Fortnite’s 6th Birthday Event: Quests, Rewards, and More

Fortnite, the immensely popular Battle Royale game developed by Epic Games, is celebrating its 6th birthday with a special event. This annual tradition brings exciting new content, quests, and rewards for players to enjoy.

The latest Fortnite update, released on September 19th, 2023, not only introduces the birthday event but also brings back some fan-favorite items from the vault. Players can now experience the Shell Slide and Bloodhound reality augments once again. The Shell Slide augment grants shotgun shells while sliding, while the Bloodhound augment marks enemies hit by DMR shots for a short duration.

One of the highlights of Fortnite's 6th Birthday event is the Birthday Cake. Scattered across the island, this delicious red velvet treat can be consumed by players to recover their health and shield. Birthday Presents are also back, inviting players to uncover the mystery within these enticing boxes. By smashing them open with their pickaxes, players can discover various surprises.

Inflatable Balloons are another exciting addition to the event. These deceptively load-bearing items can be found on the ground or in chests and provide players with increased mobility and airborne capabilities. Additionally, the new Jump Balloon Reality Augment automatically grants players a balloon when they jump, until the maximum number of balloons is reached.

The 6th Birthday Event also introduces a set of quests for players to complete. These quests include tasks such as wishing the bus driver a happy birthday, dancing with characters in different matches, collecting Birthday Presents, landing during Fortnite's Birthday, consuming Birthday Cake, using balloons, playing matches, and downing opponents.

Completing these quests rewards players with XP and special cosmetic items for their locker. By completing one Birthday Quest, players unlock the Birthday Basher Pickaxe. Three completed quests grant them the Birthday Dash Spray, and completing five quests earns them the Slice O' Six Back Bling.

Fortnite's 6th Birthday event will run until September 26th, 2023, at 12 AM ET. Players have a limited time to participate in the event, complete quests, and earn these exclusive rewards. Don't miss out on the festivities!
