— Book II on Schofield's luck with Maghooks

The Armalite MH-12 Maghook is a piece of equipment like a grappling hook, employed by the U.S. Marine Corps. Shane Schofield has used them many times, often saving his life.

Ice StationEdit


Area 7Edit

Some Maghooks were kept inside Marine One during the President's visit to Area 7. After the base's forces turned against them, Schofield and his team eventually managed to get a hold of a few of the Maghook's.



Scarecrow and the Army of ThievesEdit

Schofield had a Maghook on him when his research unit was forced to confront a hostile force at Dragon Island, but upon seeing the French varient, the Magneteux, he opted to use them in his plan to steal the Red uranium spheres due to their superior weight-bearing capacity.

Huntsman SeriesEdit

The Six Sacred StonesEdit

Astro offered Jack West Jr his MH-12A variant when the team was trying to get back onto the Halicarnassus.

Later, Jack used it to reach the Vertex to keep Switchblade from dropping the pillar.

The Five Greatest WarriorsEdit

While falling into the chasm, Jack took Switchblade's Maghook from his back holster and used its grappling hook to stop his fall.

Attributes Edit

It is shaped like a Tommy Gun with a double handed grip. The 'head' of the Maghook is a magnetic plate, which can be switched on and off. There are also standard hooks that emerge from the plate so that it will act as a standard grappling hook. It has up to 150 feet of cable.

The MH-12A variant is smaller, about the size of a large pistol.
