An Account Level in Fortnite

Account Levels track your progress across multiple seasons in Fortnite, but how do you earn them? And how can you check your Account Level? Here is everything you need to know.

If you want to know how many times you’ve leveled up since you started laying Fortnite – or you’re just looking to show off to your friends – then your Account Level is what you’ll want to have a look at.

You can also earn extra Account Levels in order to complete various quests and challenges or unlock different skins and cosmetics in the Battle Royale, so here’s all the answers you need.

What are Account Levels in Fortnite?

Your Account Level encompasses your progress across every Fortnite chapter and season that you’ve played so far. This is separate from your current Season Level which appears above you in the Lobby.

For example, let’s say you started playing Fortnite in Chapter 3: Season 4 and reached Level 80, then you reach Level 60 during Chapter 4: Season 1. Your current Account Level would then be Level 140.

Having a higher Account Level than other players doesn’t affect anything in the game – it’s simply a sign of how long you’ve been playing Fortnite.

How to earn Account Levels in Fortnite

Earning an Account Level is as easy as leveling up in the current season of Fortnite. You can do this by playing standard Battle Royale mode, completing quests, or purchasing levels from the in-game shop.

We’ve got a guide to help you earn XP and level up fast in Fortnite which should come in handy if you’re trying to complete a challenge that requires you to earn Account Levels in the game.

How to check your Account Level in Fortnite

You can see your current Account Level by scrolling across to the Career tab from the Fortnite Lobby. It should appear in the top right corner of the screen.
