Welcome to this post We are going to tell you everything there is to know about MicroWorks – How to level up and gain XP in this guide.

A summary of how the leveling system works and how to use it to acquire as much XP as possible in as little time as possible.


Play on Team Pointmatch, take it to slow to win as many microgames as possible, and gather as many players in one server as possible. Winning matches gives you the most XP.

How XP and leveling up works

MicroWorks will award you experience at the end of each match based on your performance during that battle. This XP is added to your global level. As you progress through the levels, you’ll be able to unlock skins and auras for your avatar. If you are playing alone, if you have mutators activated, or if the server is closed beforehand, no XP is earned.

While there are some more nuances and specific rules, XP is generally rewarded for the following feats (this list is in no specific order):

  • Winning microgames*.
  • Winning five microgames in a row.
  • Fragging players.
  • Getting the highest score in boss stages.
  • Winning matches**.

Naturally, winning individual microgames only give you small amounts of XP, while winning the entire match gives you the highest payout. There is no payout for placement. Victory XP is on an all-or-nothing basis.

New players start at level 0 and have no XP. The highest level achievable is 50, which takes 100,000 XP. The quantity of XP necessary for each level-up starts out minimal, but increases as you progress through the levels. This means that you’ll get through the lower stages faster than the upper levels. So, if you’re aiming for Max Level, level 25 isn’t the halfway mark – with 50,000 XP, you’ll be somewhere near level 34. Once you reach level 50, you will no longer receive XP.

* = How fast you win the microgame does not affect how much XP you get from it.

** = Victory XP scales based on player count. You’ll get notably (but not enourmously) more points if you win a match with 12 players than if you were to win one with only 4.

Strategies for farming XP

What you SHOULD do if you want lots of XP


  • Play team game modes. This is by far the biggest tip I can give you. Winning a match gives you the most XP out of all the possible feats. Playing in team game modes drastically improves your chances of winning, since the victory is attributed to everyone in the team, not the #1 player on the scoreboard.
  • Play Pointmatch or Scorematch – but especially Pointmatch. Since the speed at which you win microgames has no bearing on the XP you get from them, allowing yourself a little extra time to win them consistently gives you better chances at getting additional XP from combos. Pointmatch lets you do that without affecting your chances of winning the match.
  • Play in servers with high player counts. This will only make a difference if you win – but winning a match with many players gives you more XP than one with a small player count. Public servers are your best bet for that.


What you SHOULD NOT do if you want lots of XP


  • Play Survival. Matches in Survival don’t end until either everyone is dead or the boss stage is complete, so if you’re eliminated early, you’ll be spending most of your time spectating and missing out on XP.
  • Play Boss Rush. Because you only get XP for placing first in boss stages, it’s much harder to make good progress in Boss Rush, especially with high playercounts. You might be able to get some consistent boss wins if there are less players, but this is very hard to do and doesn’t give you that much more XP than normal.
  • Focus too much on getting extra frags where possible. Certain microgames let you frag other players even if it isn’t the primary goal – such as “Hit A Target Exactly X Times”. While you should go after other players to get some additional XP if the opportunity arises – you shouldn’t ever give it priority over winning the microgame itself. Winning the microgames themselves gives you more XP in the long run. And besides, they might kick you for being so cheeky. 🙂
