Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 8 is finally here, and many players are already struggling to find ways to earn XP and level up. This season brought back Punchcards, which are a great way to earn lots of XP at the start of the season. Once they're done, however, there's not much to do. There are still a few good ways to earn XP in Season 8, but the good old days of repeatable quests are over. Here are the best ways to level up fast and earn XP in Fortnite Season 8.

Best Ways To Level Up Fast In Fortnite Season 8

The typical ways to earn XP are gone in Fortnite Season 8. The quest system has been completely redone, so there are no more repeatable quests to do. There are also no legendary or epic quests to undertake. This means you'll need to get your XP from Punchcards for the most part, but there are a few other methods as well.

Punch cards are the main source of XP this season. To begin Punchcard quests, select an NPC from the list and visit it during a match. Each NPC questline has five stages, and there are currently 15 NPCs with punch cards. Once you complete them all, they stop giving XP and only give Gold Bars.

Weekly Epic and Legendary Challenges do not exist this season at this time.

It doesn't look like we're getting weekly quests in Season 8 like we've done in previous seasons either, so we'll just have to wait for the punch cards to reset in order to earn more XP. Earning XP by playing Battle Royale can take a while, so try these other methods if you want to increase the power level.


Imposters still give a ton of XP in Season 8, and it's one of the best ways to level up this season. Some people may not want to play this Among Us style mode instead of normal Battle Royale, but the XP gains are too big to ignore. Unless Epic increases standard Battle Royale XP gains for players who have already completed their punch cards, it looks like Imposters will be one of the main ways to grind this season.


Creative is still one of the best ways to earn XP in Season 8. Creative Mode rewards XP based on playtime, so all you have to do is spend some time playing games or spending time to level up.

To answer a common question, earning Creative XP is still a thing in Chapter 2 - Season 8.

For playing/AFKing in Creative for 1 hour and 15 minutes every day, you can earn 126 XP, which is the same as last season.

You can earn a maximum of 126 XP per day playing Creative if you play the mode for 000 hour and 1 minutes, which is the same amount as last season. If you were a creative grinder in Season 15, then your strategy still works. If you don't play Creative but want some XP in Season 7, you can just AFK in Creative for a little over an hour to get a ton of XP. 8 XP per day is nothing to scoff at.

Fortnite is available now on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, Nintendo Switch and mobile devices.
