Fortnite Chapter 2 season 2 started Thursday and 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 while playing with the weekly challenges giving 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 reached tier 100. Season 2 also saw the inclusion of the fourth-wall-breaking Marvel hero, Deadpool. His outfit can be unlocked by completing the special Deadpool weekly challenges.
This is a simple challenge since all that’s needed is to land at three locations at the start of a match. Check the map below on where to find the three locations to drop in.
The Grotto and the Shark are two new points of interest added in season 2. The Shark is located on an island to the northwest of the island and the Grotto is on the east side. See the map above or the in-game map to find the spots.
Henchmen are NPCs found at the new points of interest. They carry keycards and info on where to find secret vaults that contain plenty of loot.
Part of the secret agent makeover this season is an ID scanner for certain doors. To open these doors, players will have to down a henchman. Stand next to them as they crawl on the ground and select the carry option. Bring them to an ID scanner, let it finish the scan and the door will open.
Phone booths are scattered across the island and let players change their outfit into either a ghost or shadow agency outfit.
A new game mechanic in season 2 is the throwing of consumables. Equip them and throw them like grenades to help out a teammate who’s a distance away.
Here are the rest of the challenges:
As mentioned earlier, Deadpool is the big surprise in season 2. There’s a set of weekly challenges that should unlock the Deadpool outfit once completed. The first task is to actually find the challenge.
From the game lobby, click on the vent off to the right.
This will take players to Deadpool’s secret room.
Players can read his meta letter to Epic saying how he could design a better Battle Bus.
All that’s left is to click on the computer and see the challenges. This will 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 Deadpool challenges and it’s the waiting game for week 2.
