Last Adjustment Patch 11.20

The Harpoon Gun is a Rare utility item and weapon in Battle Royale. It has a headshot multiplier of 2x and uses Hooks as ammo. It is good for close to medium ranges, but is ineffective at longer ranges, as it won't reach the target. It can be used to "yoink" players to the user's position, including teammates. The Harpoon Gun can also be used for rapid fishing, but only in fishing spots. It uses Hooks.

The Harpoon Gun has been added to the Creative inventory on Patch 11.20.
