To celebrate Giannis’ long-awaited appearance, Fortnite has even launched the Giannis’ Dream Arena Creative map. The experience is a puzzle platformer where players will need to search the island’s clouds for gems which reward XP. However, there are still plenty of other ways to level up fast. Fortnite’s ongoing My Hero Academia crossover features a questline that tasks you with rescuing training dummies and sprinting with the Slap effect in return for thousands of XP and a few free cosmetics.
