For the Grappling Hook you need:

  • Metal Scraps x 4
  • String x 7
  • Shroud Spores x 10

If you’re having trouble finding Metal Scraps, check out our guide. Once you’ve unlocked the Blacksmith in one of the first missions, he points out a spot on the map where you can find a bunch of the material. It’s a level three spot and requires clearing out a fair few enemies, but it’s worth it if you’re running short on the item. Shroud Spores are easy to come by, usually found by defeating enemies in the shroud, of which there are plenty.

Now you’ve found the Enshrouded grappling hook, here are all the Shroud Core locations in Enshrouded, as well as how to repair weapons in Enshrouded so you can head out time and time again.
