January 11, 2023: As Season 15 enters its final stages, we've tweaked our guide so you can complete the battle pass as fast as possible.

After you engage in fierce battles in Apex Legends, you can level up your Battle Pass and gain special rewards. With Season 15 in full swing, many are still working their way through the tiers to unlock all the available rewards.

Knowing how to level up the battle pass can be a bit of a gruelling experience, especially if you're new to the game. That's why we've put together a compilation of tips! Here's how to level up your Apex Legends battle pass fast.

How to level up Apex Legends battle pass fast

Stay alive

Earning XP is one of the easiest (and free) ways to level up your battle pass. One of the best ways to earn XP is to survive until the end of the game. The closer you are to the top spot, the higher XP you'll get.

Some players will choose the safe route by hiding out until the end of the match. Although this can be effective, it's not much fun and you likely won't have high-level loot, which will be a disadvantage when going up against other teams.

Play together, stay together, and slay together

Playing with a friend will give a 5% XP bonus to the points you earn through time survived. Add another pal to the mix and you'll all get a 10% XP bonus to time survived.

You get 3 XP per second you survive in a match. Therefore, if your friends work well together and you survive until the end of a match, you could be looking at a huge bonus.

XP breakdown

All XP earned in a game will go towards your Battle Pass. If you want to level the battle pass up quickly, tailoring your gameplay style towards completing tasks that earn a lot of XP is an easy way of doing so.

  • Win Match - 900 XP
  • Top 5 Finish - 300 XP
  • Time Survived - 3 XP per second alive
  • Play with a friend - +5% XP bonus to Time Survived

Complete challenges

Be sure to complete as many challenges as you can, some will reward you with an entire Battle Pass level! Others may reward you with stars, each star with go towards a Battle Pass level. Chances are you'll probably complete some of the challenges without even realising.

You can check the challenges for that day, week or special event by clicking the small menu on the right of your screen. It should display the daily challenges for that season or event if one is active.

Buy the battle pass bundle

The Battle Pass Bundle will start you at level 25 instead of 1. This means that you'll have 25 levels less to grind for and as a bonus, you get some cool cosmetics. Of course, this isn't an option for everyone.

You can still earn good XP through playing without the paid battle pass but it can take longer to level up.

Buy battle pass levels

As well as the above, you can actually buy Battle Pass levels, just a forewarning, this can quickly become expensive but if you can and want to do that then go ahead! Each level will set you back 150 Apex Coins, you can buy up to 99 levels and this will cost 14,850 Apex Coins.

They can set you back a significant amount of real-world money. Once you get to level 100, you have to earn the last 10 levels by playing and gaining XP.

Working to level up your battle pass in Apex Legends is rewarding as you unknowingly improve your skills while earning rewards.
