Announcer's Quote: "Hailing all the way from Switzerland, get in a jam for Gridlock!"


Gridlock is almost completely bronze, with gold attributes along with blue tints for the hand. On his face, his mouth seems to be a bit weird. His whole body is not fully covered, allowing you to see his chassis and the light of the Blue Cyanide Core in his chest. Gridlock is pretty large for a WRB 'bot. In a news report at the StarFire Arena (which he got Nuke Fisted by Zeus), he is almost as tall as Zeus himself.


  • He was the very first bot who managed to hit Zeus, but it was one weak right cross before Zeus nuke-fisted him. He was about to land a left cross but was interrupted.
  • In the iOS game Real Steel World Robot Boxing, Gridlock's card says he's from Italy but the announcer says he's from Switzerland.
  • There is a similar error in the Real Steel iOS game shop description, but it says Gridlock is from Switzerland.
  • He is flat footed.
  • He has a Gold variation in the iOS game, Gridlock Gold. Due to Gridlock already being gold, this gold variation has a darker golden suit with some dark-red spots.
  • In his concept art, his name was originally Atlas.
  • After an update in Real Steel WRB, the camera for his special and win messed up
