Fortnite has been foremost when it comes to introducing new and engaging content for the players. Although the current season in the game was off to a rocky start, the devs at Epic Games were able to bring things back to speed with the 16.10 update patch. This one introduced some major tweaks in the gameplay that the community has been asking for quite a while now. This is one of the things that has ensured that the game still has a loyal fanbase, although Fortnite is one of the oldest titles of its kind.

Like we already mentioned, the Grappler Bow can only be found in the inventory of Lara Croft. Now, the Lara Croft NPC lives at the Stealthy Stronghold. You can trade this weapon from her for 500 Gold Bars. However, this does not indefinitely grant you this weapon. If you want it, you will have to buy it from her again in the next match.

Now, why are people calling this weapon broken? The reason is that this bow deals a count of 89 damage or hit. However, it only takes a second to reload. This damage to reload speed ratio makes this one of the deadliest weapons in the game right now.

But the more interesting power lies in the “Grappler” portion of its abilities. Once an arrow from this bow hits a target, it will pull you towards it, like a grappling gun. So, you can use it to easily scale buildings, builds, and more!
