Deadpool has made his way from the pages of Marvel comics to the Fortnite universe.

What happened:

  • Clues of Deadpool have popped up throughout the recent Fortnite season, and now he is finally here. The new Deadpool character skin dropped into Fortnite Friday, giving gamers a chance to play as the comic book hero.
  • Anyone who bought the season battle pass can unlock the character if you complete one simple task.
  • Find two pistols hidden in the menu screens. Once you find them, jump into the match, find a phone booth and hop inside. You will then become Deadpool.

There’s more than just a skin

  • According to The Verge, gamers can unlock Deadpool’s katanas weapons and a different version of the costume where he’s not wearing a mask.
  • The Verge said: “Perhaps the most fun addition, though, is that the yacht in the northeastern part of the map has been transformed into a Deadpool party boat, complete with giant balloons and a helicopter landing pad.”

A history of Fortnite and comic books

  • Fortnite has teamed up with comic book companies to bring the characters to life inside the game.
  • One of the first happened during the release of “Avengers: Infinity War” when Thanos appeared and left his infinity gauntlet in the game.
  • The Avengers made a brief appearance in the game as well.
  • Batman had a major impact on the game, as did Harley Quinn, the girlfriend of Batman’s nemesis, the Joker.
