Fortnite: How To Earn Accolade XP (The Fast Way)

Epic has tweaked Fortnite’s XP system for the game’s latest season. Here’s a few quick ways for players to earn Accolade XP for their Battle Passes.

Fortnite’s Chapter 3 Season 3 has arrived, bringing a new Battle Pass filled with rewards, including new cosmetics, music tracks, and stacks of V-Bucks, all earned by earning XP and leveling up. In addition, Epic Games have recently sought to address player dissatisfaction with Fortnite’s increasingly grindy leveling system, announcing adjustments and doubling Accolade XP. While this should give players eager to race through Fortnite’s Chapter 3 Season 3 Battle Pass an easier time, both casual and hardcore Fortnite players alike ought to try everything they can to make the grind as easy as possible.


Fortnite offers a variety of daily, weekly, and milestone challenges that players can complete to earn XP, but unfortunately, XP earned from completing challenges hasn’t actually been doubled. Instead, Epic Games has only doubled Accolade XP, which is XP players earn during a regular game of Fortnite. Accolade XP is earned from different actions, including exploring new locations, opening chests, and even surviving long enough to reach new storm circles. Players will typically earn some Accolade XP from every match they play, as looting, shooting, and surviving are essentially what Fortnite is all about.

One of the best and most convenient ways to earn Accolade XP quickly is to spend time exploring the map. Epic has refreshed the island map with new Named Locations for Chapter 3, Season 3. In their first few matches, players should prioritize landing in different spots on the map to gain XP for discovering new areas and interacting with NPCs they come across. While NPCs also offer quests or trades, talking to them will give the player some XP. This is an excellent approach for players who haven’t played Fortnite in a while, and trying out the best landing spots in Fortnite can help returning players get a feel for the new map. The Fortnite map is also dotted with Landmarks, typically eye-catching or visually unique points of interest that give the player some XP for discovering them. One perfect spot to land is the new Reality Falls location, which has a relatively high concentration of Landmarks.

It’s highly recommended that players spend their first few matches in Season 3 just taking in the sights. Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3 also introduces several new features to help players get Accolade XP. For example, players can find Reality Saplings planted by other players, with fruit growing on them. This fruit can be picked, giving players equipment and a surprising amount of XP. Similarly, taming Fortnite’s new rideable animals will also reward the player with XP, although this requires a bit of finesse to pull off.

Ultimately, getting Accolade XP quickly depends on the player committing many small actions in every game they play. This can include exploring every corner of the map bit by bit, finding treasure chests, or picking fruit from Reality Saplings. In addition, players should keep in mind that going off the beaten path, even a short distance, can earn them XP from unexpected sources.
