Fortnite Is Getting Special Challenges For Its Birthday

Log in this weekend to level up your battle pass with additional experience.


Epic Games has fully detailed what it's offering for Fortnite's third birthday. Birthday challenges are available through October 1 and let you unlock a wrap, spray, emoji, and experience, as well as a cake back bling for finishing them all. All players who log in during this time will get a special emote, and Creative mode even gets a new castle.

Fortnite's birthday is this weekend and Epic Games is celebrating with new challenges. We don't have firm details yet, but Epic said it would release more information this weekend when the challenges drop.

"Tomorrow Fortnite celebrates its 3rd Birthday!" the studio said in a tweet. "Join us for Birthday Challenges which include free rewards!"

Patch notes sent to some Fortnite players in the support-a-creator program say that the challenges will give players additional experience and rewards. Dataminers have found files for new weapon and vehicle wraps, so it looks like we may get some special wrapping paper skins for our shotguns this weekend.

Previous birthday events, with unique challenges and cake, have taken place in July. Epic Games may have had to delay this years due to the pandemic.

Yesterday's weekly Fortnite update brought a lot to the game. Wolverine is now roaming around Weeping Woods. If players manage to take him out then they'll get to use his claws to cut up the competition. Don't forget to complete all the Wolverine challenges to unlock a special skin before the season ends. This week's challenges include making a Stark robot dance and destroying Gorgers.
