Exotic weapons in Ghost Recon Wildlands are special weapons that require certain requirements be met in order to gain access to them.
While most other weapons available in the game can be found scattered throughout the world, Exotic weapons generally demand that you complete an objective, such as kill, interrogate or extract a target.
These weapons tend to have better overall stats than their normal counterparts, so they’re well worth the effort to get your hands on them.
Here’s where to find each exotic, and the requirements you’ll need to meet in order to get them.
His AK-47 Exotic & Her AK-47 Exotic
HOW TO UNLOCK: DEFEAT YURI AND POLITO TO UNLOCK HIS AK-47
This mission takes place in Itacua. The objectives are simple: gain access to La Yuri and El Polito’s hunting lodge.
You’ll be able to kill both enemies instantly if you’re playing in co-op, because you can just bombard the final torture room with fire. If playing solo, you’ll need to take each out individually, with Yuri first. Simply wait for them to finish firing, then quickly break out of cover and attack.
EL BASTON – EXOTIC
Found In: DEFEAT MADRE COCA
This mission occurs in Coca’s Tabacal region. You’ll have four objectives:
- Rendezvous with the rebels
- Talk to the rebel in charge
- Follow the rebels to the meeting
- Kill Madre Coca
The best way to complete this mission is to deactivate the drone jammer, and then head to the mountains just above the small stronghold. Send down an explosive drone, and set it off as close to Madre Coca as possible.
LLAMATIVO – EXOTIC
Found In: INTERROGATE CARZITA
This takes place in the P.N. De Agua Verde region.
This mission will really put your stealth skills to the test. Scout the mansion house first: Carzita tends to go for a stroll on the balcony. When he comes out, tag him, then infiltrate the area by moving in via the back beach, with stairs built into the mountain. That way, you can flank him from both ends of the mansion without being seen.
EXPERIMENTO #42 – EXOTIC
Found In: EXTRACT EL CEREBRO
This takes place in the Caimanes region.
You’ll need to tail El Cerebro’s assistant without being spotted, and then make your way to El Cerebro in order to get him out. You could get involved in a fire fight, but chances are this will kill the target.
RESIDUOS – EXOTIC
Found In: DEFEAT EL POZOLERO
This occurs in the San Mateo region.
Head to the San Mateo Base, where El Pozolero is hiding. Interrogate and then extract him.
¡UY! – EXOTIC
Found In: EXTRACT EL CHIDO

You’ll find El Chido at the concert venue. Capture, interrogate and extract him to Malca Bravo.
LANZA SAGRADA – EXOTIC
Found In: FREE LA SANTERA
This mission occurs in Espiritu Santo.
This can be a rather tough mission, so be sure to take out any generators and snipers in the area.
You need to first free La Santera from the sicarios, and then extract them to Espiritu Santo Bravo.
THE WARHAWK – EXOTIC
Found In: DEFEAT BOSTON REED
Completed in the Koani region.
Look for a Santa Blanca helicopter, parked to the east of the runway. The laptop is on a bench in this area.
Take that laptop, enter the code you received earlier to signal Reed, and then once he arrives, kill him.
EL CUENTISTA – EXOTIC
Found In: EXTRACT EL WEY
This is completed in the Villa Verde region.
Once you reach the Tucan Unidad base, search for the intel, which will give you El Wey’s location. Once you capture them, interrogate and then extract to Villa Verde Bravo.

THE BFF – EXOTIC
Found In: DEFEAT EL EMISARIO
This is completed in the Ocoro region.
You need to simply locate and the search El Emisario. He is on a hilltop, at a red compound. There’s many a Unidad soldier here, so it can be tough. Make sure you’re packing heat.
