How to use the Icy Grappler in Fortnite

The normal Grappler in Fortnite allows you to zoom around the map and reach higher areas by pressing the ‘fire’ trigger. The Icy Grappler works similarly but also provides you with a Frozen Feet effect.

This reduces your maneuverability and makes it harder for you to turn while also boosting your movement speed so that you can get around quicker. The effect will last for approximately 30 seconds and can be canceled by entering a body of water or getting knocked down.

You can’t use the Icy Grappler in competitive playlists, but it’s still a fun Exotic weapon to use, so be sure to get it for yourself the next time you hop into a game of Fortnite.
