Popular YouTuber Alistair ‘Ali-A’ Aiken has shared where you can find Deadpool’s secret base in the Fortnite map, after it was teased in the official trailer.

Since the Chapter 2 Season 2 update, fans have taken on the newly added challenges that will allow players to earn an exclusive skin in yet another Fortnite and Marvel crossover.

The latest character to make an appearance in the Fortnite universe is Deadpool, who briefly appeared towards the end of the season’s battle pass trailer, confirming his arrival in Season 2.

Although a new Deadpool skin will be unlockable for battle pass holders (once a set of challenges are completed), the arrival of the latest character also resulted in some map changes.

Fortnite YouTuber Ali-A revealed that the superhero’s arrival also included his secret base, which was hinted at in the battle pass trailer, that players could find in-game.

He reveals that to find the secret base players will need to travel to the new cabin, that was introduced in the season 2 update, which is on the outskirts of Weeping Woods.

Topic starts at 7:45 for mobile users.

Once inside the cabin, players will need to look for a bookshelf on the wall similar to the one in the battle pass trailer and interact with it to find the hidden entrance.

After walking behind the bookshelf, players will find a hole in the floor that will lead players to the secret base once they drop down inside.

Although it is unclear what the purpose of the Marvel hero’s underground lair is as of yet, fans can still check it out and get some pretty good loot in the process.

It is possible that the hidden base might be needed to complete some of the upcoming Deadpool challenges, and it is likely that more information will be shared on it in the near future.

Rocket Launchers are in short supply in Fortnite Season 5, Chapter 2, and there’s one location on the map where you can get not just the explosive weapon, but also a Mythic Heavy Assault Rifle as well. 

Epic Games‘ battle royale game that used to be full of challenges and Battle Pass rewards has seen its system shaken up in Season 5. The arrival of The Mandalorian puts great emphasis on collecting bounties, with NPC characters spread right across the island.

In their hands, as you might expect, is a variety of loot. Some are holding better things than others as well, ranging from Mythic to Epic weapons – and more.

There’s one location where players can actually grab themselves a weapon found nowhere else on the map, though.

One of the first things you need to know is that this cannot be found at a specific POI, but it is close to Slurpy Swamp. Let’s run through how you can get these insane guns in Fortnite Season 5.

Where to find Ruckus in Fortnite

  1. Load up Fortnite Battle Royale.
  2. Drop from the Battle Bus near Slurpy Swamp.
  3. Head over to the small compound east of the location, which is right on the waterfront.
  4. Hunt down an NPC called Ruckus.
  5. Take him out and collect the loot, consisting of a Rocket Launcher and Mythic Heavy Assault Rifle.

Here’s where you need to go.

One of the easiest ways to take him down is to build a few structures nearby, and pop your head out to take shots.

Do have in mind that not only will the NPC have more health and a rocket launcher in-hand, but other enemies will also be racing to get the guaranteed loot.
