StrategyEdit

PlayerEdit

Wheeljack has a low attack rating, but with three types of upgrades, he can adapt to different situations. Try going for three defensive Upgrades against high-attack bots like Brawlers with Melee Attacks. With three Power Upgrades, he can repeatedly win the Power race while repairing at SP3 and Power Leaking the opponent.

Wheeljack's Force Shield can be activated an unlimited number of times, so along with upgrade repairs, A skilled Commander can keep Wheeljack in top shape. The Force Shield is especially potent with the Nano-Repair Mastery; while the shield nulls all damage, a little bit of repair can keep the shield from being breached for the duration of the Nano-Repair.

OpponentEdit

On the other end, Wheeljack's Force Shield can be troublesome, especially if he has Nano-Repair in Raids and Arenas. The shield does not protect against damaging debuffs, so use Bots that deal frequent Bleeds and such to breach the shields.

Strong Match-upsEdit

  • Most bots - Skilled players can keep Wheeljack's health above 75% as long as he isn't bleeding, shocked or otherwise given a damaging debuff. Against all odds, Wheeljack can survive massive damage because of his force shield and can therefore take on bots who have a much higher rating than him.
  • Megatron (ROTF) - The mighty Megatron won't be able to deal his massive criticals if Wheeljack can activate his force shield.

Weak Match-upsEdit

  • Bumblebee (GS) – Bee’s ability to Shield Break will ensure the Force Shield is only a minor nuisance.
  • Drift – Drift’s frequent Critical Melee Hits will throw a wrench in Wheeljack’s plans.
  • Shockwave - The Decepticon scientist will still be able to inflict his deadly shocks through Wheeljack's force field

Recommended ModulesEdit

  • Tech Console – The tech console will improve Shocks, Shielding, and Repair.
  • Transwarp Cell – The Transwarp Cell mod will ensure that Wheeljack is fully Upgraded by making him use Heavy Attacks more often.

NotesEdit

  • His design is based on TakaraTomy‘s Transformers : Masterpiece - MP-20 Wheeljack toy but the logo along with the Lancias’ HF text and number ”539” is removed especially the sponsored logos (Alitalia (but kept the A logo),Britax,Pirelli,Oilo Fiat,Magneti Marelli,Sabelt,Bertone,Champion and Bilstein) to avoid licensing issues.
  • Wheeljack had a significant bug with his Offensive upgrades. They increased his Attack Rating exponentially based on his current Attack Rating, rather than his base Attack Rating as it was meant to be. This made Wheeljack waaayyy more powerful than he should be; A maxed 4-Star Wheejack could deal over 10,000 damage in one hit! A a bug-fix was promptly pushed on August 14.
  • Due to bugs with Wheeljack's Montthy Objectives resetting or not being available, all Commanders were given 110,000 Wheeljack Chips as compensation.
