Can you still unlock the Deadpool skin in Fortnite?

Fortnite season 2 debuted at the beginning of 2020 and was a collaboration between Epic Games and Marvel. After crossovers with Avengers and Star Wars, Fortnite teamed up with Marvel’s anti-hero Deadpool. Players were able to unlock an official skin themed after the crazy merc with a mouth by completing weekly challenges. 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.

Here, we’ll go into everything you’ll need to know about the Deadpool skin in Fortnite.

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.

Along with the weekly challenges required to unlock the skin, you can also execute biweekly challenges throughout the season. Each of these challenges differs from one another and is relative to each character. There are some silly ones too. For example, one of our favorite ridiculous tasks involves finding Deadpool’s plunger and destroying toilets in a specified location. Plenty of games give you some surprising jobs, but Epic Games tries to design theirs around each character’s personality and theme.

One of the coolest things about completing a challenge is that you get to unlock your character’s skin, which you can use during play. In addition, you’ll get the opportunity to select from various Deadpool-themed objects. For instance, once you finish a challenge successfully, you could gain access to a banner, a few different sprays, Deadpool equipment, a loading screen, and sometimes even multiple variations of the Deadpool costume. There’s even an additional challenge you can take on that will unlock even more rewards like the authentic red costume, an unmasked edition, and the X-force skin. 

Fortnite‘s main focus is on Wolverine in the fourth season. His character goes through his own particular series of obstacles, similar to Deadpool’s. This season maintains the same technique of achieving character-specific endeavors that lead to you unlocking and using his skin throughout your gaming adventure.
