    I was watching TF1, and noticed that in the scene where Ironhide uses his guns to flatten the S7 vehicle's tires, and yells "INCOMING", Ratchet morphs two guns for both arms, and holds them in an aiming position. I thought it was pretty cool to see! It's a damn shame that he never uses both at the same time in any scenes.

    Yeah in DOTM when shooting at the pillar he uses his gun on his left hand rather than his right like usual.

    Though actually if you look closely it's not attached. It flips out of his arm but he's holding it.

    Yeah but both at once? I think we only get to see him hold two guns in this scene only.

    Yeah. The only time he uses two weapons is when he uses his gun and his saw.

    Strangely, Ratchet just got 62 times more badass.

    Nice find!

    Kool I love finding little things like that! I once found an image that showed jolt shooting a large energy bolt during the battle of giza and I saw in another capture that starscream killed/wounded Elita One.

    I'm surprised that no one has pointed this out yet. I noticed it during the first few times I saw it in theatres. I'm not trying to steal your thunder, OP, or be all hipster ("I noticed it before everyone else did"). :)  It's still a cool detail.

    :lol  But seriously. THIS. Watch Ratchet. He may take some steps back, but they're strategic steps back. Ratchet whips out both guns and he's ready to f**king rumble in that shot.

    In one of the quick 1 second shots of NEST and Ratchet FIRING AT THE DESERT. You can see Jolt lobbing an electric bolt with them. I think it's shortly before the Jordanian helicopters show up.

    It's because Ratchet is secretly the best and awesomest character in the movie, but he has to be kept out of the limelight because otherwise the war would be won instantly. He can heal any patient, but isn't allowed to. He can take out any enemy, but isn't allowed to. Because it's too easy. Optimus and BB would be out of the job, and second-stringers like Ironhide, Sideswipe and Dino would have no time to shine. These brief glimpses of coolness are the only hints of his devastating true nature. His mastery with arms, (the Wutastic) his exceptional gymnastic skills, (fucking jumping 30 feet in the air flipping over to cut Brawl's arm off in one blow!) his defiance in the face of execution, ("Get your hands off me!") his warm supporting nature (NON-VIOLENT PHYSICAL CONTACT!!!) and his fun-loving explorative nature. (That was tingly) Under the green (or yellow if you're DUMB) he's fighting a darkness. A horrible thirst for rage. And as he burries it, tries to contain and hide it grows. It's a battle he's constantly waging, which is one of the reasons behind his push to the back burner. If he was ever to engage in full-on combat and action scenes, the creators know that there'd be nothing left. Because a beast let loose is seldom recaptured. Because they ahve a movie to make, and one amazing man solving all the world's problems in seconds while amazing, makes for a short film. And also because Ratchet doesn't do fart jokes. And we gotta have those.

    And that is why Ratchet can dual-wield his guns.

    I've always noticed that in the first movie, but I don't think I noticed the duel guns in the sequels.

    This is around the time when it happens. I think it's right after this shot.
