One of the more interesting challenges for Week 6 of Season 7 in Fortnite Battle Royale requires players to ‘search Chilly Gnomes’ that can now be found around the map.

The official challenges went live on Thursday, January 10, and include everything from dealing damage with different weapons to throwing an Ice Puck 150 meters or more. In this guide, though, we’ll be concentrating on Chilly Gnomes.

The task is simple – locate seven Chilly Gnomes and ‘search’ them, which basically means you have to interact with it like you would with a chest or supply drop.

Twitter @TheZenrackThe gnomes have been frozen in cubes of ice.

The only really tricky part is finding the Chilly Gnomes in the first place. They’re well hidden and could easily be missed if you don’t know what you’re looking for. Once you’re close enough, though, you should hear a giggling noise that makes their position easier to pinpoint.

With that in mind, we’ve put together a map of all the Chilly Gnome locations that we’ve found and been made aware of so far. The map will be updated if we find more gnomes, but the locations shown are enough to get the job done.

You have to search a total of seven Chilly Gnomes to complete the challenge and there is no limit on how many you can search in a single game. If you’re in a hurry, we’d advise you to plan out your landing spot so you can search as many as possible each game.

Once you’ve searched one of the bearded little men, it will disappear. This means that you can’t simply search the same one seven times across seven different games.

Remember to complete any game where you’ve searched a Chill Gnome. If you leave before being eliminated (or winning the match) your challenge progress might not be saved.

How to compete in Fortnite’s first Box Fight Tournament: date, prizes

Fortnite is about to launch its first-ever Box Fight Tournament, a creative 1v1 competition in an arena designed by winners of last month’s Princess Castle Creative Contest. If you’re interested in competing, here’s everything you need to know.

Fortnite is a competitive game at heart, but it’s also a wonderful platform for creative players. It’s the reason why the creative mode is so popular. Players can build their own islands and share them with others.

Last month, Fortnite celebrated its third birthday by hosting the Princess Castle Creative Contest. Essentially, players had to create and submit their own version of a Box Fight map.

For those who don’t know, Box Fighting is when two players are fighting within one tile of each other and inside a box. It’s unique in the sense that it combines competitive and creative skills.

Two players named HassanFTN and Shride won the contest. Their arena, named “Island of Dreams” (9005-6737-3429), was chosen to be showcased in the first official Box Fight Tournament.

How to compete in the Box Fight Tournament

To compete in the Box Fight Tournament, all you need to do is look for the Box Fight Tournament LTM on the main menu once it’s available.

However, there is an eligibility requirement. Players will need to have reached Open League (Division II) in Arena before the tournament begins. Don’t stress if you haven’t though. It’s very easy to do and will only take a couple of games.

The format is pretty straightforward. Players will duke it out in a one on one Box Fight against other players in their region.

It will follow a traditional tournament structure with multiple rounds. The more rounds you win, the higher you will climb. The player with the most wins at the end of the tournament is the winner.

Unfortunately, there hasn’t been any news on potential prizes yet. However, it will probably follow a similar system used in Wild Wednesdays. Keep in mind that these aren’t final, and they will be updated once more information is available.

Box Fighting requires calculated attacks and solid defense.

When does the Box Fight Tournament start?

Fortnite players don’t need to wait long. The Box Fight Tournament begins on Wednesday, October 28, which means it’s only one sleep away.

However, that also means if you haven’t ranked up enough in Arena to be eligible, you’ll need to hop in and get started before it’s too late.

Box Fighting is an important skill in Fortnite. In many ways, it’s what separates the wolves from the sheep.

If you’ve mastered it, the tournament is a good way to test your skills. Don’t be disheartened if you haven’t though. Taking part in the tournament is a good way to improve.
