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.

Where to find books in Fortnite’s Holly Hedges and Sweaty Sands

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.

Where to find the black box in Fortnite’s Week 9 challenge

A Fortnite Season 5 weekly challenges requires you to find a black box at the crashed plane site. Here’s how you can get this done.

Fortnite black box location

One of Fortnite’s Season 5 Week 9 challenges requires you to find a black box at the crashed plane site. We’ve made it easier to find with the help of a useful map.

Fortnite Season 5 is set to end on March 16, and we’re now in week 9 of the update. This means that there are brand new weekly challenges for you to complete, and you have the opportunity to progress through the Battle Pass.

Week 9’s challenges are simple compared to previous weeks since you’ll mostly do tasks like dealing damage in water and shaking down IO Guards. One of these Epic Quests requires you to find a crashed plane’s black box.

Where to find the black box in Fortnite Season 5

To find the black box, you’ll have to make your way towards the location of the crashed plane, which is at the northwesternmost point of the map. It’s close to the Coral Castle POI on Fortnite Island.

It’s likely that you’ve already been to this area before since it’s usually rich in loot for you to collect. That leads to it also being filled with a high amount of player traffic, so you should be ready for a battle when you head over there.

We’ve made things a bit easier for you by marking the exact location on the map below.

The plane has been split into three parts, and you can find the black box near the middle section. Head over to the marked spot on the map, and you’ll be able to interact with it. That will result in you receiving 20,000 XP in the challenge.

At the moment, we don’t know for sure if this crashed plane will have some sort of major relevance to future events in the battle royale, but it wouldn’t be too surprising if it did. Stealthy Stronghold ended up being tied to the Predator crossover.

That wraps up this relatively simple challenge. You can earn some serious XP, and unlock brand new cosmetics by completing Epic and Legendary quests, so be sure to check out our Fortnite Season 5 Week 9 challenges guide.

Where to find Hidden Bunkers for Fortnite Week 9 challenge

Fortnite Season 5 Week 9’s challenge has players visit a hidden bunker, so here’s where to find them in Chapter 2.

Published

Fortnite bunker door

Fortnite Season 5’s Week 9 Quests ask you to find a hidden bunker, so here are the locations for all three on the Fortnite map.

Bunkers have been a source of intrigue for Fortnite players since Chapter 1 when a mysterious bunker door arrived in Weeping Woods. No matter how the map changed, the bunker remained.

When the original map was destroyed and Fortnite moved onto a new island, these bunkers returned. Still, nobody knows what these bunkers are for, but with us only being a few weeks away from Season 6, perhaps we’ll know the answer then.

The Season 5 Week 9 challenges, which begin on January 28, ask players to visit one of these bunkers for 20,000 XP, so here are their locations.

Fortnite Hidden Bunker locations

There are three bunkers spread out across the Fortnite Chapter 2 map, and all of them difficult to find if you don’t know where to go. One is hidden underwater, one under a shack, and the last behind a bush at the very edge of the map.

To make things easy for you, we’ve put together a map showing where these bunkers are.

Fortnite bunker locations

The first bunker is in the bay off the coast directly to the south of Holly Hedges. Swim out to sea as if you’re going off the map, and dive under the water and you’ll find the hidden bunker.

The second bunker is found at the very north of the map on the island to the north-west of Craggy Cliffs. It will be found under a shack on the east side of the island. Simply break open the wall underneath the shack and you’ll have found the bunker.

The third bunker is on the cliffs to the south-east of Retail Row. Go along the cliffs to the east of Retail Row and you’ll stumble upon a large bush in-between two trees. Destroy the bush and you’ll find the bunker underneath.

The leaked Quests ask you to ‘”Find a hidden bunker???” so the first bunker may be the only one that will work for this challenge, as it pings with ‘???’ when you first visit it. So we recommend visiting this bunker first, but any of the three will likely work.
