One of the ways Epic Games keeps players busy in Fortnite is by giving them a new battle pass each season. To put it simply, a battle pass is a rewards system where players can unlock loads of surprises such as new dance emotes, pickaxes, skins, and many others. The catch is, each battle pass is tied to a season meaning it can last for up to 10 weeks at the very least.
It can be very easy to miss out on some great opportunities to level up your battle pass. There are two battle pass tiers. There’s a free basic battle pass that offers minimal rewards. If you spend 950 V-Bucks however, you can unlock a new tier of rewards which includes those amazing exclusive skins. 10 weeks is usually more than enough to go through all of those battle pass levels but if you’re struggling, here are some tips you might want to consider.
Pass The Time With Daily Challenges
If you find yourself playing Fornite every day, then it shouldn’t be a problem to finish your dailies regularly. If you look at the bottom of your quest list, you’ll find three green quests. These are quests that refresh every day. They involve simple tasks such as searching chests, harvesting materials, and even catching fish.
Each daily quest will give you 17,000 XP so that’s a total of 51,000 XP per day. To make matters even better, you receive a new quest each time you finish a daily quest. However, you can only get 1,700 XP from these quests. Remember that the daily reset happens at 7 am PT / 10 am ET / 3 pm BST each day, so make sure to log in regularly.
Always Do Your Missions
Back in the old days, you had to shell out extra V-Bucks to unlock missions that when completed, will give you a ton of XP for your battle pass. Epic Games has since done away with this practice and now, you get a set of weekly missions for free. Completing all of your weekly missions throughout the span of the battle pass is more than enough to get you to the highest level.
Each of the missions you get in Fortnite will net you 30,000 XP. As there are a total of 12 quests per week, you can potentially earn 420,000 XP just by completing all of them. The missions aren’t too complex and they involve tasks such as dealing a certain amount of damage with a specific weapon or even building a certain amount of a specific structure.
If you really want to maximize your XP, focus on completing the Legendary Quests first. These are harder quests but they net you more XP. The catch is that Legendary Quests are only around a week after they appear. By comparison, you can do regular weekly quests whenever you want to the moment they become available.
Complete Your Punchcards
Returning this season in Fortnite are punchcards. Basically, this is a feature that allows you to get a headstart on your battle pass by completing specific quests related to NPCs. You can score as much as 20,000 XP per NPC. There are a total of 6 punchcards to complete each season and completing them all rewards you with over 100,000 XP instantly.
Additionally, you can also do Character Punchcards. These are initiated by talking to specific NPCs that are located around the Fortnite map. The hard part is getting to them safely. Once you initiate the quest, however, you’ll see that the NPCs are going to give you simple tasks which will reward you with a ton of XP as well.
Play With Friends
There are a lot of benefits to playing with a squad in Fortnite. One of which is that they can help you finish your quests when you’re gunning for the highest rewards in the battle pass.
However, you need to keep in mind that not all quests in the battle pass can be finished with a party. You should look for ones that are tagged with Party Assists. These are quests that can be done with the help of others – which is a huge weight off of your shoulders.
Everyone aims at getting a Victory Royale in Fortnite for many reasons. If you want to max out your battle pass, you have more reason to go for the top spot each game. Scoring a Victory Royale will give you 300 XP but that’s just the start though. The more opponents you take out during the match, the higher your XP rewards will be.
That being said, if you are striving for a higher XP reward at the end of each game, it’s important that you play more aggressively. However, if you aren’t used to that style and just want the win – rotate around the circle and let the other players finish off each other first. Once the last few players begin duking it out, that’s when you begin to fight back.
Finishing a Fortnite battle pass is very rewarding especially if you consider that the skins from this rewards system are time-limited. A lot of players believe that 10 weeks is more than enough to complete a battle pass so don’t feel too much pressure as you will eventually catch up to it as long as you focus on your daily missions.
