    I love it.  It serves a similar function to ender pearls, but is less powerful because of the distance limit.  It would be great for caving or building when you just have to get up a few blocks.

    I would say that since the crossbow is out the normal bow will loose popularity. Which is why I believe they should make the grappling hook with a bow, lead and an arrow.

    After you’ve thrown it would you be teleported there or would it function as a ladder? I’d prefer it as a quickly placed ladder, it’s more realistic

    Yeah! The animation should be similar to throwing a trident, but it should look like a fishing rod...Enchantment: Grip (Max level 3) add 10 block for every level you add! I think it should not hang on to semi-solid or translucent blocks.. imo

    This is awesome. This would be easier to get than ender pearls AND wouldn't do damage! This would be a good addition

    It needs more uses. Maybe 200 or 300.

    This. We should be able to climb it like a ladder and maybe even swing across gaps with it. Comes with its own fair amount of risk in use too, so it would be game-breaking.

    You can swing and use it to pull items and entities.

    As a climber, I really love the idea of descending from the Nether ceiling into a fortress using a rope. However I would not limit ropes to 16 blocks, at least if you intend to use it to lower yourself like a speleologist.

    Hanging from a very long rope, maybe even swinging, would be a very interesting experience, but descending a rope is a serious thing, you need brake or you'll hurt yourself very quickly. A braking device would be useful to avoid damages. Such device could be made from two tripwire hooks plus a string. Tripwire hooks have rings which could be recycled.

    Perhaps ropes could be crafted from items different from strings, to make things more interesting. For example, from palm leaves, if palm trees are confirmed, or bamboo.

    If you were to exchange the strings for a lead, this might be a less OP item, giving the player a slightly more difficult time to construct sed item and i would imagine it would function like throwing a trident, then you simply hold jump to climb towards the pick or hold shift to lower yourself down a casm. 

    Edit: as described by: Aethalia66 , the recipe should be an iron/diamond pickaxe, 1 lead and 2 tripwire hooks to seem more realistic. 

    It should also should be able to be repaired by string.

    This would be spectacular, especially with the new Nether and mountain updates, it would make exploring the three dimensional terrain of the nether and the improved mountains easier and much more interesting than just building staircases all day long

    I love this idea. It would definitely add to the whole Indiana Jones vibe of exploring deep caverns. I'd love the feeling of this being added along with the holdable torches.

     

    Too cool.

    This is an amazing idea! But I agree with another person who commented that it should be used with the normal bow with the lead and arrow

    This is a pretty great idea, but why does it need a cool-down? Also, instead of the weird sixteen block rule, what if it were to act similarly to the fishing rod, but has a stronger throw upwards as well as to the side? I get that without a cool-down it will be kinda powerful, but it won't add much to combat and mainly focuses on traveling around. The crafting recipe could also be a fishing rod with two pickaxes and the stronger the picks, the more uses the grappling hook has. Wood=5, Stone=10, Iron=15 or 20, Gold will be glimmering and look really nice, but only go 10, and Diamond=30.

    brilliant for them enhanced biomes, it would be particularly be beneficial if it has a revers function to, especially to scale down ravines, you have my vote.

    Mountains are being updated how about the way we climb the mountains. It would make sense to have grappling hooks in Minecraft. Not only would it be easier to climb mountains, but it would be easier to build tall structures in survival with out having to switch from survival to creative every time. To have a grappling hook in Minecraft would be amazing! I would feel like batman LOL!

    What if you make rope from three-string and some honey?
    Then, with the rope, you can make grappling hooks or maybe attach the rope to a bow/crossbow for long-distance effect!
    It would be a useful crafting component too!

    This would go good with that new mountain update.

    As people have been pointing out, ender pearls will become redundant for a lot of situations. Realistically, given the weight of the grapple hook's head matching a pickaxe, throw distance could be reduced to 2-4 blocks; for an easily accessible item like this that distance should be useful enough without replacing ender pearls. As well as this, I see comments on raising the hook's durability. Assuming it can recieve enchantments, effects of the unbreaking enchantment will make a more sturdy hook obtainable without being overly cheap.

    I've got an idea for this related to the Nether update.

    I'm thinking that, as a new form of transportation, there could be a Netherite grappling hook.

    It would be made out of Netherite ingots and weeping vines.

    When thrown from the hand it could act as sort of a reverse lead, possibly allowing the player to tie it off and climb it. (right right clicking would pull it back to you)

    Its real strength, however, would be from using it with a Crossbow. When loaded into a Crossbow, you'd be able to fire it far and quickly, and right clicking would pull the player towards the block it connected with.

    With the crossbow you'd also be able to quickly pull certain mobs, and maybe items, towards you as well.

    I do not think something like this would be OP because for one thing, I see no way it'd be better than flying, and it wouldn't negate fall damage or anything like that, so it'd still be dangerous. (especially in the Nether, where I'm imagining it could be very useful)

    This is a great idea! I have a mobile game called Ark survival evolved and there are grappling hooks that you attach to crossbows. I think it would be good to use the grappling rope like an arrow that you can collect.

    Hope this gets added to Minecraft! 🤞

    I love this idea. I feel like this is especially relevant with the upcoming mountain generation coming. maybe even something that lets you climb up walls like a spider would work, an ice pick or something, its not op because we already have elytra, but just something to make exploration a little more fun, and to stop that annoying moment where you have to break one block to get over a ledge

    I love this idea! However, I think there should be more uses, because it's kind of expensive.
