The Deadpool-themed takeover is now live in Fortnite, with a few other changes being dotted around the Battle Royale map. 

Throughout the history of Fortnite, Epic Games have dropped some pretty interesting crossovers with pop culture icons – be it skins like Stranger Things, a limited-time mode like Avengers: Endgame, or a full-blown new map spot like Batman. 

At the start of Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 2, Marvel’s Deadpool became the newest crossover with the battle royale – as fans have been tasked with different challenges throughout the weeks. Now, though, the anti-hero superhero is available as a skin thanks to his own event.

The Deadpool event had been teased by Marvel themselves.

Deadpool-themed The Yacht location

The Deadpool event hit the map on Friday, April 3, with the biggest change coming at The Yacht. Where Meowscles used to stand guard, a full Deadpool-themed layout has now taken over. 

That includes a tonne of Deadpool logos being splashed about the place, a red-painted scheme being implemented, as well as a few giant Deadpool statues all over too – including at the very top of the ship. There is even a spot for his Chimichangas at the back as well. 

Deadpool-themed Battle Bus, Item Shop, and supply drops

Just like when Christmas and Halloween roll around, the Battle Bus, supply drops, and Item Shop in Fortnite have also been given a makeover. 

Instead of their patented blue and white colors, both the bus and drops have been painted red and black, as well as having a giant Deadpool balloon soaring above them. The Item Shop, however, just has the character’s logo for a background.

However, for anyone wondering what has happened to Meowscles in the midst of Deadpool’s takeover, don’t worry, the character is still on the map.

According to Reddit user SuperJuniorLogan, instead of heading to The Yacht to fight the NPC for the Pew Pew rifle, you’ll have to head to the Box Factory in the south-east portion of the map to take the Musclebound cat on in a fight. 

However, it might take you a minute to recognize the boss character considering he’s now got a slightly different look going on.

The Deadpool event will last for around a week so there is a bit of time to enjoy the festivities and all the changes.

If there are any further tweaks to the Fortnite map because of Deadpool, you’ll be able to find them right here on Dexerto.

NickEh30’s latest Fortnite tournament was quite a spectacle, but it was tainted by an alleged stream sniper, who was reported and subsequently banned despite maintaining his innocence.

Nick ‘NickEh30’ Amyoony has been hosting a series of Fortnite tournaments in recent months. The latest one was the NickEh30 Cup. It gave players a chance to compete against some of the game’s biggest names in the scene for a chance to win $10,000.  

It was all positive for the most part. A lesser-known professional Fortnite player named  Crumble managed to impress and take home the prize. However, the tournament was marred with some unfortunate stream sniping drama.

NickEh30 Fortnite stream sniping ban

In the final match, several other players landed on NickEh30, including a Twitch streamer named ArchieFN. He eliminated NickEh30 and danced on his body for the better part of 30 seconds.

NickEh30 was less than impressed and looked disappointed and deflated on stream. It was a stark contrast to his usual upbeat and positive vibe. He was convinced ArchieFN was stream sniping and hopped into the replay mode to report him and a few others.

Fortunately, Epic Games responded almost instantly and banned ArchieFN for 24 hours as soon as he returned to the lobby. You can watch a full recap of the incident below and form your own opinion.

However, ArchieFN is maintaining his innocence. He claimed he wasn’t stream sniping at all. Instead, he said he wanted to “contest someone who wasn’t a tier-one pro” and decided to land on NickEh30 after seeing him land in the same spot during a previous game.

Still, he apologized for what he did and acknowledged that some might find it “scummy.” Sadly, that didn’t stop him from copping a bit of abuse, some of which was needless and extreme.

“Why am I waking up to 600 DMs telling me to kill myself?” he said. “I’m 20, and it doesn’t bother me at all, but the majority of the community is quite younger … you really need to think about what you’re saying to people on the internet.”

In the end, ArchieFN’s Fortnite ban won’t last more than a day. It isn’t too long to wait if he’s innocent, but it’s enough for a wake-up call if he’s guilty.

Either way, The NickEh30 was a success despite the stream sniping drama, and a rightful victor was still crowned.
