Where to find rare Baby Groot in Fortnite Season 4

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.

Finding Baby Groot’s location in Fortnite

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.


Did The Rock just tease he’s getting a Fortnite skin?

After an appearance by a very cartoony-looking float during the Macy’s Thanksgivings Day Parade, The Rock hinted that he may end up getting a skin in the popular battle royale game Fortnite, although he’s being a bit vague. 

The Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade floats are known their pop culture references. Between Pikachu, Goku, and others making appearances, it shouldn’t really come as a surprise that one based on the popular young Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson meme a few years back would make its way into the 2020 version of the parade.

Seemingly because it’s a float, the giant balloon itself seems to be a cartoon representation of the meme, rather than a hyper-realistic one. After one person seemed to point out that it looks a bit like a Fortnite skin, the former wrestler now actor responded in a way that’s raising a few eyebrows.

In response to the comment about his float looking like a Fortnite character, The Rock simply responded with “way ahead of you” and “great minds”. This obviously caused a few people to pause and ask themselves if he just hinted at a Fortnite skin.

Unfortunately, we don’t have any official comment from Epic but the comment is certainly suspicious. While one could make the argument that The Rock was saying that he also had the same thought before the original tweeter, the wink face emoji seen after the tweet is a bit peculiar. Surely he would know not to put that kind of statement out with that emoji unless he meant to hint at it, right?

It’s also a bit odd that he also responded to someone who tweeted that they “shouldn’t give them any ideas”, meaning he could have been totally knowledgable in what he’s doing.

His inclusion in the game also wouldn’t be surprising. Fortnite is known for its crossovers at this point, even allowing for some Icon Series skins based on celebrities like Ninja and others. It could also be a part of a larger WWE crossover, considering there’s a plethora of characters there to make skins out of.

Still, until nothing official is announced, take this with a massive grain of salt. Here’s hoping that if it is real that it will get announced soon, however.
