SKILL TYPE: Active
REQUIRES: Survival Level 12
The grappling hook is unlocked at survivor level 12 and can be used to quickly travel large distances. Using the grappling hook depletes some of its meter, which recharges over time. There is no hard cooldown unless the player fully exhausts the meter, which will result in the hook being unusable for a few seconds until Crane winds the hook up fully. The meter and recharge rate of the hook are increased once the player reaches survivor level 24.
This skill is particularly helpful in speeding up the player's time in getting from one area of a map to a desired location. It is also useful for escaping hordes of undead, especially from the faster Virals that have the ability to climb structures when giving chase.
The grappling hook can also be used as a weapon to shoot at enemies, however, it is quite weak in that regard.
For the player to use the hook it must be equipped in the equipment slot.
Will cause Bombers to explode on contact.
