The very last grapple mod you're going to need! Infinite ammo and durability! Faster! And no grapple bug!


What It Does
Provides a new crossbow (Grapple XBow) used solely for grappling. It has a configurable length, pull, and drop speed. It has unlimited ammo and shoots faster. Furthermore, it is immune to the "grapple bug".

  • Clean and completely stackable.
  • Grapple XBow has unlimited durability.
  • Unlimited grapple ammo.
  • Configurable max rope length.
  • Configurable pull speed / strength. Set this high enough, pull yourself to the ground, and kill yourself, parachute be damned! :D
  • Configurable drop speed. For those who want a little more granual control of how far you drop with a click of the right-mouse button!

The Grapple Bug / Glitch
One of the most annoying issues with most other infinite-ammo, fast-action grapple guns or crossbows came when it was accidentally (or due to lag) shot twice in quick succession. This, at first, would cause no issue. However, if the shooter were to get on a dino and rode far enough away from where the grapple hit (usually render distance), their screen would immediately start "jumping" back and forth, as if being pulled by the grapple. Hitting "C" would provide immediate relief, but the bug would re-appear the next time they got off their dino far enough away from the grapple. One available, more permanent solution was to use beds to teleport from one place to another (usually two beds side by side). This would clear the glitch. At least until they shot the grapple twice in quick succession again.

RopeLength :: Float. Multiplies the default rope length. Default is 1.0.
PullSpeed :: Float. Multiplies the default pull speed / force. Beware! Set this too high and it WILL kill you when pulling down.. Default is 1.0. About 1.5 - 2.0 is nice.
DropSpeed :: Float. Multiplies the default drop speed. Default is 1.0. I like 0.5.
GrappleSpeed :: Float. Multiplies the default speed of the grapple projectile. Default is 1.0. I like 1.5.
[LastGrapple] RopeLength=1.5 PullSpeed=1.5 DropSpeed=0.5 GrappleSpeed=2.5

Is this module still available? Will it collapse?

Best reusable grapple mod for all various types of servers! Easy, clean mod to install and remove.

@Hambo this is something I think is definitely worth adding, but I don't currently have the space to re-install the ark modding toolkit. It's really heavy on resources. I'm waiting until I have a new machine to get back into modding. In the meantime, all files are available in my github repo for anyone to modify them as they see fit. I will try to make it configurable in the future.

Can we get a version with normal durability? If I had to maintain it It'd feel more part of the game and less like a god tool. It's so much fun in caves!

Is there anyway to have the controller's crouch button also detach?
Currently keyboard crouch button works but controller's default does not

Will this work for extinction?

Could you maybe double the range on this thing? There are certain area's that point out that the reel distance of this grappling hook truly is pathetic. (Central area of Ragnarok with all the crazy pillar formations and deep river valleys.) That or some sort of indication of when the grapple is in range would be super nice.
