Fortnite season 6 introduced wolves, "primal" weapons, and new locations, but regular old exotic weapons are still available to help give you the edge in battle. Like in previous seasons, exotic weapons can be found with various NPCs scattered around the map. Some exotic weapons offer simple damage boosts, while others can alter the game in unique ways.

With a remade map, you might be unfamiliar with where to find exotic weapons in Fortnite. We've done the searching for you so you can get to a victory royale even faster. Here's where to look:

There are seven exotic weapons in Fortnite season 6, and the spread clearly favors the southwest portion of the map. It's absolutely worth it to grab one if you have the gold bars to spare. 

How to get the Marksman Six Shooter

The Marksman Six Shooter is a punishing old west pistol. It deals regular damage on body shots, but deals critical damage on headshots. So it's entirely up to your tastes on whether you spend your gold bars on it. Any McCree mains out there?

Marksman Six Shooter location: In the sheriff's office northwest of Lazy Lake. Sold by Deadfire.

Cost: 500 gold bars.

How to get the Unstable Bow AKA where is Rebirth Raven?

The Unstable Bow is an excellent treat. It fires a random type of arrow every time you shoot, meaning you could get a Stink Arrow, a Grenade Arrow, a Shockwave Arrow, or a Fire Arrow.

Unstable Bow location: The Unstable Bow is sold by the Rebirth Raven NPC. She can be found in a house on a cliff northwest of Sweaty Sands.

Cost: 500 gold bars.

How to get the Grappling Bow AKA Where is Lara Croft?

The Grappling Bow works a lot like Batman's grappling gun, but you're using arrow ammo to shoot. You can deal 89 damage per shot from it, and when you connect with anything (even just environmental bits like trees or buildings), you'll be launched forward through the air. It's great for trying to flank enemies or closing the gap for a more punishing approach.

Grappling Bow location: Sold by Lara Croft in Stealthy Stronghold. She tends to be inside a stone temple building

Cost: 500 gold bars

How to get the Hop Rock Dualies

The Hop Rock Dualies are a pair of dual-wielded pistols that deal 43 damage per hit. Both pistols fire almost simultaneously, meaning you can land 170 damage per second. The Dualies require medium ammo and have a headshot multiplier of 2x.

The Dualies' special ability is giving the player a low gravity effect, negating fall damage and allowing you to moon jump around and more effectively maneuver around enemies.

Hop Rock Dualies location: Sold by Gutbomb at Logjam Works west of Weeping Woods

Cost: 500 gold bars

How to get the Chug Cannon

The Chug Cannon works like a Bandage Bazooka, giving 15 health per shot. It passively regenerates one shot every 20 seconds, with a maximum magazine size of five shots.. It also takes up two inventory slots.

Chug Cannon location: Sold by Slurp Jonesy in Slurpy Swamp

Cost: 600 gold bars

How to get the Shadow Tracker Pistol

The Shadow Tracker Pistol is a suppressed weapon that, when it hits an enemy, will mark their location for every team member. That marker lasts for the same amount of time as a shakedown highlight.

The Shadow Tracker deals 29 damage per hit, uses light ammo, and has a headshot multiplayer of 2x.

Shadow Tracker location: Sold by Power Chord in Dance Club Cabin

Cost: 400 gold bars

How to get the Dub Shotgun

The Dub is functionally the same as the Double Barrel Shotgun, but knocks players back like the Flintlock Pistol, making it effective at knocking players off of structures. It deals 120 damage per shot, uses regular shotgun shells, and has a headshot multiplier of 1.25x.

The Dub location: Sold by Burnout south of Steamy Stacks

Cost: 600 gold bars

It's possible that Epic will add more exotic weapons as season 6 continues. We'll update this post if they do, of course. In the meantime, read up on how to craft weapons in Fortnite, which can get you classic or "primal" weapons that add more precision or damage depending on their type. Bows also offers a great level of flexibility.
