Fortnite OG has tons of exciting cosmetics in its OG Pass, but with a limited time to earn them all, a little extra XP is always appreciated. In this guide, we detail how to activate a “glitch” to earn AFK XP through a Fortnite Creative map.

How to Earn Easy AFK XP in Fortnite OG (All Platforms)

Fortnite OG players have discovered how to earn XP without lifting a finger through the Water Pit FFA map. By activating secret buttons on the map, which should only take a few minutes, you’ll begin to earn automatic (AFK) XP, which you can leave on in the background while at school or watching Netflix.

From the lobby, navigate to the magnifying glass icon and enter the code 1602-228-1769 to enter the Water Pit FFA Creative map. If you’re logged into Epic Games on your browser, you can click here instead to add it to your menu.

Enter a private match of Water Pit, turn around, and grab a Grappler from the right corner. Then, enter the middle rift on the opposite wall.

Turn around and grapple your way to the giant plant in the left corner. Walk up to it and activate the secret to get transported to a field with buildings.

Enter the Store (yellow building), up the stairs, and look for a clock on a dressing screen. Hold down the button displayed on the screen to earn a chunk of XP.

Enter the middle rift again and grapple to the inflatable palm tree opposite the plant. At the very top of the tree is another secret that teleports you into another field. Turn slightly left and walk behind the temple.

Grapple to the top and walk near the window’s ledge (shown in the screenshot) to find another secret XP button. Once you’ve done this, you’ll start to earn XP while standing AFK. Easy!

I earned around 29 XP per second, which equates to roughly 45 minutes per level after the initial chunk you earn from the secrets. It’s not a huge number, but it’s worth doing if you want to level up while busy with other things.
