As many Fortnite fans are well aware, Epic Games has remained diligent when it comes to providing a continuous amount of tweaks and updates for the title's free-to-play Battle Royale portion.

These include playing 14 matches to unlock 5,000 XP, dealing 1,000 damage to enemies for a delicious cupcake emoticon, and dancing in front of 10 different birthday cakes for a birthday spray. Moreover, we have added the description along with the locations of the cakes so players can find it easy to locate them.

So first up, Fortnite Battle Royale is getting a new SMG. Instead of the 50 points of health and shields at 1 point per second that the item restores now, Slurp Juice will grant players 75 points at 2 points per second, prioritizing health and only recovering shields once player HP has been filled.

The return of Playground LTM hits tomorrow, July 25, and it will bring with it new team select options that let you and your set up team battles for practice for training. The Battle Bus has now been adorned to celebrate the day, as well as the map featuring birthday cake that will contribute towards special challenges and also grant +5 health and shields when consumed. Players have the chance to unlock a birthday-themed llama with event tickets earned throughout the quests. Fortnite is preparing its first birthday party, and you're all invited.

Mini games have been a new addition for season 5 with the introduction of toy cosmetic items and players can now play basketball and golf.

Fortnite Birthday event - What are the challenges? And of course, to keep the party going, the Battlebus and Supply Drops have all been decorated to celebrate! You can read the full list of patch notes for the game on Fortnite's website. You can claim them by completing the in-game challenges and quests.
