– Imperial Advert for the Grapnel Launcher

A Grapnel Launcher is an Imperial device that uses an explosive charge to fire a grapnel hook and its accompanying filament over long distances. A Grapnel Launcher is used to scale vast heights and cross from building to building in dense urban areas. It is a piece of equipment commonly employed by the close combat stealth assault Reiver Squads of the Primaris Space Marines, who always need to be in exactly the right place at exactly the right time, ready to burst forth from their stealthy approach and attack their foe when they least expect it.

In crunch terms, a Grapnel Launcher acts more as a piece of equipment than a weapon of war which has made some in /tg/ be a bit disappointed that they couldn't yell "Get Over Here!" for shits and giggles.

When played, any models with a grapnel launchers do not count any vertical distance they move against the total they can move that turn (i.e. moving vertically is free for these models). That's of course, if they move. In addition, during deployment, you can set up this unit, if it is equipped with grapnel launchers, behind enemy lines instead of placing it on the battlefield which makes it some form of deep strike. At the end of any of your Movement phases this unit can join the battle – set it up within 6" of a battlefield edge of your choice and more than 9" away from any enemy models. Yay for the return of Outflank!
