The third stage of Doggo’s Fortnite challenges during season 5 week 5 requires you to collect four garden gnomes across Fort Crumpet and Holly Hedges. This challenge is almost exactly the same as the first stage, which is for digging up garden gnomes — so don’t confuse the two. You must complete stages one and two before being able to make progress toward this one at stage three. As with most challenges, the game doesn’t tell you where to find the four gnomes, but luckily, we can fill you in on the locations of all of them.
In this guide, we’ll show you everything you need to know about collecting gnomes to complete this week’s challenge. Here’s where to collect gnomes from Fort Crumpet and Holly Hedges in Fortnite.
Much like the first stage of Doggo’s requests, the gnomes in this challenge can be collected in any order. Just be aware that the two locations — Fort Crumpet and Holly Hedges — will likely be super busy because of the challenge. It’s best to attempt to collect gnomes with a squad so they can watch your back. Also, unlike the first stage, these gnomes do not need to be dug up. They can simply be collected by pressing Square on PlayStation, X on Xbox, and Y on Nintendo Switch.
Holly Hedges — First gnome
The first gnome is located in the outside section of the store in the middle of Holly Hedges. It’s sort of like the garden section of a large department store. The gnome is found cleverly hidden among the plants on the eastern side.
Holly Hedges — Second gnome
The next one is just north of the previous gnome. Make your way over to the festive, holiday-looking area and you’ll find the gnome next to some presents. (When using the map above, reference the red circle, not the blue waypoint.)
Fort Crumpet — First gnome
Next, make your way to Fort Crumpet, which is located on the northwestern side of the map, south of Coral Castle. This gnome is found inside the fort on the eastern side behind the cash register area. It’s close to a stack of souvenirs.
Fort Crumpet — Second gnome
For the final gnome, look for it in the center of the fort, behind a set of stairs. It’s on the ground level — the same as the previous gnome.
After you’ve collected all four gnomes (in any order), you’ll gain credit for completing the challenge and earn 20,000 XP for doing so. Now, you’ll only have one more Doggo quest left, which will have you bury the gnomes you just collected in various areas around the map.
