  • Sky Assault – Windblade, Waspinator
    • +7~25% Anti-Evade

Strong Match-ups:

  • Optimus Prime (MV1)
    • Starscream will be great against Brawlers like Optimus Prime, whose frequent combat buffs make them easy for this tactician to take down.
  • Sideswipe
    • Once Starscream has his Signature ability awoken be careful to consider what bots frequently activate buffs.

Weak Match-ups:

  • Iron Hide
    • This bot rarely activates buffs, making him untouched by Starscream’s most powerful abilities.
  • Bonecrusher
    • This Warrior relies almost completely on Damaging Debuffs, something Starscream has no answer to.

Recommended Modules for Starscream:

  • Nightbird’s Mark
    • Increasing Critical Chance and granting the ability to Evade more types of attacks perfectly complement Starscream’s cowardly tactics.
  • EMI Module
    • Starscream relies on his Ranged Attacks to deal the most damage. Weaking the Ranged counter attacks from opponent’s will strengthen Starscream’s hand when facing raider
