Exotic weapons are some of the most powerful guns you can add to your loadout in Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3, 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 Gold Bar currency.
With Chapter 3 focusing on all things new so far, like the map, 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 and Mythic weapons in Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3, including the NPCs that sell them and how many Gold Bars you’ll need to purchase them.
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 Chapter 3.
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.
These are all of the Exotic weapons currently available in Fortnite:
|Boom Sniper Rifle||The Visitor (at Sanctuary)||600 Bars|
|Shadow Tracker Pistol||Sunbird (at The Temple)||400 Bars|
|The Dub||Ludwig, Mullet Marauder, or Jonesy The First (at The Joneses)||600 Bars|
|Marksman Six Shooter||Cuddle Team Leader (on top of Rave Cave)||400 Bars|
|Chug Cannon||Kyle (at Logjam Lumberyard)||600 Bars|
Epic Games have taken things back to basics in Chapter 3 with only five Exotic weapons available to find hidden around the Island. Of course, it’s very likely that more will be added in the future.
You can see the locations of each Exotic weapon marked on the Fortnite map below:
As you can see from the map above, Exotic weapons can be purchased from NPCs based all around the map, so you should never be too far from one (unless you’re in the southwestern corner).
They all cost 400 Bars or 600 Bars in the current season, too, making it the ideal time for you to try them out without having to shell out huge amounts of gold.
There are currently four Mythic rarity weapons you can find in Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3. These are the Auto Shotgun, Striker Pump Shotgun, Ranger Assault Rifle, and Heavy Sniper Rifle.
Unlike previous Fortnite seasons, which have had totally unique Mythic weapons like Wolverine’s Claws or the Sideways Scythe, this season’s Mythics are just more powerful versions of the regular weapons.

Finding them also works differently from past seasons, where you would traditionally defeat a boss to get them. In this season, you need the help of a Reality Seed, which is a brand new item in Chapter 3 Season 3.
We’ve got a full Reality Seeds guide here, but essentially, you’ll need to plant a Reality Seed and then return to it every match so you can tend to it by picking weeds and fruit. Eventually, it will give you Mythic loot.
That’s everything you need to know about the Exotic and Mythic weapons in Chapter 3 Season 3. Make sure to check back soon as we will be updating this page when new information comes to light.
