…Equipped with a jump drive that allows the robot to jump and close on enemies when needed… – in-game description


Introduction

The Griffin is a heavy robot with 2 medium and 2 light hardpoints. It was released in version 0.8.0.


Ability

This robot has the Jump ability. Although physically larger, it can jump higher and farther than the Cossack and the Rogatka, but at the cost of a 25 second cooldown timer. (Spending 6 seconds in the air, a 19 second interval from the last jump.) The Jump ability allows it to ambush opponents and to escape (or avoid) engagements that it can't win or when it has run out of ammunition and is reloading.


Strategy

The Griffin is the most popular robot in the game (based on Pixonic), due to it having strong firepower, and furthermore being sold for silver. It isn't agile (max speed of 35 km/h), but with the ability to jump, it can escape a bad situation quickly, or, on the contrary, jump into the fight. It boasts two medium hardpoints and two light hardpoints, giving it lots of firepower and versatility. This robot is oriented around a sturdy assault strategy, as a lot of medium and light weapons have great synergy when mounted together. For example, two Molots with two Molot Ts add up to around the equivalent of 5 Molots. For this reason, many players consider it one of the most versatile robots in the game.


Possible Setups

Some effective setups for the Griffin are:

Note: When "Opt." is next to a slot type, it refers to one of the multiple options that can be used in combination with the other weapon(s) slot type(s).

Each slot type is filled with only one particular weapon. For example, if a robot has 3 light all three of those slots are filled with Pinatas, as mixing weapons of the same slot type is not advisable.

Trivia

  • Its cockpit strongly resembles British bomber Handley Page Victor’s nose, body, and engine.
  • If you look very closely the Griffin has 4 tiny spikes on each foot, 2 on each ‘toe', possibly like the talons of the creature it was named after.
  • It is named after the Griffin, a mythical beast that had the head, wings and front legs of an Eagle and the rear torso, leg and tail of a Lion. This is likely due to its ability to “swoop” down on its enemies with its jump ability.
  • Griffin was named “the most popular robots” by Pixonic, according to their statistics, along with Magnum being the most popular weapon. It is not known if these two events are related due to Griffin being able to mount Magnums.
