How to Level Up Fast in Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 1

How to level up fast!

Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 1 is here with a slew of new content and mechanics for players to enjoy. As usual, there is a new Battle Pass to grind with Battle Star rewards all the way up to Level 200. Here is how to level up fast in Season 1 and snag all those great cosmetic and V-Buck rewards:

How to Level Up Fast in Season 1

To level up in Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 5, there are multiple methods available to you, though some of the best are completing quests while in bot lobbies or playing Team Rumble, as these are relatively easy to do so, without fear of elimination.


Quests are the main form of leveling in Fortnite, and Chapter 3, Season 1 divides these into Daily, Seasonal, Milestone, Character, and Event Quests. Each type of Quest will task players with a certain challenge and an XP reward. Quest categories also have goals for players to meet for additional XP bonuses, like completing 1-3 Daily Quests every day or completing X amount of Milestone Quests.

Supercharged XP

Supercharged XP doubles the XP earned by players during matches and is meant to help players who do not play the game as often keep up with players who do. If a player misses a day of playing Fortnite, they will be Supercharged the next time they log in.

Supercharged XP does not last forever, but it certainly helps ease the grind. Epic games even runs Power Levelling weekends sometimes where they Supercharge all players over the course of a few days.

Victory Crowns

New to Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 1, Victory Crowns are awarded to players who obtain a Victory Royale. Players can also steal Victory Crowns by eliminating a player who already has one. When wearing a crown, players get boosted XP for eliminations and surviving the storm.


There are times during a match when players earn achievements. This may be by dealing a certain amount of damage with a particular weapon type or being the first player to catch a fish. Each of these awards players with a fair bit of XP, which can add up over several matches.

The cool part? Each achievement is reset for each match, so they can be farmed repeatedly.

Opening Containers

Opening different container types in Fortnite grants players a small amount of XP, though this quickly adds up if players make sure to open every one they see during a match whether they need the contents are not. Do not skip by those ammo boxes and fishing barrels!

  • Produce Box - 65 EXP
  • Fishing Pole Barrel - 65 EXP
  • Ammo Box - 100 EXP
  • Chest - 130 EXP
  • Supply Drop - 135 EXP
  • Llama - 735 EXP
  • Cooler - 65 XP

Another great way that adds up to a lot of XP over time is by collecting Foraged Items while playing the game. Collecting apples and other fruit gets players 25 XP for every one they gather, and a single button press/click is all that takes.

Elimination Streaks

The more players a Fortnite fan eliminates, the more XP they get per elimination!

  • 1 Kill - 50 EXP
  • 2 Kills - 20 EXP
  • 3 Kills - 40 EXP
  • 4 Kills - 60 EXP
  • 5 Kills - 80 EXP
  • 6 KIlls - 100 EXP

Match Ranking

Fortnite players earn extra XP depending on how well they place in a match.

Here are the EXP rates for Solo placements:

  • 1st - 300 EXP
  • 2nd - 200 EXP
  • 3rd-10th - 100 EXP
  • 11th-20th - 25 EXP

Creative Mode

New in Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 1 is Creative Accolades. These are similar to Quests but award XP for meeting certain specially-marked Creative game modes requirements. There is a limit to how much XP players can earn this way per day, but it is a definite boost for Creative fans.

Players are still awarded XP just for playing in Creative for the amount of time they play, though there is a limit to this to prevent AFK players from earning too much XP.

Imposter Mode

First introduced in Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 7, Imposter Mode is the Among Us of Fortnite and has become a popular tool for XP farming. So much, in fact, that Epic Games lowered the amount of XP gained from Imposter matches. Still, they remain a fun and engaging way to earn a bit of extra XP.

Hey, my name is Mark, and I'm a video game enthusiast! My earliest memory was playing Worms on the Amiga against my Godmother, yes the Amiga, massive box type thing, needed eighty-five thousand floppy disks to play one game, maybe a slight exaggeration. Ah, those were the days! I love RPG’s, and The Legend of Zelda series. Dogs are pretty awesome.

  1. Need more challenges Or give more daily XP

  2. About how many hours of gameplay would it take to get IronMan? Are there any purchases that can be made that would speed this up (like XP boosts, etc. )

    1. I don’t know how long it would take, but you can purchase levels if you wanted.

  3. I dont know how to get into a bot lobby can you help

    1. well you probably arent reading this but if you are: it is very hard to do bot lobbies now bacause if you have an ios device it is not allowed so you can only do this on an android device

  4. Evident, in the team rumble section you put game and not gain

    1. Fixed, thanks!

  5. You only get 10K exp and 1K exp from quick challenges

    1. Fixed, thanks!

  6. I used to do bot lobby’s using my brothers switch(he Let me use it) and played on our PS4 But with the new season I can’t do bot lobby’s now, but these other tips are very helpful!

    1. Hmm, I’ll have to try on my Switch.

      1. I used my Switch and it worked fine. If I remember correctly from last season, you will need to start a new account for the one you group with and it should work.

        1. i play on switch and im level 152

  7. If you catch anything with a fishing rod in the loading screen it gives you “first catch” xp and counts as a fishing spot.

  8. Where can I see total XP earned per match like it use to say at the end of each match

    1. FN Tracker shows all stats and stuff for all the matches you play, even shows opponents names, kills, etc. Its pretty detailed

    2. It doesn’t show that anymore unfortunately.

  9. Hello,
    Thank you for the XP advice: very useful!
    Ch 2 Season 2, on the Battle Pass page, at the top left corner, it said how much XP needed to level. Would you know where I can find that information for this Season 3 please? I’ve scoured the pages and cannot find it. Maybe it is not there but just in case it is, I would love to know where! Thank you.

    1. Actually, if you complete all but one daily challenge, you will receive supercharged XP the next day. It checks if you completed all daily challenges yesterday , and if you haven’t, then you will receive supercharged XP the next day. So, a good strategy is to complete four of the daily challenges, and not complete one so you can receive supercharged XP the next day, and go in Team Rumble.

    2. I don’t believe that exists anymore, sorry!

      1. Um, I’ve been doing this since before the start of the new season… I think it still works, it may have changed in W4

        1. Aaaa wait I messed up
