Epic Games revealed Marvel’s popular Deadpool character as a Battle Pass exclusive skin for Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 2, much to the surprise of players, and here’s how to get it.

The game’s latest major update has been very much centered around a gold theme, but on February 20 – when the v12.00 patch went live – there’s two words that appear to be heading the advertising for Season 2 – Top Secret.

While fans will be hoping that update changes aren’t top secret, as they have been for quite some time in the absence of patch notes, two trailers for the new season were actually quite revealing. One of the new skins was confirmed to be Deadpool, a popular character from the Marvel comic series.

Closer look at Deadpool in Fortnite

There has already been some crossover between Fortnite and Marvel in the past, with The Avengers making their way into the battle royale game in Season 8, and now Deadpool has also been added to Epic Games’ vast collection of skins.

The skin caught many members of the game’s community off guard, with leaker HYPEX showing off the skin soon after the patch went live in-game, as seen below. Anyway, let’s take a look at how you can get your hands on it.


How to get Fortnite’s Deadpool skin

The first set of clues for getting Fortnite’s Deadpool skin were found on the day of the update, as seen in a post from FireMonkey. We now know that using the computer inside Deadpool’s secret hideout, you will access a list of challenges to complete – with new ones being added weekly.

  1. Click on a vent in Fortnite Season 2 menu to enter a secret room, and load up the computer (only for Battle Pass owners).
  2. Obtain Deadpool’s letter to Epic Games.
  3. Don’t thank the bus driver when jumping from Battle Bus.
  4. Find three of Deadpool’s Chimichangas in the Battle Pass HQ.
  5. Find one of Deadpool’s Milk Cartons in his secret hideaway.
  6. Find Deadpool’s plunger next to his toilet.
  7. Destroy 3 toilets.
  8. Find Deadpool’s Katanas. One in his mirror, one in Maya’s upgrade vault.
  9. Deal damage to opponent’s structures (10,000).
  10. Find Deadpool’s stuffed unicorn in Meowscles gym.
  11. Visit all five colored bridges and embrace the rainbow.
  12. Find Deadpool’s Big Black Marker.
  13. Visit three SHADOW or GHOST recruitment posters. You can find all three in Frenzy Farm.
  14. Wait until more challenges appear on Deadpool’s computer and complete them accordingly.

Where is Deadpool’s secret room?

After clicking the vent and accessing the computer inside Deadpool’s secret hideout, you will see a list of challenges on screen. These will be updated as the season goes on and once they are all completed, presumably players will be rewarded with the skin.

For Week 2, another two tasks were added, as we have to find Deadpool some food and drink. His Milk Carton can be found next to his cubicle, while the three Chimichangas are dotted around the HQ. The first is under the main challenge table, the second in Maya’s upgrade vault, and finally the last can be found on the table in Brutus’ briefing room.

How to find plunger and Destroy toilets 

For week 3, it’s time to get messy. You’ll need to find Deadpool’s plunger in the toilet, and then destroy three toilets on the map.

How to find Katanas

For week 4, you only need to find one item type – Deadpool’s Katanas backbling. You’ll find the first sliced through his door in the HQ. The second is in Maya’s upgrade vault.

How to find stuffed Unicorn and visit bridges

In Week 5, you’ll find Deadpool’s stuffed unicorn in Meowscle’s gym, and then need to visit each of the five-colored steel bridges to embrace the rainbow.

More challenges are expected to be released for the Deadpool skin in the weeks ahead as well. We’ll continue to update this article with more information in the future, including guides for specific challenges.

The Fortnite Champion Series (FNCS) is back for Chapter 2 Season 4, with a return to the beloved Trios format that fans have been clamoring to see make a return. With the action kicking off on October 9, here’s everything you need to know to make sure you catch all of the action.

FNCS is making its return to trios in Season 4 for the first time since the inaugural Season X event. While it’s been a pretty poorly kept secret, there are some changes to the format from when it last appeared in August 2019.

With qualifiers now completed, we’re heading into the main stage of the FNCS Season 4 event, with a full month of competitive Fortnite on the way featuring some of the biggest names in the game competing for their cut of the prize money.

FNCS Season 4 format

FNCS Season 4 returns to the Trios format that has been used in the past, and is arguably the most popular competitive format in the tournament’s history, with past events filled with massive plays and huge battles that make for the ultimate Fortnite viewing experience.

As always, FNCS runs on a points-based scoring system, with your final placement in matches contributing to your overall score at the end of the weekend. Those who manage to win a game will receive 25 points as their reward, with the values decreasing incrementally down to 17th place, with anyone finishing below that scoring nothing. There are points for finding eliminations though, so players will be on the lookout for enemies to wipe out and add to their tally.

  • Victory Royale: 25 Points
  • 2nd: 20 Points
  • 3rd: 16 Points
  • 4th: 14 Points

  • 6th: 12 Points
  • 7th: 11 Points
  • 8th: 10 Points
  • 9th: 9 Points

FNCS will be running in all the same regions it has been for the last few seasons: NA-West, NA-East, South American, EU, Middle East, Asia, and OCE, with the competition running on PC and consoles.
