To help you out on completing your Battle Pass journey, Fortnite is going to host a +100% match XP weekend this week. Also known as a double XP weekend, I guess you could say. According to the post on Reddit, the bonus XP weekend will roll out on June 29th at 4 AM EDT (or 08:00 GMT) and wrap up on July 2nd at 3 AM EDT (07:00 GMT). So, make sure that you hop into the game this weekend and grind out those Battle Star levels. And also make sure to complete as many weekly challenges as you can.

As for further details of Season 5 in Fortnite, there are still no concrete details. We don’t know what the theme of the season is going to be, nor how much the battle pass will cost (though, it’s safe to assume that the price will remain the same). Of course, we’re going to keep you updated as further details come out.
