Deadpool is Hiding in Fortnite's New Battle Pass Menu

Deadpool has his very own hideout in Fortnite.

Fortnite's new Season 2 has just launched, the second second to debut in the huge Chapter 2 relaunch from last year. Turns out, the new season has introduced Deadpool in an odd way.

From the Battle Pass area of the main Fortnite Battle Royale menu, you can see Deadpool's logo next to a vent fan. Click on this, and you'll be taken through to the screen below, which is apparently Deadpool's very own hideout within Fortnite.

Click on the computer icon, and you'll be taken through to a brief list of 'Deadpool's Challenges.' These are special tasks that can only be accessed if you own the new Fortnite Battle Pass, which will cost you roughly $10 in in-game currency.

As of right now, Deadpool's Challenges are very simple. You need to not thank the bus driver before you dive from the Battle Bus, and you need to find Deadpool's letter, which can be found on the floor just to the left of the computer.

Deadpool's note addresses Epic Games directly. It's all a bit weird and very meta, but it's basically teasing a special Deadpool crossover event that's due to come to Fortnite Battle Royale at some point in the future. When this crossover event will be kicking off, we've got absolutely no idea.

In the cinematic trailer above for Fortnite Season 2, you can catch a brief glimpse of Deadpool towards the end. The new seasonal event is live now on all platforms once you've downloaded the latest patch, introducing a new Battle Pass with rewards, a new area on the map, and the new 'special agents' theme.
