The Scout using the Grappling Hook

The Grappling Hook is a default action item for all classes. It can be used to move yourself from one location to the next in the Mannpower game mode. Additionally, it negates fall damage after use, and deals 1 point of damage, or 2 points if the hit is a headshot. Spies can also use the grapple hook when disguised or invisible.
