Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 5 released with one key missing feature but it appears that it may at least be returning!

This will be beneficial to levelling up your battle pass as the season progresses.
XP Coins are one of the best ways to level up, and they are back again for Season 5.

How Many Coins Are There And How Much XP Do They Give?
Here's what you will usually encounter on a weekly basis:
- 1 x Gold Coin
- 2 x Purple Coins
- 3 x Blue Coins
- 4 x Green Coins
Purple coins dish out 10,000 XP, Blue coins award 6,500 XP, Green coins grant 5,000 XP and Gold coins drop 15,000 XP.
In total, there is roughly 74,500 XP up for grabs JUST for playing the game.
The best thing to do is load into team rumble games to be able to collect a number of these quickly.
These coins do not disappear if you do not collect them in a week.
