Each season of Fortnite brings its own pool of special weapons known as Exotics and Mythics, and Fortnite Chapter 3, Season 2 is no different. This season, several NPCs are offering these highly sought-after weapons, and they’ll always cost you something, whether it’s gold bars, HP, or just a ton of effort. Here’s how to get all Exotics and Mythics in Fortnite Season 2.
Fortnite Exotic and Mythic Weapons: What’s the Difference?
If you’re not sure what these weapons even mean in Fortnite’s biggest loot pool, let me explain. Exotic weapons are most often sold by NPCs and although in very limited supply, they can be purchased a small handful of times – normally four to five. This means that every player on a full squad could purchase these special weapons and carry them throughout a battle royale game. They tend to cost several hundred bars, but if you can afford them, your whole team can equip some of the best weapons in the game.
Exotic weapons also tend to have special stats, like a sniper rifle that fires explosive shells or a sawed-off shotgun that gives off an incredible recoil effect. Mythical weapons differ in several ways. For one thing, they’re not bought – they’re taken. The bosses on the island hold these special weapons and only part with them if you defeat them. Although the mythicals tend not to have any special characteristics, they are the ideal versions of their respective weapons.. For example, last season’s Mythic MK-7 Assault Rifle, held by the Foundation, was the absolute best MK-7 you could find on the island.
Unlike exotics, Mythics can also only be equipped by one person per turn. These are the rarest and best weapons in the game each season, and are therefore the most wanted weapons in the game. That said, next we’ll show you where you can find that season’s Mythics and Exotics.

Remember that some NPCs do not spawn every turn. In particular, NPCs at The Joneses and Camp Cuddle are likely to enter and exit per turn, so if an NPC isn’t there in your turn, their special weapon won’t be there either. You can track all NPC locations in Fortnite Chapter 3, Season 2 to keep track of who’s where, sell what, or challenge yourself to battle.
