Fortnite Season 5 has added several Week 5 challenges, and you’ll need to find gnomes at Fort Crumpet and Pleasant Park to complete them.

Another week of Fortnite Season 5 action means there’s a string of all-new challenges to complete to gain XP and help you progress to the next tier in your Battle Pass – and hopefully unlock some sweet new cosmetics along the way.

Some of these Week 5 challenges are easy, like searching 15 chests or ammo crates, while others might take you a bit longer to complete. We’ve put together a handy guide to eliminating 50 IO Guards which might help with the Legendary quest.

Weekly challenges often feature a theme of some sort, like Week 4’s tomato-inspired challenges. This week is no different, as three of the quests you’ll want to complete revolve around gnomes, gnomes, and more gnomes.

Gnomes have been a staple of Epic Games’ popular battle royale game for a long time, with many previous challenges requiring players to find them, destroy them, or even disarm gnome traps to save them (presumably so you can destroy them later).

They’re back for more in Week 5’s challenges, but this time you’ll actually have a total of three gnome-inspired quests to complete courtesy of the NPC Grimbles:

  • Dig up Gnomes from Fort Crumpet and Pleasant Park
  • Collect Gnomes from Fort Crumpet and Holly Hedges
  • Bury Gnomes in Pleasant Park or Retail Row

The first quest requires you to dig up four gnomes from Fort Crumpet and Pleasant Park, and we’ve explained how to do that below.

Buried gnomes appear in Fortnite as mounds of dirt in the ground, and they glow with blue light. Once you find them, you’ll need to hit them with your pickaxe and they’ll rise from the ground.

Gnomes can be found buried on the ground floor of Fort Crumpet. We found two of them when we visited. This is a small area to search, and is usually quiet, so it shouldn’t take you too long to locate them.

Over at Pleasant Park, you’ll want to search the grass-covered areas to find buried gnomes. We found one near the middle of Pleasant Park, and another hidden in the garden of a house to the west of this area.

You can see the gnome locations in Fort Crumpet and Pleasant Park on the map below:

Once you’ve dug up four gnomes, you’ll complete the first part of Grimbles’ challenge. The second part requires you to search 15 chests or ammo crates.

Epic Games tease more “exclusive” content coming for Fortnite Crew members

According to a brand-new leaked survey, Epic Games have been asking players what they might want to see added as a feature to the Fortnite Crew subscription service, hinting that they’re open to changing up what’s included in the future.

If you took a look at the Fortnite Crew subscription service and thought that it didn’t include enough or didn’t include much that you’d be interested in, Epic Games may be heeding those concerns.

According to Fortnite leaker ‘iFireMonkey,’ a brand-new survey sent out to Fortnite players might indicate that the developer might be open to changing up what a Fortnite Crew subscription comes with. Specifically, the survey asks players to rank what benefits would be most or least important to be added to the service.

Currently, the Fortnite Crew service includes an exclusive skin, some V-Bucks and a free battle pass.

The question itself features a wide range of choices. Some are simply new ways to purchase Fortnite Crew subscriptions, like the ability to buy the service in retail stores and multi-month options.

There are also more gameplay-centric choices, including everything from custom matchmaking options to cosmetics that show off how long you’ve had a subscription. Beyond that, there’s even a choice for a monthly physical mailer with additional rewards outside of what’s given digitally.

Despite this development, it remains to be seen if the company will actually implement any changes. While this survey might indicate that the company is, at the very least, open to adding features to the service, it’s important to remember that it’s not a guarantee that they will.

Currently, the service includes a free battle pass, an exclusive Crew pack, 1000 V-Bucks and an exclusive Member’s Only emote (at least for a limited time), so the implementation of any one of the features listed in the leaked survey would be a welcome addition, especially after its rocky start.

For any updates regarding new features in the Fortnite Crew service and Fortnite in general, keep it locked to Dexerto.
