It’s that time of year again: when Fortnite birthday challenges appear and everyone looks for Fortnite birthday cake locations to eat, and dance in front of, in order to win rewards, wraps and emotes. If you want to know where and what is going on, then here’s everything we know about this year’s Fortnite birthday challenges.

Fortnite Birthday challenges

The information so far, via Fortnite datamining has identified these four key Fortnite challenges for the third birthday celebrations: 

Play matches (10)Dance in front of different Birthday Cakes (10)Outlast Opponents (500)Gain health or shield from Birthday Cake (50)

This list of Fortnite birthday challenges is also doing the rounds which looks bigger but also like it includes tasks and rewards from previous birthdays if you didn’t get them before. Either way expect to play matches and eat cake as a main activity.

It looks like, as with previous years, each challenge comes with its own reward, with one final big prize at the end for completing all the required tasks in total. The main thing is that these challenges are easy to the point of not really needing any effort to complete. It’s a celebration after all so the focus is more on showing up, playing Fortnite and having fun. The rewards are more about having a souvenir than proving anything about your playing ability. So just enjoy yourself and you’ll be literally covered in cake before you know it.

Okay, year 1 Fortnite birthday cakes for reference in the picture up there, but it’s the same deal every year. There will be tables with cakes on, and slices you can eat for a health and shield boost scattered around most of the named locations on the map. Sometimes on the outskirts, sometimes in the center. Basically if you’re having trouble finding the Fortnite birthday cake locations drop in or head to the nearest named place on the map and you’ll find some spread out nearby.
