With Fortnite Chapter 5 Season 3 comes a new battle pass with loads of cool skins to unlock, and using the best Fortnite XP maps to level up fast will help you get there quicker!


For a taste of what's to come, check out the video above!

While accepting Wasteland Challenges, tracking down and defeating Megalo Don or collecting all the Medallions will go a long way, not all of us have the luxury of time - meaning we could miss out on skins and loot in the battle pass as a result.

We certainly won't grass you up for playing an AFK bounce map while you have your tea.

It's a small sin to commit in your quest towards unlocking Peabody - who we consider to be the best skin this season.

But on that note, we're not going to unlock the Fallout power armour by just sitting here, so let's get to it and gain some XP!

Home Alone – Prop Hunt

Map code: 0358-3267-8802

Fortnite fans sure love parodying pop culture, so it's no surprise that one user has taken inspiration from Home Alone for a map. If you search everything, there's a lot of XP to be found.

Gold vs Purple – Team Deathmatch

Map code: 5199-0518-6825

This one is a bit convoluted, and is best explained by Lootstation in their YouTube video.

It's well worth sticking with, however, as you can gain a truly staggering amount of XP for not a lot of effort.

Please note that Epic regularly likes to patch and update maps in Fortnite, especially ones from the community that have proven to be a great way to farm XP. We'll make sure to update the best Fortnite XP maps on a regular basis so that you can level up fast.
