After a long delay, Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 2 is here , now with more Deadpool! …
… kind of.
Deadpool will be in Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 2, but he’s not in there yet. Also if you aren’t aware, Deadpool is a fictional character from the Marvel universe. He’s had a pair of movies made about him in recent years, voiced by actor Ryan Reynolds. It’s not clear if Reynolds will have some role in Fortnite in the future or not.
But this isn’t the first time we’ve seen a Marvel character in Fortnite. Epic Games teamed up with Marvel in the past to bring us The Avengers and Thanos. Whenever Deadpool does enter Fortnite, it will be the skin everyone will want to use.

Deadpool is in Fortnite Season 2? How do we know
If you watch the Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 2 trailer above, you’ll be able to spot Deadpool throughout the video.
For instance when Peely pulls on a book to spin the bookcase around at around 25 seconds into the video, you can see Deadpool on the left side holding up a tuxedo. If you watch it at normal speed you probably won’t be able to see it. But if you pause the video, you can notice it.

Then near the end of the video, you can see a character move out of the way to reveal a tree. On the tree are markings.
One of the markings on the tree is undeniably Deadpool.

How do I unlock Deadpool in Fortnite?
As we mentioned before, you can’t unlock him yet. But if you want to unlock Deadpool, Epic Games has made it clear you need to purchase the Battle Pass for Chapter 2 Season 2. The Battle Pass costs 950 V-Bucks (or about $ 9.50). At the bottom of a teaser for Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 2, it includes small print that reads “Battle Pass now. Deadpool later. Maximum effort.”
Also, Fortnite leaks seem to indicate the same information.
Yes, Deadpool will be part of the Battle Pass and it includes challenges. Related strings:
– A BattlePass is required to access Deadpool and his challenges
– If you want to see Deadpool again, deliver 950 unmarked V-Bucks to the Battle Pass
