Here’s how you can get the new Tow Hook Cannon weapon in Fortnite!

The Fortnite v30.10 update has finally welcomed Metallica into the game. This collaboration includes a new Fortnite Festival Pass, a Metallica concert, skins, and more. In addition to the Metallica crossover, Epic Games welcomed the Tow Hook Cannon, which appeared in the Chapter 5 Season 3, into the loot pool. This article explains how you can get the Tow Hook Cannon in Fortnite and what it does.

How to get the Tow Hook Cannon in Fortnite

The Tow Hook Cannon is an easy weapon to find. It spawns in Chests, on the ground, and in Supply Drones. We entered a Team Rumble match and found it at a named point of interest (POI). Since it's the "Rare" rarity, you should find it without any issue. It occupies one inventory slot like any weapon, so you may have to make room if your inventory is full.

What does the new Hook weapon do?

Fortnite's Tow Hook Cannon is different from other weapons you would normally find. Although you can use it as a weapon, the most interesting aspect is the ability to attach yourself to vehicles. As you can see in the video above, you can grapple onto a car, and the car will pull you.

It reaches up to 50 meters and is an easy way to hitch a ride across the map. However, an enemy could jump out of the vehicle and attack, so keep that in mind.

Here are the stats for the Tow Hook Cannon per HYPEX:

  • Range: 50 meters
  • Player Damage: 75
  • Builds Damage: 200
  • Vehicles Damage: 300
  • Attaches you to moving vehicles & you can detach

Overall, the Tow Hook Cannon is a fun addition to this car-heavy Fortnite season, and it's definitely worth trying out. It's not overpowered but rather more of an interesting, gimmicky item that can spice up your matches.
