Special 3 – Galvagun Overcharge

Synergy Bonuses:

Enemies – Starscream, Ultra Magnus

  • +2~8% Attack Rating

Living Weapon – Shockwave

  • +4~16% Damage to Heavy and Special Attack 3

Strong Match-ups:

  • Ultra Magnus – Galvatron’s fighting style uses moves that quickly alternate between Physical and Energy Damage types, makin this bot extremely hard for Ultra Magnus to adapt to.
  • Grimlock – Grimlock will not have time to purify Galvatron’s Dark Burn, making it one of the few Damaging Debuffs that can bypass the king lizard’s signature ability.

Weak Match-ups:

  • Prowl – Keeping Galvatron’s power low is the best way to keep him from using his devastating Special Attacks.
  • Ratchet – Galvatron’s signature ability requires the opponent to be at low health, something Ratchet is adept at preventing.

Recommended Modules for Galvatron:

  • Strange Refractor – Galvatron must Block to channel Dark Energy, giving this dark Decepticon additional Block Proficiency and the ability to Stun opponent’s when Blocking creates a deadly combination.
  • Laser Guidance Module – The destructive potential of Galvatron’s Ranged Attacks are unmatched by any other bot, placing him on the Laser Guidance Module is a great way to stop raiders in their tracks.
