Forbes says the fifth week of challenges is “all about gnomes for some reason. Finding gnomes. Digging them up. Burying them. It’s gnomes and more gnomes this week.

After the week of tomato-themed challenges, Fortnite sure has picked yet another crazy theme for its challenges.

As of now, Forbes only managed to get their hands on the list of quests. Unfortunately, there is no information about the rewards players can unlock by completing these quests.

Apart from these epic quests, there is also a legendary quest worth 55,000 XP. To complete it, players will have to eliminate a certain number of IO guards that Epic introduced in Season 5.

A lot of these challenges are pretty straightforward and don’t require explanations. However, there will be guides coming up for the more difficult ones that players may have a hard time completing. There will also be a location guide for all the IO guard spawns all over the map, making the legendary quest easier.

Fans are having an absolute blast playing the ongoing season and eagerly wait for what more is in store for them.
