Level fast in XDefiant

The key to leveling fast in XDefiant comes primarily through the game's Challenge system, which gives players boosts to their XP by completing various benchmarks during gameplay. This ranges from tasks like winning 10 matches of Hot Shot or Zone Control for 100 XP each, all the way to competing in three matches in a row for 50 XP. A full list of the game's Challenges and their rewards can be found here.

The key to completing these challenges is competing in matches, which implies being able to get into a match in the first place. Developers are urging players to be patient and "bear with [them]" as problems getting matched into a game have continued since launch. However, these will likely be ironed out quickly and players will be able to begin their XP grind before too long.

Doing this will also help you to advance your battlepass and unlock some of the game's amazing cosmetics, including weapon skins, spendable currency (XCoins), and character skins for many of the game's playable characters.
