How to Play a Combat Medic in Fortnite

Back in July I saw an amazing video on the Fortnite subreddit. User JyeunJyeun had made a little mock recruitment trailer showcasing his new playstyle, where he exclusively focused on supporting his team in the massive 50v50 shootouts.

(Good timing too, because if you liked his first video, JyeunJyeun’s actually… [Continue Reading]
