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.
