Experience points usually abbreviated as XP are a standard of measurement used in video games to know a player’s progress and level of experience in the game. It usually comes with its own perks and is earned based on the number of matches or rounds played, missions accomplished, and the like. This makes it important for players to get them. However, many Splatoon 3 players have been running into an issue where they are not getting XP after a match, and if you have been wondering how to fix it, you are on the right track.
Splatoon 3 is a third-person shooter video game developed and published by Nintendo, which explains why the game is exclusive to the Switch console. There are lots of cool mechanisms and features in the game to explore, but let’s stick to the topic at hand.
Splatoon 3 ‘Not Getting XP After Match’ Issue: How To Fix It
There is one major way to prevent this from occurring and two potential workarounds for resolving the issue if it persists. Let’s discuss them all.
Step 1) Avoid Starting The Game Before Map Change
From the experiences of several players who encountered the issue, it is recommended you wait for a minimum of 3 minutes before joining a match. This gives time for the map to change completely and for a new one to get scheduled. The new game notification should not interrupt the post-game statistics from being displayed. Rushing into the next match while cutting the post-game stats will merge elements of the recently ended game and the newly joined game together, resulting in several issues, including the XP loss. If you wait for a reasonable time before starting a new match and the issue persists, it’s time to try the next step.
Step 2) Restart the Game
The failure of the first step suggests there is probably another glitch in play. Restarting the game has been proven to overwrite lots of glitches and errors in most cases. If this does not work, then it’s time to try the last step.
Step 3) Re-install the Game
This last step can be said to be a desperate one. Delete the game from your Nintendo Switch console and download it again from Nintendo eShop or re-insert the Game Card. We will be sure to bring you more updates on this, especially if the developers of the game release a permanent fix for the issue.
