A mysterious man in a motorcycle helmet, Gruber is consistently ranked as the number one arena fighter in the whole of The Pitt. A veteran of one-on-one combat, Gruber concentrates solely on furthering his career and meticulously cleaning his Infiltrator rifle.
Gruber was once a Pitt slave. After winning his freedom fighting in the Hole, he continued to fight for the glory of it.
Interactions with the player characterEdit
- Unsafe Working Conditions: Gruber is your final opponent in the Hole, and will open fire as soon as the round begins. You will need to kill him to finish the arena battles.
At one point in development, he was to fight alongside raider fighters.
- "You're going up against Gruber. He's one of the only slaves to win in the Hole. There's only ever been... what? Three? I guess he got a taste for blood. But unfortunately for you, he's got a pretty decent gun. So, odds are, this is the last time you and I will be talking." – Faydra, describing Gruber
- "And now, this slave has proven willing to kill and die for her freedom! But how will she fare against the man who made it all the way: Gruber! Undefeated in the Hole, Gruber has yet to meet his match. Only one will walk out with their freedom! Only one will walk out alive! Release the barrels! GO!" – Arena announcer
- "Man, you killed the fuck out of Gruber!" – Faydra
Behind the scenesEdit
When translated in German, Grube means, "pit." A Gruber is, in rather old German, someone "working in a pit" or more literally someone working in a mine.
