Fortnite - Doomsday preppers guide locations: Where to collect doomsday preppers guide explained

Meta guidance.

Collect doomsday preppers guide is one of the legendary quests in Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 7.

This challenge is only available during Week 4 of this season and, to unlock it, you must first search for farm clues, visit Farmer Steel's favourite places and place missing person signs.

There are two locations where you can find the doomsday preppers guide, but you only need to grab it once. Aside from other players getting in the way, it's a rather straightforward challenge if you know exactly where to look so you can plan a fast escape.

Completing this Fortnite challenge will help you level up and unlock more Battle Stars for the Season 7 Battle Pass skins.

On this page:

Note this particular challenge is no longer able to be completed. What's new? Chapter 4 Season 2 has arrived! New additions include the Grind Rails and Kinetic Blades, along with the new Battle Pass, character collection and Eren Jaeger skin. It's a good idea to know how to get XP fast in Fortnite.

Story Trailer For Fortnite Chapter 2 - Season 7

Doomsday preppers guide location in Steamy Stacks

There is a set location for you to find the doomsday preppers guide in Steamy Stacks.

Below is a map with the exact spot as shown from the overview:

Steamy Stacks is a big place and it may not be clear with the map alone, but don't fret. All you have to do is enter the tower that is right before the second reactor (if you're looking at the map).

It has a distinct set of doors, which are orange, in both ground and first floor levels. If you land from the bus on top of the first floor, that's okay. Just head down using the ladders and, once on the first floor, turn around to see the guide on the floor next to the ladder and some boxes.

If you end up landing closer to Slurpy Swamp or Misty Meadows, there's another chance for you to grab this item.

Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 2 is here and with it comes Force Abilites and Lightsabers in the Star Wars 2023 event and a new selection of Battle Pass skins! Take a look at the Eren Jaeger skin too! If this is something you want, take a look at our challenge guides that show you the Jaeger's Family Basement location, plus how to find and use ODM Gear. Don't forget to complete the new challenges, including winning arcade games, knocking back players with the Kinetic Blade, shooting targets while on a Grind Rail and restoring health or shields on a Grind Rail. Meanwhile, learn what the best weapons are, new map changes, how to get XP fast, use the best PC settings, earn the Victory Umbrella and earn a Victory Crown.

Doomsday preppers guide location in Hydro 16

There is a landmark east of Slurpy Swamp called Hydro 16, which is basically an abandoned factory of sorts. In here you can find another doomsday preppers guide. So if you happen to be in the area, you can grab this one instead and complete the challenge without needing to deviate to Steamy Stacks.

Below is a map with the exact spot as shown from the overview:

Looking at the in-game map, we recommend you to take the northern entrance to Hydro 16. Get through the door and you'll see machinery around you.

If you look at the other side of the interior, you'll notice a light blue door with its windows broken.

It's exactly at the side of the staircase that leads upstairs. Instead of going up, you're gonna want to open that door and look at the ground to your left. There's the doomsday preppers guide.

That's all the locations you can use to complete this challenge!
