September 26, 2020, marks the 3rd year since the release of Fortnite Battle Royale.
Of course, a birthday means there’s a celebration.
So Fortnite is throwing the 3rd Birthday Bash for Battle Royale.
The Birthday Bash features challenges, exclusive rewards, a new prefab for Creative mode, and an emote for just logging in.
Read on for more details.
The birthday challenges are available between September 26 and October 1.
So make sure you complete them before time runs out to unlock the rewards, or you’ll miss out.
Here are the 4 birthday challenges:
- Play 10 matches – Reward: The Big Three spray
- Dance in front of 10 different Birthday Cakes – Reward: Cakey weapon wrap
- Outlast 500 opponents – Reward: Cupcake emoticon
- Gain 50 health or shield from Birthday Cake – Reward: 80,000 season XP
You see, the birthday challenges are very straight forward and easy to complete. You can complete all the challenges within 10 games.
But the dance in front of 10 different birthday cakes challenge could be difficult if you don’t know where to look.
Here are the 10 named locations to find birthday cakes to dance in front of:
- Lazy Lake
- Retail Row
- Dirty Docks
- Doom’s Domain
- Sweaty Sands
- Salty Springs
- Holly Hedges
- Weeping Woods
- Slurpy Swamp
- Misty Meadows
Now that you know the locations, the birthday cakes will be easy to find because they are large and surrounded by balloons.
When you complete all 4 birthday challenges, you’ll unlock the Cake back bling.
Just for logging into Fortnite between September 26 and October 1, you’ll receive the Take the Cake Emote.
The Princess Castle
Fortnite didn’t want to leave its Creative warriors out of the party. So a new set of prefabs and props are available for you to create with, the Princess Castle set.
Submit a creation using the Princess Castle set by October 6, 2020, for a chance to be featured in the first official Box Fight tournament as part of an upcoming Wild Wednesday tournament.
Read this post for submission guidelines and contest rules.
The winner’s support a creator code will be clearly presented during the Box Fight tournament. And the winner’s submission will be announced on Fortnite’s social channels, so you will get exposure to an audience of millions.
You can follow the official Fortnite Competitive Twitter account to get updates on the tournament.
I find it hard to believe that its been 3 years since the release of Fortnite Battle Royale.
The game has certainly changed a lot in those 3 years.
Even the dates that Fortnite is holding the birthday events has changed.
Confusingly, Fortnite Save the World was first released on July 25, 2017. And historically Fortnite has planned its birthday events around this date.
But 2020 is the first year that Fortnite has celebrated its birthday using the initial release of Battle Royale 26 September 2017 for the date.
Anyway, I hope you enjoy the Birthday Bash and make sure you log in before October 1 to complete all the challenges and get your rewards!
