Fortnite player breaks down the full story of the Bears vs. Gnomes

Want to get up to speed in the Bears vs. Gnomes feud? Take a look at this full recap.



While Midas works on his rumored Doomsday Device, a sub-plot has been brewing that involves some of the inanimate objects of the island. The Teddy Bears and Gnomes have been at it for weeks – stealing honey, imprisoning one another, and escalating their feud to an armed conflict outside of Weeping Woods.

Players who have known about this battle have been intervening for some free XP. These challenges weren’t listed but offered rewards nonetheless. You can take a look at how to complete all of the Bears vs. Gnomes challenges here.

We haven’t thought about the storyline of this fight very much. We’ve, simply, been offering challenge guides and moving on – as many other players have. One player, however, took the time to spell out exactly what’s been going on with the Bears and the Gnomes.

According to Reddit user u/juances19, the Gnomes were the ones who started it. They stole pots of honey from the Bears – which we, eventually, returned to them.

We wouldn’t have known where to look if the Bears hadn’t kidnapped and interrogated one of the Gnomes, however. Unfortunately, this prompted a surveillance operation from the Gnomes.

As you can see, we’ve been playing both sides. We helped the Gnomes set up their telescopes so they could spy on the Bears, eventually leading to a hostile takeover and the imprisonment of the former group.

We came back and freed the Bears from their prison cell, but that only made matters worse. The Bears and the Gnomes were set to battle one another on the hill overlooking Weeping Woods.

This time, we decided enough was enough. We stepped in and took the weapons away from both factions. With no more firepower, both groups were forced to come to an agreement and form a truce.

Things could end there – but don’t be so sure. These factions have had some bad blood for a long time. Another theory is that they could be teaming up to take on the players in Season 3.

Either that or Epic just wanted to give us a small way to earn some extra XP. Now know the entire plot of the Bears vs. Gnomes in Fortnite Season 2.


How to collect Cookbooks from Pleasant Park and Craggy Cliffs

Fortnite players need to collect Cookbooks from Pleasant Park and Craggy Cliffs for the Season 5 Week 14 challenges.



Fortnite Cookbook locations

The Fortnite Season 5 Week 14 challenges require players to collect Cookbooks from Pleasant Park and Craggy Cliffs. Here are all of the locations you need to visit.

This week’s Fortnite challenges are relatively easy to complete without much effort. There is one that will take a bit of searching, however. Players need to collect Cookbooks from Pleasant Park and Craggy Cliffs to receive 20,000 XP.

Once you know where to go, the challenge won’t be too hard. Lucky for you, we found these locations and placed map markers so you know where to look.

Pleasant Park Cookbook locations

Pleasant Park has been a hot drop since Fortnite’s initial release, and it’s only gotten hotter with recent updates. It will be a bit of a chore to find all of the Pleasant Park Cookbooks in a normal match but could be quite easy in a game of Team Rumble.

The Pleasant Park Cookbooks can be found in the following locations. All of them are located in the kitchen of each of these houses:

  • “Doghouse” in the kitchen on the bottom floor
  • The brick house to the northwest
  • The brick house on the west side of the POI
  • The large, gray house next to the brick house
  • The small, or “poverty” house in the southwest corner

Craggy Cliffs Cookbook locations

There are only four Cookbooks at Craggy Cliffs, but that’s not a huge issue. You only need to find four of them anyway, so you can complete this challenge in one match – provided that no one is contesting you.

There are a couple of kitchens in Craggy, but these Cookbooks are a bit more hidden than they are in Pleasant. You can find them each:

  • The boathouse, or factory, to the east, on the ground floor
  • The bottom floor of the clock tower
  • In the kitchen of the large, white house to the west
  • Next to the above house, in the kitchen next to the fridge (ground floor, not the basement)

Provided that you’re going for this challenge in Team Rumble, it should only take one game for you to collect the four Cookbooks. After that, you can move onto easier challenges like dealing damage to players.

Fortnite Season 5 Week 14 challenge guide

The Fortnite Season 5 Week 14 challenges are here. Now is one of your last chances to finish the Battle Pass before Season 6 gets here.



Mando Bounty LTM Fortnite

Fortnite Season 5 Week 14 is here, giving players one of their last chances to earn XP before Season 6 begins.

Fortnite Season 6 is right around the corner, which means players only have a few more weeks to max-out the Battle Pass and earn the Enlightened skins for Season 5.

This week marks week 14, and completing the challenges will give you a better shot at hitting your seasonal goal. Here’s what you’ll need to do.

Fortnite Season 5 Week 14 challenges

  • Collect Cookbooks from Pleasant Park and Craggy Cliffs (4)
  • Harvest Fruits and Vegetables (8)
  • Earn Bars to hire a Character (150)
  • Visit different restaurant kitchens (2)
  • Drive vehicle from Sweaty Sands to Pleasant Park (1)
  • Drop off a vehicle at the Gas Station in Lazy Lake or Catty Corner (1)
  • Drive vehicle from Pleasant Park to Lazy Lake (1)

These challenges are relatively self-explanatory. We’re not sure whether the fruit boxes count as harvesting fruit (they probably do), but you can complete this challenge at either of the two farms on the map, harvesting corn and apples.

Restaurant kitchens should be easy to find as well. There’s one in Craggy Cliffs, The Orchard (Tomato Town), and Logjam Woodworks (old Greasy Grove restaurant). These should be marked on your map when the challenge is available.

Earning enough Bars to hire an NPC could be as easy as hiring the closest one to you, although you might need to collect 150 Bars beforehand. Either way, this won’t be too much of a challenge.

For the Legendary challenge, you’ll need to deal 5,000 damage to players who are more than 50 meters away. You can do this in your normal games, but it’s easy to grind in a few games of Team Rumble.

We’ll update this guide with specific tutorials on how to complete some of the more specific challenges of the week when the challenges are officially released. Good luck!

Fortnite Surface Hub location for Season 5 Week 13 challenges

The Fortnite Season 5 Week 13 challenges have players scanning servers at a Surface Hub. Here are the locations you need to visit.



One of the Fortnite Season 5 Week 13 challenges requires players to scan a server at a Surface Hub. Here’s where you need to go.

The Fortnite Season 5 Week 13 challenges are here. Most of them are pretty easy to complete, but there’s one particular challenge that might seem strange to you. This challenge requires players to scan a server at a Surface Hub.

You have probably already entered a Surface Hub or two without knowing what it was. These are the underground labs around the map that have something to do with Agent Jonesy and the Imagined Order. They may play a role in the storyline or could be as insignificant as Ghost and Shadow ended up being.

Either way, the Surface Hubs are home to the servers you need to scan for this challenge. Here’s where you need to go.

Fortnite Surface Hub location

There are three possible locations for you to complete this quest: Stealthy Stronghold, Hunter’s Haven, and Colossal Coliseum. We’re be focusing on the first two since the Surface Hub in Colossal Coliseum is more hidden and often more dangerous than the hubs in Stealthy Stronghold and Hunter’s Haven.

The Hunter’s Haven Surface Hub is located on the western side of the POI. You’ll see a small building, pictured above, with stairs that lead far down into the Surface Hub.

The Stealthy Stronghold Surface Hub might be the most well-known and safest since it’s in the corner of the map. The hub sits under the ruins in the center of the POI. When you access either of these Surface Hubs, you’ll want to look for a server, which you can see in the image, below.

All you need to do is scan the server and finish the challenge. You only need to do one of these, so it should be relatively easy to finish.

You can take a look at the rest of the Season 5 Week 13 challenge here. Good luck!
