How To Level Up Fast In Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 7

As Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 7 is out now, you're probably wondering how to get the latest skins as fast as possible, among other excellent rewards in the Season 7 Battle Pass.

However, leveling up can seem like a bit of a grind at times, especially if you want to get all the way to Tier 100, or want to shoot for the over-leveling rewards. Nevertheless, there are a bunch of ways you can farm experience and level up quickly.

The first thing you need to know about levelling up is that it requires XP or experience. You get experience based on your performance in matches and the completion of challenges.

However, there are a few things to focus on if you want to quickly farm experience and level up super fast.

Every day that you complete the set challenges there, you'll get some lovely boosts to your experience.

The challenges involve discovering named locations and getting kills, all pretty standard stuff. Simply play every day to make the most out of these.


Complete Daily And Weekly Challenges

Daily challenges also reset daily, but these also change every new day. These challenges offer more experience than the medals, but give you more difficult or niche tasks to complete.

For example, it may ask you to get two eliminations with a shotgun or get 10 kills full stop. These challenges are a bit more specific than the easy ones to get your medals but offer more experience.

Season 7 Battle Pass

Yes, you have to pay for the Battle Pass, but it offers multiple chances to earn experience quickly. As well as unique skins and emotes, the Battle Pass gives you rewards that actually affect your levelling.

Of course, the higher your Battle Pass level, the better the rewards too. So, the more you play, the more experience you get, the better the rewards.

From a bunch of experience to percentage increases based on performance, the Battle Pass is a worthy investment if you're set on reaching Tier 100 in Chapter 2 Season 7.

It's all about making the most experience from every game, and combining the medals, daily challenges, and Battle Pass rewards is a sure route to the top tier.

Get More Kills

The more Eliminations players perform in the game, the more EXP they generate.

Here are the EXP rates for solo kills:

  • 1 Kill - 50 EXP
  • 2 Kills - 20 EXP
  • 3 Kills - 40 EXP
  • 4 Kills - 60 EXP
  • 5 Kills - 80 EXP
  • 6 KIlls - 100 EXP

For every kill after their first, they will receive an additional 20 EXP.

Players also receive extra XP in Duos, Trios, or Squads for knocking down and shaking down opponents.

  • Knockdown - 25 EXP
  • Shakedown - 100 EXP

It takes time to shakedown an opponent, but it is well worth the 100 EXP if players have time to do so.

Place As High As Possible

The higher Fortnite players place in the game, the more EXP they will receive!

Here are the EXP rates for solo placements:

  • 1st - 300 EXP
  • 2nd - 200 EXP
  • 3rd-10th - 100 EXP
  • 11th-20th - 25 EXP

Players need to place at least 20th to receive additional EXP, anything above this will yield nothing.

Opening Containers

Often overlooked as a source of EXP, chests, ammo crates, and produce boxes all earn a player a bit when opened.

Here are the EXP values for opening various containers:

  • Produce Box - 65 EXP
  • Fishing Pole Barrel - 65 EXP
  • Ammo Box - 100 EXP
  • Chest - 130 EXP
  • Supply Drop - 135 EXP
  • Llama - 735 EXP

Never pass by any of these without searching through them for easy EXP.

It may not seem like a lot, but it all adds up during a match.

FORAGING: Easy EXP that players often walk right on by

Another source of EXP that players often overlook is foraging.

Foraging vegetables, mushrooms, and more will earn a player EXP, as will collecting Fireflies and fishing.

Here are the EXP values of each action:

  • Catch Fireflies - 25 EXP
  • Collect Foraged Item - 25 EXP
  • Catch Fish/Weapon in Fishing Hole - 80 EXP

Again, these values may seem low, but they add up.

It is easy to earn well over 800 EXP just from foraging cabbage in The Orchard alone.


The longer a player survives in-game, the more EXP they will also get.

Here are the EXP rates for time survived:

  • 2:02 minutes - 17 EXP (Pre first storm)
  • 5:06 minutes - 51 EXP (Pre first storm)
  • 6:04 minutes - 85 EXP (First storm)
  • 9:23 minutes - 136 EXP (Pre second storm)
  • 12:33 minutes - 187 EXP (Second storm)
  • 18:10 minutes -  238 EXP (Pre fourth storm)

Essentially Fortnite players want to last 18 minutes to get the most survival EXP.
