Fortnite Lara Croft and Grappler Bow

Epic Games have done several crossovers with popular franchises in Fortnite, and among them was the Tomb Raider series. Here’s everything you need to know about the Lara Croft skin and Grappler Bow.

Fortnite has become known for its crossovers with other popular franchises, as the developers continue to add various skins. This also includes other gaming franchises like Street Fighter.

Lara Croft joined the battle royale in Season 6, and the titular character of the Tomb Raider franchise also came with a Grappler Bow Exotic weapon. However, they’ve both been removed in Season 7.

Initially, Lara Croft was an NPC that you could find while exploring Fortnite Island. She would hang around Stealthy Stronghold, and you could visit her to purchase the Grappler Bow for yourself.

The Exotic weapon would cost about 500 Gold Bars that can be collected through various ways. It would be worth it, as the weapon would let you shoot and fling yourself through the air.

This was useful for both traveling and getting a drop on your enemies. However, both the weapon and the NPC were removed from the game following the Season 7 update.

When is the Grappler Bow returning to Fortnite?

This decision was probably driven by the season theme. Season 6 was titled Primal and had additions like wild animals as well as Velociraptors, which sounds like the kind of environment that the Tomb Raider belongs in.

However, Season 7’s Alien Invasion better suits characters like Superman. Lara will remain available as an in-game skin if you unlocked her in the Season 6 Battle Pass. We currently don’t know if she or the Grappler Bow will make their return.

Hopefully, we might see them again when Season 8 comes around, and we’ll be sure to update you if there are any new developments. Be sure to check out how to get the J Balvin Fortnite ICON series skin.
