Exotic weapons are some of the most powerful guns you can add to your loadout in Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 7, 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 7 seems to be focusing on the new IO tech 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 7, 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
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 7.

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.
Fortnite Season 7 Exotic weapon locations
Epic Games have taken things back to basics in Season 7 with only five 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 7:
|Storm Scout||Riot||Yellow Steel Bridge (east of Retail Row)||500 Bars|
|Shadow Tracker||Maven||Dinky Dish||400 Bars|
|Night Hawk||Guggimon||Lockie’s Lighthouse||400 Bars|
|Marksman Six Shooter||Abstrakt||Retail Row||400 Bars|
|Chug Cannon||Loot Llamas||Random||N/A|
In order to get the Storm Scout from Riot or the Night Hawk from Guggimon, you’ll first need to defeat the aggressive NPCs. Then, they’ll respawn looking like holograms, and you can talk to them to buy weapons.
As for the Chug Cannon, you won’t get this healing weapon like other Exotics. You’ll only be able to find it by destroying Loot Llamas, and that’s now much more difficult as they actually run around in Season 7.
More leaked Exotic weapons coming soon
As well as the Exotic weapons listed above, it’s already been leaked that a new original weapon called the Cowinator will be coming to Fortnite Season 7 soon. It will be sold by Rick & Morty’s Rick Sanchez.
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.
