How to get a Grappling Hook in Enshrouded

Grapple all over Embervale

When you begin to progress in Enshrouded, you will likely stumble across a bridge that requires a Grappling Hook to get safely over. However, at that point in the game, the Grappling Hook is not a tool you have at your disposal.

Fortunately, you don’t have to wait long to acquire the Grappling Hook. There’s only a couple of steps you have to follow in order to gain access to the tool. You can see what those steps are in the guide below.

Getting the Grappling Hook in Enshrouded

First off, you need to establish a base and place a Flame Altar down. This is your first task within the game and something that you need to do before doing anything else in Enshrouded. Once you have your Flame Altar down and a base established, access the crafting menu and build a standard Workbench. You can also choose to save the Blacksmith survivor and bring him back to your base first so you have more crafting items available.

Either way, after building your Workbench, access its menu and scroll down the menu until you see the “Survival” tab. Under this tab, you’ll see the crafting recipe for the Grappling Hook, which is as follows:

  • x4 Metal Scraps (Acquired by looting enemies or chests)
  • x7 String (Crafted by using Plant Fiber)
  • x10 Shroud Spores (Found as loot on enemies in the Shroud)

With all of these ingredients, you can craft the Grappling Hook at your Workbench and then set it as an active tool on your hotbar. Then, you’re ready to start swinging across open spaces, like the one on the bridge at the beginning of the game.

To use the Grappling Hook, simply approach any spot in Enshrouded that requires the tool, press E/Y once a prompt for the hook pops up, and you’ll swing across the gap in front of you.
