Exotic weapons are the best you can get in Fortnite and as part of the Week 2 challenges, you'll need to find one and wield it against opponents. Exotics can be purchased from NPCs found in specific locations around the battle royale map for a certain amount of Gold Bars, which you can earn from eliminations, chests, ATMs and by completing bounties. There are six exotics in Fortnite right now, so here's where to find them.

Exotic weapons have specific attributes that make them better than the rest and used properly will surely help you towards a lofty Victory Royale. Finding the NPCs that dish them out is easy enough, but what's not easy is gathering Gold Bars. Each Exotic weapon costs 400 Gold Bars, so you'll want to complete bounties and raid cash registers and ATMs to find them.

There are different types of exotics, such as sniper rifles and pistols, so let's take a look at all the Fortnite exotics and where to find them.
