The time has come once again in Fortnite, as the gnomes make a return in the game’s latest update. Players will be looking to gain more items for the Fortnite item shop, and other features to unlock. Completing challenges is also a key pastime, and here players will be looking at completing a challenge to finish the secret GNOM Talk challenge.

Finding the GNOM Talk Set

This is a relatively easy challenge to get started with, so much so you won’t need to worry about Fortnite weapons and whatnot. If you go to the southern part of the map, you will be able to get yourself 25,000 XP.

All you need to do is land south of Apres Ski, which is near Misty Meadows. From there, follow the coast until you reach an amphitheater. You will come across a plethora of gnomes, who will be surrounding a silent speaker. Keep moving forward towards it and you will trigger a sound, after which a Slurp Barrel will explode.

You will see an animation that will see the GNOM Talk challenge popping and you will receive your desire XP, without getting caught up in the explosion.

Future Gnome content?

So, what does this mean for the future? Does this mean that we are likely to see the reignition of the war between the bears against the Gnomes? Or will we just be seeing more side-quests that are related to the Gnomes themselves? Time will tell if we are to see this form of content or new Fortnite items that are related to it in the Fortnite item shop for that matter.

Given the amount of content that Epic is adding to the game as of late, it would be safe to bet that we can see more challenges and side quests that are like this going forward. If you are a Marvel fan, in particular, you will have noticed a wealth of comic book related content coming to the popular Battle Royale title.

We have seen the likes of Deadpool, Wolverine, Doctor Doom, and so much more being introduced for those who wish to indulge. You are just a few challenges away from a visit to the Fortnite item shop or unlocking your favorite heroes in the game. We can expect a lot more content where this is concerned in the near future we hope, in Epic Games’ bid to keep the game as fresh as possible.
