Get your plate ready, because the Fortnite birthday challenges are here to celebrate three years of the battle royale. To tick off this list of party tasks you'll need to find Fortnite birthday cake locations, so you can dance in front of them as well as eating a slice for some health or shield, leading to rewards such as wraps, emotes, and more. The celebrations run until Friday October 2, so don't hang around and get up to speed as we lay out everything you need to know about this year's Fortnite birthday challenges.

For this year's third birthday celebrations in Fortnite, you need to complete these four key challenges:

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

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.
