Exotic weapons are a new addition to Fortnite in Chapter 2 Season 5. Rather than being down to RNG, these can be obtained from certain characters that you can now find on the map. You can buy the new weapons from them for Gold, and each one will cost 1225 Gold Bars.
The weapons are not as good as Mythics, but they also don’t come with the high risk of dying to a boss to get them.
Boom’s Sniper Rifle
You can get Boom’s Sniper Rifle from Splode at the Unremarkable Shack to the northeast of Stealthy Stronghold. The Sniper Rifle doesn’t do tremendous damage on impact, at just 10 to the body and 20 to the head, but it will stick an exploding piece of dynamite to your target that will go off after a couple of seconds, doing 60 damage.
Shadow Tracker Pistol
The Shadow Track Pistol can be obtained from Reese who can be found in Dirty Docks. It is a completely silent pistol that will do 29 damage per shot to the body, and 59 damage to the head.
