Epic Games surprised fans in many ways with the release of the last season. Not only did the season bring us cool new collaboration skins such as Darth Vader and Indiana Jones, it also gave us the Grapple Glove which work similarly to the Spider-Man web-shooters which have been in the game before.

The Grapple Gloves, unfortunately, disappeared with the start of Chapter 3, Season 4, which greatly disappointed the community as the item had quickly become a fan favorite. Thankfully to the recent patch 22.10, the item is back on the island! And we'll show you where to find the Grapple Glove.

What Can The Grapple Glove Do In Fortnite?

Season 4's Grapple Glove actually works the same way as Spider-Man's web-shooters. Aside from the difference in appearance, the functionality of the item is exactly the same. To begin swinging, shoot its grappling hook at a hard surface like a cliff, prop, or building. Each successive swing gets faster until the third swing and beyond, when you’ll be at max speed. If you miss a shot and land on the ground, you’ll have a brief window of time to shoot the grappling hook and come back swinging.

You'll have an even longer window if you slide out of a swing, so don't be afraid to combo some slides into your swinging action! Besides swinging, you can also use the Grapple Glove to pull items towards you!

The Grapple Glove will have 30 charges in casual playlists and ten in competitive playlists. Once you've used these charges up the Grapple Glove will be useless, so use each charge sparingly.

It's actually relatively easy to get the gloves. Unlike in Chapter 3 Season 3, Grapple Gloves aren’t stored in Grapple Glove Toolboxes. This time, they can be found from the ground, Chests, Supply Drops, and Legendary and Mythic Reality Sapling Fruit.

So all it takes is a little luck to find a Grapple Glove. But if you search a bit, you should find it quickly.
