BioEdit

Forged with the spark of a fighter and the cerebral circuits of a jock, Sideswipe is always down for a fight. Some may claim he relishes testing his skills too much, but he couldn't care less as long as he's battling to defend freedom.

StrategyEdit

Player Edit

Sideswipe is a pretty basic Scout, but his main advantages are Critical Attacks and flat Power charging.

Opponent Edit

As you're more likely to hit an opponent Sideswipe more than he hits your Bot, he will Evade often. Any one-hit or two-hit Special Attacks should be activated when Sideswipe does not have Agility active.

If using Ranged Heavy Attack Bots like Bludgeon, don't spam ranged heavies; it will give Sideswipe more Power as he sidesteps them.

Strong Match-upsEdit

  • Rhinox - Sideswipe can remove all of Rhinox's Shields in a single combo. But be careful not to get Power Locked while Sideswipe is charging Power.
  • Mixmaster

Weak Match-upsEdit

  • Bonecrusher - Sideswipe will be punished by Bleeding as he inflicts Critical Attacks.
  • Hot Rod - Decelerating the red speedster lowers his power gain rate.
  • Kickback - Heavy attacks at the beginning of the match eat up Sideswipe's power gains.

Recommended ModulesEdit

  • The Nightbird's Mark will enhance Sideswipe's Critical Hits.
  • Tech Console - Only when Sideswipe's Signature Ability is awakened is this Module useful.
  • Scout's Sentry - Sideswipe will gain more Power from an increased Critical Rate and Power Lock the opponent when he evades.
  • Prime Module

ObtainmentEdit

  • Sideswipe Arenas
