A Glitch of 'Epic' Proportions

XP coins were first introduced to the game during Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 1. If you were the first to pick one up, you would receive a quick infusion of experience points for your account.

However, players noticed that XP coins seem to have been broken in the changeover to Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 2. Even if you pick one up, your XP bar doesn't grow as it should.


With which, furious players have been flooding Twitter and Reddit with screenshots and angry comments.

Epic Games’ Reply

According to a post on Reddit from a developer at Epic, the XP coin glitch is currently only a visual bug, and Epic is aware of it.

He said that players should still get all of the XP they're owed for picking up a coin, it just won't be reflected in a bar whilst playing that match.


But it seems some players are reporting that their XP bar doesn't change even after they return to the lobby, which is hard to say if those are just one-off situations. In any case, Epic will most likely have a fix for the XP coin problem soon.

If you still have concerns, you can track Epic's progress in fixing the bug on its public-facing development Trello board.
