What Gadgets Can You Use in Just Cause 4?

Rico, the main protagonist of Just Cause series have access to powerful gadgets that allows him to perform amazing actions in and out of battle. Learning how to use these gadgets will not only allow you to traverse around faster, but will open new ways to take down your enemies in unique and effective ways.

Grappling Hook

Grappling Hook

Grappling Hook Have Upgrade & Customization

During his adventure, Rico will be able to earn 3 unique upgrades for his Grappling Hook: Air Lifter - a powerful balloon to pull anything it attaches into the air, Retractor - a powerful motorized tether to pull anything it attaches to with extreme force, and Boost - a micro jet engine propelling anything it attaches to with extreme force.



Rico's signature retractable parachute will allow him to survive even the most highest of falls and allows him to glide across the landscape. Using the Parachute together with the Grappling Hook allows Rico to propel and stay up in the air for extended amount of time.



Rico's specially designed suit allows him to become a human glider; allowing him to fly across long distances and tight areas where other aircrafts would not be able to fly. Using the Wingsuit alongside Parachute and Grappling Hook can allow Rico to fly around the map with remarkable speed.
