The Tow Hook Cannon in Fortnite Chapter 5 Season 3 is intended to be a counter to vehicles in the game, so here’s how you can get it.

Apart from the Metallica-themed content, the Fortnite 30.10 update introduced a brand-new weapon in the form of the Tow Hook Cannon.

This weapon is a grappling hook but will help you latch onto vehicles that zip around on the island, giving you an opportunity to damage and potentially steal them for yourself.

Here’s where you can find the Tow Hook Cannon in Fortnite.

Tow Hook cannon use
Using a Tow Hook Cannon is like using any other weapon in the game.

This weapon fires a hook-like projectile, which attaches to a vehicle and pulls you along with it. While you’re attached to the vehicle, you can fire your weapons and damage enemies easily.

There’s also an option to detach yourself from the vehicle you’re attached to if you’re taking a lot of damage and need to head into cover.

That is everything you need to know about the Fortnite Tow Hook Cannon in Chapter 5 Season 3. As you explore the island after the 30.10 update, you’ll also come across the Fortnite Ride the Lightning Mythic guitar, and the teasers for the upcoming Marvel season.
