The time has finally come to unlock the Deadpool skin in Fortnite, but first you’ll need to complete another couple of challenges, capping off a grueling seven weeks of tasks. Here’s how to find his pistols and become the ‘super-est of superheroes’.

The Deadpool skin was actually revealed all the way back at the start of Season 2 in the v12.00 update, but no one has actually been able to use it in-game.

That’s because you first need to complete seven weeks’ worth of challenges, with two new tasks set each week. Finally, we have the last two you’ll need to do.

First, if you haven’t completed any of the challenges in previous weeks, you can find our full Deadpool skin guide here, and rattle them off quickly.

Then, once you’re all caught up, it’s time to get into the final two challenges. First up, you’ll need to find Deadpool’s pistols, his iconic dual wield weapon.

Where to find Deadpool’s pistols

Like most of the items that need to be found for him, Deadpool’s pistols will be located in the HQ, but in different spots. The first you will find under the table in the main briefing room:

You’ll then find the second pistol inside Meowscles gym room, just down on the floor to his right.

Enter a Phone Booth or Portapotty to become the Super-est of Superheroes

Finally, you have another odd challenge to complete before getting your hands on the skin itself.

You will need to enter either a Phone Booth or Portapotty to do complete this task, which is incredibly straight forward. Although there are booths and portapotties dotted all over the map, the best place to do this is the agency, where you will see them both together.

You can find the Agency directly in the center of the map, east of Salty Springs and southwest of Frenzy Farm.

There’s a lot more Deadpool-themed content coming to Fortnite too, in addition to the main skin. A Yacht POI, skin style, battle bus and drops will all be added, according to leaks. You can see all the leaked items here.

Deadpool has confirmed his Yacht is on the way on April 3.

Once you’ve got the base skin, it looks like you’ll also be able to use a variant without his mask on. It’s not known yet if we’ll have to complete even more challenges to unlock this style though. Stay tuned to Dexerto for the latest on the Deadpool crossover in Fortnite.

Epic Games have announced more details about the upcoming FNCS tournament for Fortnite Season 5, including some of the Twitch drops players will be able to get their hands on by watching the streams and the schedule of events. 

If you’ve been wondering what incentives you might be getting to watch the upcoming FNCS Season 5 tournament then you’re questions have finally been answered.

With the tournament only a couple days away, Epic has gone ahead and revealed some cool new drops that players will be able to get their hands on during the event, including some sprays, a loading screen, and more, simply by tuning into the tournament on Twitch.

Here’s how you can make sure that you’ll get the rewards.

Epic Games
Epic has unveiled some loot that players will be able to get their hands on during the tournament.

Like most games nowadays, Epic Games is utilizing Twitch drops to give players an incentive to watch the FNCS Season 5 tournament. This means that, if you watch the tournament on various officially-supported streams that have drops enabled, you will be able to earn in-game items for Fortnite.

Some of them are a bit small like an FNCS spray and emoticon, but two of the more significant items is that of a special loading screen which features some of the characters featured in the Season 5 battle pass, as well as a cool, foam finger-style back bling.

All in all, it’s nothing too crazy, but it’s still a nice little reward for watching the tournament.

How to earn Twitch drops

Like any other Twitch drop, players will have to have their Twitch and Epic Games accounts linked before they can start earning their rewards. To do that, you’ll need to follow some simple steps, courtesy of the developers themselves.

  • Go to Epic Game’s official “Connected Accounts” page
  • Sign-in to your Epic Games account
  • Click on the “Connect” button under the Twitch tab
  • Click “Link your Account”
  • Sign-in to your Twitch account at the prompt
  • Select “Authorize”

After that, your Epic account and your Twitch account should be linked together and you’ll be able to earn items on drop-enabled streams. Once you get them, you should see them in a notification at the top of your Twitch page and they should appear in-game soon.

FNCS Season 5 streaming schedule

If you’re wondering the full streamable events, we have you covered. Epic says that they’ll be streaming the most “pivotal” stages of the competition, which only include the final rounds of the qualifiers, as well as the semi-finals and finals.

This means that, while qualifiers themselves will take place from Feb 4-7, Feb 11-14, and Feb 18-21 respectively, the only ones that will be streamed will be the final days on Feb 7, 11, and 21.

The full breakdown of times can be found below:

  • EU Region Broadcast
    • Start time: 1 PM EST
    • EU Live Coverage: 1:15 PM EST
    • Broadcast end: 4:30 PM EST
  • NA Region Broadcast
    • Start time: 5 PM EST
    • NAE Live Coverage: 5:15 PM EST
    • Break: 8:30 PM EST
    • NAW Live Coverage: 9:15 PM EST
    • Broadcast end: 12:20 AM EST

It’s important to remember that you watch either an official stream from Epic Games or a supported stream with drops enabled, otherwise you won’t get all the cool loot.

As more information comes out, like a change to the schedule or additions to the drops, we’ll keep this article updated.
