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.

Completing these themed tasks appear to allow players to unlock a number of Marvel-inspired rewards, too, as seen with this banner for Week 1 of the Deadpool challenges.

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.

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.

Fortnite Season 5 is upon us, and it’s got some very exciting things in store – but the one thing fans are most looking forward to is the leaked crossover with The Mandalorian.

Following the success of Season 4’s Nexus War, which introduced skins and weapons based on some of Marvel’s most beloved superheroes and villains including Storm and Venom, Fortnite seems to be once again teaming up with another Disney-owned franchise, Star Wars.

Recent posts from a number of leakers including ShiinaBR and others have suggested a crossover with The Mandalorian is imminent, with bounty hunter Din Djarin and the adorable viral sensation Baby Yoda both being a part of the major Season 5 update.

There’s even been a leaked advertisement for the Battle Pass, which shows off the incoming Mandalorian skin accompanied by a little Baby Yoda, which is presumed to be another Back Bling cosmetic like Rocket Racoon, from Guardians of the Galaxy.

How to get The Mandalorian Fortnite skin

We won’t know exactly how to unlock the new Mandalorian secret skin and accompanying Baby Yoda Back Bling cosmetic until Season 5 drops on December 2, but we can definitely speculate.

In previous seasons, featured skins have been unlocked when players complete Battle Pass challenges. It’s likely that The Mandalorian skin will be acquired through a similar unlock method. It will look something like this:

  1. Load up Fortnite Battle Royale.
  2. Head into the Battle Pass menu.
  3. Access the Battle Pass challenges screen, and wait for the relevant challenges to appear.
  4. Once they’ve been made available, it’s down to you to complete them.

We’ll update this page as soon as we know how to unlock these new cosmetics, so keep an eye out.

When does Fortnite Season 5 start?

Fortnite has a lot to live up to after Season 4. It saw the introduction of a number of Marvel heroes as well as the Devourer of Worlds, Galactus, for an epic Nexus War finale event.

Season 5 will kick off on December 2, although an exact time hasn’t been confirmed. It’s also been hinted by dataminers that there will be another Black Hole style blackout to bridge the gap between the end of Season 4 and the beginning of Season 5.

It’s not expected that the whole season will be themed around The Mandalorian, unlike the previous Marvel-focused Season 4, but it looks like it will likely feature enough Star Wars content to keep fans of the galaxy far, far away happy.

Season 5 also brings with it the arrival of the new Fortnite Crew membership, which includes the Battle Pass, V-Bucks, exclusive skins, and other monthly benefits for a set price.

We will continue to update this guide as new information becomes available.
