Grappling Hooks are Special Items that grab and pull the opponents mech toward you, dealing a small amount of damage in the process.
The Grappling Hook slot is unlocked at Level 5. Most Grappling Hooks can be bought in the Shop for Credits or Tokens. Legendary and Mythical grappling hooks can only be found in Item Boxes. Only one grappling hook may be equipped per mech. The user may also choose to leave the grappling hook spot blank.
On the Battlefield, the option to activate the grappling hook is found on the lower HUD, in the Specials sub-menu. All grappling hooks can only be used once - except for the mythical series, which can be activated twice. The amount of uses a grappling hook has only applies to one battle - it will replenish when a new battle starts.
When the user selects the grappling hook button, a large hook replaces the weapons on the far side of the users mech momentarily. The hook will then grab and pull the enemy towards it, until the enemy mech is at a range of one. A small amount of damage is also dealt, along with some heat or energy damage, depending on the grappling hook.
