Strong Match-ups:

Megatron

  • Megatron’s tough Armor will do nothing to stop Shockwave’s Shock damage and Repair Block will ensure no one ever hails Megatron again.

Waspinator

Weak Match-ups:

Grimlock

  • Grimlock’s signature ability will turn Shockwave’s Shocking Damage into powerful Melee Buffs, proving that sometimes brawn does triumph over brains.

Drift

  • Shockwave will fail to gather energy from Drift as the samurai has no Energy Attacks to be manipulated by this evil walking computer.

Recommended Modules for Shockwave:

Strange Refractor

  • This Mod will turn Shockwave’s Block into a nightmare for both Ranged and Melee playstyles.

Transwarp Cell

  • This Mod will allow Shockwave to more intelligently make use of his Energy Counters when he gets them.
