Fortnite Patch 12.20 went live Tuesday adding a new Deadpool loading screen to the game.

The loading screen, one of several Deadpool tie-ins added to Fortnite in the past weeks, bears the name Cuddletime Coup.

Fortnite Patch 12.2 Adds New Deadpool Loading Screen

"There's a new leader in town," reads the description.

The screen shows Deadpool sitting in a Cuddle Team Leader-themed bed, clutching a Cuddle Team Leader stuffed animal, with a Cuddle Team Leader lamp to his right. His bed is covered with weapons — dynamite, C4, a Deadpol-themed grenade, his utility belt of guns and swords — and foodstuffs. There's a mostly-eaten pizza, some french fries, and a full bottle of Slurp Juice on the bed as well.

It is currently unknown how players unlock the loading screen.

Previous Deadpool cosmetics include his pair of katanas as a back bling and a full Deadpool skin. The Deadpool skin has yet to be made available, but players are completing the Deadpool challenges in the hopes that doing so will eventually unlock the Merc with a Mouth's outfit in-game.

Fortnite Patch 12.20 also added the Choppa, a new helicopter players can use to traverse the map.
