UPDATE: So far, very few people have claimed to hear these Dinosaur sounds, adding to suspicion that it could be fake.

Check out the clip below and decide for yourself. The Dinosaur_Park game file is likely unrelated.

In yet another mysterious Fortnite event, players have started hearing what sounds very much like dinosaurs while traversing the map.

On August 24, a massive purple cube appeared on the map, beamed down from the lighting bolts in sky, and fans are trying to piece together what it all means.

Now, a day later, dinosaur noises can be heard when in the the Salty Springs area of the map.

There is no physical dinosaur apparent, however it would tie in with the ‘Worlds Collide’ slogan for Season 5, which sees lots of different time zones come mix together.

The strange dinosaur noise is likely linked in some way to the mysterious purple cube, which some believe to be a form of portal through time.

Data miners also leaked a game file from Fortnite recently, with the description “Dinosaur_Park”.


At the moment though, these are all just pieces of the puzzle, without anything to link them together yet.

Some players are hopeful for a new map location to replace Wailing Woods, perhaps named ‘Jurrasic Jungle’, which could of course explain dinosaur noises.

Whatever it is, the conclusion to season 5 and beginning of season 6 is shaping up to be a very eventful time in the popular battle royale game, and Epic Games always seem to have a few surprises up their sleeves.

Fortnite Season 4 might be new, but an old enemy, the infamous gnome, is up to his usual antics. This means there are more secret challenges to complete. Here’s how to do them.

Fortnite’s secret challenges might be a small addition, but they’re welcome ones that keep players on their toes. It’s always nice to get one-up on that pesky gnome, but more importantly, players receive a decent amount of experience for completing them.

Fortnite Season 4 introduced a lot of new things, but it also added two new more secret challenges. They offer a modest 10,000 experience each, which makes them a nice way to boost your level. 

If you want to complete them but aren’t willing to invest the time and patience to figure it all out, we’ve got you covered.

Fortnite Season 4’s Secret Challenges all revolve around this pesky gnome.

Cleanse Tanks

The first challenge is located in Slurpy Swamp, and it’s very easy to do. 

  • Naturally, the first step is to make your way over to Slurpy Swamp.
  • Once you’re there, make your way to the main building and look for the two large tanks lying around.
  • You’ll notice that their tops are missing, which is intentional.
  • Jump inside and take a dip to cleanse them. It’s as simple as that.

The tanks are side-by-side, although they’ll look more green and gnarly compared to the picture above.


Luckily, the second challenge is in Slurpy Swamp as well. However, it’s a little trickier to spot than the first.

  • First, head to the northern side of the main building. It’s the same one you were in for the previous challenge.
  • Next, look for a wall with a conveniently-placed hole.
  • The insufferable gnome who has been playing games with us this whole time will be hidden inside. 
  • To draw him out, all you need to do is walk up towards him. If you get close enough, he’ll panic and launch himself into the distance.

That’s all there is to it. If you managed to complete them both, you’ll find yourself 20,000 experience points closer to a higher level.

Many players tend to stumble upon these challenges and finish them without even realizing it. However, others aren’t so lucky, and while they aren’t necessarily hard to do, they can be a pain to find.

Who knows where we’ll run into that pesky gnome next, but it’s inevitable that we will again in when the next series of challenges have been released.

Until then, you might want to go back and finish any of the others you’ve missed.
