Stranger Things 3: The Game: How to Find All 50 Hidden Gnomes

Stranger Things is no stranger to the useless collectible. If you're looking for all 50 of the hidden gnomes, find their names, numbers, and locations all here.

Stranger Things has captured the zeitgeist yet again. Though its time in the spotlight is more fleeting than other prestige TV series due to the Netflix binge model so many fans employ, this time we got a fun tie-in game to go with it, complete with 50 elusive hidden gnomes sprawled across Hawkins.

Below is every gnome in Stranger Things 3: The Game and where to find them, including their name, number as designated in-game, and which hub and specific location in which you can uncover their little red hats.

After this, you'll unlock the Home a Gnome achievement/trophy on Xbox One, Steam, or PS4 (sorry, Switch players), not to mention your garden will look spectacular.

Before You Begin

One tip we definitely want to stress is that you need not worry about getting every gnome on your first run. Some areas hiding gnomes are blocked off until certain characters can access them with their unique skills, like Joyce's boltcutters or Erica's McClain-like ability to move through vents.

For that reason, we suggest getting whichever gnomes you can get as you play through, but go back and clear the streets only after you have all 12 characters unlocked. Because they're numbered and named, it's easy to see in the game's menu which gnomes you're still missing and which you'll need to find once you can go anywhere you need.
