How to level up fast in Fortnite and earn more XP
Knowing how to level up fast in Fortnite can help you unlock all of those Battle Pass skins before the season is over, so we’ve rounded up the best ways to earn more XP right here.
Chapter 4 Season 2 of Epic Games’ hit battle royale Fortnite has finally arrived, which means you’re probably busy working through the new Battle Pass to unlock all of those skins and cosmetics like Mizuki and Renzo The Destroyer.
Given the quality of rewards on offer this season – including the upcoming Attack on Titan skin – you’re going to want to level up as quickly as possible. But that can be a difficult thing to do, especially if you’ve exhausted the traditional methods.
Here are some of the best ways to level up fast in Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 2 and unlock not only the standard skins and cosmetics but also the rare bonus styles that will be added to the Battle Pass later in the season.
- Complete Weekly Quests
- Complete Daily Quests
- Make use of Party Assist
- Grind towards Fortnite Milestones
- Level up in Creative Mode
- Purchase extra levels
- Get a Victory Royale
1. Complete those Weekly Quests
New sets of challenges are added to the game every Tuesday and range from easy tasks like catching fish or dealing damage with a certain weapon, to harder ones like finding hidden items around the Island.
Each quest grants a big chunk of XP when completed, so working your way through all of them every week is without a doubt the best way to max out your Battle Pass fast.
You can find details of all current and upcoming Chapter 4 Season 2 weekly challenges right here.
2. Don’t ignore your Daily Quests
While those Weekly Quests will offer the greatest XP rewards, your Daily Quests are just as important. These refresh each day at 6 AM PT | 9 AM ET | 2 PM GMT and are usually quite easy (and quick) to complete.
Only the first three Daily Quests you tick off each day will give you a decent amount of XP. After this, the amount you’ll get reduces drastically. This means logging in for just 10 minutes each day to complete your Daily Quests is worthwhile.
3. Use Party Assist to complete challenges faster
One of the most useful features in Fortnite is the Party Assist function. If you play with friends in Duos, Trios, or best of all Squads, any progress you make toward completing qualifying quests will be shared between all players on the team.
This is especially handy when tackling challenges with multiple tiers. For example, if a quest asks you to land 25 headshots in total, that could take you a quarter of the time it normally would if your entire squad is aiming for headshots.
4. Grind toward Fortnite Milestones
Players will be glad to know that Milestones are still around in Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 2. Most of these Milestones are menial tasks like driving a certain distance or destroying items, so they’re pretty simple.
As a result, you’ll probably tick them off without even realizing it during regular everyday play, but it does help to know what they are. Fortunately, you can view all of your Milestones in the Quests menu.

Some of these Milestones require you to use different weapons or items, so it’s worth switching it up every now and then (even if that does mean trading your powerful shotgun for a pistol).
5. Level up in Creative Mode and Save The World
Believe it or not, you can gain easy XP in Fortnite by spending time in Creative Mode or playing Save The World. This is ideal if you’re bored of the regular Battle Royale action or you’ve completed all of your Weekly Quests and Daily Quests.
Even better, in Chapter 4, some experiences in Creative Mode have the Accolade Device enabled, meaning they offer the ability to earn XP by reaching certain levels or achievements, so look out for the XP logo next to a playlist option.
6. Purchase extra levels in the Fortnite Shop
No one wants to purchase levels in Fortnite – and you should be able to level up easily enough using the other methods on this list – but there’s no denying that this is the quickest way to level up in just a few seconds.
You’ll be able to select a bundle of levels each season that works out much cheaper than purchasing individual levels in the long run, so make sure you check them out before purchasing a different amount of V-Bucks.
7. Get a Fortnite Victory Royale!
While this may seem obvious, one of the easiest ways to earn XP in Fortnite is to simply do well in the traditional Battle Royale mode.
You’ll be awarded a small amount of XP for every elimination you dish out up until a certain number, with stacking bonuses on offer, and you’ll earn progressively more XP for every Storm cycle you survive.
You’ll also get a specific amount of XP depending on which position you finish at. Naturally, you’ll get the most XP for coming first and scoring a coveted Victory Royale, so practice, practice, practice, and that all-important XP will be yours.
We’ve actually put together a handy guide to getting better at Fortnite and increasing your chances of getting a Victory Royale, so check that out if you’re struggling.
