After weeks of hints and clues, we finally have official confirmation that Deadpool is taking over Fortnite, with his special in-game event set to kick off on Friday, April 3.

Fortnite Chapter 2 kicked off back in February, and one of the most surprising appearances, when it launched, was Deadpool, Marvel’s foul-mouthed superhero who became a fan favorite amongst comic book fans and movie-goers alike.

The masked vigilante even has his own secret room in the game’s main screen, taking over a dirty bathroom to turn it into his hideout, but while he’s referenced in the game, rarely appeared in actual matches.

Finally, that’s all about to change, with a tweet on the official Deadpool account confirming that he’s set to take control of the game in a way only he could, turning The Yacht into his own Point-of-Interest covered in his logos.

The image uploaded to Twitter shows an image of The Yacht which Deadpool has clearly drawn over, with his logo and a sign that reads “TACOS” sitting on the roof, a kite flying from the bridge, and a pair of red underwear acting as a flag at the front of the ship.

The tweet doesn’t show exactly what the ship will look like by the team the anti-hero gets his hands on it, but we do know some of the surprises he plans to bring thanks to leaks which revealed some new items he was adding to the boat.

We also know that Deadpool will be taking over more than just The Yacht thanks to leaks, as he’ll also be involved in the dropping of Supply Crates, which are set to receive a major redesign with the balloon becoming an inflatable version of the hero holding a taco, and the crate itself receiving a red and black paint job.

The Battle Pus will also be getting a makeover, meaning there will be no escaping from Deadpool if you decide to jump into the game and hunt for Victory Royales.

For those who purchased the Fortnite Season 2 Battle Pass, they can also unlock a special Deadpool skin by completing the superheroes challenges, with the set released with the Week 7 Skye’s Adventure tasks making the skin available.

There’s currently no confirmed time for Deadpool to take over the ship, but knowing the character, it’s sure to be when we least expect it, and unlike anything we’ve ever seen in the game before.

We’re now in the seventh week of Fortnite’s Marvel-themed season meaning that there’s not long to go until the current battle pass items are locked away for good. Here’s everything you need to know about the latest challenges to help with your experience gains.

As with every other season, XP is vital in Fortnite. Whether you’re trying to unlock one of the 100 base tiers in the Season 4 Battle Pass, or you’re pushing beyond that for ultra-rare skins, there’s always something to pursue.

Challenges are often the best way to help boost your XP gains. Most can be knocked off in a matter of minutes for some of the biggest XP dumps possible in the battle royale. If you’ve already been ticking objectives off each week, you’ll feel right at home this time around.

From searching chests to tallying eliminations, the Week 7 challenges couldn’t be simpler. Here’s our complete overview of the eight unique tasks on offer.

Be on the lookout for enemies near Doom’s Domain this week.

You’ll be jumping around the map quite a bit this week as almost every challenge will take you to a new location. Finding eliminations at Craggy Cliffs should be a breeze as this is sure to be a hotspot over the next few days. Just be prepared for an immediate fight every time you drop here in Week 7.

The same can be said for Doom’s Domain as players will be looking to enter the vault for easy XP. Make sure you have a decent loadout before heading in as you’re sure to face some opposition here.

One rather unique challenge this week asks you to deal damage in a very specific way. First, you’ll need to find and equip Storm’s Whirlwind Blast ability. Once you’ve got an enemy in your sights, use this ability to knock them back. Once they’re pushed off course, you’ll then need to swap your weapons and deal 1,000 damage.

To tick off multiple challenges at once, you could always find Storm’s ability, then head to Craggy Cliffs, or even Coral Castle. The full list of objectives for Week 7 can be found below.

  • Search Chests at Catty Corner (7)

If you’re struggling with the unique tasks this week, here’s a few quick pointers. Storm’s ability can be used to knock enemies off high ground vantage points. Any fall damage will count towards your weekly objective.

Additionally, Tony Stark’s hidden Lake House can be found just North of the Stark Industries POI.
