Fortnite Season 2 is poised to add a Deadpool skin to the game. When this will happen, hasn't been divulged, but it should be any week now. That said, the back bling that will accompany the skin has leaked, revealing that in addition to the skin, players will be able to cop the character's katana blades and wear them on their back. Of course, they aren't the most iconic superhero weapons. In fact, Deadpool uses plenty of weapons that aren't his trusty katanas, but if you were going to add a Deadpool weapon as the skin's back bling, they would be the ones you'd probably choose.
The leak comes way of the game's files, which dataminers have been digging through. In these files are assets for the new backbling, which will presumably be free to anyone who cops the skin. You can see the item for yourself, below, courtesy of Fortnite leaker HypeX.
