Fortnite: Bury Gnomes in Pleasant Park or Retail Row, Season 5 Week 5 Challenges

A new set of Fortnite Season 5 Challenges arrive today, bringing with it more things to do and a healthy number of XP to earn.

For those who don't know, or anyone joining the season late, here's how it works:

Each week players are handed seven Epic quests to complete, as well as one Legendary Quest.

Completing quests will earn players XP, with Epic quests handing out 22,000 XP and the Legendary quest offering a massive 55,000 XP.

Week 5 Challenges

This season Challenges have become Quests, as the season is focused around NPCs who give you Quests and Bounties to complete.

Here are the week 5 challenges.

Bury Gnomes in Pleasant Park or Retail Row

There are two locations in Pleasant Park and two in Retail Row.


However, you only need to bury two Gnomes, meaning they can be done in one location and in the same match.

For this one we're going to focus on Pleasant Park.

The first mound of dirt can be found on the south east part of the centre section, this is where the big wooden picnic area is.

The second one can be found just outside the red house that is on the far north west part of Pleasant Park.

This is the left house on the north row of houses.

Here are the two locations for Retail Row too, if you'd prefer to land there as its generally less contested than Pleasant Park.
