The XP for playing Fortnite Impostors got reduced twofold
Getting XP at the start of Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 8 is as hard as it never was – weekly challenges got reworked, and rare challenges are just not there at all, so the only hope that the players had was the Impostors game mode. You could get 10000 XP for each 5 minutes you spend in this game mode, following some special conditions of course. However, it got changed today – a hotfix was released, which reduced the amount of XP that players could get in the Fortnite Impostors game mode by half.

Here are the exact numbers before and after the hotfix:
- Playtime: 700 -> 350
- Game start: 1000 -> 500
- Victory: 2000 -> 1000
- Game finish: 2000 -> 1000
- Eliminations as Impostor: 2000 -> 1000
- Sabotage as Impostor: 1000 -> 500
- Challenges completed as an Agent: 2000 -> 1000
As you can see, the amount of XP you can get for playing Impostors got reduced by half. You probably already understand why the developers did this. Most players faced the hard XP system in Battle Royale, which made them switch to the Impostors game mode, where they would spend hours just getting XP.

The developers also said that there will be some improvements made to the XP system in the near future, so let’s hope the XP progression will get at least a little easier.
