Where are the Fortnite Birthday cakes locations?

For example, dealing 1000 damage will unlock a "Birthday!" emote while playing 14 matches nets you 5,000 XP. If you complete the new Save the World quest line, you can unlock the Birthday Brigade Ramirez skin. There will also be birthday cake slices around the island that will instantly give you five health points and five shield points when you eat them.

In order to celebrate Fortnite's first anniversary, Epic Games is giving players the chance to grab the World Founder's Packs at 50% off until July 30.

While Remote Explosives will be on the sidelines for the moment, Fortnite fans still have a slew of fresh weaponry with which to get acquainted, as Epic Games has expanded the in-game armory by adding the new Compact SMG. Epic has also changed things up for newcomers with new keybindings, a "sprint by default" option that saves them from having to hold down Shift, and more. You can pore through each bullet point and stat change at Epic's full patch notes here. Text layouts will now have better, more proper frame rates, and items on the ground will have their counts updated while a player is staring at them.

Most importantly, the birthday update will bring back Playground Mode. Some minor changes have made Playground Mode more fun, such as allowing gamers to switch teams and reduced spawn times.

Servers were scheduled to go down at 1am PT (9am in the UK) on Tuesday July 24, and while some outages have lasted up to 24 hours, the most recent downtime shouldn't last longer than a couple of hours. Come create, train and play with your friends. The game's latest season just started and changed the dynamic of Fortnite's map fairly significantly.

The first of the challenges involves playing 14 matches in the Battle Royale mode, which you can probably manage easily.
