Fortnite Deadpool Challenges: Where to find Deadpool's shorts and salute their pants

*** If you're looking for the Fortnite Deadpool floaties locations for Season 3, we have a separate guide for those ***

Week 9 of the season has arrived, and with the weekly timings back on track again it's time for some new Fortnite Deadpool challenges. Hopefully by this point in proceedings you'll be familiar with Wade Wilson's toilet hideout, hidden away in the depths of HQ, and if you've been ticking off these assignments each week then you'll have the Deadpool outfit in your Fortnite locker already. That doesn't mean these challenges have come to an end though, as you still have the X-Force color for the outfit to earn by finding Deadpool's shorts then saluting their pants. We'd expect nothing less, to be honest.

You've probably noticed there's a real Deadpool vibe running through Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 2 right now, with both the Battle Bus and The Yacht getting a red and black Merc with a Mouth makeover. If you haven't fully unlocked this Marvel-ous outfit for your locker yet, then read on and we'll show you how to complete all the Fortnite Deadpool challenges released so far.

To access the Fortnite Deadpool challenges, you need to go to the Battle Pass tab of the main game menu then select the spinning fan next to the steps on the right hand side. This will take you through the vents into Deadpool's hidden lair, which definitely isn't an abandoned toilet. Here, you can select the computer sat on top of the sink, which will then reveal the weekly challenges.

To get the ball rolling for week 4 of the Fortnite Deadpool challenges you need to find two of Deadpool's katanas, which as usual are hidden around the HQ. Well, the first one isn't exactly hidden as it's sticking out of the mirror in our den.

The other Deadpool's katana is fittingly in the Upgrade Vault, alongside Maya and surrounded by stacks of weapons. Once you've grabbed them both you can move on to part two for this week.

Taking down opponent's structures is most easily done in Team Rumble mode, where more building tends to take place as everyone starts with a supply of mats. Explosive weapons are the best way to deal damage, as the full force of the damage counts towards your total which can often exceed the strength of the building you're attacking.

To finish week 3's challenge you need to destroy three Fortnite toilets, which can be found in bathrooms in most residential buildings – portable toilets outside don't count, so ignore them. If you're looking for an area to complete this challenge quickly then head to Homely Hills, one of the Fortnite landmarks that is a group of five houses just northwest of Pleasant Park. Four of these buildings (all except the northernmost one) contain toilets, so get smashing and you'll be done in no time, adding the Wade Grenade spray to your locker.
