It’s time to tackle some new weekly challenges in Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 5. We’ll go over how you can find and dig up Gnomes at Fort Crumpet and Pleasant Park.
We’re now in week 5 of Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 5, which means we have a whole new set of weekly challenges to tackle. These tasks provide a great opportunity to earn XP on a regular basis and unlock new skins.
While last week’s challenges focused on tomatoes, the theme for Week 5 revolves around Gnomes. One new Epic Quest requires you to dig up Gnomes from Fort Crumpet and Pleasant Park. Here’s how you can find them.
Where to dig up Gnomes in Fort Crumpet and Pleasant Park
You need to dig up four buried gnomes from the two locations in order to complete this challenge. Keep an eye out for mounds of dirt in the ground that will glow when you approach them.
After you’ve found one of these dirt mounds, you just need to hit it with your pickaxe to collect the gnome. Once you’ve dug one up, you can rotate to the location of the next mound and repeat the process there.
You will come across some Gnomes on the ground floor of Fort Crumpet. These aren’t too difficult to spot as the location is small and there normally isn’t a lot of player traffic. We recommend that you land here and then collect them before rotating to Pleasant Park.
Once you arrive at the next location, you’ll need to comb the parts of the area that are covered in grass. You can find one near the center of the park and another one is by a fence in the garden of a house that you can find on the west side.
YouTuber wgwYT went over the locations of all four Gnomes in Fort Crumpet and Pleasant Park in the video below.
After you’ve dug up all four Gnomes from these areas, you will have successfully completed the Buried Gnomes in Fortnite Week 5 challenge. There is another task that has you dig up Gnomes at Holly Hedges as well, so you can head over there to collect some.
Quite a few of the tasks this week are Gnome themed. Another challenge requires you to bury two Gnomes in either Pleasant Park or Retail Row. These are some of the easiest ones to complete, and you can get them done in a single match by landing in the right spot.
The more difficult weekly challenges require you to take on greater dangers, such as eliminating 50 IO Guards. These are worth tackling since they provide high XP rewards, so be sure to try completing all of them before time runs out!

The Rock teases major Fortnite role ahead of Chapter 3
Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson has teased his arrival in Fortnite ahead of the launch of Chapter 3 of the battle royale.
With Fortnite Season 8 coming to an end, popular celebrity Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson has teased his arrival to the battle royale in a new video ahead of the Chapter 3 launch.
Now, it seems that Epic Games might be planning to bring in another major celebrity to the battle royale, as Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson appears to be teasing his arrival in Fortnite.
The Rock set to play Fortnite’s The Foundation
This is a character who is the leader of a group known as the ‘The Seven,’ that have been in the game since Chapter 1 and were also a part of the Fortnite x Batman crossover comic book.
The Rock’s fridge contained The Foundation’s helmet in plain view. He also used some key Fortnite terms like Zero Point, Higher Ground, and Foundation.
Dwayne Johnson’s appearance in Fortnite has been teased before, and it seems that this crossover is finally happening.
Ever since this tweet went live, Fortnite fans have been speculating about whether or not this confirms The Rock’s arrival in the game. While some players are excited, others are a bit disappointed that The Foundation is a crossover character.
“I low-key wish The Foundation wasn’t The Rock,” tweeted one user. “I wanted him to be an original character.”
Although extremely likely, it’s worth keeping in mind that Dwayne Johnson hasn’t officially confirmed his arrival in Fortnite just yet.
It’s entirely possible that this could just be part of a joke. Hopefully, we’ll get an official announcement from him or Epic Games soon enough, and we’ll be sure to update you when that happens.

Leaked Fortnite Chapter 3 trailer gives first look at new map
A teaser trailer for Fortnite Chapter 3 has been leaked through TikTok, giving players a first look at the new map.
It appears that Epic Games has accidentally added a Chapter 3 trailer to TikTok early, which gives us a look at the new map.
Fortnite is set to receive one of its largest updates yet with Chapter 3 in December. This will start a brand-new storyline, introduce plenty of new mechanics and NPCs, and of course, bring a new map.
The End event isn’t set to begin until Saturday, December 4, but it appears that Epic Games accidentally added the trailer to TikTok early. Although now removed, it’s still out in the wild, giving the first look at the Chapter 3 map.
Fortnite Chapter 3 trailer leaked
Of course, If you don’t want spoilers for The End event and Chapter 3 that follows, don’t read on any further.
Now onto the trailer.
In this short teaser trailer, we can see Agent Jonesy is washed out to sea off the coast of the Chapter 2 island. We then see the island completely flip over, revealing the Chapter 3 map on the other side.
This is presumably after The End event following the Cube Queen’s defeat. The Tsunami that hits Jonesy will likely mark the beginning of the downtime, but we’ll need to wait until the event to know for sure.
Some believe that this trailer teases that they’re bringing back the Chapter 1 map. We can’t see enough of it to confirm, but the desert biome spotted has led to speculation that Paradise Palms will make a return.
There has been some debate over whether this trailer is real, but it appears to be legit. Known leaker iFireMonkey confirmed that “the video IS real,” and they’ve used the TikTok account as a source before.
Leakers say they’ve been asked not to leak any Chapter 3 details during downtime between seasons, so we’re unlikely to know much more about the new map ahead of its arrival.

How to get Fortnite Nick Fury skin: S.H.I.E.L.D Set bundle & price
Fortnite has added the Marvel character Nick Fury as a new skin, and here’s how you can get your hands on the S.H.I.E.L.D Set.
Epic Games have added the Marvel character Nick Fury as a new skin in Fortnite, and here’s everything you need to know about the new S.H.I.E.L.D Set, including the price.
Fortnite has done multiple collaborations with Marvel in the past, with Carnage and Venom joining in Season 8, and the Season 4 Battle Pass consisting of superheroes. Spider-Man is also rumored to be arriving soon.
Epic Games aren’t done with Marvel characters just as Nick Fury has been added as a brand-new skin for players to unlock in Fortnite, complete with his own back bling, glider, and bundle.
Here’s how you can add these to your inventory.
How to get Nick Fury Fortnite bundle
Nick Fury is the director of the organization S.H.I.E.L.D and works closely with the Avengers. Epic Games added his outfit to the Fortnite Item Shop on November 26, and you can also get the S.H.I.E.L.D Set.
Here’s everything in the S.H.I.E.L.D Set:
- Nick Fury outfit
- F.I.E.L.D Pack Back Bling
- Director’s Scythe Pickaxe
- First-Strike Infiltration Glider
- Quinjets in Flight Loading Screen
Fury has played a major role in the Marvel Cinematic Universe movies, and his Fortnite skin is based on his appearance in those. The Back Bling is included with the outfit, but you’ll have to purchase the Pickaxe and Glider separately.
Fortnite Nick Fury bundle price
Nick Fury’s outfit and Back Bling bundle cost 1,500 V-Bucks while the Glider and Pickaxe cost 800 V-Bucks each. Alternatively, you could spring for the whole S.H.I.E.L.D set for just 2,000 V-Bucks.
This costs the same as a Legendary skin includes all of these items, making it one of the cheapest bundles in the game. You can then equip the Nick Fury outfit as you battle Sideways Cube Monsters.
This bundle is an exciting addition for both Marvel and Fortnite fans. Epic Games might introduce even more crossovers before Season 8 ends, as there are other popular franchises that they can collaborate with.
