Fortnite Medals Punch Card - How to Earn New Medals and Refresh the Punch Card

This is our full guide to the new Fortnite Medals system, including how to earn them, and times for the Punch Card refresh.

Medals were only a relatively recent addition to Fortnite Battle Royale through Chapter 2, but they're a really good way to earn XP every day. In this full Fortnite Medals guide, we'll be going over how to earn Medals, all the different types of achievements you can unlock for an XP payout, explaining the Fortnite Medal Punch Card, and more.

Fortnite Medals List

Every 24 hours in Fortnite Battle Royale, you'll have the opportunity to earn special Medals for bonus XP. Below, you can find all the different types of Medals featured in the game:

  • Scavenger Medal - Search 3 Chests, Supply Drops, or Llamas.
  • Battle Medal - 1 Elimination in the match.
  • Survivor Medal - 50 players remaining.
  • First Match Medal - Completed first match of the day.
  • Fishing Medal - Catch an item using a Fishing Pole.
  • Sniper Medal - Eliminate a player with a sniper from at least 100m away.

How to Earn Medals

So to meet the requirements for earning the Scavenger Medal, for example, you need to search either 3 chests, supply drops, or llamas in a single match. If you earn a Medal in a match, you'll be granted bonus XP on the completion of said match, for example the Scavenger Medal will grant you 2,000 bonus XP, whether you finish first in the match or not.

But there are ways to upgrade your Medals for a better XP payout at the end of the match. Once you've attained the first Battle Medal for example, by eliminating one player, you can upgrade this Medal for more XP by eliminating additional players.

Every time you earn a new Medal, you'll bag yourself 2,000 XP. The Punch Card for earning Medals (which we'll explain below), features 8 total slots for unlocking Medals. Although you'll earn 2,000 XP every time you unlock a new Medal, you'll earn a bonus 4,000 XP for the fourth and eighth Medals you earn.

When Does the Medal Punch Card Refresh?

Once you've maxed out all 8 Medals to the limit, you will have completed your Medal Punch Card for the day. Currently, the Medal Punch Card in Fortnite is slated to refresh every 24 hours at the following times:

  • 6 a.m. PT
  • 9 a.m. ET
  • 2 p.m. BST

When the Medal Punch Card refreshes at the times above, you'll be able to earn and then max out all 8 Medals. This basically resets a major way of earning XP in Fortnite, giving you the chance to earn some big bonus XP all over again.
