Fortnite birthday cakes have made a welcome return, with the birthday cakes central to completing a number of new Fortnite challenges. Last week Epic Games launched their Fortnite Birthday Bash event as the hit Battle Royale game celebrated its third birthday. Typically Fortnite birthday celebrations happen in July, which is when Save the World launched in early access back in 2017.
But this time around the Fortnite birthday festivities have kicked off in September, the month the free-to-play Battle Royale mode launched.
The Fortnite Birthday Bash event brings with it themed challenges, rewards as well as an emote for simply logging in.
And key to solving two of the Fortnite Birthday Bash challenges are the locations of the Fortnite birthday cakes.
In total Battle Royale players can find 10 birthday cakes dotted around the map.
The locations of the Fortnite birthday cakes are central to solving two new challenges: dance in front of different birthday cakes and gain health or shield from birthday cake.
