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!

We’re now in the ninth week of Fortnite Season 7, which marks the arrival of the 17.30 update, including the upcoming Ariana Grande concert and Grab-itron weapon. There’s another batch of Legendary Quests to complete. One of Week 9’s Quests tasks players with placing a Bioscanner in an Alien Biome.

For completing this, you’ll be awarded 30,000 XP, which will be a major boost in earning Battle Stars and unlocking the Rick Sanchez skin.

Here’s where to place a Fortnite Bioscanner in Alien Biomes for the Season 7 Week 8 Quests.

  1. In the garden of the western house, directly south of the large tree
  2. In the outdoor section of the Garden Center, on the east side
  3. In the garden of the southeastern house, beside the three trashcans

Fortnite’s Alien Biomes can be found in Holly Hatchery, marked by the glowing bubbles around the houses.

The Fortnite Bioscanner will already be marked on the ground for you already. You simply need to approach it and press the interact button to place it. Place one, and you’ll be awarded 30,000 XP towards leveling up and completing the Battle Pass.

This is a substantial amount of XP that will help you level up this season’s Battle Pass, so players will be wise to complete this challenge.

Expect Holly Hedges to be busy when these challenges go live, so either land directly on the Bioscanner or rotate to the location later in the game, as you are sure to run into plenty of enemy players who will be trying to complete this challenge to place a Fortnite Bioscanner in an Alien Biome as well.

How to get the Grab-itron in Fortnite Season 7: Locations & guide

Fortnite’s 17.30 update introduced a brand new weapon, and we’ve got everything you need to find and use the Grab-itron.

Fortnite's Grab-itron weapon

Fortnite’s v17.30 update has introduced the brand-new Grab-itron item, a gravity gun that can throw objects at enemies. Here’s how you can get your hands on this powerful new weapon.

Fortnite’s 17.30 update officially dropped on Tuesday, August 3, bringing with it the upcoming Mothership Abduction POI and the Rift Tour event complete with Ariana Grande concerts.

The headline addition in the patch though is the Grab-itron item, which first appeared in the game’s Season 7 Battle Pass trailer. Since then, players have been anxiously awaiting its arrival, but as each week passed, it never appeared. Finally, that’s all changed, and here’s how you can add it to your inventory during matches.

Where to find the Grab-itron

According to Epic Games, the Grab-itron can be found in three spots: in Chests, on top of Abductors, and inside the Mothership.

Unfortunately, finding them inside of Chests will rely on some luck, as you can never guarantee what loot you will get when you open one. Thankfully, the other two methods should guarantee you the item, although you may have to fight other players who have the same idea.

Finding Abductors is easy. When you jump into a game, simply open your map and you will see three Abductors marked on your map. Where they appear is different in every map, but they always spawn above named POIs. You’ll need to land on top of one to get the Grab-itron, so landing there early is your best bet.

These Abductors can also beam you inside the Mothership, which will also have Grab-itrons inside.

How to use the Grab-itron in Fortnite

The Grab-itron is essentially a gravity gun. Sometimes called a “UFO in your hands” according to Epic, players can use this weapon to lift and pull objects around them.

“Pull in an object with its flying disc, take it along with you, then launch it at an opponent,” writes the game’s developers, confirming that the damage the enemy takes depends on how big the item is and what it’s made of. Players will also be able to use these items to block incoming damage, although they will eventually break.

The Grab-itron is available in Fortnite right now, so jump into a game and get your hands on one for yourself to test its true power.
