How to Get the Grappler Bow in Fortnite Season 7

Obtaining the Grappler Bow in Fortnite Season 6 is actually easier than many might believe. While it is still a process, that's more because of the time it takes to get the Grappler Bow rather than the number of steps.

The Grappler Bow's only known location so far is toward the top left corner of the map in the Stealthy Stronghold named location. Once players arrive there they will need to find the Laura Croft NPC from the Tomb Raider video games series. Her NPC typically is found around the jungle ruins located around the center of Stealthy Stronghold.

Once players find her they'll to interact with her to pull up a menu where they can then the buy the Grappler Bow. Unfortunately, players will first need to rack up gold as the Grappler Bow costs an expensive 500 gold bars. Players should also be careful when they choose to buy it as it will have to be repurchased each game and does not carry over.

For those unaware of how to collect gold bars in Fortnite it's pretty simple. Players can obtain gold bars from floor loot, by opening chests, or by killing players. Some NPCs will even offer players bounties or players can pick a bounty from a Bounty Board, completing either will net players gold bars. Still, getting 500 gold bars is no quick feat, so players will need to have patience in order to obtain the Grappler Bow.
