The Grappler is an item players can use in Fortnite: Battle Royale.

It was added in patch 5.40 with the introduction of the High Stakes game mode in Season 5 and was vaulted in the 7.21 Content Update, due to its ability to retake high ground with minimal effort. It is later unvaulted in Chapter 2 - Season 2 as a special Mythic item by killing Skye in The Shark.

It is also available in Creative mode.
