Epic Games have brought back Supercharged XP to Fortnite Chapter 2 between November 30 – December 1. Here’s how to unlock your bonus that will get you soaring through the levels.

Epic Games introduced a ton of changes to their flagship battle royale as part of their relaunch. Fortnite Chapter 2 has received a completely new map and characters, alongside a completely overhauled leveling system. 

Since Fortnite’s first iteration received plenty of criticism for its toilsome ranking system, a new approach was adopted for Chapter 2. After scrapping battle stars, players were left worried over how ‘grindy’ it would be to reach Tier 100 — which is exactly where Supercharged XP comes into play!

What is Supercharged XP?

Epic Games launched Supercharged XP to provide players with the ability to power-level their way towards Tier 100 and beyond. Essentially, players will receive a temporary, four-tier boost, which (once activated) will buff your XP gains until the bonus runs out. 

Lasting for approximately 320,000 XP, players will be able to utilize the XP bonus as long as they have activated it on their account. For those interested, Reddit user, OutcastMunkee, has provided a more in-depth look at Supercharged XP on the ForNiteBR subreddit

Power-leveling was brought into play during October.

How do I get Supercharged XP?

In order to obtain your Supercharged XP, you will need to login to your Epic Games account between November 30 – December 1 on your respective platform. 

After you have logged in, the XP boost will be locked to your account until you have used the entire bonus effect. Meaning that as long as you redeem your bonus this weekend, you will be able to continue using it until you have gone through all four tiers worth of XP.

This is the second Supercharged XP bonus that players have been able to get their hands on, after the bonus was initially brought in between October 19 – 20. Which means that players have received an addition 640,000 XP free of charge!

If you combine the power-leveling bonus with weekly challenges, you’ll be able to soar through the ranks as Season 1 nears its close.

NickEh30’s latest Fortnite tournament was quite a spectacle, but it was tainted by an alleged stream sniper, who was reported and subsequently banned despite maintaining his innocence.

Nick ‘NickEh30’ Amyoony has been hosting a series of Fortnite tournaments in recent months. The latest one was the NickEh30 Cup. It gave players a chance to compete against some of the game’s biggest names in the scene for a chance to win $10,000.  

It was all positive for the most part. A lesser-known professional Fortnite player named  Crumble managed to impress and take home the prize. However, the tournament was marred with some unfortunate stream sniping drama.

NickEh30 Fortnite stream sniping ban

In the final match, several other players landed on NickEh30, including a Twitch streamer named ArchieFN. He eliminated NickEh30 and danced on his body for the better part of 30 seconds.

NickEh30 was less than impressed and looked disappointed and deflated on stream. It was a stark contrast to his usual upbeat and positive vibe. He was convinced ArchieFN was stream sniping and hopped into the replay mode to report him and a few others.

Fortunately, Epic Games responded almost instantly and banned ArchieFN for 24 hours as soon as he returned to the lobby. You can watch a full recap of the incident below and form your own opinion.

However, ArchieFN is maintaining his innocence. He claimed he wasn’t stream sniping at all. Instead, he said he wanted to “contest someone who wasn’t a tier-one pro” and decided to land on NickEh30 after seeing him land in the same spot during a previous game.

Still, he apologized for what he did and acknowledged that some might find it “scummy.” Sadly, that didn’t stop him from copping a bit of abuse, some of which was needless and extreme.

“Why am I waking up to 600 DMs telling me to kill myself?” he said. “I’m 20, and it doesn’t bother me at all, but the majority of the community is quite younger … you really need to think about what you’re saying to people on the internet.”

In the end, ArchieFN’s Fortnite ban won’t last more than a day. It isn’t too long to wait if he’s innocent, but it’s enough for a wake-up call if he’s guilty.

Either way, The NickEh30 was a success despite the stream sniping drama, and a rightful victor was still crowned.
