Dying Light 2: How to Get the Grappling Hook

The same brilliant parkour gameplay that has always made Techland’s open-world games is back in full force for its latest sequel, but there are also a couple of cool new additions to traversal that make it even more fun to control. Here’s how to get the grappling hook in Dying Light 2 if you’re unsure how long it takes before you can swing from rooftop to rooftop.

While the grappling hook was showcased in many of the pre-launch gameplay presentations for Dying Light 2, it actually isn’t something you can acquire until quite a while through the game, toward the later stages of its main storyline.

After you have reached the Central Loop region of the game, which is the larger of the two sandbox maps, you’ll begin working with the Peacekeepers, who will eventually communicate their plans to power up the radio tower at the very top of the city’s talent building: the VNC Tower and bring it online.

It is during your ascent up the VNC Tower that you begin liaising with Frank, a former leader of the Nightrunners. He’ll (reluctantly) direct you to some former Nightrunner equipment to help in your mission up the tower, which includes the grappling hook.

How to Use the Grappling Hook in Dying Light 2

The grappling hook is pretty simple to use. Follow these steps:

  1. Open your inventory menu and equip the item to your quick menu.

  2. You will now notice that as you look at different objects around the area, there is a small circle that appears.

    This is your grappling target. All you need to do now is press L2/LT to shoot the grappling hook. You’ll then be able to swing backward and forward to reach further distances than a jump will allow.
