With Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3, Epic Games ruined the whole XP grind in the game. The XP grind in the game was already hard, but with the current changes to the XP gain system, the grind has gotten even worse, just as the community pointed out.
To reach level 200 in the Battle Pass, players need to earn 7,920,000 XP. While that may not sound like much, Epic Games has improved XP player count by completing weekly challenges.
Previously, players received a total of 80,000 XP by completing these challenges. However, in Chapter 3 Season 3, this number has been reduced to 75,000 XP.
Earn XP in Fortnite Creative Mode
Fortnite Creative is getting more popular in the game every season. Epic Games has tried to divert attention to the creative mode. For the uninitiated, Fortnite Creative is a mode in which members of the community design multiple maps.
There are all kinds of cards with game modes like Deathruns, Free-For-All and Team Deathmatch modes. That said, some of these cards also have XP enabled. This allows players to earn XP just by playing these cards.
Players can earn more XP by playing these cards compared to playing games in the Battle Royale segment. Interestingly enough, players can also earn some XP by spending some time in the creative mode.
While it may seem like Epic Games is trying to get the community to focus on Creative mode, the community believes this is an attempt to grab money by the developers.
Given how good the Battle Pass skins are, players will want to quickly get through the pass to get their hands on the Darth Vader Fortnite skin. However, improving XP gain may encourage players to purchase some of the levels in the Battle Pass.
While it’s hard to pinpoint the exact reason behind the XP nerf, the developers will likely increase XP gains in the coming days. In addition, the current season will last more than 90 days, giving players plenty of time to get the most out of the Battle Pass.
Alternatively, players who own the Save The World expansion can also play that mode to earn extra XP, but the community believes that the XP gain is earned there. Since it’s only been two days since the new season went live, these issues will arise.
The Fortnite community has been quite vocal about the issues in the game over the past few seasons, and they are doing so this season. Chances are, Epic Games will take all of these issues into account and fix them in upcoming in-game updates.
