Multiplayer Xbox game Fortnite has swept Rye High School with many students pulling all (fort) nighters.  The game which revolves around collecting weapons and resources in order to be the last player surviving was released in July and added the popular “Battle Royale” game mode in late September.  After adding the game mode the popularity skyrocketed and it now sits at the top of the Xbox store.  The main appeal of the game is the ability to play with friends in the popular “squad” mode in which groups of 4 compete to be the last team standing.

Senior Eddie Collins said, “I’ve been playing every day for the last couple week and finally got my first squad win last night.”  You begin the game in a flying bus and must chose a location to glide into.  Once you land, you and your squad must loot the area for chests, in hope of finding a gold scar, the best gun in the game.

Senior Dylan Concavage said, “The gold scar is my favorite gun, every time I get it it is pretty much an automatic win.”  As the game progresses, supply drops will fall out of the sky, holding the best weapons, creating a hot spot on the map.  You and your team must remain in the storm as it shrinks and be the last squad remaining.
