The Grappling Hook is a power skill which fires a hook in front of the player.


  • Special Effects:
    • The hook stops on contact with an enemy or terrain or when it reaches max range, then retracts after a moment.
      • If the hook hits nothing, its cooldown is reduced to 1 second.
    • If the hook hits an enemy, it inflicts 1 base damage. When hit via a melee weapon, enemies snagged by the hook are stunned for 1 second and take additional damage, dependent on the skill's own stats.
    • The hook retracts back toward the player, dragging any attached enemies along with it, but detaches from those that collide with terrain on the way to the player.

  • Forced Affix: Arrow Salvo
    • "Fire a volley of arrows ([7 base] damage per arrow)."


  • Despite scaling with different stats, Grappling Hook works well with Heart of Ice Mutation Icon.png Heart of Ice as it can reliably trigger the mutation.


  • Its flavor text is a reference to Scorpion from the Mortal Kombat series.
  • The blueprint is dropped by Catchers, and it mimics exactly their unique ability.
