Fortnite season 5 has both Mythic and Exotic weapons. Here’s the lowdown on the new Exotic weapons and where to find and get them.
Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 5 is underway with some fresh map changes, new features, a brand new battle pass, and some highly anticipated Fortnite skins coming to the game in the near future including Kratos and Master Chief.
We also have a brand new set of challenges, however, the challenge system is a little confusing this season. The challenge table as been removed and players can access challenges from the quest button found on the left side of the lobby screen.
Challenges/quests also have rarities this season and there’s limited time, special, and normal quests. Players can also complete tasks in game by going to any NPC around the map. You can complete these tasks or bounties to obtain gold bars which can then be spend on weapons, weapon upgrades, intel, or hiring the NPC as your protection.
One of the weapon types players can purchase from NPCs are exotic weapons. Here’s what you need to know.
What are Exoctic Fortnite Weapons?
Exotic weapons are Fortnite weapons with better stats than what you normally get or they’ll have an attachment like a thermal scope or bullets that explode. For example, the boom sniper rifle is an Exotic weapon which is essentially a heavy sniper rifle but with rounds that explode after impact.
