Fortnite Season 6 introduced players to a crafting system that allowed them to upgrade and craft more powerful variants of either Primal or Mechanical weapons in-game.
Of course, a good alternative would be to just open chests, or search for floor loot to pick up weapons, after the loot balances were introduced to the game recently. However, players that want to get their hands on some of the more Exotic and Epic weapons in-game will have to rack up a lot of gold.
The Island in Fortnite Season 6, is chock-full of NPCs that sell overpowered weapons to players willing to spend gold to buy them. Despite them being hard to come by in-game, they offer great perks and bonuses to players.
The most recent Exotic weapon, the Grappler Bow, was added in Fortnite Season 6, allowing players to travel 50m in one go. When timed correctly, players can mitigate fall damage from any height or orientation.
There are a total of 12 weapons that players can obtain in-game from NPCs. For the sake of simplicity, this guide will just focus on Epic and Exotic weapons that can be bought with gold bars.
