To complete Fortnite Season 5’s Week 7 challenges, you’ll need to collect books from Holly Hedges and Sweaty Sands. Here’s where to find them with a handy locations map.

Another week of Fortnite action means another set of weekly challenges for players to complete. Following the recent v15.20 update, players will no doubt be looking for more ways to collect XP and level up their Battle Pass.

As well as some standard quests like searching chests and destroying Slurp Barrels, Week 7 features a location-based challenge that will require you to collect five books in the Holly Hedges and Sweaty Sands areas.

It’s easy to complete, as long as you know where to look. Here’s how you can complete the book challenge and earn that sweet, sweet 20,000 XP.

Here are the Fortnite book locations at Holly Hedges.

There are two locations you’ll need to visit to complete this challenge, with a choice of books to collect at each one.

First up is Holly Hedges, which you can find to the west of the map near Weeping Woods. We recommend landing here as soon as you leave the Battle Bus, as there will be plenty of other players trying to complete this quest during Week 7.

The first book should appear on the ground floor of the yellow house at the northwesternmost point of Holly Hedges. You should be able to walk up to it and simply interact with it to collect it.

The second book is inside the building at the northeastern corner of Holly Hedges, and the third book is located in the tall building at the southeastern corner of Holly Hedges.

You can see both of these locations on the handy map above if you need some help finding them.

Next up is Sweaty Sands. Fortunately, it’s just north of Holly Hedges, so it should only take you a matter of seconds to drive there if you find a car. Even on foot, it shouldn’t take you too long to get there.

There will be another selection of books to collect here. The first should appear inside the first building east of the RV park, and the second should appear two buildings east of that one.

Finally, the third book can be found in the tall building north from where you found the second one. It’s just across the road, meaning you should be able to collect all three of these books in no time.

One final tip for completing this challenge: If you play in Team Rumble rather than Battle Royale, you won’t have to worry about being eliminated and having to start another match, as you’ll simply respawn.

Epic Games tease more “exclusive” content coming for Fortnite Crew members

According to a brand-new leaked survey, Epic Games have been asking players what they might want to see added as a feature to the Fortnite Crew subscription service, hinting that they’re open to changing up what’s included in the future.

If you took a look at the Fortnite Crew subscription service and thought that it didn’t include enough or didn’t include much that you’d be interested in, Epic Games may be heeding those concerns.

According to Fortnite leaker ‘iFireMonkey,’ a brand-new survey sent out to Fortnite players might indicate that the developer might be open to changing up what a Fortnite Crew subscription comes with. Specifically, the survey asks players to rank what benefits would be most or least important to be added to the service.

Epic Games
Currently, the Fortnite Crew service includes an exclusive skin, some V-Bucks and a free battle pass.

The question itself features a wide range of choices. Some are simply new ways to purchase Fortnite Crew subscriptions, like the ability to buy the service in retail stores and multi-month options.

There are also more gameplay-centric choices, including everything from custom matchmaking options to cosmetics that show off how long you’ve had a subscription. Beyond that, there’s even a choice for a monthly physical mailer with additional rewards outside of what’s given digitally.

Despite this development, it remains to be seen if the company will actually implement any changes. While this survey might indicate that the company is, at the very least, open to adding features to the service, it’s important to remember that it’s not a guarantee that they will.

Currently, the service includes a free battle pass, an exclusive Crew pack, 1000 V-Bucks and an exclusive Member’s Only emote (at least for a limited time), so the implementation of any one of the features listed in the leaked survey would be a welcome addition, especially after its rocky start.

For any updates regarding new features in the Fortnite Crew service and Fortnite in general, keep it locked to Dexerto.
