Epic has quietly updated Fortnite to the new version.
Fortnite has been undergoing content updates for a while now. These are server-side patches, so you don’t need to download anything extra. Such updates do not get additional 18.30.1 markings.
This time the update introduced a new weapon. This one will not be any special surprise, because it is about “Icy Grappler”.
A new weapon in Fortnite
The official description of this update mainly describes the new version of the weapon:
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.
And for those who appreciate landings – the usual Grappler has returned to the game. The Classic variant can be found in Chests and Supply Drops. It is also worth mentioning that Icy Grappler and Normal one are not available in the ranked modes.
