Level Up Like a Pro: Valorant Battle Pass XP Tips & Tricks

Ever feel like there just aren’t enough hours in the day to grind through your Valorant battle pass? Don’t worry, you’re not alone. Thankfully, there are ways to maximize your XP gains and unlock those sweet rewards quicker.

Level Up Like a Pro: Valorant Battle Pass XP Tips & Tricks

Dominate the Modes (and Win!)

The most fundamental way to earn XP is by playing the game itself. However, specific modes offer a significantly higher XP payout compared to others. Here’s a breakdown of the modes ranked by their XP efficiency:

  • Swiftplay: This fast-paced, streamlined mode is your go-to for maximizing XP gains per minute. Matches are shorter, keeping the action flowing and the XP rolling in.
  • Deathmatch: Ideal for quick bursts of XP grinding. While individual matches offer less XP than Swiftplay, the shorter duration allows you to squeeze in more matches within a limited timeframe. Perfect for those with busy schedules.
  • Unrated/Competitive: These core modes offer a solid balance between match length and XP rewards. Victories grant a significant XP bonus, making clutch plays and strategic teamwork especially rewarding.
  • Spike Rush/Replication/Escalation: These modes provide a decent amount of XP per match. However, due to their shorter format, the overall XP gain per minute might be lower compared to the top three choices.

Remember, winning grants bonus XP in any mode! Consider purchasing the premium battle pass for an additional XP boost.

Daily and Weekly Challenges

Daily and weekly challenges are your guaranteed sources of substantial XP rewards and shouldn’t be overlooked. Here’s a detailed breakdown of how they work:

Daily Challenges (The Consistent Boost)

Every day, you’ll have access to a set of challenges, each offering a specific amount of XP upon completion. These challenges typically reward around 1,000 XP per checkpoint, with four checkpoints to complete for a daily maximum of 4,000 XP.
The number of “charges” you earn per match to complete these checkpoints varies by mode:

  • Spike Rush, Escalation, Team Deathmatch: 2 charges per match
  • Unrated, Swiftplay, Competitive, Premier: 1 charge per round won

Weekly Challenges

Unlike daily challenges, weekly challenges come in sets of three and offer a larger XP reward upon completion. These challenges typically involve more complex tasks like getting kills with specific weapon types or using agent ultimates. The best part? Weekly challenges stack, so if you miss a week or two, you won’t lose out on the potential XP. Just remember, these challenges refresh every week with new objectives.

Premium Perks and the Xbox Game Pass Advantage

For those seeking an extra edge, the premium battle pass offers an XP boost that applies to all game modes. This can significantly increase your overall XP gains and help you reach higher tiers faster.

Additionally, Xbox Game Pass subscribers enjoy a sweet 20% XP boost on top of unlocking all new agents as they release. This double benefit makes Xbox Game Pass a compelling option for Valorant players who want to accelerate their progress.

While these tips can help you maximize XP gains, remember to have fun! Choose modes you enjoy and focus on improving your skills in Valorant. You’ll rack up XP naturally while having a blast in the process.
