Fortnite challenge guide: Where to find literature samples

One of the challenges in Fortnite season 6, week 2 requires you to obtain literature samples from Pleasant Park, Lazy Lake, and Retail Row. While the concept itself is easy enough to understand, there are a couple of things you should know about this challenge before attempting to complete it. The first point is that you must complete the prerequisite before being able to go for this challenge.

The prerequisite given to you by Lara Croft is for utilizing five different zip lines. For that, we recommend visiting The Spire in the middle of the map, as there are multiple zip lines for you to use. Once you’ve ridden five different zip lines, back out to the main menu, and you’ll be able to start finding literature samples. There are five in total, but for the purposes of this challenge, you only need to find four.

In this guide, we’ll outline the locations for all five. Here’s where to obtain literature samples from Pleasant Park, Lazy Lake, and Retail Row in Fortnite.
