Fortnite’s Week 7 challenges are here for Battle Royale enthusiasts to complete. One of them requires you to collect five books from Holly Hedges & Sweaty Sands and we can instruct you how to do this in Fortnite Season 5.

One of this week’s Fortnite challenges needs you to venture into Holly Hedges and Sweaty Sands to retrieve a total of five books.

It’s one of eight different challenges you’ll need to do for Week 7 and brings us another week closer to the end of Season 5. The beauty of Fortnite is that we don’t know why this needs to be done, we know only that it must be done if we want glorious XP.

The books aren’t too difficult to find. When you do manage to locate five of them you’ll be one step closer to completing all of the Week 7 challenges that Epic Games have set you.

Just follow our guide and you should have this challenge done in no time.

Fortnite book #1

Our first one can be found in the top-left corner of Holly Hedges. It’s in a big yellow house. When you walk through the door, take a few steps in and you’ll see a bookcase on the left. The book should be on the floor next to it.

Fortnite book #2

Number two is situated in the top-right corner of Holly Hedges. You’ll come to an older-looking, wooden house.

Enter it and go through the first archway on the right. Keep going through until you reach the room with the yellow carpet. The book is tucked away in the corner on the right when you first enter the room.

Fortnite book #3

We’re staying in Holly Hedges for #3. This one is near the bottom-right corner of the POI.

Enter a building that has the door on the right side of it and open your first door on your left. You should see a big fireplace. Next to the fireplace lies your third book to pick up.

Fortnite book #4

Now we’re heading over to Sweaty Sands for our final two. The fourth book is fairly central in the area and can be found in a blue and brown house. Make your way inside and head just past the bed. The book should be lying on the floor to collect.

Fortnite book #5

Our final book is actually very close to the location of the last one. After leaving the last house, simply cross to the opposite side of the road and enter the first house you see.

Enter the left-most door and just before the stairs. There, you’ll find a smaller bookcase. The fifth book is on the floor in front of it.

Chonkers in Fortnite Season 6

Epic Games have finally brought vehicle modifications to Fortnite in Chapter 2 Season 6 so that you can upgrade cars with different add-ons, and here’s everything you need to know about this.

Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 6 has quickly won over fans with its various new additions, including weapon crafting, tamable wild animals, and a whole new set of quests in the new Battle Pass. Now, Epic Games have added another neat feature.

Modified vehicles had been teased by leakers a while back, and a few fans noticed their presence in trailers for the new season. Now, the v16.20 update, has finally brought vehicle mods to the battle royale.

What do Fortnite Chonkers tires do?

The first vehicle mods to be released in Fortnite are new tires known as Chonkers, and these let you ride up steep surfaces such as hills. They also provide you with a better grip and bouncy suspension when driving off-road.

Additionally, once you’ve found a pile of these tires, you can use them for cover during combat situations where enemies have surrounded you. This makes them worth chasing after the next time you acquire a vehicle.

Where to find Chonkers in Fortnite

These modifications can be found within some new structures that have appeared at various garages around The Island. You’ll be able to acquire at least one of these tires by visiting any of the various gas stations.

Luckily, these are spread out all over the map, and once you visit them, you can find Chonkers either lying on the floor or among stacks of tires. You take a look at their locations below:

How to use Chonkers tires in Fortnite

Now that you know where to find the Chonkers tires in Fortnite, you’ll just need to know how to use them. Luckily they’re fairly easy to put together if you know where they are, and all you need is a vehicle to modify.

Once you’ve acquired a car, here’s what you need to do:

  1. Visit the garage at Catty Corner, and enter the building where Sparkplug spawns
  2. Find the Chonkers tires lying on the ground and pick them up.
  3. Hold aim and throw the Chonkers tires directly at your car.

That’s all there is to it! Now, you’ll be able to enjoy traveling off-road and up steep surfaces such as hills with relative ease. These new tires have different behavior on dirt, grass, or the road, which makes them difficult for enemies to pop.

Epic Games will also add more vehicle mods in Fortnite Season 6 soon, and those will have different effects on your vehicles. A few leakers have previously hinted at the future arrival of Mounted Guns in the game at some point.

We’ll keep checking for the locations of more garages that contain vehicle mods, and will update this guide as soon as we find them.

In the meanwhile, the v16.20 update has also brought new bows, and a Duos cup that you can participate in to unlock Aloy from Horizon Zero Dawn for completely free!

How to unlock Horizon Zero Dawn Aloy skin in Fortnite

Aloy from Horizon Zero Dawn will be coming to Fortnite Season 6 as a new skin, and here’s how you can get your hands on it.

Alloy in Fortnite Season 6

Some new Fortnite leaks have revealed that Chapter 2, Season 6 will feature a Horizon Zero Dawn crossover in the form of an LTM, and the protagonist Aloy will be coming as a new skin.

Epic Games love surprising Fortnite fans by introducing crossover content to the battle royale. Season 5 brought in skins from Street Fighter, Terminator, and God of War among others. Now, the devs have some more planned for Season 6.

The Battle Pass already features Tomb Raider’s Lara Croft and Rebirth Raven from the Teen Titans. Now, Aloy from Horizon Zero Dawn will be making her way to the battle royale’s Item Shop as a new skin, and here’s how you can unlock her.

Fortnite Aloy Cup

Notable Fortnite data miner HYPEX stated that Aloy’s skin will become available in-game from April 15, and Epic Games will also add a Horizon Zero Dawn-themed LTM to the battle royale.

You’ll be able to get the entire Horizon Zero Dawn Bundle entirely for free by participating in the PS4 and PS5 exclusive Aloy Cup that’s scheduled for April 14, 2021. The bundle will be awarded to the top-performing teams a day before it arrives in the Item Shop.

Bonus points will be given for eliminations with a bow, which is Aloy’s signature weapon in Horizon Zero Dawn. Adding Aloy to Fortnite makes perfect sense as the new season is titled “Primal” and Horizon Forbidden West will release later this year.

You’ll be able to compete in 10 Duos matches over three hours to score as many eliminations as you can. If you want to participate, then you can find out the time for your region by checking the Compete tab in the game.

There will also be a new LTM titled “Lead Alloy” which will reportedly include a team-up between Aloy and Lara Croft. This will grant you the opportunity to upgrade all weapons to Legendary rarity.

We’ll keep checking for any more details about Fortnite’s Horizon Zero Dawn crossover, and will update you as soon as we learn something new.

Vehicle mods

Vehicle mods have long been rumored for Fortnite, and finally they have arrived courtesy of the April 13 update. Epic teased their arrival by tweeting: “Trick out your ride with new wheels,” hinting at the fact that players can now equip new items that have different uses depending on terrain.

New Bows & Duos Cup

On top of vehicle mods, there are also two new Bows for players to use, with the Grappler and Splinter Bow introduced in the 16.30 update.

The Splinter Bow will deal 100 damage to players, making it a useful tool to have in your inventory, while the Grappler Bow will let users zipline across the map.

The introduction of the two new bows will also lead to a “special Duos Cup,” with the bows acting as the weapon of choice.

On top of that, Creative Mode is about to get a whole lot bigger, with 50 player matchmaking now enabled.
