Fortnite: Search the Hidden Gnome in different named locations

My god, it’s full of stars. Battle Stars, that is. This week’s Fortnite Week 7 challenge will have you scouring the map for the locations of Hidden Gnomes.

As part of Fortnite’s Week 7 challenges, players are tasked with mooching about and trying to get these potted pals to appear.

Hopefully you have plenty of patience. Or, you know, you could just use our guide.

Unlike Fortnite’s Week 5 gas station challenge, this one can be done over different matches, so you don’t need to do it all in one go, fortunately – not that the storm would let you.

Fortnite Hidden Gnome locations

All across Fortnite’s map are locations that are named: Retail Row, Salty Springs, Titled Towers, etc.

To complete this challenge, you need to mine lots of brick. Grab your pickaxe and just get as many brick resources as possible. Once you have plenty, head to a named location and start building brick walls.

There is a random chance when building brick walls for a gnome to appear trapped in the bricks in the middle of the structure. You just need to get this to happen in seven different named locations to complete the challenge.

Here’s a video explaining the process:

While building, you will likely have to contend with other players doing the same, so keep your guard up. It’s hard to look for Hidden Gnomes when you have a sniper round buried in your head.

For the other big challenge in Fortnite Week 7, here is where to search for to follow the Treasure Map found in Retail Row.

Remember that all previous week’s challenges stay live, so there’s still plenty of time to find the Summit Mountain Peaks or find the treasure from the Anarchy Acres Treasure Map.

The rest of Fortnite’s Week 7 challenges can be seen at that link.

If you’re looking for the recently added vending machines, we have a map for all Fortnite vending machine locations.
