Fortnite has two new sets of challenges this week, each of which has one mission that asks you to search for a gnome that’s hidden somewhere around the island. In the Rippley Vs. Sludge set, you’ll need to search the hidden gnome found between Logjam Woodworks, a wooden shack, and a bucket tree. If you’re having trouble tracking it down, here’s where to find it.
Where Is The Hidden Gnome Location?
As the challenge clue states, the gnome you’re looking for is hidden somewhere between three objects. Each of these is located in the swamp in the southwestern corner of the island, so that should narrow down the search area considerably.
The easiest to find is Logjam Woodworks, the mill located in the western part of Weeping Woods. The wooden shack lies southwest of the mill, while the bucket tree–which is literally a small tree decorated with buckets–is southeast of the shack. That places the gnome inside a tree that’s between the three areas.
How To Complete The Challenge
Now that we know where the gnome is hidden, all you need to do is make your way to that area and interact with the gnome when you spot it to complete the challenge. Keep in mind, however, that the gnome won’t appear on the map until you’ve unlocked this mission, so you’ll first need to clear a few of the other Rippley Vs. Sludge challenges before you can find it.
As previously mentioned, there are two new sets of Fortnite challenges this week. The other is called 8-Ball Vs. Scratch, and it has its own gnome-related mission. If you need help tracking down that one, be sure to check out our other hidden gnome guide.
