Epic Games appear to be preparing a complete overhaul of The Yacht in Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 2, with Deadpool set to take over the point of interest. A first-look at the soon to be revamped spot has been leaked, too. 

Players who regularly drop from the Battle Bus will know by know that there were new locations added at the beginning of Season 2, but also new agencies as well – Shadow and Ghost.

In previous weeks, we have seen Shadow vs Ghost challenges – where agents compete against each other to complete objectives – and the rivalry has gone a step further, too, with destinations on the map being changed by the teams. While many might be expecting The Yacht to soon be claimed by one or the other, it seems Deadpool will have something to say about that.

Fortnite Battle Pass owners have been waiting for Deadpool’s skin to be released for weeks, completing challenges along the way.

Following the release of the v12.30 update, Fortnite leakers and data miners have been hard at work, searching for details to reveal ahead of schedule.

One of the biggest revelations was a shed load of new content based on the jokey Marvel superhero, including not just a fresh skin style, dual wield pistols and a themed loot drop balloon, but also a Deadpool Yacht – seen below, courtesy of FortTory.

While it’s a little pixelated, there’s more where that came from, as another leaker has revealed a video tour of the place.

For those wanting to get a closer look at the revamped luxury ship, leaker Makks got ahold of some footage and released it for all to see.

This video, featured below, shows almost every inch of the Deadpool Yacht. The status will soon feature a Deadpool mask pulled over its face, a hole will be on the right side of the Yacht, as well as portraits of the character scattered around as well.

Now, we might know – or have an idea – of how the fresh Yacht is going to look in Fortnite Season 2, but the real question is: when will it be added to the game? Eagle-eyed players will have noticed that there has been a cryptic clue in Deadpool’s calendar in-game, with a circle around one date – Friday, April 3.

This would suggest that a Deadpool themed event may kick off on that date, and could be the time Battle Pass owners finally get their hands on his skin. It wouldn’t be too surprising, either, after seeing so much themed content leaked ahead of time. If something kicks off, we’ll be the first to let you know.


How to open chests in Upstate New York for Fortnite Week 10 challenges

The tenth week of Fortnite’s Season 4 has arrived, and with a new set of weekly challenges comes one task that asks players to open chests in Upstate New York. While this may sound confusing, here’s everything you need to make this challenge simple. 

Fortnitemares has officially arrived, with Midas reappearing for the first time since his Device experiment backfired badly, flooding the entire island at the end of Season Two. Midas has regained control of The Agency, and his army of Shadow Henchmen are ready to cause chaos.

Of course, the overarching Season 4 storyline is all about superheroes, with Marvel characters invading the island. The evil Galactus is on his way, and heroes like Tony Stark, Dr. Doom, and Wolverine have made Fortnite their home as they prepare for battle.

With these characters, new POIs and locations have appeared, and to complete this specific challenge you’ll need to head to Upstate New York. While this may sound like a strange request, it actually exists as a landmark inside the game. If you aren’t sure where to find it though, we’ve got everything you need to complete this task.

Where to find Upstate New York in Fortnite Season 4

When Stark Industries arrived in Fortnite Season 4, you may have noticed that the POI is located inside what appears to be a massive bubble, which covers a large portion of the north-east corner of the island. It’s easy to spot, as the area is marked on the map for you, and the trees inside it are lovely shades of yellow and orange, compared to the normal green trees elsewhere.

Fans of Marvel Cinematic Universe will know that Stark calls New York his home, with the Stark Industries tower planted in the middle of New York City. Even the Avengers base in later films is located in Upstate New York. It shouldn’t come as a huge surprise then that his location in Fortnite was originally planted in the state of New York, which has now been transported to the island.

Thankfully, once you know where Upstate New York is, it’s easy to complete this Week 10 challenge, as all you need to do is open seven chests inside this landmark. They don’t even have to be opened in the same match, so just pick them up as you see them and you’ll finish this task eventually. If you’re still not sure where to go, we’ve included an image below.

It may take a couple of visits to Upstate New York to finish off this task, as there will be plenty of other people attempting it too. While Stark Industries has the most chests, it may be easier to head to some of the smaller buildings located in the zone, as they will be quieter and make you less likely to face enemies.

It’s well worth completing this task if you’re ranking up your Season 4 Battle Pass, as this offers a massive 25,000 XP reward, which will help you unlock new skins and cosmetic items.
