Fortnite: This is the Grab-Itron, the new weapon added in Patch 17.30 that you can get VERY easily

Epic Games has gotten more playful with the Season 7 finale, adding a new weapon that can turn the game's meta upside down. Here's all you need to know about the Grab-Itron.

Fortnite: This is the Grab-Itron, the new weapon added in Patch 17.30 that you can get VERY easily

The final fireworks of Fortnite Season 7 is worthy of admiration, since few previous seasons have received the care and attention that this one is getting. Now, a new weapon seems like it could shake things up entirely.

The Grab-Itron gravity gun, from the moment we see its trailer, appears to be one of the most powerful weapons we have seen in recent weeks. It is capable of controlling, for example, an already-launched projectile and smashing it against another group of enemies. Sounds wild, right?

This weapon is undoubtedly going to cause real terror on the battlefield, precisely because it can turn the tide of a confrontation with great ease.

Best of all, to get the Grab-Itron all you have to do is get lucky in chests. You can also find it on top of Abductors, or in the alien Mothership.

This is what Epic Games itself has to say about the Grab-Itron:

Sometimes called a “UFO in your hands” by the IO or a “portable ordinary aircraft” by the Aliens, you can use this weapon to pull in objects that are in front of you. (This one’s a doozy.) Pull in an object with its flying disc, take it along with you, then launch it at an opponent. How much damage it deals depends on how big it is, what it’s made of, and its launch speed. 

The Grab-itron isn’t only for offense. If you have an object pulled in, that object will block damage coming from in front of you — until it can endure damage no longer. Also: try using the Grab-itron to catch incoming explosives and propel them back. Grab-itrons can be found in Chests, on top of Abductors, and inside the Mothership.
