Epic Games have introduced a number of new exotic weapons in today’s v23.40 update.
Back in Chapter 2 season 6, Epic Games released their first-ever batch of Exotic items. Exotic items are upgraded versions of current items available in the game.
The only difference is the exotic items will have unique attributes that’ll give them an edge over a legendary version of the same weapon or item.
We haven’t seen any new exotics in Fortnite Battle Royale for some time. However, that’s about to change with today’s v23.40 patch update.
Data miners have leaked five exotic items from today’s update. Here’s a look at each and its unique attribute.
