Strong Match-ups:

  • Brawlers like to Armor Up and often focus on Melee Damage. Rodimus can easily Nullify and Armor Break with his Specials, and he’ll gain Armor if he gets hit by too many Melee attacks.

Weak Match-ups:

  • Demolitions bots tend to land fewer, but big damage hits, especially with their special attacks. A Demolition bot can blow right past some of Rodimus Prime’s low health benefits. Ranged attacks also won’t trigger Rodimus Prime’s Armor Up passive.
