Fortnite Guide: How To Find the Hidden Gnome

Fortnite map is pretty big. And when you focus only on the mission, it’s very difficult to focus on learning the location and map’s features. That is why the developers of the game came up with a challenge where you need to find hidden gnomes. By looking for the gnomes, you get a great chance to explore the location and to learn how to work with the map in Fortnite. So, the new week, the new challenge. And now we will help you to find the gnome that is hidden between a “fancy view, a wooden shack, and a big house”. Ready? Let’s start!

What Does It Mean “Fancy View, a Wooden Shack, and a Big House”?

When you are given the task of finding a gnome, as a rule, you are given a hint that indicates its location. Sometimes, this is obvious and understandable almost immediately, and sometimes you need to work hard to solve the riddle. That’s why let’s start from the very beginning — “a fancy view”. As you might have guessed, this prompt should tell us about some unusual and beautiful places. Let’s open the map and try to imagine where it could be. Look at the north-east of the map, there are a lot of beautiful landscapes where the land ends and the ocean starts.

The next step is to figure out where the “wooden snack” is located. It is much harder. If you have not met this wooden snack before in the game, it is difficult to find its location. Hence, we will tell you: it is “to the north-east over the other side of the road”. Finally, the last puzzle of our riddle — “a big house”. It is to the south-east of the map. Believe us, the big house looks exactly like it sounds, therefore, it is hard to miss.

The Road to The Gnome

On this point, we have already known where the gnome is located on the map. But how can we get there? In this section, we will try to explain to you the path to it.

Once you are in place, you need to climb a hill between three locations — “fancy view, a wooden shack, and a big house”. Your guideline is the yellow flowers that completely cover this hill. It is not easy to explain how to find the gnome on the hill but believe us, he is here! As soon as you find the gnome, do not forget to interact with him. Remember, this is an important condition for the challenge. After that, he will disappear forever, and you will not see him again. You will be left alone, okay, not alone, but with a whopping 52,000 XP bonuses.
