For players looking to achieve those coveted unlocks in the later tiers of the Battle Pass, earning XP fast in Fortnite is essential.
Getting there requires a significant time sink, but with a bit of planning and focused gameplay you can significantly speed up the process.
It’s not uncommon for Epic Games to put the most sought after unlockables at the top of the Battle Pass, with the likes of Darth Vader and Spider-Man featuring as the most recent fan favourites.
From daily quests to party bonuses, today we’re taking a look at all the ways you can get XP fast in Fortnite, while having lots of fun along the way!
Complete Daily Quests
With each new day comes a new daily quest to undertake, rewarding you with a chunk of XP upon completion. Although individual quests don’t offer the most XP in the game, completing them each day will accumulate significant gains over time.
You can have a maximum of 3 quests active at any one time, and they’ll be replenished at the rate of one per day. That means you don’t need to worry if you miss a day or two, as you’ll be able to log back in and catch up.
Fortnite daily quests usually have simple, quick objectives and shouldn’t take longer than a few minutes to complete. You’ll receive a new quest at 6 AM PT / 9 AM ET / 2 PM BST every day.
By completing daily quests, you’ll automatically work towards daily bonus goals, providing even more XP!
Complete Weekly Quests
In addition to daily quests, Epic Games releases a batch of seven weekly quests each week in Fortnite. These quests usually have longer, more complex objectives, and often make use of new or unusual gameplay features.
Weekly quests are one of the most efficient ways to earn XP in Fortnite, with hearty XP rewards offered upon completion. Furthermore, you can complete weekly quests retrospectively, meaning if you take a holiday or start a season late, you don’t need to worry about missing weekly quests. weekly quests only expire once the season ends.
Similar to daily quests, weekly quests have bonus goals that you’ll automatically earn XP from as you complete quests.
Complete Story Quests
With each new Fortnite season comes a new loose story, each with their own series of quests attached to them. These quests are released periodically throughout the season, and offer lucrative XP rewards to players who complete them.
The quests are split into several parts, with each part having its own XP reward, with a larger XP reward once each part of the quest has been completed. The story quests are a lot of fun, and are closely tied to the theme of the season and Battle Pass.
Team Up With Friends (Party Assist)
You can complete weekly quests much quicker by taking up to three friends into the fray, as you’re able to share progress towards completion via the Party Assist feature. This can quarter the time it takes to complete weekly challenges, depending on the skill levels of your friends, of course!
To activate Party Assist, simply invite your friends to a lobby, navigate to the Quests Menu, and select a challenge you want to share progress on. Then, simply click ‘Party Assist’ and you’re good to go.
It’s important to remember that you can only share progress towards one challenge at a time. It’s a limit Epic Games put in place to stop players getting XP in Fortnite too quickly!
Milestones are long-term goals that, when achieved, award a nice chunk of XP. You’ll probably find that you unlock milestones pretty regularly, without specifically aiming for them.
There’s milestones for practically everything you can do in the game, from damaging opponents to getting headshots, placing in the top 10 and restoring health. Each milestone has 20 stages, with each stage offering XP once completed.
Like daily quests and weekly quests before, you’ll also work towards bonus goals automatically as you complete stages, allowing for even more XP!
How long you stay alive in a match, as well as your overall performance, has a big impact on the amount of XP you’ll earn after a game. Achieving first place, otherwise known as ‘Victory Royale’, nets you a bonus chunk of XP. It’s definitely worth getting better at the game if you want to get XP fast in Fortnite.
Purchase Levels From The Store
We’re assuming that very few of our readers want to purchase Fortnite levels, but if you’re running out of time and are desperate for those last few rewards, then it’s a viable option.
You’ll need V-Bucks in order to purchase levels from the store. V-Bucks can be acquired via the Battle Pass, accumulated via your Fortnite Crew subscription, or purchased with real money.
You can buy 25 Fortnite levels for 1,850 V-Bucks, but only once per season. If you want to buy a further 25 levels after that, you’ll need to cough up 3,750 V-Bucks. There isn’t a way to buy Fortnite levels in lower or higher increments.
