Fortnite Season 7, week 4 is in the works, with a whole new list of challenges for you to complete (and lots of XP to earn in the process). This new set of challenges is similar to last week’s – in that almost all of them require you to go to specific, unmarked locations on the map. While these challenges aren’t necessarily difficult, they can be difficult to overcome if you don’t know where to go. A special challenge requires you to collect an apocalypse guide, as indicated in a book in blue.
Since the game doesn’t specify their location, you might get stuck. In this guide, we’ll show you everything you need to know about this challenge. This is the place to gather pre-apocalyptic guides in Fortnite.
There are two books around the map, but for the purposes of this challenge you only need to find one of them. Since both locations aren’t usually very busy, you shouldn’t have much trouble running in and getting your books, but if you do get stuck, we recommend bringing a friend so they can keep an eye on you. The map above (thanks, Fortnite.gg) shows the location of the doomsday guide in Steamy Stacks.
It is located in the building marked 03, directly opposite the large circular smoke furnace on the east side. Go inside this bottom-floor building, and you’ll find a blue doomsday guide on the ground next to a set of stairs. It’s on the east side of this building.
Alternatively, you can collect a doomsday guide at Hydro 16, the dam site to the east of the Slurpy Swamp. Go inside the east side of the large building from the south side, and you’ll see a series of stairs. To the left of the stairs is a small room containing books. It’s on the left, behind a yellow chair and next to a cupboard.
Remember, you only need to find one of the two pre-doomsday guides to complete this challenge. We recommend visiting whichever spot is closest to you regarding the Battle Bus, as you won’t be too busy once you hop out. If you’re having a hard time getting one before being eliminated, we recommend trying this in Team Rumble mode. That way, you can respawn if taken out. We also recommend trying this in team-based mode so you have some protection when hunting for books.
Once found, you will receive credits for completing the challenge, along with 30,000 XP for solving your troubles.
