Fortnite’s v17.30 update has introduced the brand-new Grab-itron item, a gravity gun that can throw objects at enemies. Here’s how you can get your hands on this powerful new weapon.
The headline addition in the patch though is the Grab-itron item, which first appeared in the game’s Season 7 Battle Pass trailer. Since then, players have been anxiously awaiting its arrival, but as each week passed, it never appeared. Finally, that’s all changed, and here’s how you can add it to your inventory during matches.
Where to find the Grab-itron
According to Epic Games, the Grab-itron can be found in three spots: in Chests, on top of Abductors, and inside the Mothership.
Unfortunately, finding them inside of Chests will rely on some luck, as you can never guarantee what loot you will get when you open one. Thankfully, the other two methods should guarantee you the item, although you may have to fight other players who have the same idea.
Finding Abductors is easy. When you jump into a game, simply open your map and you will see three Abductors marked on your map. Where they appear is different in every map, but they always spawn above named POIs. You’ll need to land on top of one to get the Grab-itron, so landing there early is your best bet.
These Abductors can also beam you inside the Mothership, which will also have Grab-itrons inside.
How to use the Grab-itron in Fortnite
The Grab-itron is essentially a gravity gun. Sometimes called a “UFO in your hands” according to Epic, players can use this weapon to lift and pull objects around them.
“Pull in an object with its flying disc, take it along with you, then launch it at an opponent,” writes the game’s developers, confirming that the damage the enemy takes depends on how big the item is and what it’s made of. Players will also be able to use these items to block incoming damage, although they will eventually break.
The Grab-itron is available in Fortnite right now, so jump into a game and get your hands on one for yourself to test its true power.
