Fortnite XP Guide - How to Earn XP and Increase Your Level

This is our guide to the new Fortnite XP system, and how you can earn XP to increase your overall level.

Fortnite Chapter 2 went live with a bang, and now there's a brand new player levelling system based around earning XP in-game. In this Fortnite XP guide, we'll be explaining how the new XP system works, so you can earn as much XP as quickly as possible, and increase your level to obtain new rewards through the Battle Pass.

Fortnite XP Explained

Just below, we've rounded up all the ways you can earn XP in Fortnite Battle Royale. You can use these methods of earning XP to accrue as many new experience points as possible.

  • Discover Named Location - 2,000 XP.
  • Discover Landmark - 2,000 XP.
  • Reach a new Storm Cycle - 50 XP.

How to Level Up With XP

XP is a brand new addition for Chapter 2 in Fortnite Battle Royale. Using the methods detailed in the list above, it's your goal to earn as much XP as possible, if you want to advance up the Battle Pass reward tiers.

At the end of the match, you'll also gain bonus XP depending on your actions in the match. Even if you don't get a Victory Royale, you can still earn bonus XP depending on how long you survived for, as well as how many players you eliminated.
