New Fortnite Deadpool Items Include The X-Force

With Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 2 now being extended to the beginning of June, there's more time than ever to enjoy this season's spy-themed gameplay changes and the inclusion of Marvel's Deadpool into the game--you can use our guide if you're having issues with his challenges. But with more weeks appended onto the season, Epic Games is adding more content too.

Starting today, that includes three new character skins from the X-Force. The anti-hero mutant team which Deadpool features in is a staple in Marvel comics, and was somewhat featured in the film Deadpool 2. In Fortnite, it means you can now purchase skins for Cable, Domino, and Psylock, along with back bling, gliders, and pickaxes for each.

The skins and accessories are live in the Fortnite store now. The X-Force Outfit Bundle, which goes for 3000 V-Bucks, includes all three character skins and three back bling items, including Cable's Cloak, Domino's Pack, and Psylock's Shurayuki. If you're just looking for more pickaxes and gliders, you can grab the X-Force Gear bundle for 2500 V-Bucks, which includes the Psi-Rider glider, Cable's Unstoppable Force harvesting tool, the Probability Dagger harvesting tool, and the Psi-Blade harvesting tool. You can also buy each item individually, with all prices listed below.

    Fortnite Season 3 release date delay - When is new Season 3 start date?

    Fortnite season 2 entered its tenth week yesterday, with a slew of new challenges, rewards and more on the horizon from Epic Games. The developers have released the new content ahead of the incoming season three, which has now been pushed back due to COVID-19.

    Epic Games originally scheduled Fortnite season 2 to end in just over a week on April 30, with fans clamouring for a release from the COVID-19 lockdown.

    The new season will bring a swathe of content, with weapons, skins, items and more.

    However, people will need to wait much longer than expected, with the season now due to land more than one month later.

    Posting on the Epic Games official website, the Fortnite Team said the new season 3 date is June 4.

    They said: "We're extending Chapter 2 - Season 2 of Fortnite beyond the original April 30 date.

    "Our plan is to launch Chapter 2 - Season 3 on June 4.

    "Before then, there's lots of content coming in the current Season."

    They followed a similar pattern with the latest season, as Marvel character Deadpool made an appearance earlier this month.

    The Merc with a Mouth's presence has spawned a selection of X-Force themed skins and items with the latest update.

    Battle Pass holders can still clear themed challenges and unlock the Deadpool and Deadpool Unmasked skins.

    Season 2's extension would give people another month to complete many of these challenges, alongside any other outlying in-game responsibilities.

    Epic Games is yet to reveal any details about what to expect from the third season of chapter 2.

    However, as with every season, players can expect another upcoming battle pass, which includes any V-Bucks, skins, gliders, pickaxes and emotes.

    People can pick up the second season battle pass for 950 V-bucks, and the Battle Pass bundle goes for 2800 V-bucks.

    Players can expect the same prices to apply when Epic Games eventually releases the third season.

    Fortnite Chapter 2 season 2 challenges and where to find golden pipe wrenches

    Fortnite Top Secret

    This season is winding down but there are still plenty of challenges to do. 

    Epic Games

    Fortnite Chapter 2 season 2, which started Feb. 20, gave the game a spy motif. As in previous seasons, players can purchase a Battle Pass to unlock skins, emotes and other cosmetics for 950 V-Bucks, or approximately $9.50. Unlocking the content requires players to earn experience points, and tackling the weekly challenges gives the largest number of points. The most notable unlockables are the fully customizable Maya, the powerful Meowscles and the gold-armed Midas for those who reach tier 100. Players will have until the end of the season to unlock everything. Fortnite Chapter 2 season 3 was set to start on April 30 but has been delayed to June 4, 

    Season 2 also sees the inclusion of the fourth-wall-breaking Marvel hero Deadpool. His outfit is unlockable by completing the special Deadpool weekly challenges. Last Friday saw the release of two more tasks in order to unlock the X-Force variant of the skin. 

    These new challenges coincide with the release of the X-Force Bundle in the Fortnite item shop. The bundle includes skins for Marvel comic characters Psylocke, Cable and Domino. The three, at one point in their comics history, were part of mutant superhero team X-Force.

    As mentioned earlier, Deadpool is the big surprise in season 2. There's a set of weekly challenges that, once completed, should unlock the Deadpool outfit. The first task is to actually find the challenge.

    All that's left is to click on the computer and see the challenges. This'll complete the first challenge for the week. The second has players jumping off the Battle Bus without thanking the bus driver. This is easy to do. Just don't press the designated button to thank the bus driver at the start of the match. Those two challenges will complete the week 1 challenges.

    Week 2 challenges are up. The first requires players to find Deadpool's milk carton.

    The first challenge for the week has players looking for Deadpool's pistols. One can be found in the main hub while the other is located in Meowscles' room. Look for these first before heading out for a match.

    The second task is to enter a phone booth or port-a-potty. There are quite a few of them around, but one that's easy to get to is the phone booth at the yacht. Once it's done, that's it, you have the Deadpool skin. 

    For the week 8 challenges, players can get their hands on the unnamed Deadpool skin.
