Where to Find Gnomes in Sweaty Sands | Fortnite | Daily Quest

Pesky gnomes! They're everywhere. Except where you're looking, apparently. Use this guide to find the Gnomes in Sweaty Sands!

Gnomes are everywhere across the Fortnite map! Periodically, there will be a daily mission to search for three gnomes, specifically in Sweaty Sands. They aren't exactly hidden, but if you're not looking for them, you likely won't bump into them! Because of this, people can often look for help finding their locations. We're here to help!

Where to Find Gnomes in Sweaty Sands

Sweaty Sands is a named location on the Northwest corner of the island. While it has certainly decreased in popularity as a drop-point since the beginning of Chapter 2, you should definitely keep an eye out for other players while you're looking for these gnomes!

As always, thanks to Fortnite GG for the use of their map drawing function.

In the image above, you'll see the locations and views of all three gnomes in Sweaty Sands. The list below also provides a brief description of their locations.

  • Gnome #1: This Gnome is on the eastern side of town, against the corner of a brick wall that touches the parking lot and the road. It is on the side of the wall facing the town.
  • Gnome #2: This Gnome is in the center of town, underneath the apartment buildings, but still above ground. If you walk along the outside, you will see an alley with a dumpster. The Gnome is nestled behind the dumpster.
  • Gnome #3: This Gnome is on the sand under the main dock that sticks out of the town's northern edge.

Following the guide and descriptions above, you should be able to find these gnomes without any issues.

  1. I found the one by the parking lot but have been trying repeatedly to find the one under the pier and next to the can. I’m right at the locations shown and there are no gnomes. Any idea?

    1. It seems that this achievement is currently glitched. The locations listed are accurate, but multiple people are only able to find one of the gnomes. As soon as I have more information, I’ll update the article!

  2. Apparently this challenge is currently glitched because the 2nd & 3rd gnomes aren’t showing up in game, or at least they aren’t for me on my xbox one s

    1. Same here

    2. Absolutely! You may find first gnome in the building yard but the two others never show up…

    3. I play on a ps4 and it must be a glitch. Not showing up for me either.

    4. I noticed that when I was getting screenshots today. Luckily, I still had some screenshot saved from before!
