Fortnite Spider-Man and The Foundation XP

Fortnite Chapter 3’s Season 1 Battle Pass offers 100 Tiers of exciting cosmetics, but getting through every level takes time and dedication. Luckily, we’ve got some top tips to help you level up fast in Fortnite Chapter 3.

Fortnite Chapter 3’s first Battle Pass features the highly-anticipated Spider-Man skins as well as some unique offerings such as Shanta and the upcoming The Foundation Dwayne Jonhson skin

You’ll need to hit at least level 100 if you want to unlock all of these skins and cosmetics, but it’ll take more than a few games to complete the Battle Pass. If you’re worried you won’t finish ahead of Season 2 or just want the skins as soon as possible, we have the fastest ways to level up in Fortnite Chapter 3. 

Complete Fortnite Weekly & Daily Quests

Fortnite offers players Weekly and Daily Challenges to complete that offer a ton of Bonus XP. 

The Weekly Quests will task you with completing objectives such as finding telescope parts and knocking down Timber Pines, and you’ll earn 25,000 XP for each.

The Daily Quests are much simpler, but not to be sniffed at. There will be three a day, and you’ll earn over 15,000 XP for each. This means that you can earn around 45,000 XP a day just for completing simple objectives such as opening chests in different locations. 

Check off Fortnite Milestones 

Milestones have returned in Fortnite Chapter 3, allowing players to earn XP for completing simple actions such as opening Chests and Ammo Boxes, catching fish, and feeding Klomberries to Klombos.

Most of these objectives will be completed naturally as you play, but check out the Quests Page to see all of your Milestones. 

You’ll earn 8,000 XP for each completed Milestone, and another 20,000 XP for each ten. If you’re looking to level up quickly, make sure you’re checking off these Milestones as you play. 

Play Fortnite Creative Mode

Jumping into Fortnite’s Creative Mode is always a great way to earn XP fast, as you’ll earn a huge chunk of XP every 15 minutes – no matter what you’re doing. 

Players will earn 12,000 XP for every 15 minutes they spend in Creative Playlists, and it can be claimed up to five times. While you could earn XP by sitting idle, it’s worth looking out for the XP marker beside a Creative experience, as this means you’ll also earn XP as you play. 

Score Victory Royale’s in Fortnite

One of the best ways to level up fast in Fortnite is simply winning matches. This won’t be easy for everyone, but consistently playing well will allow you to fly through the levels. 

You’ll earn XP for eliminating players and surviving each Storm Circle, and then if you can pull off a Victory Royale, you’ll get a bonus 300 XP.

Buy Fortnite Battle Pass Tiers after level 7

If you’re someone who likes to buy Fortnite’s Tier Skip Battle Pass, you should hold off until you’ve hit level 7 in the free Battle Pass. 

The amount of XP required to level up rises significantly after level 7, so purchasing the 25 Tier Skips after level 7 will give you the best value for money, allowing you to level up faster.


And those are the best ways to level up fast in Fortnite Chapter 3! You can also check out how to get the new Pizza Party item, and what it does.

How to complete Fortnite Sideways Showdown Week Quests

Here’s everything that you need to know in order to complete the brand-new Fortnite Sideways Showdown Week Quests.

Published

on

There are brand-new challenges for you to tackle in Fortnite Chapter 3, Season 2, and here’s how you can complete the new Fortnite Sideways Showdown Week Quests.

Fortnite’s 20.40 update patch went live on May 17, adding plenty of brand-new content for players to enjoy in Chapter 3, Season 2, including the arrival of Ali-A’s Icon Series as well as new Sideways weapons.

The update has brought new challenges for players to complete in the form of the Sideways Showdown Week Quests, and we’ll go over everything that you need to know to complete these.

Fortnite’s Sideways Showdown Week Quests require you to use Sideways weapons to complete tasks such as dealing damage to your opponents or upgrading the weapons at upgrade benches.

Here are the Fortnite Sideways Showdown Week Quests:

  • Damage opponents with Sideways Weapons. (500)
  • Damage opponents with Sideways Weapons. (1500)
  • Damage opponents with Sideways Weapons. (4500)
  • Damage opponents with Sideways Weapons. (10000)
  • Upgrade a Sideways weapon at an upgrade bench. (1)
  • Overheat any Sideways gun. (1)
  • Collect a Sideways Minigun and a Sideways Rifle in a single match. (2)
  • Defeat IO forces with Sideways Minigun. (5)
  • Damage opponents from 40 or more meters with the Sideways Rifle. (150)

Many of these challenges are fairly straightforward, and you can get them done in a single match. You’ll first need to collect Sideways weapons like the Sideways Rifle and Minigun from chests and ground loot on the map.

You can then use them to dish out damage to enemies, and firing them continuously for eight seconds will cause the weapons to become overheated, completing another Sideways Showdown Week Quest.

Upgrade benches can be found at different locations across the Fortnite map, and you can visit any one of them to upgrade your weapon. We’ll be sure to cover where you can find these in a separate guide.

That covers everything you need to know in order to quickly complete the Fortnite Sideways Showdown Week Quests. These will remain available until May 24 so be sure to complete them before then.

Fortnite Chapter 3, Season 2 is drawing to a close and one of the highlights of a new season is the live event. Here’s everything we know about whether Fortnite Chapter 3, Season 2 will end with a live event.

Fortnite has become known for its incredible crossovers and live events as much as its gameplay. These events feature unique playlists that have players join to watch the event together, and they’re usually used to usher in the next season or Chapter.

Players were disappointed when Chapter 3’s first season didn’t include one of these live events, so they’ll be keen to know whether Chapter 3, Season 2 will have a live event finale. Here’s everything we know about whether a live event will kick off Season 3.

Will Fortnite Chapter 3, Season 2 have a live event finale?

According to data miners following the v20.40 update, Fortnite Chapter 3, Season 2 will end with a live event.

Data miners have discovered strings that appear to prove there will be a season-ending live event finale. Leaker FNBRintel has discovered a ton of strings for the event, which include an in-game countdown and a way for streamers to use DMCA-free music during it.

Another leaker, FortTory, has also said that there will be a pre-event lobby where “we can expect some animations and sequences” before the main event. However, they won’t say anything more for now.

New skins for Paradigm and Jonesy have also been found in the patch notes, and Shiina believes they’ll have a part to play in the live event finale. They also leaked that there will be “multiple cosmetics available for the event.”

When is Fortnite Chapter 3, Season 2’s live event finale?

Fortnite Chapter 3, Season 2’s live event should go live on the last day of the season, which is set to be on June 3.

Once the event concludes, there’s set to be “an extended downtime,” with a “waiting screen similar to previous events.” There’s no way of knowing how long the downtime will last at the time of writing, though.
