Fortnite birthday quests have made a return for 2021, and although it doesn’t feel like it we’re already here celebrating four years of the battle royale. Custom dictates that deliveries of Fortnite birthday cakes are made at this time of year to named locations across the land, while the Battle Bus has received a fresh coat of paint and a musical update to an anniversary calypso tune as we fly into another match of Fortnite.
Although the cakes take center stage during this event, there are also Fortnite birthday presents to find and deploy to access high-tier weapons, and exclusive reward items to add to your locker for ticking off these challenges. The celebrations end on September 28, so don’t leave it too late to complete these Fortnite birthday quests.
Fortnite Birthday Quests 2021
For this year’s fourth birthday celebrations, you need to complete these three Fortnite birthday quests presented on the special birthday event punchcard by Birthday Brigade Ramirez:
- Dance in front of Cakes (4)
- Consume Birthday Cakes in different matches (4)
- Throw Birthday Presents (4)
The main thing to remember is that these quests 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.
Fortnite Birthday Quests Rewards
Rather than each Fortnite birthday quest having a fixed reward, there are three items in total to unlock from the B-D4Y set and you’ll receive them in the following order as you progress:
- Complete a Birthday Quest – Hooplah Hammer harvesting tool
- Complete two Birthday Quests – 4 Me??? back bling
- Complete three Birthday Quests – 4? Score! emoticon
Fortnite Birthday Cake Locations
There are large Fortnite birthday cakes dotted all around the island, in every named location except for Boney Burbs, and we’ve marked their locations on the map above so you can go directly to them – handy when lots of other players are also trying to visit them. For one of the Fortnite birthday quests you have to dance in front of four cakes, so get your best emotes ready, while another tasks you to consume birthday cakes in four different matches, so interact with the slices laid out around the main dessert for a health and shield boost.
Fortnite Birthday Presents Locations
The other quest requires you to throw Fortnite birthday presents, and this is the toughest of the three as these gift boxes can only be found as random floor loot, so it is somewhat down to luck if and when you discover them. Our best advice is to search in and around buildings at built-up areas, while keeping an eye out for the glowing gifts and grabbing one whenever you spot it. Once you pick up a Fortnite birthday present you’ll then need to aim and throw to deploy it, and don’t forget to smash your way inside afterwards to find a high-rarity weapon.
