Struggling to grind your Fortnite Season 4 battle pass? A new unlimited XP exploit has been discovered by the “Glitch King” himself. However, be wary when using it, because Epic could be cracking down on players that abuse it.

Like every season, Fortnite players have to grind the Season 4 battle pass to get some great rewards.


However, this season has some extra special rewards on the line if you are a Marvel fan. Eight MCU characters, with potential foil variants, makes this season’s grind even more worthwhile.

There’s plenty of MCU skins on offer in the Fortnite Season 4 battle pass, making these XP exploits appetizing.

This has got players looking for potential ways to rack up experience fast. One way to do so is by completing the weekly challenges, and also just setting aside some time to grind out the games. Others, however, resort to exploits like this one.


While Epic has been hot on trying to patch out exploits as they pop up, this one has lingered around for a little while, revolving around a secret Season 4 challenge. YouTuber Glitch King uncovered it while completing the defusal challenge.

Defusing the bomb will only give you 500 XP. However, if you spray the barrel, it’ll trigger the reward up to five times in one game. After you get the 2,500 XP, you’ll have to back out of the game and rinse and repeat the grind.

Obviously, 2,500 XP is only a small dent, and the grind might not be as appetising as previous exploits which give players millions, or even billions of XP. However, it’s still a way to farm up your battle pass.


There’s also downsides to tanking your solo stats, so if you are a bit of a stat hunter you’ll want to stay away. If MMO grinding doesn’t appeal to you either, that’s a good reason to avoid this exploit.

The number one reason above all though might be facing the wrath of Epic. If you do it too much, Epic might catch on and punish you with an account ban. While it’s unlikely, it’s still a possibility.

However, if you’re still thinking the benefits outweigh the risk, you can easily abuse this exploit to get easy experience to level up your battle pass. It’s much quicker than just hoping you pop off every game.

The Fortnite Champion Series (FNCS) is back for Chapter 2 Season 4, with a return to the beloved Trios format that fans have been clamoring to see make a return. With the action kicking off on October 9, here’s everything you need to know to make sure you catch all of the action.

FNCS is making its return to trios in Season 4 for the first time since the inaugural Season X event. While it’s been a pretty poorly kept secret, there are some changes to the format from when it last appeared in August 2019.


With qualifiers now completed, we’re heading into the main stage of the FNCS Season 4 event, with a full month of competitive Fortnite on the way featuring some of the biggest names in the game competing for their cut of the prize money.

FNCS Season 4 format

FNCS Season 4 returns to the Trios format that has been used in the past, and is arguably the most popular competitive format in the tournament’s history, with past events filled with massive plays and huge battles that make for the ultimate Fortnite viewing experience.


As always, FNCS runs on a points-based scoring system, with your final placement in matches contributing to your overall score at the end of the weekend. Those who manage to win a game will receive 25 points as their reward, with the values decreasing incrementally down to 17th place, with anyone finishing below that scoring nothing. There are points for finding eliminations though, so players will be on the lookout for enemies to wipe out and add to their tally.

FNCS scoring system

  • Victory Royale: 25 Points
  • 2nd: 20 Points
  • 3rd: 16 Points
  • 4th: 14 Points
  • 5th: 13 Points
  • 6th: 12 Points
  • 7th: 11 Points
  • 8th: 10 Points
  • 9th: 9 Points
  • 10th: 8 Points
  • 11th: 7 Points
  • 12th: 6 Points
  • 13th: 5 Points
  • 14th 4 Points
  • 15th: 3 Points
  • 16th: 2 Points
  • 17th: 1 Point
  • Each Elimination: 1 Point

FNCS will be running in all the same regions it has been for the last few seasons: NA-West, NA-East, South American, EU, Middle East, Asia, and OCE, with the competition running on PC and consoles.


FNCS Season 4 will feature three weeks of qualifiers, with the top 15 teams from each week qualifying for the Grand Finals, who will be joined by the 87 teams with the highest cumulative points over the three qualifying rounds, with up to 132 teams competing in the Grand Finals on October 29.

  • FNCS Week 2: October 16 – October 18

The first day of each week will be an open qualifier. If you make the top 33 teams, you’ll be invited to play in the next two days for a chance to make it to the Finals.


FNCS isn’t the only competition coming to Fortnite Season 4. Weekly Cash Cups for Solos and Trios will be returning, while the Dreamhack Online Open (Solo) will also take place across NA and Europe.

With players set to earn up to $111,000 for winning the whole tournament, you can rest assured that there will be plenty of action when the action kicks off.
