The process of leveling up is a bit different in chapter 2 of Fortnite as we must earn medals in order to gain progression and earn rewards along the way. You earn these medals if you complete the requirements that are needed this will also increase your XP. In this guide, we will explain the medal progression system of Fortnite Chapter 2 in detail.
Fortnite Chapter 2 Medal Progression
In place of daily missions, we have to complete objectives that get us medals which yield us XP and gets us rewards. Each card that you earn is worth 2000 XP and the fifth and tenth medal cards are worth 4000 XP each.
This works using the Punchcard approach which means that upon finishing a challenge your punchcard would have a medal added to it and you can even upgrade that medal from a bronze to a silver or gold during that match. The level of medal determines the amount of XP you get.
Your Punchcard resets every day and before it does you can add up to 10 medals to it. The entire reworking of Battle Pass progression is in order this season.
Your battle pass will advance as you finish challenges and get medals added to your punchcards. There is also speculation about weekly medals, but it is not confirmed as of and we will update it if we get any news about it.
You can get up to 10 medals added to your punchcard daily and for each medal you earn 2000 XP except for the 5th and 10th ones which get you double the XP. It’s pretty easy to get these medals. Here are some medals available in the game.
Battle Medal: Kill one person in-game.
Scavenger Medal: You have to search for 3 Chests, Llamas, or Supply Drops.
Survivor Medal: Get to the top 50 player list in any match.
First Match Medal: You will get this medal upon finishing your first match of the day.
You will still be gaining XP after your punchcard’s medal limit is reached which you can do by surviving, killing other players and finishing matches.
The punchcard will refresh daily at 2 pm BST (6 am PST, 9 am EST).
Here are a few ways to get XP easily:
- 20 XP: Knocked Opponent
- 25 XP: Headshot
- 35 XP: Used Fishing Spot
- 40 XP: Explosives Specialist (150 Explosive damage in one match)
