Fortnite players are no strangers to finding creative ways to level up their Battle Passes quickly. Fortnite's LEGO mode, a popular feature in Chapter 5 Season 2, has been a hotspot for XP exploits, allowing players to farm experience points (XP) for the battle pass without actively playing. However, a recent hotfix patch addressed this issue, removing the AFK XP exploit in LEGO Fortnite. Here’s everything you need to know about the removal of the XP exploit from LEGO Fortnite.

What was the LEGO Fortnite AFK XP Exploit?

For some time, players had been taking advantage of an AFK (Away From Keyboard) exploit in LEGO Fortnite, allowing them to accumulate XP without actively playing the game. By simply entering a LEGO Fortnite match and remaining idle, players could passively earn XP points, significantly speeding up their Battle Pass progression. This exploit became particularly popular during Chapter 5 Season 2, where LEGO Fortnite was the preferred mode for leveling up.

Epic Games Takes Action

Epic Games, the developer behind Fortnite, recently rolled out a hotfix aimed at addressing the AFK XP exploit in LEGO Fortnite. The patch introduced an AFK timer, effectively preventing players from earning XP while inactive in the game. This move was met with mixed reactions from the player community, with some expressing disappointment at the removal of the exploit and others acknowledging it as a necessary step to maintain fair gameplay.

Impact on Battle Pass Progression

With the AFK XP exploit now patched, players are left to reconsider their approach to leveling up their Battle Passes. While the exploit provided a quick and effortless way to earn XP, its removal means that players must now actively engage with the game to progress. Completing quests, participating in challenges, and exploring different game modes are now the primary methods for earning XP and unlocking rewards.

Other Ways to Farm Battle Pass XP

Despite the removal of the AFK XP exploit, there are still legitimate ways for players to efficiently earn XP in LEGO Fortnite and level up their Battle Passes. Engaging in activities such as building structures, completing races, and participating in challenges can all contribute to XP gain. Additionally, players can explore Fortnite Creative XP maps, which offer optimized experiences designed to maximize XP accumulation.
