Now that Fortnite Chapter 2 season 2 has arrived, there's a Fortnite Deadpool skin on the way. You can spot the fourth-wall-breaking masked murderer at the end of the season 2 cinematic trailer, but Wade also appears in the Fortnite helicopter trailer. Sadly the skin didn't launch in that same week, as I'd hoped.
There are some surprises 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 appear to 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 the Mouth could abide. Click on the computer on the right and you'll be presented with some hidden challenges. Here are all of them so far:
- 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.
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, 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.
In the helicopter trailer above that landed with Fortnite update 12.20, the Merc with the Mouth features pretty prominently. Does this mean we'll finally get to unlock him? New hidden tasks tend to unlock every Friday, so we'll wait and see on March 20.
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.
