Of course, first you'll need to finish the previous Deadpool challenges that get you the classic red Deadpool skin. After that, Deadpool's week 9 challenge involves finding his pants. Oh, Deadpool. Never change.

You'll find Deadpool's pants at Sweaty Sands, on top of the largest building on the east side of town. You'll see Deadpool's red pants flying in the wind on a flagpole at the very top of the building.

Now you can either use the Fortnite salute emote or just try to interact with the flagpole/pants. A prompt should appear to let you salute the pants.
