Get a grip (or hook) on it II

This grappling hook consists of two canisters. The top canister fires off to become the hook, while the bottom canister is the end of the rope. This grappling hook has two settings: magnetic and hook. When 'magnetic' is activated, the cylinder magnetized after it is shot. When 'hook' is activated, 3 barbs are released from the inside of the canister so it can hook around an object.
Before using a propelled grappling hook to climb, a ranged attack must be made with the grappling hook to successfully grapple the target. The 'defense' of the target is the climb DC.
