How to buy an exotic weapon from a character

The exotic tag for weapons was added to Fortnite in Chapter 2 Season 5. These weapons are the best of the best and provide some cold hard hints to opponents. In the hands of a skilled player, they can be used to wipe out the entire lobby. The most famous of these weapons is none other than The Dub.

He’s been a fan favorite ever since he was introduced and has come and gone in the game for a while now. In fact, the weapon is even in the loot for the current season. Given how popular exotic weapons are, it’s a shame not many players use them. This is because they cost gold bars and are lost if the player dies or ends the match.

For this reason, Epic Games offers players 15,000 experience points to purchase an exotic weapon for a character in Fortnite. While it will cost some gold bullion, the XP gain seems like a fair trade-off. Plus, they can even use it in combat if they feel like it or the need arises.


Full List of NPCs Selling Exotic Weapons in Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3

There are currently five exotic weapons Loopers can obtain in Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3. Each one has its own strengths and weaknesses. However, for the most part, they are all incredibly useful and valuable. With that being said, this is how players can find all of the exotic weapons on the island.

1) Boom Sniper Rifle

Boom Sniper Rifle can be obtained from The Visitor for 600 Gold Bars. It is located in the Launchpad POI, which is far to the east of the Sanctuary. What makes this sniper so amazing in Fortnite is the AOE damage it deals.

To elaborate, in general, snipers deal damage only when the shot connects with the target. Headshots deal more damage than body shots. However, this requires a lower level of precision to be used. Simply shooting next to the target will be enough to deal damage. This is because the projectile explodes on impact.


2) Dubbing

The Dub can be obtained from Jonsey the First, Ludwig, or Mullet Marauder for 600 gold bars. They are located in The Joneses. What makes this shotgun deadly in close combat in Fortnite is its knockback effect.

When shots hit the target, both the opponent and the target are thrown back or in the opposite direction of the shot. This can be used in various ways in combat. However, the most common uses involve pushing opponents into the storm, taking high ground, and retreating to safety.


3) Shooter Six Shooter

Marksman Six Shooter can be obtained from the Cuddle Team Leader for 400 Gold Bars. She is found in Rave Cave. Usually a revolver is not that powerful in Fortnite. Given how ineffective they are, using them makes no sense. However, this one is a bit different.

The weapon has the highest headshot multiplier in the game, which is 4x. A single headshot deals 96 damage. Theoretically, if a player manages to shoot an opponent three times in the head, it’s game over for them.


4) Shadow Tracker

Shadow Tracker can be obtained from Sunbird for 400 gold bars. She is found in The Temple, northeast of The Daily Bugle. Readers might be wondering, “Why waste so much gold on a gun in Fortnite?” Well, there are a few reasons.

For starters, Shadow Tracker has a built-in suppressor. Without any sound, it will be harder for opponents to tell where the shots are coming from. Additionally, the weapon also marks targets when fired. This allows the user to have a constant line of sight on the target.


5) Chug Cannon

Chug Cannon can be obtained from Kyle for 600 Gold Bars. It is located in Logjam Lumberyard. Alternatively, Loopers can also get the weapon by killing a Llama. However, since the challenge specifies that it must be purchased, this method may not work.

That said, the Chug Cannon is more of a support tool than a weapon in Fortnite. She can heal players (and opponents) and restore their shields. It has unlimited ammo but requires time to load to be used.
