You may find it hard to level up consistently in Fortnite, but there is a solution in XP maps, which are custom-made by other players to deliver the most amount of experience possible whilst playing.

The game rewards you a lot for levelling up and getting battle pass progress, but it can be slow-going in the battle royale mode - so here's a rundown of the best maps in Creative Mode for XP.

These are the best XP maps

1v1 Build Fight Map (9496-3304-5859)

The XP Shop on this Creative Island is an absolute oasis of XP. First, press the AFK button on the wall. Next, feel free to annihilate Chickens, Pickaxe the Tomato Heads, or go Fishing! All these activities award XP.

Killing Chickens will net you Coins, while Fishing will get you Metal. You can use the buttons on the wall to turn both of these items into even more XP. Finally, every 30 minutes, you can press another button for a massive XP gift.

Begin the match and head down the right staircase into the main area. Next, take the stairs on the right up into a seating area with stacks of cash and gold bars littered everywhere. Interact with the leftmost black couch to claim 1,000 Coins.

After that, jump down and open the door on the ground floor. Just inside the secret room are two buttons that control the door. Spam these buttons, opening and closing the door, and you'll earn an absurd amount of XP.

After you spawn in, turn around and press the button on the wall that reads "AFK XP". You will now receive XP every second for as long as you remain in the match. Additionally, this XP Map includes a few secret buttons that'll enhance your XP gains even further.

When you're ready to go AFK, click the "Crash Pad" button immediately to the left of the "AFK XP" button. This will teleport you to a Crash Pad room where you can bounce around without fear of being removed for inactivity.

If you feel like being more active, this XP Map also features an AFK Shop where you can slay Wildlife and harvest objects for bonus XP.

The Parkour Deathrun 200+ (1132-3482-8021)

A classic Parkour Map, except this one is littered with XP Coins. The course is relatively easy too. If you have some time to spare, check this course out, and you won't be disappointed with the XP!

Variety Dropper (3547-1699-5825)

One of the more enjoyable ways to earn XP via Fortnite XP Maps, Variety Dropper is a fun little minigame in which players must descend through an obstacle course unobstructed and make it to safety without dying of fall damage.

There are three ways to earn XP in Variety Dropper. For starters, you will earn XP every few minutes you hang out on the map. Then, completing levels awards significant chunks of XP. And if you beat the whole thing, you'll get an even fatter lump of XP!

  • Enter the associated code
  • Click 'Play' to visit the XP Map

What are XP maps in Fortnite?

While Creative Mode has always been one of the best ways to earn XP, Fortnite XP Maps are specifically designed to offer insane XP rates. Typically, XP Maps instruct its users to partake in rudimentary tasks that award magnified experience.

Often, the Creators build these maps so that the XP keeps flowing non-stop, even if you're AFK! That means you can go for a walk or eat dinner and come back to an account with more XP than you could ever dream of.
