Whether you're a kid, young at heart, or just like playing with toys, it's always fun to go back to fiddling with LEGO blocks every once in a while. If you're desperately trying to avoid lacerating your feet by stepping on them, then themed LEGO video games are an excellent all-ages alternative. Not to mention, there are plenty of LEGO games that feature our favorite universes and franchises at the forefront. Case in point, LEGO Marvel Super Heroes.
The first installment of the LEGO Marvel Super Heroes series came out in 2013 and saw a Switch release in 2021. Players can choose from over 180 Marvel characters and use their unique abilities to save the LEGO world from Marvel's rogues' gallery of villains. One of those characters is everyone's favorite fourth-wall-breaking merc with a mouth, Deadpool.
As a fan-favorite character, he isn't easy to unlock. Here's a quick guide on how to unlock Deadpool in LEGO Marvel Super Heroes.
Here's how to unlock Deadpool in 'LEGO Marvel Super Heroes'.
While many of the characters in LEGO Marvel Super Heroes can be unlocked via normal progression or even using cheat codes, Deadpool is one of two secret characters who can only be unlocked via a special method and cannot be accessed in any other way.
Players must collect 11 Red Bricks scattered throughout the game in order to unlock him as a playable character. According to outlets like GameZone, there are actually 15 Red Bricks, but four of them are available at the start of the game.
But obtaining them is no easy task. Many of them are locked behind special challenges and story content that you'll have to take care of first in order to properly collect them. You'll have to progress through much of the main story to even access those challenges. Luckily, the game makes it worth your while with a special reward for each brick obtained.
Here are the locations for each Red Brick used to unlock Deadpool.
