'Deadpool' is coming to 'Fortnite' Chapter Two

Fortnite has become one of the most popular online deathmatch videogames ever made, and now that Season Two of Chapter Two of the franchise has finally arrived, that popularity shows no signs of dying out anytime soon.

So what better way to celebrate the expansion of the shooting and crafting free-for-all than by giving players the opportunity to step into the red spandex and body armor of the one Marvel comics character who we all know would absolutely love every moment of the carnage in real life.

Watch the trailer for the original Deadpool in the video below: 

Who am I talking about? Why, none other than The Merc With the Mouth, Deadpool, who we now know is going to be available as a skin as part of the DLC for the latest installment.

However, according to @SkinTrackerCom, which keeps an eye on all upcoming Fortnight skins and costumes: "Deadpool will be part of the Battle Pass and it includes challenges." This means that he won't be available straight away; to access him you need to buy the Battle Pass yourself in-game.

According to a post by the Fortnite-related Twitter account FireMonkey, once you've done this, you can unlock the skin by clicking on a vent in the main menu to enter a secret room.

Then access the computer inside, and find and obtain Deadpool's letter. After that, all you need to do is wait until challenges appear on Deadpool's computer and complete to unlock Deadpools signature red outfit to wear yourself.

This isn't the first time a Marvel character has appeared in the game either, with the Avengers and Thanos himself making their way into the battle royale game back in season 10. However, it's fair to say that the half-crazy Deadpool probably deserves to be there more than anyone else, wouldn't you say?
