In Fortnite, the loot pool changes every season. Various weapons are vaulted, others are unvaulted, and new weapons are added. Exotic weapons are generally more appealing to most players than the usual run-of-the-mill weapons.
When used correctly, these weapons pack a powerful punch and can wipe out an entire squad. There is, however, a catch. Unlike loot pool weapons found in chests or dropped on the ground, these can only be acquired by spending gold bars. The player must purchase them from NPCs.
As of now, players can purchase six Exotic weapons in Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 2. They are:
- Marksman Six Shooter
- Shadow Tracker
- Boom Sniper Rifle
- The Dub
- Storm Scout
- Night Hawk
Despite the fact that these weapons are powerful, buying them makes no sense without fully understanding their utility. All of them have different functions and are only useful in certain situations. It's time to take a look at Fortnite's Exotic weapons without further ado.
Marksman Six Shooter
Marksman Six Shooters are the perfect weapon for gunslingers and pay homage to the Wild West in Fortnite. This item costs 400 gold bars and can be bought from two separate NPCs - Quackling and Cuddle Team Leader. They can both be found at Camp Cuddle.
Six bullets can be held at maximum in the six-shooter, which functions as a pistol. However, there is a catch. This weapon shoots faster from the hip than a traditional pistol. Due to a staggering headshot multiplier of 4x, opponents have no chance of escaping close combat.
The Shadow Tracker is essentially a pistol with an attached silencer. For Fortnite players looking to roleplay as a secret agent and go into stealth mode, there's no better tool. Cuddlepool, which can be found at Camp Cuddle, sells it for 400 gold bars.
In addition to a fully functional noise suppressor, the weapon also has mark capabilities. The enemy will be highlighted for the entire squad if the player hits the target. A small marker will remain over the enemy's head for a while. This will facilitate tracking them and eliminating them.
Boom Sniper Rifle
Exotic Boom Sniper Rifles combine long-range firepower with explosives. As its name implies, this weapon inflicts massive damage. It can be purchased from Peely for 600 gold bars. Peely can be found in the Daily Bugle.
The most notable feature of this weapon is that damage can be dealt with without direct contact. The reason for this is that projectiles explode after a short delay, dealing 60 explosive damage. This damage can be stacked indefinitely. The projectile has to land near the opponent to have any effect.
Fortnite's Dub is a double-edged shotgun. With each shot, the user and the intended target are knocked back, making this a difficult weapon to control. Loopers can purchase it from Mullet Marauder for 600 gold bars. The Joneses POI contains the NPC.
Despite its strength, the weapon is best used in close-quarters combat only. Due to its limited range, it is very vulnerable to damage. At a distance of just five meters, the damage is reduced by 80%. Combatants will have to time their shots perfectly in order to take advantage of this.
Similar to other snipers in Fortnite, the Storm Scout appears and feels the same. Its ability to track storms, however, is what sets it apart from the rest. The weapon can be used to locate safe zones quickly. It is available for 500 gold bars through The Foundation. He is currently at the Sanctuary.
To stay ahead of the competition, this weapon is the only option. This can be achieved by rotating to a new safe zone before appearing on the map. Their ability to pick a good strategic position for fighting and dominating the area will be enhanced.
Night Hawk combines the stopping power of a revolver with cutting-edge technology. Like the Thermal Scoped Assault Rifle, this weapon functions in a similar manner. It can be found at The Origin, currently located in the Sanctuary. However, given the price tag of 400 gold bars, it may not be worthwhile.
Understanding the dynamics of the loot pool will help you understand why the Night Hawk isn't worth 400 gold bars in Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 2. SMGs dominate the battlefield, so a slow-firing revolver does not make sense. It is possible for players to be outgunned by opponents or miss out on eliminating
