Clinger (Battle Royale)
|Category||Battle Royale Items|
Clinger was an Battle Royale that sticks to whatever it touches, including players. This grenade cannot explode in the air. After patch 5.30, the grenade would no longer detonate early, if the structure to which the Clinger is attached is destroyed. Instead, they will be affected by gravity and fall until they stick to another object or their fuse expires. Clingers did drop in stacks of 3 with a maximum stack size of 6, and could be found in Chests, Supply Llamas, Supply Drops and Vending Machines.explosive weapon in

Clinger has a chance to appear among all utility items and consumables in the following circumstances:
- The Clinger is very effective at close range. Once it sticks on an opponent, there is no way for him/her to remove it, and he/she will be most likely doomed to be eliminated or KO'd, due to the Clinger dealing massive damage to its target. Even if the player misses, he/she can still lure an opponent to the Clinger as it explodes.
- Conversely, if a player is hit by a Clinger, he/she can bring down opponents with him/her by running right near them just before it explodes. Players who successfully stick a Clinger need to stay away from their target to avoid getting blown up themselves.
- This is one of the six items that has been vaulted first, then unvaulted and then getting vaulted again, The other items are the Guided Missile, Suppressed Submachine Gun, Impulse Grenade, Dual Pistols and Semi-Auto Sniper Rifle.
- This is the fourth item to be unvaulted, following the Suppressed Submachine Gun.
