'Fortnite' Hidden Gnome Locations & Retail Row Treasure Map Challenge Guide

Fortnite's Week 7 Challenges are beginning to go live, and we want you to earn the Battle Stars for the toughest ones. In this short guide, we'll show the Retail Row Treasure Map location and describe how you can find seven Hidden Gnomes.


You can use the map below to find the Battle Star, but what you're essentially doing is going to the Maze in Wailing Woods and looking for a large tree.

To find it, take a left when you enter the maze. When you encounter the large tree, take a right and you'll come to a dead end. After that you'll find yourself at the location shown below.

Originally it was assumed this challenge related to Gnomes stuck in brick walls, but that is actually not the case. The Gnomes are hiding in specific locations. If you need help finding one, just listen for its laugh and you should have no trouble tracking it. Note that any Gnomes stuck in brick walls don't count.
