Most exciting for Fortnite Battle Royale fans will be the birthday themed cosmetics that can be unlocked by completing challenges and quests in-game. There are a total of three “Birthday Challenges” and, in Epic’s words, each challenge that you complete will “unlock a slice of the birthday cosmetic set”.
