With the arrival of Fortnite Chapter 5 Season 1, a lot of exciting cosmetic items await in the Battle Pass. However, progressing through each level demands time and commitment, so here’s how to level up fast in Fortnite Chapter 5 Season 1: Underground.

Fortnite received a major content drop with the arrival of Chapter 5 Season 1, which brought a Battle Pass full of new cosmetic skins, including Family Guy’s Peter Griffin and Metal Gear’s Solid Snake, a brand-new map with a moving train, new weapons, and more.

If you’re looking forward to acquiring all the new cosmetic rewards, you’ll have to advance through the Battle Pass tiers by leveling up. Here are some helpful tips for leveling up fast in Fortnite Chapter 5 Season 1.

Complete Fortnite Weekly & Match Quests

Fortnite offers players both Match and Weekly Challenges to accomplish, which provide a substantial amount of Bonus XP.

In previous seasons, players could clear Daily Quests for a chance to get additional XP, but Chapter 5 replaced them with Match Quests. Players can choose between three different options at the start of each match and need to clear the selected objective before they are eliminated. Each Match Quest rewards players with 5,000 XP, and the first three you complete will reward you an additional 15,000 XP each.

This implies that you can accumulate around 60,000 XP daily by clearing three Match Quests a day.

The Weekly Quests entail other objectives that can usually be cleared in the span of several matches. Of the six Weekly Quests released every week, five reward players with 15,000 XP and one with 30,000 XP.

Complete Survivor Quests in Fortnite

Survivor Quests allow players to earn XP for completing certain challenges in-game. Aside from earning a ton of XP for each Survivor Quest you complete, completing all of them in each rarity will grant you Survivor Medals and a free Prized Llama Back Bling.

Play Fortnite Creative, LEGO Fortnite & more

Fortnite’s Creative Mode grants you XP for time spent in Playlists.

Engaging with Fortnite’s Creative Mode is consistently an effective strategy for swiftly gaining XP. Every 15 minutes, players are rewarded with a substantial 12,000 XP, regardless of their activity during that time.

This XP bonus can be claimed up to five times. While it is possible to earn XP by simply remaining idle, it’s advisable to keep an eye out for the XP marker adjacent to a Creative experience. This indicates that you will accumulate XP as you actively participate in the gameplay.

On the other hand, playing brand-new experiences developed by Epic Games like LEGO Fortnite, Fortnite Festival, and Rocket Racing, will also grant you tons of XP. What’s more, each of these games also have their own Quests to complete, so keep an eye on the Quests tab every time you play a different game mode.
