With the release of Fortnite Chapter 3, Season 3, a lot of new content has made its way into Fortnite. Shortly after the start of the season, however, the community started complaining about the XP system. Epic Games have now increased the amount of XP needed to level up, rising it to 80,000 XP from 75,000 previously.

Logically, players are unhappy with these changes, as it makes it much harder to level up and thus unlock the Battle Pass. However, Epic Games have now listened to the criticism and have announced a number of changes to the XP numbers in Season 3. Let's take a look at the changes.

XP Changes in Fortnite Chapter 3, Season 3

Epic Games have announced major changes to the XP System via Twitter. Specifically, they wrote:

We've heard your concerns about XP. While there’s new quests in 21.10 and events to earn XP all summer, we also want to make things feel better now.

So we've doubled Accolade XP, as well as granted players a boost of Supercharged XP, to keep the good vibes going!

So don't worry, folks! We still will get plenty of opportunities to level up through all the quests and events that will come in Chapter 3, Season 3. There's still the question, though, of what Epic Games mean by Supercharged XP and Accolade XP. Let's explain...

What Is The Accolades Device in Fortnite?

The Accolades Device allows Creators to make their own achievements or quests. Players can then use these to earn XP for their Battle Pass when playing Creator Islands. The device has numerous options that can be customized to fit the design you want to produce, These include the selection of award names and types, the target value, and various triggers.

In order for the device to be activated, it must first go through calibration. Calibration is the process by which the data of a newly released or recently updated experience is analyzed to ensure that the Accolades device is awarding the correct amount of Battle Pass XP and is functioning correctly. A lot of the time, though, this doesn't seem to be working as it should.

What Is Supercharged XP in Fortnite?

With Supercharged XP, players will receive bonus XP for everything that they do to make up for the lack of XP they get from Daily Missions. This boost will, with this newly announced update, be available for every player for a limited time. This should fix the problem we currently have with XP progression.

Supercharged XP were originally introduced to help players who can't log in and complete their daily quests. If someone doesn't play for a certain amount of time and doesn't complete their daily missions, they will receive Supercharged XP the next time they log in to boost them back up! They are activating it again now, just to help us out!
