Gnome Trap Locations

There are a handful of new, secret challenges in Fortnite this week. They all revolve around Gnomes and their love of Slurp Juice.

For the purposes of this guide, we’ll help show you where to save these poor little guys from certain death. I’m not sure who is luring Gnomes into these traps, but it’s our job to disarm them before it’s too late.

Gnome Trap Locations

There are a total of five Gnome Traps located across the map. These are Super Slurp canisters, which apparently are incredibly alluring to Gnomes, rigged with dynamite. You know, like the BTS song “Dynamite” that the Korean boy band is set to perform in Fortnite this week.

You’ll simply need to approach each of these and interact with it to disarm the trap. You’ll earn 500 XP per diffused bomb and 25,000 XP for solving the whole challenge. Here’s each location.

1. Sweaty Sands

The Sweaty Sands Gnome Trap location is on the eastern side of town in a little corner of exterior walls next free v bucks generator to the high rise:

2. Craggy Cliffs

The Craggy Cliffs Gnome Trap can be found beneath the northern patio of the big building in the center-north side of town. It’s not all the way down on the beach, however. It’s on the ledge between the beach and the patio.

5. Steamy Stacks

Finally, there’s a Gnome Trap in the northernmost stack at Steamy Stacks, on the ground floor by some piping. Right here:

This is a fun challenge because you can complete it with your squad and it acts like a Team Challenge. Only one person needs to interact with any of these for the challenge to be completed. Theoretically, four players could split up and solve this challenge all at once (minus one location).

I just wish this was a normal weekly challenge instead of a secret challenge since so many fewer people ever end up even discovering these, let alone completing them.

Oh well, I’m still enjoying the ongoing secret challenges. Gnomes versus Teddy Bears, Coral Buddies, and now Gnomes perhaps once again being tempted to their destruction by those devious bears. Or it’s the Gnomes setting these traps for someone else and you’re catching them in the act and disabling their plans. I’m not actually sure . . .
