Playing the game

Just playing Fortnite Battle Royale in general will net you a lot of experience, especially if you play a lot of games. Your experience gained is determined by a lot of factors, such as kills and how long you lasted.

After playing a good amount of games, you’ll notice your xp and levels sky rocketing. Focus on getting kills and actually playing, instead of hiding. That way you’ll get a good amount of level progress for the amount of time you spend.

Daily Challenges

Each player is allowed to have 3 daily challenges at any one time. With players being able to get one new challenge a day. If you don’t like one of the challenges you have, you can choose to replace it in the bottom right corner.

Completing a daily challenges give Season XP. As you can see on the image above, the challenge that I have selected which is to ‘Place Top 25 in Solo’ gives 500 experience. It’s important that you at least attempt to complete your daily challenges, as they also offer Battle Stars which massively help you progress through your Battle Pass.

Weekly Challenges

As well as completing Daily Challenges, you also have Weekly Challenges which are part of the Battle Pass. You will earn a lot more experience by buying the battle pass, as XP is often a reward, and you gain access to more challenges.
