Fortnite Deadpool skin: How to unlock Deadpool by completing weekly challenges explained

Everything you need to know about unlocking Deadpool in Fortnite.

Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 2 includes a very special, very super, guest - Deadpool.

Completing a series of special Deadpool Challenges will unlock the Deadpool outfit, which will allow you to play as the red suited anti-hero.

Deadpool joins Tntina and Maya in being one of the new skins that you can unlock as part of the Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 2 Battle Pass.

Note this particular challenge is no longer able to be completed. What's new? Chapter 3 Season 3 has arrived! New additions include Reality Seeds and Saplings and riding animals, along with the new Battle Pass, characters collection and map changes. It's a good idea to know how to get XP fast in Fortnite.

How to get Deadpool by completing weekly challenges in Fortnite

If you want to unlock the Deadpool skin in Fortnite, then you must first buy the Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 2 Battle Pass. Without that you won't be able to take full advantage of the Battle Pass or gain the ability to unlock Deadpool.

Battle Pass in hand you now need to complete a series of weekly challenges to unlock the Deadpool skin. Each week contains different challenges and, unlike your typical Fortnite challenges, you have to complete the Deadpool challenges in a specific order.

This means that you must complete the first challenge, 'Find Deadpool's letter to Epic Games' for example, before you can complete the second challenge, which might be 'Don't thank the bus driver.'

For every challenge set you complete, you'll earn a special Deadpool themed reward. This included a Deadpool inspired weapon wrap and banner, among many others.

Don't worry if you're starting the Deadpool challenges late; the challenges will continue to unlock as you complete them, until you're up-to-date.

Complete enough of these challenges and you'll evenutally unlock the Deadpool skin.

How to find the Deadpool weekly challenges in Fortnite

Unlike the other new Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 2 skins, like Maya, Deadpool is unlocked by progressing through the Battle Pass.

Instead, you need to complete a set of challenges each week, which will then allow you to unlock Deadpool at a later point in this season.

Before you do this, however, you need to find Deadpool's Fortnite hideout, so that you can learn what the challenges are. To do this head to the Battle Pass section in the main menu.

There you'll find a Deadpool symbol above a vent - click on it to enter Deadpool's hideout.

Once you're in there, click on the computer to view the current weekly challenges you need to complete to unlock the Deadpool skin.

Don't be worried by the fact that you only have one challenge available - the second will appear once you've completed the first.

Simply leave the computer screen that displays the Deadpool challenges and, on the floor of Deadpool's hideout, you'll find the letter.
