Well I commend your patience, the Fortnite Deadpool skin is officially here. Confirmed at the end of the video below, we now know that we can finally get the Wade Wilson outfit, along with a raft of other Deadpool cosmetics.
The fact that a Deadpool Fortnite skin was due to come to the game has been beyond doubt for a while, but this week is the finally the one we've all been waiting for. So, here's how to complete the Fortnite Deadpool challenges that pave the way towards unlocking the skin.

How to start the Fortnite Deadpool skin challenges
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 only the Merc with a Mouth could abide. Click on the computer on the right and you'll be presented with some hidden challenges. Here are all of them in full:
- 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
- Destroy opponent's structures
- Find Deadpool's stuffed unicorn
- Embrace the rainbow by visiting the red, yellow, green, blue and purple bridges in Fortnite.
- Find Deadpool's big black marker
- Find GHOST or SHADOW recruitment posters
- Find the two Fortnite Deadpool pistols
- Enter a Fortnite Phone Booth or Portapotty to become the super-est of Superheroes
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, resist your instinctive good manners in your next match to bag yourself a new banner. Once that's done there are further misplaced items Wade wants finding.

Next is the Deadpool milk carton: snag that on top of the urinal in Wade's man cave and then start your hunt for the chimichangas. The three tortilla treats can be found in and around the various new parts of the battle royale menu. Above is a screenshot gallery showing you all their locations.
From there you can click the links for the other objectives in the challenge list above, at least for the ones that aren't self-explanatory. Basically a trend has been emerging: Deadpool is both messy and forgetful.
Note: you must do the challenges in the above order; only when the first is completed, the second one is available to tick off, and so on. Once you've completed them all and emerged from a phone booth or port-a-potty, the skin is yours. I look forward to admiring your SUPERHERO LANDING.

Fortnite Deadpool cosmetics
Now Wade Wilson has properly arrived in Fortnite, there are a few more Merc-themed cosmetics to buy in the item shop. As you can see in the tweet above courtesy of @HYPEX, Deadpool appears in the item shop, moves everything else away, and replaces it with the Dragacorn glider, Meaty Mallets pickaxe, and the Scootin' emote. They're collected together in the Deadpool Gear Bundle, too.
