From now through August 7, players dropping into Epic Games' popular battle royale Fortnite will be treated to a series of birthday-themed challenges in celebration of the game's one-year anniversary. Two of the main challenges are simple, but the third involves seeking out different birthday cakes and dancing in front of them in true celebratory style. Keep reading to learn more about the birthday cakes in Fortnite, including a map of their locations and more information about the game's new birthday-themed rewards.
Fortnite Birthday Cake Dance Challenge
The first two of the three new birthday challenges in Fortnite are fairly straightforward: one challenge tasks players with playing 14 matches in Battle Royale mode, which shouldn't be difficult at all and offers up 5,000 XP as a reward; the second involves dealing 1,000 points of damage, which again should not cause players any undue difficulty, and unlocks the Fortnite Birthday emoticon as a reward. The third and final challenge is a little more tricky, as it tasks players with seeking out and dancing in front of 10 different birthday cakes spread all across the Fortnite map. For their efforts, players will be rewarded with a special new Happy Birthday spray. For completing all challenges, players will also be able to unlock the Birthday Cake Back Bling as well as the new Birthday Bridge Ramirez hero.
