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.

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.
