A new set of challenges is live Fortnite season 5, week 7, and while most are self-explanatory, a few can be a bit tricky. One that’s likely to cause some trouble is Ragnarok’s first challenge, which requires you to collect books from Holly Hedges and Sweaty Sands. There are five in all, and they spawn in fixed locations.
To complete this challenge you will need to collect all five books and remember that they can be collected in any order across multiple matches. One thing you should be aware of, however, is that the progress of the challenges this week seems to have been bugged. Epic Games is aware of the issue – the company is “investigating”
With that being said, here are all five locations of the books needed to make it Fortnite challenge.
Books in Holly Hedges
Remember, you can get these books in any order you want. We started with Holly Hedges first, but you can visit Sweaty Sands earlier if you want. As long as you collect all five, you get credit (after the progression bug is fixed, of course).
These are the book locations in Holly Hedges.
The first can be found on the bottom floor of the northernmost house in Holly Hedges. It’s on the floor next to a bookshelf.
The next is to the east, in a house on the corner. Again, this one is on the ground floor and is near a window to the right of the main entrance.
The last book of this area is located south of the previous one, in Holly Hedges’ most southeast house. This is located to the right of the fireplace, in the room to the left of the main entrance.
Books at Sweaty Sands
Next up is Sweaty Sands, and there are two books to collect here.
Get the first book in the middle house, in the south part of Sweaty Sands. Open the front door and you’ll find him behind the bed, next to the counter.
The last book is just to the east of the previous one, across the street. It is found in the most southeastern house in Sweaty Sands, on the bottom floor, next to the stairs.
Grab it and you’ll get credit for completing the challenge along with 20,000 XP. Keep in mind that you may have trouble logging progress during the quest so if this happens don’t be alarmed – Epic Games is currently working on a fix. You may want to wait until the day after the challenges go live to actually start them, just in case.
