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.

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.


How to open chests in Upstate New York for Fortnite Week 10 challenges

The tenth week of Fortnite’s Season 4 has arrived, and with a new set of weekly challenges comes one task that asks players to open chests in Upstate New York. While this may sound confusing, here’s everything you need to make this challenge simple. 

Fortnitemares has officially arrived, with Midas reappearing for the first time since his Device experiment backfired badly, flooding the entire island at the end of Season Two. Midas has regained control of The Agency, and his army of Shadow Henchmen are ready to cause chaos.

Of course, the overarching Season 4 storyline is all about superheroes, with Marvel characters invading the island. The evil Galactus is on his way, and heroes like Tony Stark, Dr. Doom, and Wolverine have made Fortnite their home as they prepare for battle.

With these characters, new POIs and locations have appeared, and to complete this specific challenge you’ll need to head to Upstate New York. While this may sound like a strange request, it actually exists as a landmark inside the game. If you aren’t sure where to find it though, we’ve got everything you need to complete this task.

When Stark Industries arrived in Fortnite Season 4, you may have noticed that the POI is located inside what appears to be a massive bubble, which covers a large portion of the north-east corner of the island. It’s easy to spot, as the area is marked on the map for you, and the trees inside it are lovely shades of yellow and orange, compared to the normal green trees elsewhere.

Fans of Marvel Cinematic Universe will know that Stark calls New York his home, with the Stark Industries tower planted in the middle of New York City. Even the Avengers base in later films is located in Upstate New York. It shouldn’t come as a huge surprise then that his location in Fortnite was originally planted in the state of New York, which has now been transported to the island.

Thankfully, once you know where Upstate New York is, it’s easy to complete this Week 10 challenge, as all you need to do is open seven chests inside this landmark. They don’t even have to be opened in the same match, so just pick them up as you see them and you’ll finish this task eventually. If you’re still not sure where to go, we’ve included an image below.

It may take a couple of visits to Upstate New York to finish off this task, as there will be plenty of other people attempting it too. While Stark Industries has the most chests, it may be easier to head to some of the smaller buildings located in the zone, as they will be quieter and make you less likely to face enemies.

It’s well worth completing this task if you’re ranking up your Season 4 Battle Pass, as this offers a massive 25,000 XP reward, which will help you unlock new skins and cosmetic items.
