Fortnite Lantern Trials

A new event has started in Fortnite allowing players to earn cosmetic rewards simply by playing the game. Here’s how players can earn all three Fortnite Lantern Trials rewards.

The Fortnite Lantern Trials is a new event meant to celebrate Ramadan. This period of time is observed by Muslims worldwide as a period of fasting. Regarded as one of the Five Pillars of Islam, Ramadan is observed annually for a duration of 29 to 30 days.

Epic Games is helping observe Ramadan by rewarding players with themed cosmetics. There aren’t any flashy challenges or quests that need to be completed. Unlocking all three cosmetics is as simple as playing Fortnite for a few hours.

Unlocking Fortnite Lantern Trials rewards

Players will first need to sign-up to start gaining progress to unlocking the rewards. Simply visit https://lanterntrials.fortnite.com/en/ and log in to your Epic Games account. This will automatically sign the player up and start tracking their progress.

Afterwards, players will just need to play Fortnite. Yes, it’s really that simple. Every 40 minutes that a player spends in a game of Fortnite will translate to one Lantern Trials badge earned. Players will earn rewards at tiers 1, 6, and 11 (see chart below).

Cosmetic NameBadge TierTime Played
Lantern SprayBadge 10 minutes
Enlightened Warrior EmoticonBadge 63 hours 20 minutes
Lantern Glow WrapBadge 116 hours 40 minutes

The time played is only counted in regular Solos, Duos, Trios, and Squads modes. Time isn’t counted when playing Arena, LTM, or Creative modes. This also means that players can’t sit in the lobby for 7 hours to earn the rewards.

Despite almost seven hours being a long time to play Fortnite, the Lantern Glow Wrap is worth it. The animated wrap is an exclusive reward meaning players won’t be able to get it any other way. Same goes for the spray and emoticon, but the wrap is truly the best cosmetic item up for grabs.

There isn’t a current end-date for Fortnite Lantern Trials, but player should hop in and earn these rewards before they’re gone forever. A great way to flew on opponents is by showing off the hard-earned Lanter Glow Wrap.

Fastest way to level up in Fortnite Season 8 and earn more XP

Reaching level 100 in Fortnite can be hard, but not anymore. Here’s the fastest way to level up and earn XP in Fortnite Season 8.

fortnite fastest way to level up earn xp

Fortnite Season 8 has switched up the way players earn XP, and it makes leveling up the traditional way pretty hard. However, there is a much faster way to level up in Fortnite that will get you to level 100 in no time.

At the start of each season, your player level in Fortnite is set back to 0. Players strive to climb back up to level 100 as quickly as possible. However, it can be quite a grind to earn all that XP.

Level 100 is even more enticing for Battle Pass owners. Reaching level 100 and beyond rewards BP owners with tons of cool cosmetics. And there is a pretty fast way to level up in Fortnite Season 8.

Players use to be able to complete weekly Epic/Legendary challenges to earn a ton of XP. Now, players have to complete Punch Cards challenges for minimal XP. But the Fortnite Impostor Mode is the fastest way to level up and earn a ton of XP.

Level up fast in Fortnite Impostor Mode

Fortnite’s Impostor mode is the easiest and fastest way to level up in Season 8. This is because the mode rewards players with a ton of XP in a short amount of time. Both the Impostors and the Agents can level up quickly.

You can play Impostor mode in public lobbies to earn XP, but it’s much easier to level up in Private lobbies. You will need at least four people in your party to play a private match. Here are the amounts of XP you will earn for performing actions:

Agents

  • Complete tasks – 4,500 XP
  • Play a match – 1,500 XP
  • Spend time playing match – 450 XP
  • Complete a match – 3,000 XP
  • Win a match – 3,000 XP

Impostor

  • Perform a Sabotage – 3,000 XP
  • Eliminate Agents – 4,000 XP
  • Play a match – 1,500 XP
  • Spend time playing match – 450 XP
  • Complete a match – 3,000 XP
  • Win a match – 3,000 XP

Some of the above tasks are multiplied by the number of times they are completed. For example, every task or player killed will reward players with the amount of XP listed.

This is why playing with a group of friends makes farming XP much easier. With a group of four, the Impostor can continuously spam the Peely Party sabotage while Agents complete tasks. It may seem cheesy, but it’s the fastest way to level up in Fortnite Season 8.

You should start seeing the XP roll in after the first match, and you’ll gain a level after every match or two. For more Fortnite, check out how to get the overpowered Mythic Sideways Weapons, and stay tuned for more news and guides.
