A farm girl from Central Queensland, Tori "Gridlock" Tallyo Fairous learned from an early age that the best way through any hardship is with the help of family. Years spent running the family cattle farm honed her natural leadership skills, but her preferred method for dealing with problems is to get stuck into them herself and to ignore the inevitable paperwork that piles up afterward. Suffice to say, taking on a more formal role as an officer in the SASR hasn’t been one of her top priorities, despite the many attempts made to promote her.
Gridlock bolsters the attacking team’s area denial capabilities with her Trax Stingers. Throw one on the ground, and it immediately starts deploying clusters of Defender-damaging spikes in a radial pattern. Each Stinger produces quite a lot of spike clusters, allowing you to really jam up a staircase or a hallway, or cover a large area of a room. Attackers can traverse the spikes without hindrance, but Defenders who dare to tread on them will take damage, be slowed down, and make noise.
Though Jäger’s ADS gadget can’t affect Gridlock’s gadget, Defenders can simply destroy the clusters of spikes with bullets, explosives, or melee attacks. If they manage to shoot the Stinger device while it is deploying, they can prevent some or all of the clusters from spawning. Keep in mind, though, that all of these actions are noisy, and you risk alerting the attacking team to your whereabouts.
Trax Stingers x 3
- "Thrown gadget that deploys barbed mats capable of slowing down and hurting enemies who traverse them."
— In-game description
Trax Stingers allow Gridlock to obstruct flanking routes, or surround a planted defuser with a defensive perimeter. Toss a Trax Stinger through a hatch or between floorboards to exert some pressure from above, or lob one into an area where you know a Defender is hiding to put them in a prickly position.
- A gridlock, synonymous to "deadlock," is a situation where progress is not made, typically between two competing parties. It is also a form of traffic congestion where "continuous queues of vehicles block an entire network of intersecting streets, bringing traffic in all directions to a complete standstill".
