StrategyEdit

PlayerEdit

Starscream may not have the best health rating, but his strength comes through his Null-Rays. He can deal significant damage when nullifying Armor, Melee, and Attack Buffs. The projectiles do not Nullify if they are blocked, so the best times to zap opponents are when they are dashing forward or just as they finish a melee Special Attack.

Starscream's Special 3 is quite weak if the opponent has no buffs; Only when the opponent has several long-lasting or permanent buffs is Starscream's Special 3 effective. Generally, it is recommended to use his Special 1 and 2 more frequently.

OpponentEdit

Demolition Bots have a disadvantage against Starscream if his Signature Ability is awoken; he can Nullify and severly Shock them through their many buffs. However, Ironhide and Ramjet have the fewest buffs, so these bots and bots who do not have many buffs are recommended to use against an awakened Starscream.

Strong Match-upsEdit

  • 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.
  • Optimus Primal - The ape's crit armor is as good as gone.
  • Grimlock - Grimlock's melee buffs can be nullified.

Weak Match-upsEdit

  • Ironhide - 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 ModulesEdit

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

ObtainmentEdit

  • Starscream Arenas
    • Repeat Offender (3 Star)
    • Power Play (4 Star)
  • Usurper Crystal
