Marvel’s Midnight Suns is nothing without its eclectic mix of personalities, and few personalities are quite as big as Deadpool, the first DLC character added to the game post-launch.
Deadpool, real name Wade Wilson, has varied abilities that allow him to deal damage to multiple enemies from range. His En Fuego status effect gives him stacks upon stacks of buffs when you play certain abilities, meaning that he’s a hero that can be constantly customised on the battlefield, though 1 En Fuego will be lost whenever he takes damage.
To unlock Deadpool in Marvel’s Midnight Suns, players must have purchased the Season Pass, which costs £39.99/$44.99 or is part of the game’s more expensive editions. Players will also have access to three other DLC characters when they become available, as well as new missions for the characters and 23 skins.
With the Season Pass purchased, players must have completed the Spidermaaaans mission (amounting to around three hours or so of playtime) and waited until Spider-Man unmasks in act one and reveals who he is.
Once done, the A Man of Culture mission for Deadpool can be found at the Mission Table in New York City, which tasks you with finding Deadpool in an art gallery mid-heist, where he will first become a playable character after The Hunter encounters Sin. The mission is nothing too crazy, but you need to take on brand new enemies for Midnight Suns: vampyres (yes, with a y).
Vampyres deal bleed to your cards, which then procs once you use them, meaning that you will take damage at the end of your turn regardless of if you get hit or not. It’s quite the nasty status effect, especially if the bleed effect stacks, but just make full use of the environment and Deadpool’s AOE abilities (like Pain Pinata) to damage to the plenty of them that keep turning up and you should win out the day.
Once complete, head to the bar at The Abbey and shoot the breeze with Deadpool for a bit until he joins your team. You will be able to take him for any specific Deadpool story missions and also hero missions.
Marvel’s Midnight Suns is available on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X & S.
