Epic Games brought the Grapple Glove back for Fortnite OG, and players can get it around the island. Here’s how you can get your hands on the Grapple Glove in Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 5.

Fortnite features a variety of fun mechanics that players can try out, such as the iconic Spider-Man’s Mythic Web Shooters. But even without Spider-Man around for a Fortnite event, players loved the mechanic that allowed them to swing around the map.

Where to find Grapple Glove in Fortnite OG

Fortnite players can only get the Grapple Glove from Rift encounters and Supply Drops in Fortnite OG. Sadly, there’s no way to know for sure where a Rift encounter will appear, so you’ll need to keep your eyes peeled.

On the other hand, players have a 40% chance of finding the Grapple Glove in a Supply Drop, so you might have to open a couple before you get your hands on this sought-after item.

How to use Grapple Glove in Fortnite

The Fortnite Grapple Glove works very similarly to Spider-Man’s Web Shooters, and you can use it to swing through the air. This grants you a quick and fun way to travel across the map and get away from enemy players during battles.

Here’s how you can use it:

  3. Shoot the grappling hook at your target.
  4. Start swinging.

The Grapple Glove has 30 shots to help you travel long distances without touching the ground.

While swinging, you can aim the Grapple Glove to the next surface you want to reach to keep the momentum going. Each Grapple Glove has 30 shots, so keep that in mind when swinging around or escaping opponents. Once you land after a swing, there’ll be a small cooldown period until you can use the Grapple Glove again, so keep that in mind.

Each successive swing that you perform will let you move faster until you gain max speed at the third swing. You can use the Grapple Glove with other movement mechanics like sliding and mantling to your advantage in combat.
