Plants vs Zombies Garden Warfare 2 Deluxe Edition Golden Gnomes, Secrets, Hidden Locations

This guide is for people that haven’t found these locations or gnomes yet or are stuck with them.

The golden gnomes

In case you didn’t know there are a total of 54 golden gnomes in garden warfare 2(gw2).
They are scattered around the backyard battleground and some maps in about a 50-50 split.
Once you have them all, you will be rewarded with a lot of coins and some special things.

You will not be able to get all of them unless you completed the majority of both campaigns. (u can get around this by joining a someone’s backyard who already did the singleplayer)

You can turn them in at the bottom of the sewers.(when you have all of them) Just walk down and you will see a big blue building.

golden gnomes location(backyard)

The first fourteen of the gnomes will be here both on plant and zombie side.
For these I highly recomend using mobile caracters like superbrainz or citron.

The first gnome is in the plant base: take a right turn to the garage door and inside a sharp left next to the decline.

For the second gnome just follow the descending stairs and at the bridge, look to the left, there will be a panel of a mushroom. Shoot it and the second gnome pops up on a log.

Then go back the pipe and enter the crossroads on the right. Keep to the left and look at the bridge across (standing in the middle), take a look to the left and see a platform behind some pipes that hide the gnome.(I find imps to be easiest to get there with a simple doublejump).

golden gnomes location(small maps)

The next 40 are scattered around the different multiplayer maps most have 2 but turf takeover maps have a combined of 24.(that is why they have there separate chapter) I highly suggest that you do these in singleplayer with bots turned off and with speed/gravity modifiers.

z-tech factory:

first on our list is z-tech factory go to the edge of the map opposite of the portals.
Look towards the wastelands and aim to the left and shoot the usual mushroom button and the gnome will glide to you on a baloon.

sewers:
Down at the sewers, next to the fish, you will see an entry, all you have to do is get there. This can be done by jumping to it with imp or spin dashing to it with citron. I recommend using a drone as it can open a door above it to enter safely.
Once inside the pipe, go down and there will be a ramp and a button at the top. Shoot it and you have unlocked this room with the rewards in the other room.
