Note: Zoya’s “Rope” is called a Grapple Hook here, to save confusion with other types of rope.
The Grapple Hook (or Grappling Hook) is a piece of equipment used by Zoya the Thief.
It is a long Rope that Zoya can throw and attach to some wooden surfaces.
The Grapple Hook will not attach to metal, rock, stone or trees, unless there is a wooden plank or beam fixed to them. Zoya cannot throw the Grapple Hook downwards or horizontally but only upwards.
Zoya can climb up or down the Rope when she is hanging from the Grapple Hook. She is also able to swing backwards and forwards building up momentum to swing and jump a great distance. When hanging below a platform etc. she is able to swing herself up onto the platform etc. this is one of the most useful purposes for the Grapple Hook. She can also “multi grapple”, which means that she can throw the Grapple Hook when she is already hanging or swinging from it, this will allow her to use multiple swinging jumps along an extensive bridge for example.
Zoya is sometimes able to save herself when she is falling by using the Grapple Hook but only if there is a wooden surface above that she can quickly attach it to.
The Grapple Hook can be used as a "weapon", if Zoya swings into a Skeleton with some speed it will be injured or killed.
