  • Outgoing – Lieutenants – Starscream, Shockwave
  • Megatron gains new abilities and his lieutenants gain 2~8% Armor and 2~8% Attack Rating.
  • Incoming – Lieutenants – Starscream
  • Megatron’s Special Attacks have a 30~70%% chance to Stun the opponent for 3.5 seconds. This effect will only trigger once per fight for each Special Attack and this Stun debuff cannot be Fused.
  • Incoming – Lieutenants – Shockwave

  • Mutual – Enemies – Optimus Prime, Bumblebee GS
    + 2~8% Attack Rating.

STRONG MATCH-UPS:
Most Bots – You don’t become undisputed leader of the Decepticons without being a formidable combatant.

Grindor – Megatron will rip through Brawlers like Grindor who generate Armor to protect themselves. With his Signature Ability awakened, Megatron will also steal their buffs to boost his own abilities.

Optimus Prime GS – Megatron will gain Unstoppable at low health whenever knocked down. This may punish commanders that rely too much on the Autobot Leader’s Roll Out ability.

WEAK MATCH-UPS:
Soundwave – Megatron relies on his powerful Fusion Cannon to get through his fights, having his powerful shots reflected back by a Sonic Shield will put a damper on Megatron’s plans.

Galvatron – With very few buffs to steal, and no armor to break, Galvatron will show Megatron the difference Unicron’s assistance can make.

RECOMMENDED MODULES FOR MEGATRON:
Paralyzer – The Paralyzer’s ability to Stun the opponent after a special Attack will leave them vulnerable to a blast from the Fusion Cannon.

Transwarp Cell – Getting hit by the Fusion Cannon is bad enough, getting your Power Drained at the same time is the quickest way to the scrap pile.
