The Fortnite v17.30 update was released in the early hours of the morning on 3rd August 2021, as Epic Games gets ready for the massive Rift Tour event. Some bugs were also fixed, and the developers finally unleashed the Grab-Itron gun. Here's everything we know so far about the Fortnite Grab-Itron gun, from its stats to how it works, the first gameplay, and how you can get one.
Fortnite Grab-Itron gun stats and gameplay
Teased earlier in Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 7, the gravity gun was first called the "Cowinator" by fans and leakers. However, the official name is Grab-Itron. Anyone who's played a Half-Life game will likely jump with joy.
Let's just get straight to it, shall we? The Grab-Itron allows players to pick up objects and throw them at enemies, or structures. The bigger the object, the more damage it will deal, and it depends a bit on object material as well.
Basically, throwing a vehicle will deal a lot of damage, but you cannot throw it as far and with as much speed as, for example, a kitchen sink...
As you can see, the stats for Fortnite's Grab-Itron is quite barebones, since it depends on what type of object you pick up. You can press the Reload button to rotate the object.
