side (just northeast of where it says “Pleasant Park” on the map).

Fort Crumpet — first gnome

Moving onto Fort Crumpet, the first gnome is found on the northern side on the ground level, under a wooden platform by the stone wall.

Fort Crumpet — second gnome

As for the final one, it’s also on ground level, but on the western side of the area not far from the previous gnome.

Once you’ve got all four, you’ll gain credit for completing the challenge along with 20,000 XP.

Surviving in Fortnite and securing a Victory Royale takes skill and luck. Getting better at Fortnite requires a knowledge of the playing field and a drive to outlast your opponents, but none of that matters if you aren't picking up the right weapons. Building a loadout that suits your playstyle and managing your inventory as the match progresses is key to snagging a win. You don't want to be caught in a long-range battle against someone on a mountaintop without a solid rifle on hand, and you certainly don't want to find yourself inside a close-quarters building without an SMG or shotgun.

Our guide to the best weapons in Fortnite breaks down rarity types and what they mean, the most effective arms in each weapon category, and tips for how to use them. Chapter 4, Season 2 brought a lengthy list of changes to the Fortnite arsenal -- including new weapons and the return of some fan favorites.
