For the XP in Plants vs. Zombies Adventures, see XP (PvZA).

The XP system is a ranking system in Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare 2 and Plants vs Zombies: Battle for Neighborville. Instead of the old ranking system, this ranking system is more based on the players’ skills. There is an XP bar for each character. XP is rewarded like the old ways of getting Coins in-game in the first Garden Warfare, such as getting vanquishes or healing a teammate, that will reward the player XP. When a character is leveled up, they may get an upgrade for that character depending on what level their character is at. When a character levels up, they glow for a couple of seconds. When a player reaches rank 100, there will be a new rank plate that reads “1”, and there will be a new rank plate every 100 ranks. Everybody, regardless if they are max rank in the first game, will start from rank 1.

There is an XP Multiplier as which its name suggests multiplies the amount of XP earned. The XP Multiplier can be seen in the Quest Board. Just note that if the player does not play the game for some time, the XP Multiplier will go down.

Level 10 is the max level for a character, so the player will not earn any more XP that will add to their bar. However, the player can still level up their character by promoting them. To promote them, just go to bobble heads in Backyard Battleground and there will be an arrow above the character that reached Level 10. Go to the character stats at the bobble heads to promote them, and once it is done, the player will earn 20,000 coins. Characters can be promoted from Specialist to Master, where one can no longer level up or promote their character. Other players can know the player promoted their character when the player vanquishes them and there will be a color and a promotion name around their gamertag.

In Battle for Neighborville, you can still promote characters, at the section labeled "Promotions" in Giddy Park. You still get upgrades for promoting, just ones that are specific to the character. There are also levels beyond the Master rank, being the Grand Master levels 1 to 5. You do not earn upgrades for doing these, as they are purely cosmetic.
