Fortnite has introduced Chapter 3, Season 3 Vibin’ and has faced backlash due to the new experience goals per battle pass level. For each level on the battle pass, players will need to get 80,000 experience, which is 5,000 more than it was for last season. Many users took to Twitter and other social media to voice frustration with Epic.

Showing its understanding and love for its community once again, Epic Games put out a hotfix that enabled double Accolade experience alongside a short duration of Supercharge in different modes. However, many players are curious about what Accolade XP is in Fortnite, and this guide will tell you all you need to know.

How to earn Accolade XP in Fortnite

Accolade experience is the reward that players get when they do normal things in Fortnite. It can be something as simple as opening a chest or being the first person to speak to a character in the game. Accolade experience is often earned passively by just doing normal actions inside the game.

As previously stated, Epic Games implemented this change after players expressed disappointment with the way experience was being given out. Not only are the battle pass levels harder to get, but the amount of experience that players are rewarded for completing milestone quests was reduced by 2,000 as well.

Epic likely did this because Chapter 3, Season 3 will be a little longer than the previous season. Even still, it will take casual players nearly all that time to get to level 200 and unlock all of the battle pass rewards. With the new addition and hopefully more changes to come in future updates, players should have a little bit easier of a time unlocking those rewards.

To earn experience, just continue playing in regular matches as well as Creative maps, which will provide a good variety of gameplay. That’s all you need to know about what accolade XP is in Fortnite and how to earn it naturally.
