How Does the Fortnite Grapple Gun Work?

Added to the game recently, the Fortnite grapple gun is an excellent way of getting around the map. It can be used to get around quickly or get you high in the sky. If you have a ranged weapon, it can get you into a good area for a shot in seconds. You can get it from one of ten spots around the map or from killing enemies holding it.

You can find one grapple gun at any of the following spots:

  • Northwest of Logjam Lumberyard
  • East of Shifty Shafts
  • Northeast of The Daily Bugle
  • Rave Cave
  • Northeast of Tilted Towers
  • The Islands on the east of the map
  • North of Rocky Reels
  • Southwest of Greasy Grove
  • Southeast of Joneses
  • Northeast of Synapse Station
