Where to find XP coins in Fortnite Season 5, Week 7

XP Coins have been absent in Fortnite for the past two seasons, but they could be making a return soon. Here’s everything we know about Fortnite XP Coins.

The main goal for many players at the start of a Fortnite Season is to reach Battle Pass tier 100 as quickly as possible. This requires tons of XP and can be a bit grindy. However, Epic Games has introduced several ways to gain XP over the seasons.

XP Coins are one method of leveling up that have been in and out of Fortnite. Some seasons they will be implemented from the beginning. Other seasons they won’t be present at all. And sometimes, they will only appear for half a season.

However, XP Coins aren’t currently in Fortnite. They haven’t been in Fortnite in a couple of Seasons. And with players recently expressing their disappointment in Fortnite Season 8’s XP, some fans may want these tokens to return.

When were XP Coins in Fortnite last?

We are currently in Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 8, and we haven’t seen or heard anything regarding XP Coins since Chapter 2, Season 5. Even then, XP Coins were absent for the first seven weeks of Season 5.

While dataminers did discover XP Coins in the files for Chapter 2, Season 6, they never made their appearance. When Season 7 started, dataminers didn’t find XP Coins in the files at all. However, that doesn’t mean they were gone for good.

When will they return?

While XP Coins aren’t currently a part of the game, that doesn’t mean they are gone for good. In fact, with the way Epic Games handles Fortnite’s assets, XP Coins could return at any point in time.

We could even see XP Coins return during Season 8. With the number of complaints regarding how this season’s XP works, Epic Games has stated it will be making changes. Those changes could be the addition of XP Coins.

That being said, we won’t know when or if they will return until there’s an official word from Epic. However, Epic Games will be announcing the changes to Season 8’s XP system on September 28, 2021.
