What Are Accolades & How to Acquire Them in Fortnite

Accolades in Fortnite are mini-challenges players can complete in-game to earn XP. These challenges include tasks such as fishing, gathering gold bars, and being the first in a game to achieve a challenge.

Accolades can be completed as often as possible, but they must be done in a single match, as they don’t carry over to the next game.

They are extremely simple tasks that players can complete in individual matches. Additionally, they can be completed more than once and will reward XP each time upon completion.

Completing accolades is a great way to level up quickly. Players can unlock the new battle pass skins by leveling up as soon as possible!
