Competitive Fortnite Player Shows the Power of the Grappler With Impressive Killing Spree

Fortnite Battle Royale players are continuing to use the new Grappler item to produce some truly spectacular highlights.

KARNAGE Clan’s ‘Billiard’ has now added his name to that list with an impressive killing spree that relied heavily on the improved movement that the Grappler offers.


Billiard found himself caught in an awkward position, surrounded by numerous players and shot at from just about every angle, but decided to get aggressive and grapple his way forwards to take down the first of his first opponent before spinning and flying back in the direction that he came from to pick up a second.

Billiard wasn’t finished there, though. After taking down a third player in quick succession to wipe out one of the opposing squads, his structure was quickly brought down by another attacker, taking away his high ground advantage.


Billiard wasted no time in pulling out the Grappler again and closing down the distance to his attacker in a matter of milliseconds before taking him down as well.

At this point, with the danger passed and all of his would-be attackers eliminated. Billiard summed up his feelings about the new item:

“Grappling hook really [is] the best thing invented”

With the amount of highlight plays and changes to the meta that the Grappler has brought along since its introduction, many Fortnite players would agree with that assessment!


The Grappler was added to the game on September 6 as part of the V5.40 patch. The patch also marked the beginning of the highly anticipated “High Stakes” event in-game.


Where to find Marvel bosses in Fortnite Season 4: Iron Man, Gorger, more

Epic Games has teamed up with Marvel once again in Fortnite Season 4. This time, some of their biggest characters are scattered across the land in the form of bosses. Here’s everything you need to know about where to find them.

It’s a beautiful thing when two worlds collide. Figuratively speaking, of course. But it’s hard to find a pair that has overlapped better than Fortnite and the Marvel Universe. They’re both big, bright, colorful, and rich in lore. And of course, they’re both immensely popular.


It all started when Epic Games launched the Thanos LTM back in April 2018. It’s been a while since then, but the two worlds have crossed over once again, and this time, it’s been a blast.

Galactus, a cosmic being who consumes planets to sustain himself, is planning to wreak havoc on the Fortnite island. As a result, heroes and villains within the Marvel Universe have been popping up all over the place. Some of them are bosses, which players can hunt and eliminate for rewards. But in order to do that, you’ll need to know where to find them.


Here’s what you need to know.

Iron Man

Iron Man might be a fan-favorite hero, but he’s a formidable foe in Fortnite. If you’re willing to take him on to get your hands on his prized possession, a pair of badass rocket gloves, you can find him in Stark Industries. It’s located on the north-east side of the map. But be warned, he’ll put up a hell of a fight.

Gorgers are bigger and more dangerous versions of the Gatherer Drones. Galactus has programmed and sent them with one objective; to create chaos.


However, they don’t have a specific spawn location, which makes them a little harder to find. But if you find and kill the Gorger that can be seen at the start of the match, it will shoot a red beam that leads you right to the boss variants.

Doctor Doom

Doctor Doom is one of the more iconic villains in the Marvel Universe. He’s mostly known as the main antagonist in the Fantastic Four series. However, he’s also tangled with Black Panther, Iron Man, Spider-Man, X Men, and The Avengers many times.

The imposing menace has found a new home at Pleasant Park. The first thing you’ll notice is that it’s been renamed Doom’s Domain.


Next, you’ll notice that he’s recruited a bunch of hostile guards to make your life difficult. But don’t worry too much about them. You can find Doctor Doom walking around Doom House, which is on the northern side of Doom’s Domain.

Bear in mind, though, that as a patrolling character, he will make brief stops in other places in the area. So you might need to look around for a bit before you find him.


If you manage to find him and take him down, he’ll drop some items that will let you use his overpowered abilities as well as a card that lets you access a secret vault.

And with that, you’re ready to rock and roll. The boss fights can be somewhat challenging, but with a bit of time and effort, you’ll persevere.
