Deadpool is set to takeover Fortnite in a major way as leaked files have revealed a wide array of content coming in the next update. From a new Point of Interest to new skins and weapons, here’s a full rundown.

Deadpool has been linked to Fortnite since the beginning of Season 2 and after weeks of challenges and various teases, his presence is finally going to be felt on the map.

From brand new locations to upcoming weapons, it seems as though the ‘merc with a mouth’ has meddled with almost every aspect of the game.

New Deadpool-themed Point of Interest

The Yacht is supposedly set to transition into a brand new Deadpool-themed Point of Interest fit with plenty of cheeky references to the self-absorbed character.

According to prominent Fortnite content creator ‘HYPEX,’ the area will soon turn into a Deadpool-themed landmark.

From a flag that holds Deadpool’s trousers, to a statue defamed with a Deadpool mask, the anti-hero will soon leave his mark across the location.

New Deadpool cosmetics

Additionally, a number of Deadpool-centric cosmetics and limited-time changes have also slipped through the cracks.

The upcoming Deadpool skin will come with an “extra style option” that allows players to run around without a mask, revealing the more unsettling side of the character.

Custom Dual Pistols will also be introduced with an obvious red and black design and typical jokester paint on the side of the barrel.

Finally, the update will implement unique looks for both supply drops and the battlebus, complete with Deadpool’s trademark red wash.

While Fortnite v12.30 is right around the corner, avid players can expect to see all of these upcoming additions in a nearby update.

After teasing the character for weeks on end, his impact will soon be felt across the popular battle royale as Deadpool’s takeover will be in full swing with the next content drop — get ready for some mayhem!


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.
