Epic Games has added a new mobility tool that allows players to swing around the map and slide into battle. Here is where you can find the new Icy Grappler in Fortnite Season 8.

Fortnite has slowly added new content week by week over the course of Season 8. New characters have appeared on the island, and each week features new items.

Some items are voted on by players and are added as soon as the vote ends. Other mythic items are included in the weekly updates. These items often have special abilities that add fun elements to gameplay.

That’s the case for Fortnite’s new Icy Grappler. With this new utility, players can traverse the map like a web-slinging superhero. However, your feet will be colder afterward and you might have trouble sticking the landing.

However, players can’t buy the Icy Grappler yet. Epic Games added the new weapon to Fortnite’s files after the v18.30 update. Fortnite will release the Icy Grappler officially at a later date.

How to use the Icy Grappler

Fortnite’s new Icy Grappler is a mix of the Classic Grappler and the Freeze Trap. Players can use it to traverse the map or gain high ground. However, this increased mobility comes at a cost.

When a player uses the Icy Grappler, their feet will be encased in ice blocks. This will make players slide when they land and will make their movement slippery. But moving at full speed after using the Icy Grappler could work in the player’s favor.

The Fortnite Crew Pack skins for September, October, and November are a trio of Midas’ agents, and they all come with a secret bonus style.

Midas has found a way to stay relevant throughout most of Fortnite Chapter 2. He debuted in Chapter 2 Season 2, and has been very popular ever since. Epic Games has even released multiple interactions of his skin.

However, the handsome golden boy has come with his fair share of lore. This lore has even been expanded to the first three agents to join Midas’ cause. These skins have been given to Crew Pack members during September, October, and November of 2021.

The three agents are referred to as Midas’ First Enforcer, First Redeemed, and First Pardoned. They each come with their own set of items, but players can also unlock their secret bonus styles.

This is important to note because of the way players will unlock the Sept., Oct., and Nov. Fortnite Crew Pack bonus styles. In order to unlock them, players will need to own all three skins. If a player has all three skins in their locker, they will automatically unlock the bonus styles.

Here are the three skins you will need to unlock the bonus styles:

  • Burning Wolf Skin – Subscribe to Fortnite Crew during September 2021
  • Choas Origin Skin – Subscribe to Fortnite Crew during October 2021
  • Sierra Skin – Subscribe to Fortnite Crew during November 2021

Sadly, this means if you missed a month, you can’t redeem the bonus style. These Fortnite Crew bonus styles are prestigious cosmetics that players will likely wear to flex on other players. However, the base skins aren’t the most popular as of now.

The Fortnite Season 8 secret Battle Pass skin has been revealed, and here is how to get the Cube Queen skin in Fortnite.

Fortnite has made a tradition each season of withholding one of the skins included in the Battle Pass. Sometimes Epic Games will reveal the skin early. Other times, it will keep the skin’s design a secret.

For Season 8, Fortnite only gave players a silhouette of the skin to start. During the trailer for the Fortnitemares 2021 event, Fortnite revealed the Cube Queen skin.

While the Cube Queen is a part of the Season 8 Battle Pass, players can’t unlock it just by leveling up. Like every other secret skin, the Cube Queen has special unlock criteria.
