Fortnite is arguably the most popular video game in the world right now, and as a result, it is inspiring a lot of creative content from fans. This includes a National Geographic nature documentary-style parody video put together by YouTuber Sonny Evans, who documents the “creatures” of Fortnite.
While the video is a parody, it still highlights some of the different ways people actually play Fortnite. For example, one part of the video follows around an “Architect,” which is a player that focuses on building elaborate structures more than engaging enemy players in combat.
The video also highlights “Bush Campers,” who work together with teammates to lure unsuspecting players into a trap. The Bush Campers hide in their bushes, wait for the enemies to be drawn out in the open, and then fires at them from afar, racking up a decent number of kills in the process.
The Fortnite nature documentary also spends some time with “Noob” players, including a kid who used his mom’s credit card to purchase the Battle Pass and John Wick skin. Noob players, according to the documentary, have a tendency to jump on the game’s bouncing tires and rush into firefights instead of taking their time to formulate a strategy.
Those inspired by Sonny Evans’s nature documentary parody video should note that they have the tools to create a similar video themselves. As it turns out, Sonny put together his video using the cinematic replay editor that was added to Fortnite in a recent patch, and his work shows that the replay editor can be quite useful for content creators.
Anyone who enjoyed Sonny Evans’s work may want to keep an eye on his channel moving forward. He has put together some other National Geographic nature documentary-style videos focused on other video games, including Grand Theft Auto 5, PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds, Far Cry 5, and more. However, if his Fortnite video keeps racking up views, it’s possible he will focus more on the increasingly popular battle royale game instead.
Fortnite is available now in early access on iOS mobile devices, PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
