Fortnite Battle Royale v18.30 - November 2 Hotfix: Introducing the Icy Grappler

11.2.2021
By The Fortnite Team

The November 2 hotfix for v18.30 shows cold feet doesn’t need to mean no confidence. With the new Icy Grappler, get cold feet to help approach enemies more courageously!


Be Evasive with the Icy Grappler

Some people like to stick the landing. Others like to stay moving after landing. If you’re the latter type, the Icy Grappler is up your alley! Just like the regular Grappler, shoot its suction cup to fling yourself to a solid surface, but here’s the chilly twist: as you begin flying in the air, the Icy Grappler’s frostiness will freeze your feet, causing you to stay moving when you get to your destination.

How’s this slipperiness advantageous? Evade your enemies’ crosshairs as they have a hard time predicting where you’ll end up next. Tip: Aim the Icy Grappler at a hill to make it your slide! 

The Icy Grappler is Exotic — it can be exchanged for Bars from Fabio Sparklemane.
