Here are the hidden gnome locations for the Fortnite Overtime challenges: Rippley vs. Sludge and 8-Ball vs. Scratch.

There are now three batches of Overtime challenges to complete before Chapter 2 Season 1 ends. The Fortnite v11.40 update brought us challenges for different variants of the Rippley and 8-Ball skins.


Most of the Rippley challenges are straightforward. I wish I could say the same for the 8-Ball challenges, but these will require a bit more of a grind. Thankfully, you can knock both of the challenges out at the same time.

Both variants require you to find hidden gnomes. They are relatively close to one another, so you can grab the two of them in one Team Rumble match – provided that you finish the previous challenges first.

Below are the exact locations of both hidden gnomes. I haven’t completed the previous challenges yet, but this is where you’ll find them once you get to that stage of the Overtime challenges.

Logjam Woodworks, A wooden shack, and a bucket tree

There’s a small shack that’s just to the south of Logjam Woodworks – a great place to land as a solo player. There, you’ll find a small swamp with lilypads dotted around.

In the back of the swamp, you’ll see a tree with some weeds behind it. Hidden in those weeds will be your first hidden gnome location.

Fancy View, a wooden shack, and a big house

This gnome location is near the shoreline to the west of Holly Hedges. If you know where the H-shaped building is located, then you’re on the right track.

Just outside of the H building, you’ll see a small meadow covered in yellow flowers. There’s a small space of grass where the gnome will be sitting.

So, there you have it. We’ll be back in two weeks for another Fortnite gnome location guide when the Cameo vs. Chic challenges come out. Happy hunting!
