Fortnite - Books on explosions locations: Where to search for books on explosions explained


Searching for books on explosions is the fourth of Week 12's legendary quests in Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 7. Due to being a legendary quest, you only have a week to complete this challenge.

This set begins with you using a payphone to receive new instructions, before asking you to craft weapons with Alien Nanites and, in the third quest, destroying target dummies.

Completing this challenge will reward you with 30k XP, which will help you unlock more Battle Stars for the Season 7 battle pass. You'll also be able to begin the next quest in the set - deploy scanners in the Alien Biome.

New additions include Reality Seeds and Saplings and riding animals, along with the new Battle Pass, characters collection and map changes. It's a good idea to know how to get XP fast in Fortnite.
