It's no secret that earning XP in Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 8 might have been a little too easy after a slow start. The balance changes that were made possibly did more harm in the long run but gave Epic a good idea of where things needed to be in Chapter 3.

Here's how you can bag yourself some fast XP in Fortnite Chapter 3 so you can complete the Battle Pass much quicker!

To get to additional XP over the festive period you can complete the daily Winterfest challenges! You have until Thursday, 6 January to complete these quests.

These challenges have steadily gone live over the last week and offer a nice XP boost. You can also head to the Cozy Lodge and sit in front of the fire for some passive XP but it won't come in great quantities.

Explore the Island!


The easiest way to earn super fast XP early in Fortnite Chapter 3 is to explore the island. As you dissipate the fog of war that will cover the island, you'll receive XP every time you discover a new POI or landmark.

With at least 2,000 XP per location, once you've uncovered the entire island, there's more than a few tiers worth of XP to be had.


Quest Away

It appears that NPC punchcards are not returning in Fortnite Chapter 3 (yet) so we're back to weekly quests instead. Each quest will be worth 25,000 XP and if Week 1 is anything to go by, they're not too difficult!

There are also daily quests that reset each day at 15:00 GMT / 10:00 EST / 07:00 PST.

Git Gud

We're only joking! Kinda... There's a lot of XP to be earned from having a good match with plenty of eliminations and hopefully, a Victory Royale! In Chapter 3, entering a match on the back of a win will also grant boosted XP rewards so getting streaky with your performances will pay off!

Beyond just eliminations and wins, you can also earn XP from foraging/scavenging. This means that being nice and efficient in your looting can also earn you a decent amount of XP when built up over a session of play.


Also, there's the possibility of earning a Victory Crown in each game mode which will boost the XP you earn for as long as you can hold onto it!

Get Creative

Better XP rewards are also now available in Creative & Save the World game modes.

This means that if the Battle Royale scene starts to get a little repetitive for you, a break in play won't see you dropping your progression.
