PRDX-4 is one of the few known Assembly Defense Robots that has not been corrupted and turned into a Stromling Mech. PRDX-4 hangs out at the Launch Area with Eeekums, but will not talk to players until the Maelstrom fog is cleared from the area. PRDX-4 is also a Model Vendor whose inventory consists of models from the Mech Bay Ball-Bot model set. Players must interact with PRDX-4, Dusty Holster, and Kirsten Quasar to complete the Making More Friends achievement.
PRDX-4 learns that PRDX-7 was damaged outside the Paradox Research Facility. PRDX-4 sends players to smash Stromling Mechs, collect spare parts, and rebuild PRDX-7. Since PRDX-7 gets smashed often, PRDX-4 sends players to repair him daily.

During beta testing, PRDX-4 was unnamed, instead identified as "Paradox Mech". Prior to the Crux Prime update, PRDX-4 was not listed as a "Robot Picnicker". Prior to the Starbase 3001 update, PRDX-4 used the same color scheme as the Stromling Mechs, sans their Maelstrom glow effects.
Prior to the Crux Prime update, PRDX-4's speech would swap out the letters "i" and "o" for the number "1" and "0" (i.e. "The 0nly way t0 cure my 1nfected br0thers 1s t0 smash them and rebu1ld them."). This was likely because PRDX-4 is a robot as opposed to an organic being, and because binary is based upon the numbers "1" and "0". This feature was removed for unknown reasons, but PRDX-4 now prefaces every sentence with "Beep!"
Prior to the Power of the Nexus Force update, PRDX-4 told players about Pet Cove and Paradox. PRDX-4 also stated that the only way to cure Stromling Mechs is to smash and rebuild them. This story element was not reflected in gameplay, as Stromling Mechs could only be rebuilt into turrets, but may have been a remnant of the Corrupted Mowers that preceded Stromling Mechs.
- PRDX-4 is based upon the LEGO set 4416 Robo Pod. Unlike the infected Defense Robots and Paradox Mechs, PRDX-4 uses the same color scheme as the original X-Pod.
- PRDX-4 is probably short for Paradox-4. However, as the Power of the Nexus Force update alters one of Beck Strongheart's lines to no longer identify Security Mechs as formerly belonging to Paradox, while giving Epsilon Starcracker lines to identify them as former Assembly Defense Robots, PRDX-4 more likely belongs to Assembly in the current storyline.
