Fortnite Season 5 to Add a Grappling Hook

It's possible that at the beginning of Fortnite Season 5, we'll be seeing pirates in the game as assets for pirates have been added to the game files before any other theme. With it, comes the possibility of the grappling hook also making it to the game. Of course, pirates didn't have grappling hooks attached to weapons, but it's likely that Epic Games will be putting their own spin on this pirate weapon.
