Player of the Week - Somnogen
Flak: Hi Stephen! How long have you been playing Fortnite?
Stephen: I've been playing since the Founder’s release.
F: What made you decide to start playing?
S: I loved the idea of the game. A zombie game with a large loot system and the freedom to create your own structures is amazing.
F: What made you decide to start a Fortnite Facebook Group?
S: I admin other gaming communities and noticed at the time there wasn't a multi platform one for Fortnite after finding multiple posts hyping the game. So, I decided to start one for those people inquiring about the game.
F: Could you tell us a little about the group?
S: We are a group where people on all platforms can get together and discuss Fortnite related content, trade materials, exchange strategies, and find other members to play with.
F: Do you have any secrets you'd like to share about Fortnite that could help new players?
S: Invest in a good melee weapon and make the radar towers. Earlier levels ammo could present an issue and having a melee weapon on hand could prove invaluable when ammo is scarce. Radar towers are a good way to learn how to make different shapes and can help you when making your own bases.
F: Wood, stone or metal?
S: I prefer a mix of all three. Metal for walls as they are the most durable, stone for supports and rooftops, and wood for flooring and staircases inside of your base.
F: Which weapon do you use the most and why?
S: Dragonfly. Its an amazing sniper rifle that will effectively one-shot smaller enemies and make short work of some of the larger ones. The fact it doesn't have a scope and it has a good rate of fire makes it a good all purpose primary weapon.
