Finding Baby Groot from Guardians of the Galaxy in Fortnite Season 4 can be tricky, but our location guide should sort you out. It looks like the little fella is quite rare as well.

Marvel characters have been appearing in Fortnite periodically for some time now, but the biggest set arrived on August 27 as Season 4, Chapter 2 opened its doors. The map may not look much different, but things have changed. Big time.


One of the missions players can take up is to rescue Sapling Groot. All you have to do is find it on the map and interact with it. Those who have watched the Guardians movies will know, however, that he’s a little smaller than he used to be.

So, it’s harder to find him as well.

Groot’s larger form is actually available in the Fortnite Season 4 Battle Pass. You unlock him at level 38.

Knowing the general area where it can be found narrows things down, so that’s a good starting point. Holly Hedges is the place to be for this challenge.

The step-by-step guide below will explain the rest in detail, although as of August 27, it doesn’t appear to be spawning for all players. Hopefully, you will be part of the lucky few.

  1. Load into a game of Fortnite and jump from the Battle Bus.
  2. Using your glider, land at the Holly Hedges location.
  3. Visit the Southwest corner of the settlement.
  4. Locate the Garden Center. It has a huge caged fence around it. There are plants in the back yard.
  5. Search the plants and under one of them will be Baby Groot, ready to be rescued.

If you’re finding this one to be a little tricky, even with the instructions above, you’re not alone.


A few players have been celebrating their rescue mission on social media, although others claim it’s not there yet. Perhaps it has rolled out earlier than intended. Users like black_fang555 have been lucky enough to stumble upon the little Sapling, too.

As you can see, Groot is just waiting in his plant pot. Don’t be fooled, though, as another area looks just like this one and there’s just an old garden gnome waiting there. Don’t risk your life for the wrong one!

This easter egg task also might have come at a rough time as well, because the Season 4, Week 1 challenges require players to get three eliminations at Holly Hedges. That means even more people than usual will be dropping there, so be sure to watch your back as you search for this Guardians of the Galaxy character.


If you don’t want to put your body on the line for this one, a Baby Groot Back Bling is also in the Fortnite Item Shop – so you could check that out instead.


CouRage reveals why he stopped playing Fortnite

Jack ‘CouRage’ Dunlop was once a massive figure in the world of competitive Fortnite, but the star has stopped playing the battle royale title altogether, and finally revealed his reasons why in an October YouTube video.

Although CouRage got his start as a caster for MLG, he became synonymous with Fortnite in 2018-2019, going on to commentate several major events for the battle royale title — including the Fortnite World Cup, which he did the play-by-play for along with fellow star streamer DrLupo.


However, he has since stopped streaming the game altogether and has instead opted for other popular picks like Among Us and Warzone, leaving his Fortnite-centric viewers confused as to why he suddenly broke off from Fortnite.

While CouRage has been vocal about his hatred for skill-based matchmaking for some time, he finally explained his reasons for stepping away in a YouTube video on October 13, on the heels of the Chipotle Challenger Series.

CouRage and DrLupo cast several major Fortnite events, including the Summer Skirmish finals and the World Cup.

“Fortnite was a game that changed my life forever, and a game that kind of took my life by storm,” he began. “I fell in love with it when I played right on day number one… and now, three years, later… is something I will cherish forever.”

CouRage went on to explain that when he’d first started streaming the game, he “loved it arguably more than any game I’ve ever loved before.”

“But, like a lot of people, I believe the transition from Chapter 1 to Chapter 2… towards the end of Chapter 1, I was already falling out of love with the game,” he admitted. “It became more stressful than anything.”

CouRage cited Fortnite’s mechs as one of the reasons that led to him falling out of love with the game, as well as its steadily-growing, competitive atmosphere.

Citing a hatred of the game’s short-lived MECH robots after the Fortnite World Cup last year, he “wanted to love the game, but wasn’t able to,” also claiming that he felt its environment had changed from mostly casual to fiercely competitive during this time.

Of course, skill-based matchmaking (SBMM) played a part in this feeling, which he said was “one of the things that completely destroyed my love for the game.”

“I think it took away the ability for you to have as much fun as you once did,” he added. “Now in these games, it’s super sweaty, every fight’s a minute long… it became more stressful than anything.”

Although CouRage listed plenty of faults with the title as it currently stands, he made sure to express his love for Epic and hopes to work with the company for years to come, but will be shifting his content to other titles for the foreseeable future.


Epic have already revealed their plans to do another Fortnite World Cup in 2021, and considering how popular the former OpTic Gaming star is when it comes to hosting such events, it might not be too long before we see his name tied again to the battle royale.
