Players will also be able to unlock the Deadpool Fortnite skin tomorrow with a new set of challenges going live. Here’s everything you need to know about the event including the Deadpool Fortnite skin and skin style.
How to Get the Deadpool Fortnite Skin and when do we get it
The Deadpool Fortnite skin will be available tomorrow, Friday 3rd April once the week 7 challenges are unlocked. They’ll unlock at 3pm BST (2pm UTC).
In order to get/unlock the skin, you’ll need to have completed all the challenges up to week 6 to view the week 7 challenges, You’ll then need to complete the week 7 challenges in order to unlock the skin.
It seems as though once the second challenge is completed, due to the nature of the challenge, you’ll transform into the Deadpool skin. However, this is not confirmed but we’ve had something similar in the past. As always, we’ll post the latest information tomorrow when the challenges are available.

In regards to the Battle Bus, the Yacht, and the Supply Drops redesign, it’s possible this will happen after the Deadpool challenges go live tomorrow at 2pm UTC.
Furthermore, Deadpool will be presenting an item shop reset, although we don’t know which day this will be. We also don’t know what will be in the shop on that day, but it’ll be interesting to see how Epic excuse this.
