    Now we all know that when Bumblee's visor is up, he's kind of a fragile underdog that gets his ass kicked. When his visor is down however... He turns into a completely different creature (no pun intended), and takes down his foes that is only a bit slower than Prime.

    My question is: What does his visor actually do for Bee to make him an unstoppable war machine? Does it bring up a screen of some sort and predicts the enemy's movements and highlight weak spots for Bumblebee to strike, and does it give Bee important combat data in order for him to be successful... Or is it just a motivator of sorts, and a confidence builder that causes Bee to be more sure of himself and his skills?

    Naturally, it's for protection.

    But I like the thought of it being a motivator. For all intents and purposes, it just looks really freaking cool.

    This... And of course it makes him braver knowing his face/eyes are protected.

    Maybe it gives him the confidence to do better because no-one can see his ugly face

    His visor determines when shits about to get real.

    It's like holding the gun normally verses holding it sideways gangster style.

    It allows him to see past the explosions and shaky cam and actually tell what's going on. Naturally, it gives him a pretty big advantage.

    Maybe the visor gives him a targeting system. But it mainly just protects his face.

    well if you wanna be all deep and analyze it its kind of like when the character jack in the novel lord of the flies puts on his war paint it covers up any insecurities allowing him to do things he normally couldnt like kill. but really since this is micheal bay we're taling about here its just because it looks badass

    It protects his eyes.

    No seriously, it's not the reason he's strong, it just signifies that he's gotten serious, and when 'Bee is serious, he gets shit done.

    Gives him the ability to see through time and re-write the script so his character remains alive while as a bi-product it produces a minimum of 20 bumblebee toys per movie year.

    Actually because Bumblebee's eyes take longer to render the visor was added so fight scenes would be easier. This is also another reason Optimus looses his mouth when he fights.

    his facemask could be the cybertronian equivilant of a berserker's bearskin jacket. perhaps the simple act of putting it on drives him into a bloodrage bananas mindset.

    It lets him see everything in 3D!!! Don't be surprised if they hand these out for the 3D viewings of the next film.
