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.

Epic Games
Deadpool’s presence will soon be felt across the entire battle royale map.

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!

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.
