If you’re a fan of Fortnite, you may have noticed that gnomes have recently made an appearance in the game. These cheeky little creatures have taken up residence in Fortnite OG, and it’s up to you to welcome them to the island. The best part? You’ll be rewarded with 20K XP per gnome you find! So, if you’re looking to level up quickly, we’ve got you covered with a guide to all the gnome locations.
There are a total of ten gnomes hidden throughout Fortnite OG, each one located near or inside a named area. While they may not be too difficult to find, we understand that you don’t want to waste any time. That’s why we’ve compiled a list of gnome locations to help you complete this quest as fast as possible. As you visit each location, keep an eye out for the exclamation point, as it will indicate the exact spot where the gnome is hiding.
Head to the northeast of Shifty Shafts, and you’ll find a crashed bus on the side of a hill. Look closely, and you’ll spot a gnome planted headfirst into the ground beside the bus.
Make your way inside the mines of Shifty Shafts, and there, you’ll find a gnome playing poker beside a chest. You’ll need to break down some wooden slats to reveal its hiding spot!
If you head north of Dusty Divot and come across a pond, search for a gnome lying on a bouncing floaty in the middle of the water. It’s hard to miss!
At Risky Reels, you’ll discover a gnome having a romantic meal with a teddy bear behind the RVs at the back of the outdoor cinema. Quite the fancy gnome!
Inside the hedge maze at Wailing Woods, you’ll stumble upon a gnome trapped in a cage near the hut at the center. Free it, and you’ll earn 20 XP!
East of Paradise Palms, there’s a grey building near the coast. Look for a gnome standing by two gravestones at the edge of the cliff. It’s a somber sight for a gnome, indeed.
On the southernmost point of Pleasant Park, you’ll see a tent with a gnome sitting by a campfire. It’s the perfect spot for a gnome to relax and enjoy some marshmallows!
To the north of Lonely Lodge, there’s a large pond with a tiny island in the middle. Look for a gnome fishing beside the stones on the island, completely ignoring the “No Fishing” sign!
Head over to the stone head near Greasy Grove, and you’ll find a gnome sitting on a little armchair just north of this area. While you’re there, don’t forget to check out the nearby chests!
Lastly, there’s a gnome located at the huge steel llama statue north of Junk Junction. Don’t miss out on the chance to explore the statue for some extra loot!
And there you have it – all the locations of those mischievous gnomes! If you need more assistance, such as information on how much XP you’ll need to level up this season, be sure to check out our other Fortnite guides. Happy gnome hunting!
