Fortnite Gnome Location: Here's Where To Find The Hidden Gnome Between Fancy View, Wooden Shack, And Big House

The more you gnome.


Fortnite developer Epic Games has rolled out not one, but two new sets of challenges for the mega-hit battle royale shooter. One of the tasks you'll need to do in the 8-Ball Vs. Scratch set is search a hidden gnome found in between Fancy View, a wooden shack, and a big house. It's a bit of a challenge, but we're here to help. If you're not sure where those are, we've put together this guide to help you complete the challenge.

Where Is The Hidden Gnome Location?

As the challenge teases, the gnome you're trying to track down is hidden somewhere between three different locations: Fancy View, a wooden shack, and a big house. That's certainly a vague clue, especially if you're not familiar with the layout of the island, but here's where all three of those places can be found.

Each of the landmarks mentioned by the challenge are on the westernmost edge of the island. Fancy View is located southwest of Sweaty Sands. The wooden shack and big house, meanwhile, are directly east and southeast of Fancy View, respectively. This means the gnome you're searching for will appear on the hill that's between those three places; you can see the spot on the map below.

How To Complete The Challenge

Now that we know where to look, all you need to do to complete the challenge is head to the hill between the three specified locations, and you'll see the gnome once you approach. Search it as you would a chest and you'll clear the mission, netting you a nice chunk of XP and unlocking another 8-Ball Vs. Scratch challenge to complete.

Season 1 of Fortnite Chapter 2 is slated to end of February 6, so there's still a little time left to complete any outstanding challenges you may have from this season. If you need help clearing any earlier missions, we've collated all our maps and guides for the trickier ones in our Fortnite Chapter 2 challenges roundup.
