How to complete the Fortnite Deadpool challenges
Now that Fortnite Chapter 2 season 2 has arrived, there’s a Fortnite Deadpool skin on the way. Following a big delay, the first phase of the battle royale game’s rebirth was an extremely long one, but our patience has finally been rewarded.
There are some surprised to be found in the brand new battle pass trailer, and in the refreshed menu. In the footage released by Epic—which you can watch below—a Deadpool Fortnite skin is revealed, but you won’t be unlocking Wade in the traditional way. So, here’s how to complete the Fortnite Deadpool challenges to pave the way towards unlocking the skin.

How to find the Fortnite Deadpool letter
Once you launch the refreshed battle pass menu, just above and to the right of the challenges table in the middle is a little vent: click on it to get started on the secret Fortnite Deadpool challenges.
Once you’ve done that, you’ll find a supremely messy room that only the Merc with the Mouth could possibly abide. Click on the computer on the right and you’ll be presented with some hidden challenges. The first is to find the Fortnite Deadpool letter to Epic Games. Exit the computer screen and you’ll be able to interact with the letter on the ground to the left of the monitor.
Once you’ve enjoyed the crazed writings of Wade himself, returning to the computer will give you your second challenge: not thanking the bus driver. He might be a murderer, but I never realised he was impolite. Anyway, resisting your more polite instincts in your next match will bag you a new banner.
It looks like it’s worth checking in again in future weeks for further challenges that’ll get us the Fortnite Deadpool skin proper. For now, to sum up, here are the Fortnite Deadpool challenges:
- Find Deadpool’s letter to Epic Games
- Don’t thank the bus driver
You can spot the fourth-wall-breaking masked murderer right at the end of the trailer below, bathing in a pool of V-Bucks. Hopefully it doesn’t cost quite that many to unlock him, but it’s not yet clear whether the Fortnite Deadpool skin will be available as an item shop purchase or during a limited-time event.
Of course, Deadpool isn’t the first Marvel ‘hero’ to make it into Fortnite. We got to enjoy playing as Thanos in a memorable MCU crossover mode, but hopefully this time the Merc with the Mouth will have the emotes and cosmetic trimmings to fully express his zany personality.
Wilson appears alongside a wide array of fresh skins, including the upsettingly buff Meowscles—the anthropomorphic feline comes a little too soon after the recent Cats film, thank you very much. The other skins are also featured in the trailer, surrounding what looks like a hologram of the game’s map. Regardless, there’s plenty to be excited about if your cosmetics wardrobe could do with a little refresh.
