The Fortnite Grapple Glider is what it sounds like, a Grappler mixed with a Glider. The Grapple Glider functions like a regular Grappler, except upon gaining enough height, users get a prompt to redeploy their Glider. Those familiar with Jules' Glider Gun and Batman Grapnel Gun will find that the Grapple Glider behaves in a near-identical manner.

As for stats, the Fortnite Grapple Glider sports the following:

  • Fire Rate: 1
  • Magazine Size: 10
  • Reload Time: 1.26s

An obvious use for the Grapple Glider is escaping sticky situations and rotating with haste, but it's also a very effective tool for build fights. Lose the high ground to your opponent? Use the Grapple Glider to pull yourself up to their level when they least expect it.

Furthermore, the Grapple Glider can save your life when the structures beneath you come crashing down. With some quick reflexes, you can use the Fortnite Grapple Glider to latch onto a sturdy surface and then whip out your Glider to avoid fall damage.

With the Grapple Glider, navigating the Island has never been so smooth. Find yourself a Grapple Glider today by searching Floor Loot, Chests, Chrome Chests, Supply Drops, and Supply Llamas.

If you still need Account Levels to unlock the Fortnite Chrome Punk Skin, there is a Week 9 Quest to glide 250 metres with the Grapple Glider in one shot.
