Fortnite Mythic and Exotic weapon locations: Where to find them in Season 8

With the release of the Fortnite Season 8 Cubed update, Mythic and Exotic weapons have returned once again in the game. In case you have started playing Fortnite from Season 7, Mythic and Exotic weapons are some of the most powerful guns that can’t be looted from the ground. Instead, you can snag them by purchasing from NPCs or defeating them.

The Fortnite Season 8 commenced with a bang, adding a number of new NPCs and even a cluster of old citizens from the previous season. With that in mind, Epic Games has enabled the purchase of Mythic and Exotic weapons across the revamped Fortnite Island. However, coming across the buying spots of these weapons is a tedious task unless you know their exact location. Hence, this guide lists out all the Mythic and Exotic weapon locations in Fortnite Season 8.

As a rule, Exotic weapons can only be procured by exchanging Gold Bars with certain NPCs. Thus make sure you have enough resources in your inventory before initiating a trade. On the other hand, Mythic weapons can easily be acquired by hunting down specific NPCs on the Island.

We know there are very few Mythic and Exotic weapons available in the game at the moment compared to Fortnite’s previous Season 5 and Season 6.
