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.
Below you’ll find the full list of new Exotic Weapons, where to find them, and who to trade with to get them:
