While it doesn’t necessarily dominate streaming platforms like it once did, Fortnite has millions of fans around the world who will be incredibly keen to dive into its birthday content and get everything Epic is offering up.

Fortnite 6th Birthday Challenges

The Birthday event challenges are now live in-game, ready to be completed as soon as you can for the exclusive rewards.

Most of the challenges are quite straightforward, but others are directly related to the birthday theme, requiring players to consume birthday cakes that are spread around Fortnite’s map, collect Birthday presents, and much more.

These new challenges sound difficult at first, but are fairly simple and can be completed rather quickly. So players shouldn’t need too much help or guidance in ticking these off.
