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.
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.
