Fortnite Video Shows You How to Be a Combat Medic

A YouTuber has found a strange way to help your team in Fortnite as a "combat medic."

YouTube channel Sushii Films has uploaded a new video that showcases a unique way to play Fortnite‘s 50 vs. 50 mode. 

As you may know, players in Fortnite‘s 50 vs. 50 mode are able to revive anyone on their 50 person squad. They can even drop some healing items for their squad whenever they have them available. It’s a helpful feature that many players utilize whenever they are able to do so. 

However, Sushii Films takes things a step further. He showcases how it’s entirely possible for a player to assume a combat medic role in this mode. While that certainly includes reviving people whenever you see that they are down, we also see the medic character build encampments that are loaded with bandages, health kits, and shields. Furthermore, he tries to build defensive structures to protect other players whenever possible. He even rides around the map on a golf cart to get to those in need as soon as he is able. 

Is this actually a viable strategy? Honestly, you can make the argument it is. Because Fortnite doesn’t emphasize the sniper role quite as much as other battle royale games, there might be more chances to actually survive on the battlefield while you heal your friends. 

Still, it’s pretty clear that this video was made largely for entertainment purposes. Sushii Films makes incredible use of Fortnite’s native Replay Tool to construct a highly-amusing video that not only shows off a fun way to play the game but makes excellent use of Bonnie Tyler’s “Holding Out For a Hero.” There is no shortage of Fortnite replay videos out there, but this has to be one of the most well-produced examples of what you can do using footage from the game.

Whether or not you can rely on more of your teammates to actually help you out because of this video’s existence is another matter entirely.
