The Bat-grappling gun is a fictional item featured in the Batman multimedia franchise. It is considered a major asset in Batman's crime-fighting arsenal, but really only came into prominence with the 1992 cartoon program, Batman: The Animated Series. Since then, it has come to be regarded a common tool of the character. The gun fires a grappling hook attached to a long, tense cord, or batline, that enables Batman to swing from rooftop to rooftop.
Examples of use Edit
While James Gordon was arrested under the false charges of accepting bribes from Rupert Thorne, Batman climbed to the top of a building across the street from the Gotham City Jail and used the grappling gun to fire a communication device through the bars of Gordon's window so that he could talk to him.
