The Griffin's Jump ability allows it jump higher and farther than the Cossack and the Rogatka, spending an average of 6 seconds in the air. It has a 25-second cooldown which starts immediately when activated. The Jump ability allows the Griffin to ambush opponents and avoid or escape engagements against more powerful robots.
The Griffin is not very fast (max speed of 38 km/h) but its Jump ability allows it to escape a bad situation or deliver an ambush against an unsuspecting target. With two medium hardpoints and two light hardpoints the Griffin has substantial firepower. The Griffin is susceptible to attack while in mid-air, and is particularly vulnerable to lock-on weapons. With decent hit points (HP), the Griffin can absorb moderate damage, making the Griffin one of the most versatile robots in the lower leagues.
Griffin's combination of health, mobility and firepower gives it versatility in the lower leagues as long-range support (Molot Ts and Molots), an efficient ambusher (Tulumbas and Pins also called a "Russian Death Button," or Orkans and Pinatas) and mid-range support (Punishers and Punisher-Ts). The Griffin is a popular and iconic bot in lower leagues and can be used for transition in the mid-leagues. It is a great bot for all beginning pilots to help with learning basic skills.
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.

Long Range (800-1,000m)
Note: Although it has high damage output and anti-shield capability, using the Shotgun setup on the Griffin isn't as recommended as other Shotgun setups due to the Griffin's low health, making it inadequate for sustained close-combat brawling, which is where shotgun weapons are most effective.

- Its cockpit strongly resembles the British bomber's "Handley Page Victor" nose, body, and engine.
- The Griffin did have an alternate model that was available in the "Gathering Storm" operation premium pass.
- 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 robot” 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.
- This robot was added on January 20, 2015.
