Fortnite is celebrating its 4th birthday, and to commemorate the special occasion, a delicious batch of birthday quests and rewards are now available. If you need help getting started, or you’ve already started and need help completing one or more of the game's birthday quests, we’ve got you covered.

Below, you’ll find the list of all birthday quests and how to complete them all in Fortnite! 

Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 8 | How to Complete All Birthday Quests

 

  • Dance In Front of Birthday Cakes (4) 
  • Consume Birthday Cakes in Different Matches (4)
  • Throw Birthday Presents (4) 

In total, there are three birthday quests for Fortnite players to complete in celebration of the game’s 4th birthday. Given that it’s the game’s 4th birthday, it should come as no surprise that you’ll need to do each task four times. 

To help make things even easier, here’s how to complete each birthday quest! 

How to Dance in Front of Birthday Cakes

 
To complete this birthday quest, you’ll need to track down birthday cakes in the game and then use an emote in front of them. This process should be relatively easy as birthday cakes can be found at all named locations.

For example, Weeping Woods, Catty Corner, Misty Meadows, Dirty Docks, Pleasant Park, and more. Naturally, the smaller the named location, the easier it is to find where the birthday cake is.

For example, at Catty Corner you'll spot the birthday cake smack dab in the center of the area near the gas station. Not sure what to look for? In the image above, you can see what these birthday cakes look like in order to better help you find them. 

How to Consume Birthday Cakes in Different Matches

 
To complete this birthday quest, you’ll need to once again track down birthday cakes in the game. However, instead of dancing in front of them, you’re going to want to look for small birthday cake slices on the ground surrounding the birthday cake. 

In the image above, you’ll see what these cake slices look like. When you find them, approach them and consume them like you would any other edible item in the game.

Note that you'll either need to have Health or Shield room available as eating cake slices will give you small increases to your Health or Shields. If both are maxed out, you won't be able to eat the cake slices. 

How to Throw Birthday Presents

 
Unlike the previous two birthday quests, this one is a little different in that you need to find and throw birthday presents. What’s fun about this task is that birthday presents can be broken open and inside you’ll find some decent weapons and items. 

Unfortunately, birthday presents can be somewhat difficult to track down given their Legendary rarity. During our time in the game, we primarily found birthday presents as floor loot. 

Note that you’ll tend to find birthday presents at named locations within the vicinity of the birthday cakes you dance near and cake slices you consume. For example, at Weeping Woods we found a birthday present in the building right next to the birthday cake. 

We also found birthday presents in buildings near the location of the birthday cake at Slurpy Swamp.

Once you have the birthday present in your inventory, you're going to want to equip it like you would a weapon and then aim and throw it like you would a grenade. Using your pickaxe, break open the present, then scoop up any items inside that you want to keep. 


As you complete birthday quests in Fortnite, you’ll earn special rewards. Below, we’ve listed all of the rewards you can earn by completing birthday quests in Fortnite.
