How to Level Up Fast in Fortnite to Reach 100
In this guide, we will be offering some tips on How to Level Up Fast in Fortnite. Each season, you’ll have a limited time to reach level 100, and the best rewards are always at the end.
There are also two types of level systems in Fortnite. You have the Battle Pass level and the season level. Both reach level 100 and reset at the start of each season. In this article, we’ll be focusing on the season level.
It’s best that you follow these tips so that you can make sure you reach level 100 before the season ends.
What do I need to do to level up fast in the new season?
- Start playing as early as possible
- Remember to complete the weekly and daily challenges
Before we offer some more specific tips, we would advise you to start playing as soon as a new season starts. If you start late in the season, you will have to put in much more playing time to catch up with everybody else.
If you do start late, you can still complete challenges from prior weeks, but you’ll have a lot more work on your hands. Because of this, we would always suggest that you prepare yourself for an upcoming season by saving up for the paid Battle Pass and playing on week 1.
That way, you’ll have much more time to reach level 100, even if you can only play a few days per week.
The weekly challenges are easily the most important thing to work on. If you can, make sure you can complete the weekly challenges each and every week. If you get stuck with some challenges, you can always find online tutorials for more help.
Daily challenges are an excellent way for directly earning XP. Each day, you can get 500 XP from your Daily Challenge. Each season lasts 70 days, so if you can play every day, that’s a massive 35,000 XP. If you complete four weekly challenges each week, that’s also 50,000 bonus XP.
How do I reach level 100 easily?
- Play with your friends
- Pay attention to Epic Games for 200% XP announcements
- Place higher, forget about kills
First things first, you should buy the Battle Pass if you can afford it. The Battle Pass will unlock unique rewards and it will also give you an additional XP boost to your standard XP for your season level.
What’s even greater is that you can boost your XP bonus further by playing with friends. If you buy the Battle Pass, you’ll get a 50% Battle Pass boost, and an extra 10% when you play with friends. Your XP boost will also increase as you level up the Battle Pass.
You can get up to 140% bonus just from the Battle Pass when playing alone. If each friend also has the Battle Pass, you’ll get an additional 40% for each friend. With a full squad of high-level Battle Pass owners, you can get a massive 260% bonus.
Besides that, you can get more XP on special occasions. Epic Games will sometimes run 200% XP weekends. Usually, these will only happen near the end of a season. Keep an eye out on Epic Games’ social media channels for more information.
When it comes to actually boosting the base XP you earn from playing the game itself, regardless of XP boosts and challenges, we’ve prepared some advice below.
Fortnite will reward you more XP per game for placing higher. You also get more XP for surviving for longer. Kills matter less when it comes to rewarded XP, so the best thing to do is play it safe for the first 5-10 minutes to get a higher ranking. You can get 17 XP per minute you survive in a game, 25 XP for a top 20 placement, 100 XP for a top 10 placement, and a massive 300 XP for a Victory Royale. (This is before any XP boosts).
Once more players have been killed, you can choose to be more aggressive and try to get kills. You get 50 XP for your first kill, so getting at least one kill is worth it. After that, additional kills will give you 20 XP, but you can only get a maximum of 150 XP from kills per game. (6 kills).
If you can withstand it and really need XP, you can simply hide right until the end and get much more XP for placing in the top ten. Obviously, this play style can be mind-numbingly boring for most players.
If you are short on time, the best thing you can do is try to get the first kill as quickly as possible and then survive as long as you can. This way, you get the most XP and ensure you get a nice 50 XP boost for a kill.
As soon as you die, quit to the menu and start up a new game. The quicker you jump into a new game, the quicker you’ll earn more XP.
Even if you have to go away from your console or computer for a short time, it makes more sense to jump into a game anyway, because, as mentioned before, you’ll get 17 XP per minute of survival. On the other hand, you won’t get any XP whilst sitting on the main menu.
How much XP do I need to get to level 100?
- You need 1,050,750 XP to reach level 100
- This translates to 105,075 XP per week
Now that we have offered some tips on how to get more XP and level up fast in Fortnite, here are some stats on how much XP you actually need.
To reach level 100, you will need a massive 1,050,750 XP. With a season lasting 70 days, that translates to 15,010 XP per day or 105,075 XP per week.
You can gain 5,000 XP from completing four of the weekly challenges and 3,500 from a week’s worth of daily challenges. This leaves 96,575 XP left to earn from just playing Fortnite regularly.
If you have enough boosts, play with your friends, have the Battle Pass, and try to survive until at least the last 20 teams, you can average at around 800-1000 XP per match. So, you’ll need to play roughly 120 matches per week. That translates to about 40 hours of play each week. Pretty crazy, but level 100 on Fortnite is something only the most dedicated players will reach each season.
