Fortnite Battle Royale EXP Rates

Fortnite Battle Royale rewards players with EXP for each game they play. This EXP goes towards your player's Level, allowing you to unlock various cosmetics, such as player skin styles and battle stars for the free and paid-for Battle Pass.

Fortnite Battle Royale EXP Rates

When you get to the latter stages of content you want to unlock, you will find you need a hefty amount of experience points. You can see the table below for how much EXP is needed to hit level 80 (the point at which you unlock certain styles). For anyone aiming to unlock all the cosmetics the Battle Pass offers, earning the most optimal experience points in Fortnite Battle Royale is key.

Fortnite Battle Royale is available for free on Xbox and PS4. You can also play Fortnite on your laptop and computer.

First, let's look at some helpful tips that can boost your EXP:

  • EXP Boost - When you buy the Battle Pass, you will get an EXP Boost of up to 120%. This boost is gradually increased as you unlock tiers in your Battle Pass, with a max of 120%. This basically means it more than doubles the amount of experience you would normally get.
  • Friend EXP Boost - When you play game modes such as DUOs or Squads, you also can unlock a Friend EXP boost. Similar to the EXP Boost above, this Friend EXP Boost goes up to 40%. The cool news is however, if you play with a squad full of maxed out 40% Friend EXP boost, that's another 160% EXP you'll gain when playing. It goes without saying that Squads is the mode most players go for when trying to grind for EXP.

Fortnite Battle Royale SOLO EXP Rates

These are the current EXP rates for playing SOLO in Fortnite Battle Royale. Most of these rates apply to DUOs and Squads also. You get EXP for achieving certain goals: Kills, Placement and Survival Time. Here is a breakdown of the EXP you can earn.

Kills EXP

Kills EXP Bonus
1 0 50 EXP
2 20 EXP 0
3 40 EXP 0
4 60 EXP 0
5 80 EXP 0
6 100 EXP 0

As you can see, you get +50 EXP for your first kill, and then you get subsequent +20 EXP for every kill after that.

Placement EXP

Placement EXP
1st 300 EXP
2nd 200 EXP
3rd-10th 100 EXP
11-th-20th 25 EXP
21st+ 0 EXP

Placement is the position at which you finish the game. Winning a game of Fortnite yields you 300 EXP.

Survival Time EXP

Now this one is a little sketchy. Through tests of playing the gaming, the Survival Time EXP varies quite a bit. We haven't quite figured out the rate at which EXP is applied, but we do know there is a maximum you can earn. Check out our tables below for some data.

Survival Time EXP Storm
2:019 minutes 17 EXP Pre 1st Storm
5:06 minutes 51 EXP Pre 1st Storm
6:04 minutes 85 EXP 1st Storm
9:23 minutes 136 EXP Pre 2nd Storm
12:33 minutes 187 EXP 2nd Storm
18:10 minutes 238 EXP Pre 4th Storm
19:37 minutes 238 EXP -
24:03 minutes 238 EXP -

As you can see, the maximum EXP you can earn is 238 EXP, which seems to kick in around the 18 minutes survival time. I'll try and keep this table updated if I figure ou any other interesting data points.

What is the best way to level up in Fortnite Battle Royale?

The best way to level up in Fortnite is to have the Battle Pass at level 100 so that you have the 120% EXP boost and the 40% Friends EXP Boost. Then you'll need to play Squads with 4 others who also have maxed out their Battle Pass so you all have the 40% EXP Boost. This will give you the most optimal EXP, aside from if there is a special event when gives you double experience.

If you're playing Solo, you'll want to prioritise getting into the top 10 and getting a single kill. You will gain 50 EXP for your first kill, 100 EXP for getting into the top 10 and around 238 EXP for survival time. Once I hit the top 10, I then play a little more loose to try and get more kills and place higher. When you get a #1 Victory Royale, you'll earn around 1,500 EXP when you have 120% EXP boost.

You can use this EXP Calculator to see how much EXP you'll need to reach a certain level. With changes to the Season 5 Battle Pass, you can now earn skins that require EXP even after the season is over, which means you don't have to grind for hours and hours and can play at a more steady pace.
