How to Level Up Fast in Fortnite Season 5

It's that time again where you're looking at your new Battle Pass, and you're all the way back to level one again... So no doubt you want to max it out again to get those sweet, sweet cosmetics the pass offers. Well, if you're after the fastest methods to quickly level up, we've got you covered! You'll be hitting that level 100+ in no time in Season 5!

How to level up fast in Season 5

To level up in Fortnite 2 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.


The new quests in Season 5 are a truly great way of getting a fast amount of XP quickly. Some can be done in a matter of moments; others do take some effort, but they are truly worth it, such as the Legendary quest, which the first stage of it gives you a whipping 55k XP, and then every stage after nets you 22k XP. Though remember, some of the quests are time-limited, so it’s best to work on those first.

  • Quest Rarity (from highest to lowest)
    • Legendary
      • 55,000 XP for the first stage
      • 22,000 XP for the remaining four.
    • Epic
      • 20,000 XP
    • Uncommon
      • 10,000 XP

Bot Lobbies

Inside bot lobbies, if you can get a specific route nailed on the map, such as where the biggest amount of ammo boxes, chests, supply drops, anything that gives you experience. By following that route, you can easily get a high amount of XP in no time at all, then leave the game or complete quests.

The following video below is from KobesMind, who has found the best route in Zero Point for the quickest amount of XP in 5 or 6 minutes. If you can nail this path through the Weather Station and Camp Cod, then you’ll be leveling up in no time.

You can learn how to get lobbies with only bots in them with our Bot Lobby Guide! This is going to be more difficult if your secondary device is Apple, because you can't party up with it anymore.

Team Rumble

Once again, Team Rumble is still very high on this list, mainly due to you getting a bunch of eliminations and complete quests simultaneously, but you earn Survival XP as well. Because everyone lives until the end of the game, you’re always guaranteed this XP. However, some of the Epic quests cannot be done when in Team Rumble. The eliminations and damage ones are all easily done in this game mode because you can respawn, but some of the more complex ones like Planting Evidence, etc., cannot be done.

Foraged Items

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

You can either collect them passively as you play or go into Bot Lobbies and the like and only collect these. Of course, do these alongside your quests for greater XP gains.

Creative AFK Method

The final method we have today is what is known as the Creative AFK method. This will probably get patched very soon or at least nerfed. So even when writing this, we have no idea if it’ll work for you. We include it for the chance that it might.

All you need to do is start up your own creative lobby, select Create, and then just hang out in the hub for a set period of time. And every 15 mins in this lobby will earn you 6300 XP, with you doing nothing. You can do anything else, 

This only lasts 4 5 cycles, so every hour and 15 mins you need to leave the lobby and rejoin to start earning XP once again, or actually play the game for a different change of scenery.

Operation Snowdown is currently happening, so why not go and unlock Snowmando and Frost Squad? Or look at our Leaked Skins page!

  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
