There’s plenty to get excited about in Fortnite Season 5, but right now we’re here to tell you all you need to know about the new Exotic Weapons.

After the epic Galactus battle that took place during Season 4’s Nexus War finale, Season 5 is putting the focus back on Fortnite lore, as Agent Jones brings together the world’s greatest hunters – including The Mandalorian – for a chaotic battle that will shape the future of The Island.

Season 5 has brought with it a number of new additions, including a brand new map and bounties that tie into the Mandalorian crossover. It’s also introduced a new class of weapons called Exotic Weapons, which can be found at various places across the island.

At the time of writing, there are five Exotic Weapons to be found in the game, although this number will likely grow in the future – and you can be sure we’ll keep you updated when it does.

They’re not as strong as Mythic Weapons, and whether they’re actually worth your time getting is up to you. But like all limited-time weapons and collectibles in Fortnite, we’re sure fans will be doing their best to find them all.

How do you find Exotic Weapons in Fortnite?

The new Exotic Weapon class guns can only be acquired by trading Gold Bars with specific NPCs that appear at various locations on The Island. Some of these can be found at more than one location.

For the duration of the three-month-long series, players could also register their teams for bi-weekly tournaments, which were held on the National Guard’s organizer page.

Every player will began with 1000 points, and was awarded 10 points for a win, or deducted 10 points for a loss. The player with the most points each night walked away with 10,000 points, 2nd and 3rd get 5,000, and 4th through 7th 2,500 each.

For the bi-weekly tournaments, starting on October 18, players were ranked on their wins/losses throughout this period. The top players proceeded to the next stage of the tournament and were rewarded with Points, from a pool of 30,000.

Missions

To make things interesting though, Missions were in-play for all matches, as a way to earn extra points. For example, actions such as getting headshots, clutches, bomb defuses, nade kills and more were rewarded.

Players were set a mission challenge, for example, get 3 clutches, and succeeding will earn points. Mor information on how missions work can be found here.
