Exotic weapons are some of the most powerful guns you can add to your loadout in Fortnite Season 6, but they’re not easy to find. Here’s how to get your hands on them all.

Exotic weapons like the Dragon’s Breath Sniper and the Burst Quad Launcher first appeared in Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 5 and were available to purchase from NPCs around The Island using the in-game currency known as Gold Bars.

While Season 6 seems to be focusing on the new weapon crafting feature, some players were unsure if Exotic weapons would stick around. Fortunately, they’re still here, although the details of where to find them have changed.


Below, you’ll find everything you need to know about Exotic weapons in Fortnite Season 6, including the NPCs that sell them and how many Gold Bars you’ll need to add each one to your inventory.

How to get Exotic weapons in Fortnite

Gold Bars are needed to buy Exotic weapons in Fortnite.

Exotic weapons can only be acquired by trading Gold Bars with specific NPCs that appear at various locations on The Island. Previously, these NPCs could appear in multiple locations, but fortunately, they’re all static so far in Season 6.

Not sure what Gold Bars are? We’ve got you covered in our handy guide to the Fortnite in-game currency. Essentially, you’ll need to complete Bounties or missions from NPCs to earn Bars, or search safes and shop tills to gather them.


Exotics aren’t as powerful as Mythic weapons, and whether they’re actually worth spending your Bars is up to you. But like all limited-time weapons and collectibles in Fortnite, we’re sure players will be doing their best to find them all.
