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.

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.

Where to find the secret cave in Fortnite
A player drives a motorcycle through Reckless Railways in Fortnite.

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.

The secret cave is tucked along the eastern coast of the map to the northeast of Hazeyhills and southeast of Grand Glacier as seen on the map above.

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.
