    This stage sucks I meant I replayed it a dozen times in normal and got very frustrated to the point I have cursed the F* so many times... I switched to easy once and still didn't get through this stage... I meant the ai are super smart, while the throwback laser is f*king useless, i have to use that sling shot carefully for only 16 rounds.

    Edit: just stupid, the thread I Just finished and tried once more, and finally got it...


    Again: that throwback (g1megatron) laser is so f*king useless. I used the throwback laser to aim and shot that enemy with the scatter blaster three times and doesn't finish it. Sling shot one direct hit makes the kill (but only 16 rounds) got to make a couple double shots to make my last round successful.
    I bet High Moon knows it can be tough as a Teletran1 is there for user to switch weapon before starting that stage.

    If you have the G1 retro pack, then make sure you have the Sling-shock Cannon equipped.

    It kills in one shot, can take out multiple enemies at once and is easy to shoot without the need of fine-aiming. You'll have plenty of ammo to deal with all the 'cons they throw at you.

    I never had trouble with this, unless I was getting an achievement. (Killing 5 autobots with the slam ability)

    The only part I had any trouble with is the Cliffjumper stealth parts. Everything else was pretty cake.

    Never use the throwback laser for anything. It's solely for playing with once and then putting away forever.

    Stick with the lightning gun they give you in that room, or the scatter blaster if you're willing to get up close. And don't be afraid to split and take cover, the bomb can take punishment.

    The Throwback Megatron Pew Pew pistol is a piece of shit.

    The Shockwave gun helps, just keep something explosive handy. Try going up on the top above the bomb too and use one of the black hole bombs if you get overwhelmed.

    Don't forget about the health drops around the map too.

    I had trouble with this. Now, I will never advocate escort style objectives, even a short one like this. However, my deaths were mostly due to my stubborness to use the weapons I was most comfortable with, which weren't the best for this scene. Obviously High Moon knew that certain weapons made the part far more doable and added the Teletran link for you to switch, but I would still say that's just compensating for a poorly designed part. It reminds me of the "protect Ratchet while he heals Omega Supreme" scene in WFC. I don't mind something difficult, but escort/protect scenes should be extinct by now.
