You may also find a Mythic version of the Chains of Hades by defeating the Boss NPC in the Underworld. Hades can drop the Chains and a Mythic Harbinger SMG when he and his hordes are defeated.

How to Use the Chains of Hades in Fortnite

The Chains of Hades can be used in two different ways. The first is to deal damage while they are a short distance away. The second is to throw out the chains and pull the enemy closer in order to attack.

The Chains of Hades currently do 40/40/70 damage in consecutive hits, making it pretty powerful. the only downside is that it requires you to be up close and personal with the enemy, which could allow them to get a headshot in with a shotgun.

To use the chains effectively, you will want to take your enemy by surprise. Use the hookshot to pull them towards you when they least expect it. At that point they will be disoriented, allowing you to get a couple of good hits in with the chains again.
