The new Grappler item is quickly becoming a favorite for many within the Fortnite community since it was recently added via the v5.40 Update. 

One player who seems to be enjoying using the Grappler a lot is popular Twitch streamer Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins, who has seemingly already mastered the item.

The Fortnite extraordinaire displayed his mastery by using the item to relentlessly chase down and eliminate an enemy player in Fortnite and secure yet another Victory Royale.

The control Ninja maintains of the Grappler throughout the sequence is rather impressive as he manages to pull off five consecutive grapples without touching the ground.

Once he got close enough to the enemy player, almost everyone knew what was going to happen, as it then simply became a case of Ninja outgunning his opponents, which he usually always does. 

The player ended up being Ninja’s final opponent in that match, which made the Victory Royale the icing on the cake.

Many, like Ninja, are using the new Grappler to pull of impressive eliminations, dashing and daring escapes from tight situations, or even to freely swing across the Fortnite map. 

Coincidentally (or not), the Grappler was added in Fortnite less than a day before the highly anticipated Spider-Man video game was set to be released, which has led many to compare the new item’s mechanics to that of the Marvel superhero in-game.

Even Ninja used the caption “New Spiderman game is SICK” when posting the clip above on Twitter.


Fortnite Baba Yaga skin release date leaked

The release date of Fortnite’s Baba Yaga skin has been leaked ahead of time, and it’s not all that too far away.

With Halloween being just around the corner, Epic Games have activated their annual Fortnitemares celebrations. The yearly event has brought changes to the battle royale island, as well as the ability to play as a shadow while your teammate is still alive in a match. 

Though given its Halloween, and players want to dress in new skins, the devs have brought back some classic looks – including the Skull Trooper – while also releasing some brand new cosmetics like Party Trooper and the Bone Squad.

Yet, one of the spookiest skins, Baba Yaga, is still yet to hit the Item Shop. The skin takes its name and look from the classic eastern European folk tale about a terrifying-looking old woman.

The skin was leaked prior to the recent Fortnitemares update by a number of data miners, though, the wait has been on ever since, with players hoping to see it in the Item Shop.

Well, that wait isn’t going to last all that much longer, as leaker ShiinaBR posted that, according to their reliable source, it will be available as a part of the Item Shop rotation on Monday, October 26. 

In the leaks, the skin is labeled as being ‘Rare’ so, it should set you back around between 1200 and 1600 V Bucks. 

Obviously, while Shiina has posted tonnes of reliable information in the past, the final say, of course, goes to Epic Games and they could very well change their mind and put a different skin in the Item Shop.

That might seem like a bit of an extreme move, changing dates just because one has been leaked, but there are plenty of skins that have been leaked in the past that are still nowhere to be seen.
