Grindor is getting an Upgrade!

Greetings, Commanders!

On October 3, Grindor will be available in the Store for Bot Chips as one of October's Featured Bots!

This killer copter has high defense, but now has higher damage from his Signature Ability and the ability to temporarily disable his opponent's Special Attacks!

The following changes go live October 2nd at 10AM PDT!

• Increased damage of Perforate, Grindor's Signature Ability.
• Special Attack 1 has a chance to disable the opponent's Special 2 and 3 for a limited time.
• Special Attack 2 has a chance to disable the opponent's 3 for a limited time.
• Special Attack 3 will disable the opponent's Special 2 and Special 3 for a limited time.
• Special Attack 3 will apply a permanent Crit Rate Down debuff to the opponent.

    Luckily i have him duped 😁
  • Fantastic. Grindor was a recent 5* pull and I was quite disappointed. Hopefully this’ll amp up his use a ton.

    Looking good from what I can see though!!!!

    Need to ask though. Is the permanent crit rate debuff stackable?

    Grindor my friend, you're about to be worth the wait...
    So October has Grindor and who @Kabam Miike ?

  • Man, I expected a Buff, but this is great! Special Denial is really interesting for a Brawler, but it makes a lot of sense.

    However, can we get a specific number on the damage of his Buffed Sig?
  • Grindor was already a really underrated bot but this really makes him better.

    @Kabam Vydious any chance his Outlaw Synergy could be reworked with these new changes going into effect? Having a 100% chance to inflict Power Lock for 12 seconds when hitting with the first heavy seems pretty superfluous.

    Nah, it only affects the 1st heavy. It is just another way to control the opponent’s specials.

    Absolutely underrated as a general fighter, but many bring a brawler for purification purposes. That’s what grindor’s Been lacking, but a great update nonetheless. It keeps him relevant

    If you have a 5* Grindor and a 5* Brawler Signature Awakening you've been waiting to use (because your other 5* Brawlers are already duped), give me a hell yeah.

    HELL YEAH!!

    No please. Having that Power Lock is fine; gives them a small window to gain more power than the opponent at the start of the match. Additionally, synergize this... well, synergy, with the New and Improved Grindor's abilities could potentially make him great for Power Control.

    And it's a good alternative to Barry's Power Steal.

    I'm not sure he's too happy after getting his face torn in half.
  • Now I know what to do with my 350,000 bot chips. Nice upgrade.

  • Finally! He gets the buff he deserves

    I remember a time when all I got from 5* crystals were mv Megatron and Grindor.
    So now they're featured bots I'm sure as hell not getting them now 😁...😂...😭

    This is already my favorite bot upgrade/buff. Bout to R5 my 5* Grindor and take him off base defense.

    I suppose that crit rate down debuff can be exo filtered or cracker purified?

    Mfw I forged him a few days ago into my MV1.

    In all seriousness though, this is a game changer. Not only can he now increase his Attack rating more, he can also do so without worrying about those pesky Specials. This is absolutely perfect.
