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.
