XP: Get it!

Supercharged XP is a limited-time bonus for players that do not play the game within a specific time frame. This time frame is generally one day and is put in place to help fans who cannot get to the game every day still complete their Battle Passes and obtain their rewards.

Supercharged XP is not something players need to enable actively. If players spend enough time away from the game, they will automatically be Supercharged when they log back in. Epic also runs Powerlevelling Weekends on occasion where all players are Supercharged for an entire weekend.

Fortnite players can tell they are Supercharged by checking their XP bar, which will turn from purple to level when Supercharged. The words "XP Supercharged!" will also appear above the bar when in a match.

Once a player has Supercharged XP, they will earn double XP until the Supercharge period. While Supercharged, a small lightning bolt appears on the XP bar to indicate at which point XP buffs will stop. Specific actions, like the elimination of other players, will cause the Supercharged XP period to extend a bit, though these extensions stop at a certain point.

Victory Crowns

The Victory Crown is a new feature in Fortnite Chapter 3, Season 1. When a player earns a Victory Royale, they will have a Victory Crown in their next match. This is a droppable item, so players can ditch them if they like, or other players can snag them if they down a player with a Crown.

When a player has a Victory Crown, they are essentially Supercharged, earning extra XP throughout a match.
