There are hundreds of challenges in Fortnite, and a million ways to earn XP and get those Battle pass stars. The most reliable XP and battle star sources are your daily and weekly challenges, which you can view in your Fortnite menu.

Other types of quests can vary, from visiting certain locations to getting kills with specific weapons. It's clear that the best way to get as many battle stars in Fortnite as possible are the challenges.

Playing Well Gives XP - Obviously

Unsurprisingly, the game will reward you more the better you play. Ultimately, in XP earnt and battle stars gained, nothing can compare to quest completions, but Epic Games will always aim to reward playtime.

Every little action in Fortnite will give you small amounts of XP, but the best ways to accumulate large amounts to unlock those stars for the battle pass is to survive and kill.

Eliminations XP

Fortnite gives XP for every kill you get, snowballing with each elimination. One elimination will give you 50 XP, while 3 elims will reward players with 110 XP and 6 kills, a whopping 350! It sounds obvious, but better players will earn XP faster. Don't worry if you struggle amassing kills, there is still one time-tested tactic to try.

Survival XP

That's right, bush camping is indeed an efficient(ish) way to earn XP, and bring you one step closer to getting those items in the battle pass.

While winning the battle royale in Fortnite will give a tidy 300 XP by itself, simply finishing 2nd will give almost as much with 200 XP. Even just finishing 3rd to 10th place will give players 100 XP, so make sure to stay alive as long as possible to collect that XP!

Bring Your Squad to Get Battle Stars


Another way to get battle stars in Fortnite chapter 3 is through teamwork. Gaming with friends is always better, and when it comes to challenges you may find your XP flooding in as you happen to complete many of the joint challenges simply by playing.

Many of the daily and weekly challenges require teammates, and are usually things you will do anyway in game. Just playing with friends can land you mountains of XP, while you have fun you won't even notice the grind!

Save The World Gives Battle Stars?

For those willing to buy Fortnite's solo game, save the world can also provide your overall account with useful XP to unlock those all important battle stars.

That's right! Gaining XP in Fortnite save the world will also contribute to your battle royale level, although you will have to pay to get the Save The World game.

Unless you want to spend real money, XP is the way to get battle stars and unlock all those items on the battle pass you want. Luckily for you, there are plenty of ways to earn XP fast and get the best new skins and items in every new Fortnite season.
