Battle from Above: ODM Gear

Fortnite ODM Gear

Retrievable from the ground, Chests, and Scout Regiment Footlockers, put on Omni-Directional Mobility (ODM) Gear. Having this apparatus equipped will give you the ability to grapple in the air and strike opponents below! After attacking with the built-in blades, you’ll immediately boost back into the air so you can grapple elsewhere… or hover and execute another attack.

Think you’ve mastered the ODM Gear? Try knocking down Titan Targets on the Island!

Fight Explosively: Thunder Spears
