The new Icy Grappler has been added to Fortnite in the v18.30 hotfix. Here's where to find it and how to get the most out of it.
A new hotfix was added for Fortnite on Nov. 2. This fix is for the recent v18.30 update which saw the addition of a new POI, new war effors, and the Cube Queen outfit. It was also hinted that some new weapons would be making their way into the Battle Royale. Now, the Icy Grappler has arrived and is ready for players to inject a bit of chill into their arsenal.
So, where can players find the Icy Grappler? And how do you use it?
Where to Find the Icy Grappler in Fortnite
Fortunately, the Icy Grappler will be fairly easy to find. You'll need to head on over to Apres Ski, a lodge which contains a bar and a dancefloor - arguably the deadliest combo around. In order to get your hands on the Exotic Icy Grappler, you'll need to hand over 400 Gold Bars to the NPC Fabio Sparklemane.
If you're short on bars, be sure to check the surrounding chests, and cash registers, and ATMs. Players can also earn Gold Bars by completing bounties from the Bounty Boards located around the map.
How to Use the Icy Grappler in Fortnite
The Icy Grappler isn't much of an offensive weapon. Rather, it's best used as a means for mobility. It's a great way to get around quickly and gain some height. Be warned though, using the Icy Grappler will encase your feet in ice. This means that when you land, you'll be sliding around on the ground. This, too, can come in handy. It's perfect for a quick getaway when you find yourself in the company of an enemy. Using it on a hill will certainly turn the battle field into your playground.
For those who'd rather land in one place, the original Grappler has also been unvaulted. This version of the weapon can be found in chests and supply drops, so keep an eye out when looting.
