Fortnite players can unlock a new ‘X-Force’ skin variant for Deadpool by completing the Marvel superhero’s week 9 challenges.

Although fans have already had the chance to unlock Deadpool’s signature look in Fortnite during weeks 7 and 8, the Marvel character still has more content for fans to collect.

In Fortnite’s week 9 challenges, players will be able to pick up a new skin variant which is inspired by the Deadpool’s parody of the X-men in Deadpool 2.

Players can now unlock another variant of Deadpool’s Fortnite skin.

The white X-Force variant is set to be released with two styles in Fortnite, one with a mask on and one without, similar to the signature Deadpool skin.

Fortnite’s Week 9 challenges, which were leaked early by iFireMonkey, will require players to find Deadpool’s shorts and salute his pants in-game.

As with previous weeks, the location of Deadpool’s first challenge can be found within the Battle Pass tab. For Week 9 players will need to look inside of Midas’ room, after selecting him in the Agents tab, and Deadpool’s shorts will be hanging over the chair next to him.

The second part of the challenge requires players to track down Deadpool’s pants, which are tied to flagposts in-game, and use the ‘Salute’ emote in front of them.

During the latest update, Deadpool’s pants have been added to different locations in Fortnite, with one pair found on top of Mount Kay and another found on a roof in Sweaty Sands, however, only one of them is needed to complete the task.

Once you manage to complete these challenges, you will be rewarded with Deadpool’s X-Force skin which can be found in your Locker.

Deadpool’s Fortnite Takeover was set to run until Season 2 ended on April 30, but after Epic Games announced that they would be extending the season, it is unclear just how many challenges and rewards the Marvel superhero will have on offer.


Ali-A uncovers teasers for future Fortnite skins: Matrix, Witcher, Ant-Man & more

YouTuber and longtime Fortnite superfan Alastair ‘Ali-A’ Aiken has discovered big clues for more crossover skins that could be coming soon to the game.

Season 5 of Fortnite kicked off with a bang as The Mandalorian and Baby Yoda arrived on The Island. Since then, we’ve seen God of War’s Kratos, Halo’s Master Chief, The Walking Dead’s Daryl and Michonne, and even Predator get their own skins.

So who’s coming next? Well, Ali-A has some ideas based on a hint list that was sent to him by Fortnite creators Epic Games themselves, and it seems as though more epic movie crossovers are on their way.

What new skins are coming in Fortnite Season 5?

In a new video celebrating the arrival of Terminator, Ali-A also revisited a list of items that he’d been sent by Epic Games, with each item acting as a teaser for a ‘hunter’ that would be coming to the game at some point during Season 5.

It appears that many hints on the list have already been discovered: The cup is The Mandalorian and Baby Yoda; the sunglasses are Terminator; the face paint is Kratos; the mud mask is Predator; and the syrup is Mancake, for example.

As for the remaining items on the list, there are some very interesting theories about who they could relate to, and which iconic characters could be coming to The Island next.

Ali-A explains that the Ant-Farm item is most likely a hint at Ant-Man finally joining the game, as he was given his own point of interest during Season 4’s Marvel extravaganza but was never added as a character.

The red and blue jellybeans could be a hint towards characters from The Matrix. This will likely be either Neo or Trinity, as they’re both set to return in the upcoming sequel Matrix 4 that’s due out later in 2021.

Tokens also appear as an item on the list, and Ali-A believes this is a hint towards The Witcher protagonist Geralt, especially as the Netflix adaptation of the game features a song called Toss A Coin To Your Witcher.

A crossover with The Witcher could be coming to Fortnite.

A baseball bat could be a hint towards Scout from Team Fortress 2, or it could have pointed to The Walking Dead crossover that already happened. Similarly, space bananas could be a hint towards Samus Aran from Metroid, or it could have just been about Master Chief.

Elsewhere, the golden back scratcher is likely going to represent the long-rumored Female Midas skin, as it links up with the ‘Midas Touch’ myth. As for the hand wraps, even Ali-A is unsure what they could hint towards, but it could be a boxer of some sort.

We’ll have to wait and see whether any of these crossover skin predictions come true before Season 5 of Fortnite comes to an end on March 15, 2021.
