With Fortnite Chapter 5 Season 2 coming to its end, Epic Games has a nice surprise for players. The next season is scheduled for May 24, which is why everyone is doing their best to level up and finish the current Battle Pass. Fortunately, this task has become much easier thanks to a leveling boost that was recently activated.

Epic enabled Supercharged XP for all Fortnite players on Tuesday night, which provides a massive leveling boost. Thanks to it, you can rapidly level up and unlock all the Battle Pass rewards. In this article, we will explain what this boost exactly means and how you can take advantage of it.

How to quickly level up in Fortnite

Thanks to Supercharged XP, you can level up in Fortnite even 10 times faster than before! This type of XP boost affects every action you take in the game, from opening an ammo box to getting an elimination. For example, opening a chest grants 100 XP without this boost. However, you can get up to 1,200 XP for performing the same action while Supercharged XP is active.

To get the most out of this leveling boost in Fortnite, you simply need to play the game. The more actions you perform, the more XP you will get. To get more XP per hour, we recommend you play Team Rumble, as you can get a lot more eliminations and assists in it. If this mode isn’t for you, you can also enter Fortnite bot lobbies to level up much faster.

“All players have been granted Supercharged XP, granting a bonus when completing many actions that gain XP while playing Fortnite,” Epic announced on X, formerly Twitter. While the ending date of the XP boost hasn’t been specified, it’ll likely last until the end of the season.

It’s important to note that Supercharged XP does not affect quests. However, considering that Epic just released some extra quests, this shouldn’t be a problem.
