How To Unlock Fortnite's Deadpool Skin - Challenges And Requirements
Complete a couple of simple Fortnite challenges and you can earn yourself the merc with the mouth.
Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 2 began on February 20, and we've known since then that the metatextual motormouth Deadpool would be joining as a special skin--just not when. That day has finally come, as Epic has announced that Deadpool is reporting for duty. You can unlock the special skin by completing a set of special Deadpool challenges, which involve his pistols and either a phone booth or a port-a-potty. Here's exactly what you need to do.
To earn Deadpool's skin, you just have to own the battle pass and complete his new Week 7 challenges. Other Deadpool challenges have been rolling out progressively throughout the season, but a couple of new challenges began this week, and you don't need to have completed all of the previous ones to access them. Nevertheless, most of them are fairly straightforward, and you can find the list in Deadpool's secret room by clicking on the vent from the main hub. Doing them will net you rewards like Deadpool-themed sprays.
- Find Deadpool's letter to Epic Games
- Don't thank the bus driver
- Find Deadpool's milk carton
- Find Deadpool's chimichangas around HQ
- Find Deadpool's toilet plunger
- Destroy toilets
- Find Deadpool's katanas
- Deal damage to opponent's structures
- Find Deadpool's stuffed unicorn
- Visit the Red, Yellow, Green, Blue, and Purple Steel Bridges
- Find Deadpool's big black marker
- Deface GHOST or SHADOW posters
- Find Deadpool's two pistols
- Enter a phone booth or port-a-potty
The first new challenge this week is to find Deadpool's pistols, which are located in the main hub and in Meowscle's room. Then during a match, enter a phone booth or a port-a-potty during a match. Once you complete those two challenges, you'll win yourself one bona fide Deadpool skin.
Epic has noted that there appears to be an issue with the challenges for some players, and it's investigating. An update is in the process of rolling all to all players, so the challenges should hopefully be available to everyone soon.

A fix is rolling out for the Deadpool Week 7 challenge. It will take some time to for the fix to reach everyone, thank you for your patience!— Fortnite Status (@FortniteStatus) April 3, 2020
We'll provide another update once the challenge has been successfully granted to all Battle Pass owners.
The skin and special challenges come alongside a limited-time event that Epic teased recently, which suggested a takeover of the yacht. That also happens to be one of the easiest spots to complete the second challenge, so you can head over that way to complete the challenge and take part in the festivities.
