Since the season has ended, many are still wondering if you’re able to gain access to the content from it, including the Deadpool skin.

Can you still unlock the Deadpool skin?

Unfortunately, no, you cannot gain access to the Deadpool skin in Fortnite anymore, due to the conclusion of chapter 2 season 2. With each season, the game features new challenges and themes, meaning the previous season and its contents go away. This is in attempts to keep things fresh and to ensure players keep checking back in.

Season 2 ran from February 20 to June 17, 2020, and included a large variety of features, including changes to the map, a new Battle Pass, new weapons, factions, and updates to the game’s menus. It was also the season that featured the historical Travis Scott concert, which millions of players attended. The length of season 2 was extended by Epic Games, due to the COVID pandemic, and was the longest season of Fortnite, overall.

To unlock the Deadpool skin, players had to complete this character’s weekly challenges, which required you to find several collectibles, like his shorts and pistols, and other tasks related to the anti-hero. To have access to the Deadpool challenges, you have to buy the Battle Pass, but it’s worth it because it also works for the game’s latest release.

In addition to the weekly challenges needed to unlock the skin, you can also complete biweekly challenges throughout the season. These challenges are slightly different and are specific to each character. One of the silliest challenges will require you to find Deadpool’s plunger and destroy toilets in a particular location. While many games conjure up unexpected challenges, Epic Games tries to make their challenges fit each character’s personality and theme.

The best perk of completing every challenge is to unlock a character’s skin to use during gameplay, but you’ll also get to choose from a variety of Deadpool-themed objects. For example, you’d gain access to a banner, a couple of different sprays, Deadpool gear, a loading screen, and even multiple variations of the Deadpool costume. Another challenge you can try will unlock more goodies such as the traditional red costume, an unmasked version, and the X-Force skin if finished.

As it stands with season 4, Fortnite‘s primary focus is on Wolverine, who has his own set of challenges similar to Deadpool’s. This season uses the same method of accomplishing character-specific missions that result in your ability to unlock and use his skin during the game.
