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.

Above is a map of all five literature sample locations (thanks, Fortnite.gg). As you can see, there are two in Pleasant Park, two in Lazy Lake, and one in Retail Row. They can be collected in any order, and your progress carries over from one match to the next. Literature samples are found in bookshelves across the map, so keep your eyes peeled for them as you hunt for these items.

Here are the individual locations of all five literature samples.

Retail Row

First, head to the building toward the south with the pool. You’ll want to navigate to the bottom floor, where you’ll find this literature sample in a room beneath a poster that reads “Lazy Lake Spa.”

Second literature sample

The final sample is located in the large house on the western side of this area. It’s just north of the southwestern-most house on the bottom floor.

After you’ve gathered four out of the five, you’ll complete the challenge and earn 24,000 XP.

Where to find Vendetta Flopper in Lego Fortnite
Characters fishing in LEGO Fortnite.

The fishing update to Lego Fortnite added, you guessed it, the ability to fish once you've made yourself a rod. Of course, since fish didn't exist in the game before this, an entire school of undersea life needed to be created. Every fish you can catch has a different benefit, from restoring a bunch of health when you eat it to giving you some kind of buff. The rarest and most useful fish is certainly the Vendetta Flopper, making it the most coveted catch in the game. While fishing is still heavily dependent on luck, you won't even have a chance at this fish unless you know where to cast your line.
Where to find the Vendetta Flopper

Before you even attempt to attempt this legendary catch, make sure you're ready with an Epic fishing rod and Epic Bait Bucket to give yourself the best chance at a rare catch. The nest step is to only cast into the glowing purple zones that indicate the presence of rare fish. Fishing in any other part of the water won't yield the Vendetta Flopper we're after.

All Legendary Schematics in Palworld and where to find them
A giant pal uses a minigun in Palworld.

Despite featuring all the various types of Pals in Palworld so heavily, they are not actually the most effective way to fight. Sure, they will help you out, and a Legendary can certainly pull its weight in a battle, but you will mostly be relying on your own character to do the work. This is what makes crafting new weapons and armor so important. Most of these you can access simply by leveling up and getting the required materials to make them, but the best of the best can only be made after finding their schematics. If you want only the top-tier gear in Palworld, then you will be hunting for the Legendary Schematics. These will give you access to a range of otherwise unobtainable weapons and armor that can make you all but invincible. Here is how you can get these blueprints for yourself in Palworld.
All Legendary Schematics

There are only nine Legendary Schematics in Palworld, with six dedicated to weapons and the remaining three for armor. Each one is a drop from a specific Alpha Pal in the open world. Note that you are not guaranteed a Legendary Schematic drop. These are rare, probably below 10%, so you will almost certainly have to repeat these battles to get the schematics. Here is a list of your targets and where to find them.
Crossbow Legendary Schematic
The crossbow upgrade boosts your attack to 490 and can be picked up by defeating the level 23 Bushi. It is located at coordinates 1116, 491.
Handgun Legendary Schematic
The Legendary handgun completely transforms the nearly useless base model by upping its attack to 625. Get it by defeating the level 29 Beakon at coordinates 345, -253.
Assault Rifle Legendary Schematic
Who doesn't love the Assault Rifle? Make it deal 560 damage after taking down a level 49 Blazmut waiting at coordinates 434, 532.
Old Bow Legendary Schematic
If you want a bow that smacks enemies with 247 damage arrows, you need to grind out Kingpaca at coordinates 50, -460.
Pump-Action Shotgun Legendary Schematic
If you're a fan of CQC, the shotgun schematic will buff your damage to 385. Suzaku will hold it and is a level 45 Pal found at coordinates 404, 255.
Rocket Launcher Legendary Schematic
Look, sometimes you just need a problem-solver. A Rocket Launcher dealing 14,000 damage can't be argued with in that regard. You'll have to take on the level 50 Jetragon at coordinates 788, 320.
Cloth Armor Legendary Schematic
Not quite on the level as the following two, this schematic is great for the mid game with 112 HP, 24 Defense, and 250 Durability. You only need to beat a level 11 Chillete at coordinates 175, -420.
Pal Metal Helmet Legendary Schematic
This shiny new helmet offers 560 HP, 1,200 Durability, and 240 Defense. Grab it early to make getting the rest of the schematics easier, but you will have to overcome level 50 Frostallion at coordinates -355, 55.
Heat and Cold Resistant Pal Metal Armor Legendary Schematic
Both the Legendary Heat and Cold Resistant Pal Metal Armor drop from the same target. Both have equal stats and give 1,200 HP, 11,000 Durability, and 400 Defense. And, of course, they resist hot and cold weather respectively. You will need to take down the level 50 Paladius up north at coordinates 445, 680.
