PARTY UP IN HERE! Drop in for some free gifts!


You'll be able to take part in Birthday Challenges between September 26 and October 1. If you complete these you can unlock a Wrap, Spray, Emoji, and XP.

Here's what's going down!


It wouldn't be a party without cake, especially the kind that regenerates health, rather than puts you in to a food coma.

If you're looking to get a slice of the action, we've seen a recent post by FNLeaksAndInfo via ento - Fortnite leaks, which appears to show the locations of the cakes!
