Stranger Things Game Gnomes Locations
Every action-adventure game worth of its salt always presents a collectibles hunt quest of some kind. Bonus XP Inc’s Stranger Things: The Game is no different. Its emphasis on the main collectibles, Gnomes and Eggos, lends some purpose in what would otherwise be a haphazard exploration of Hawkins and its surroundings.
While the game might not give you the expansive map you’d get on bigger action-adventure titles like Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, it still gives a decent challenge in your quest to gather all collectibles especially if you don’t know all the Gnome locations.
