The current season of Fortnite Battle Royale it gets weirder and weirder. Now, gnomes have appeared on the map that you must find to get rewards. They had been preparing to leave the island for several weeks and it seems that it is almost time for them to leave. Most of the gnomes had gathered near the steep cliffs and were loading their belongings into canoes. With the update Fortnite 18.40 and the Season 8 live event approaching, the last remaining gnomes are starting to leave.

Another group of gnomes is also present to the west near the Viking ship, as well as the team from the prison break. After removing some of the gnomes from the Sheriff’s Office, the crew fled south to the lake above Misty Meadows and can now be found in the Swamp, preparing their boats. Where they go now?
If the gnomes leave the island, it is very possible that they already have a destination planned in their minds. Another possibility is that they are leaving the blast radius and may return once the island is safe.
However, seeing as almost the entire gnome population has left or is leaving, it seems unlikely that it will return. There is some speculation that these gnomes are part of the IO and are leaving the island to head towards The Bridge.
