Fortnite books may not be your go-to loot, but just like mastering the game, knowledge is a weapon you shouldn't ignore.

​No one can deny it, Fortnite has become a cult. It’s not just a game, but it’s the type of game today’s kids will keep playing 20 years from now. There will still be active communities and an impressive fan base, especially given the constant evolution.

Like any other successful idea, Fortnite has expanded further away from the gaming industry too. Whether you’re a serious fan or you want to surprise a Fortnite enthusiast with a great gift, here are some of the best Fortnite books you’ll find out there.

What Are The Top Fortnite Books in Terms of  Gift Value?

An Unofficial Joke Book for Fortniters, by Brian Boone (2019)

From dad jokes and kid jokes to simple jokes and more sophisticated jokes, there’s a bit of everything in this book. What do a Fortnite player and a door have in common? They get knocked a lot. I know it sounds like a dad joke, but this is one of my favorites.

I bought this book for one of my nephews, a massive Fortnite fan and player, but I couldn’t help going through it myself too. Believe it or not, this isn’t just a small book with 50 random jokes. There are more than 800 different jokes in there, something to keep every player busy between tournaments.

I'll be honest with you, some of these jokes don't make sense if you're not an avid Fortnite player, but my nephew loved the book. It's suitable for kids older than eight and can give them something to talk about with their squads. Definitely a must-have for a Fortnite player.

Fortnite: The Chronicle, by Epic Games (2020)

Whether you love Fortnite or you know someone who does, this is one of the best Fortnite books out there. And if you get it as a gift, you’ll also make a good impression because it’s an official release, rather than a fan book. However, make sure the recipient doesn’t have it already.

Anyway, the title is self-explanatory. This book celebrates Fortnite and its greatest moments from previous seasons. It comes with a unique Fortnite hologram, which acts like a seal. It's the sign of original merchandise and while it's only a seal, it's truly attractive.

Back to the book, you’ll get access to all the highlights in the history of the game. Pirate invasions, volcanoes, the so-called Ice King, you name it. There’s something for everyone in there, like a massive history book split over more seasons.

There are more editions of this book though. For a full story, make sure you get the latest release. And keep in mind, chances are a new release in this collection will be out next year too.

Fortnite: The Ultimate Trivia Book, by Epic Games (2021)

This is one of the best Fortnite books for those who think they know everything about the game and the culture around it. Indeed, Fortnite is more than just a random game and if you’ve played it before, you probably know how addictive it can get.

I see myself as a bit of a seasoned player. Sure, I’m not the best and there’s a lot I’m not even aware of. But I think this is one of the best books in this genre. It’s organized by a few different levels of difficulty, with the most challenging questions able to trick experienced players too.

In other words, this isn’t necessarily a book for kids only. Whether you’re new to the game or you think you’re an experienced player, give this trivia book a chance and you’ll be surprised by the obstacles in it. It’s a total challenge suitable for every Fortnite fan out there.

Fortnite: The Ultimate Locker, by Epic Games (2020)

I know I have this tendency to go towards official Fortnite books, but it’s not my fault. There aren’t too many fan books out there, while the official ones are so well done that they feel like collectibles. This is another masterpiece in the official collection and it won’t let you down if you love Fortnite.

This isn’t just a book, but a mix between an official guide and a resource book. It’s written like a guide for Fornite Chapter One and includes pretty much anything you’ll need to succeed. Like other Fortnite books in the official collection, it has that holographic seal that guarantees its authenticity.

You'll gain access to the pets, outfits, tools, emotes, gliders, contrails, and pretty much all the details you need to master Fortnite. While it covers more seasons, the book is well written as a general guide. It also includes a bunch of fun facts and exclusive details about various references.

Fortnite: Battle Royal Survival Guide, by Epic Games (2019)

This is another official book released by Epic Games, one that every fan should have. The guide is aimed at Battle Royale fans and includes any tip and trick you can think of. Best part about it is you’ll find a series of exclusive ideas, something that even professional players have something to learn from.

Tutorials are full color and crystal clear. Even if you’re totally new to Fortnite, you’ll get used to everything in no time. It’s easy to understand and prompt. And of course, like all the books from Epic Games, it comes with the holographic mark for authenticity.

Like I said, this is one of those official Fortnite books suitable for both newbies and experienced players. Implement one thing at a time, get used to it and you’ll become a Battle Royale top player in no time. It’s an essential guide that helps people master every single aspect of the game.

All in all, the book shows you how to be a better player, as well as a smarter player. It’s a creative guide introducing you to sneaky survival techniques, offering detailed island guides too, where to go, and what to loot.

Plenty of action, gaming options, and countless players to team up with or play against, there's something for everyone out there. But whether you're completely new or a seasoned player, there's always something in there to learn about.

Nicholas Merlino has created the ultimate guide for Fortnite players and covers everything related to Battle Royale. It feels like it’s mainly aimed at complete newbies. No matter how good or new you are, you can always get better and that’s what this guide is going to do.

Amazing Coloring Book for Fortniters, by Joystick Publishing (2019)

My list of Fortnite books couldn’t be complete without a coloring book. I know, there are lots of books out there, but this is probably the most comprehensive one. Aimed at kids under 12, I’ll be honest with you, it’s pretty well-detailed and makes a good choice for Fortnite adult fans looking to relax too.

Whether you’re a fan of Fortnite or you want to surprise your kid, this book is excellent. It offers access to great vehicles, skins, scenes, characters, you name it. And once you’re done with a page, you’ll see art unfolding in front of your eyes.

There are more than 30 of your favorite characters in the game, as well as items and loot coloring pages. The best part? Battle pages. They’re complicated and challenging, but the amount of small details won’t disappoint you.

Overall, there are 124 pages in this book, so there’s plenty of coloring to do. Whoever you get this for, make sure you also include a set of colored pencils.

Bottom line
