Exotic weapons are some of the most powerful guns you can add to your loadout in Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 8, 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 Season 5 and were available to purchase from NPCs around The Island using the in-game currency known as Gold Bars.

While Season 8 seems to be focusing on the new Sideways weapons, 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 8, 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 8.

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 try them all.

Epic Games have taken things back to basics in Season 8 with only four Exotic weapons currently available to find hidden around The Island. Of course, it’s very likely that more will be added in the future.

For now, these are all of the Exotic weapons available in Fortnite Season 8:

Exotic NPC Location Cost Image
Shadow Tracker Dusk In the mountains west of Lazy Lake 400 Bars Fortnite Shadow Tracker
Marksman Six Shooter Wrath Inside the remains of Stealthy Stronghold 400 Bars Fortnite Marksman Six Shooter
Dragon’s Breath Sniper Pitstop Northeast of Boney Burbs 500 Bars Dragon's Breath Sniper
Chug Cannon The Brat Fork Knife Food Truck (north of Lazy Lake) 600 Bars Fortnite Chug Cannon

While the Shadow Tracker, Dragon’s Breath Sniper, and Marksman Six Shooter can only be purchased from these specific NPCs, players were previously able to get the Chug Cannon by destroying the rare Loot Llamas in Season 7.


It’s unconfirmed whether this is still the case in Season 8, but even if it’s not, Loot Llamas are still worth tracking down when you spot them in Season 8 because they’ll always reward you with something rare.

That’s everything you need to know about Exotic weapons so far. We’ll update this guide if any new Exotics get added in future mid-season updates, so make sure you check back soon.
