Fortnite has entered its Season 5 introducing never seen before elements

Seasonal variations in the game will alter the way you farm for resources like weapons, experience, materials, and special loot items. In the ever-changing game, it becomes very important to understand how to make them work properly in your favor.

Weekly quest

The developers have changed the way players gain experience points in season 5 by introducing quests. Players will have weekly quests and epic quests that they can do before the week is over. Ensure you do them every week before they vanish, as they can give an upward of 25 to 50K experience.

Bounty hunting

Hunting for experience has been made significantly easier in season 5, as players can just buy a quest from one of the vendors. These things can range from taking out an enemy to supplying runs for certain materials. Here is a fun part about bounty hunting tasks, if you happen to get one of them and someone else kills the target for you, you would still be awarded the experience points.

So move around the map as much as you can, find each vendor, and simply purchase all the quests. Each vendor would sell them for a specific amount of gold that can also be farmed.

Farming gold

Now buying quest from vendors will require gold, which can be earned in several ways. You can find it in small safes or you can earn it by killing other players, and by simply surviving. Playing in a party of friends who can help you earn gold is a pretty excellent strategy, as it will boost your survivability.

Unlocking points of interests

Epic has riddled the map with new locations and points of interest that are waiting to be unlocked. Visiting these places will unlock the location and grant you a ton of experience, so ensure you do that. Visit every single location on the map and get that much needed free experience boost.

Season 4’s XP gaining methods mainly revolved around farming treasure chests, produce boxes, and ammo crates. This could be an attempt on Epic Games part to break out from that monotony.
