In every Fortnite chapter or season, players end up finding an XP glitch that will get them tons of XP with minimal effort. Many Youtubers discover and share such XP glitches that you can do at your own risk. Speaking of risks, can you get banned for doing XP glitches in Fortnite? Let’s find out.
Can I Get Banned for Doing XP Glitches in Fortnite?
What are the consequences of doing XP glitches? On Epic Games’ community rules, it is mentioned that players are advised to not cheat, grief or exploit bugs and glitches. Additionally, map creators are advised not to create islands that promote the use of cheats, exploits, glitched items and bugs. If someone reports you while using an XP glitch, then Epic will look at it on a case-by-case basis. Depending on the severity, repeat offense issue, and other factors, you may get a temporary to a permanent ban. On some occasions, you will only get a warning.
Like mentioned before, using an XP glitch comes at your own risk. As we saw in multiple videos by content creators, many have used glitches. And there has been no information of a ban wave (at the time of writing). Epic does patch out glitches pretty soon, so the time frame available is less. If you really want to try them, you have to be quick and only use them around people you trust/people who won’t report you.
What are XP Glitches?
Use of in-game glitches are not ‘hacks’, so you are not using any external sources to mess with the game code. These are features or items that players can manipulate to get benefits or rewards in the form of XP boost. Sometimes, they will also involve AFK farming of XP wherein you need to use a rubber band on the analog stick of your controller. If you make your character keep walking into a certain area, it will ‘fool’ the game into thinking that you are performing an action that should reward you with XP back-to-back.
How to Avoid Getting Banned in Fortnite?
These XP glitches go viral pretty fast which means many, many players end up using it. The trick is to ensure that you don’t get too much XP by using a glitch because the game will figure out that it’s unnatural to earn it this way. If you do it for a bit and it’s an amount that can also be obtained by playing normally, you will most likely be safe, but never 100% safe. It’s crucial to know when to stop because many players have built up their Fortnite account with lots of skins and cosmetics which could be lost if you are banned. And to be completely safe, avoid using glitches and just keep playing well to level up fast.
