To celebrate the birthday of its survival/crafting/Battle Royale third-person shooter, Epic Games has announced a limited in-game event for Fortnite. It starts on July 24th and players can earn different cosmetics by completing challenges and quests.
The challenges in question are the following:
- Deal 1,000 damage to opponents to unlock the Fortnite Birthday Emoticon
- Dance at different birthday cakes to unlock the Happy Birthday Spray
- Play 14 matches to unlock 5,000 XP.
- Complete all 3 challenges to earn the Birthday Cake Back Bling
With each completed challenge, a different piece of the birthday set will be unlocked. If you finished the Fortnite Birthday questline in Save the World, then Birthday Brigade Ramirez will be unlocked as a hero.
It’s also possible to earn tickets for Birthday Llamas. Excluding quest rewards, they contain heroes and weapons from all events that have taken place this year. Whether the loot pool will be too crowded or not for getting specific items remains to be seen.
