How to use the grappling hook in Halo Infinite is something that many are wondering about at the moment as players continue to get familiar with the game for the first time.

For those looking to get the most out of the new special piece of wrist-mounted UNSC equipment, here's a breakdown of how to use the Grappleshot in Halo Infinite.

How to Use the Grappling Hook in Halo Infinite

Among the various offerings of Halo 3-esque equipment in Halo Infinite — game-changing limited-use abilities that players scavenge for during matches — is the Grappleshot.

Let's start off with the basics. In Halo Infinite, the Grappleshot can be picked up and used to move rapidly towards a location or enemy, has a short cooldown time before it can be used again, and has three to five uses before running out of charges in multiplayer.

What's a little less known, however, is that the Grappleshot can be used to retrieve distant items (e.g. a fusion coil, a gravity hammer, a flag) and even latch onto vehicles and hijack them.

Ultimately, the Grappleshot is extremely versatile, and allows players to keep their opponents on the their toes by getting to unorthodox angles at high speeds, especially when sliding at the end of the grapple.

When combined with an Energy Sword or a Mangler, using a grapple can lead to devastating one- and two-shot kills.

At the very least, the Grappleshot can be used to save yourself from falling off the map.
