    I personally like Bumblebee for Autobots, and Barricade for the Decepticons.

    Bumblebee for his room-clearing Shockwave ability, and the deadly Dash, then melee combo. I love his Car-mode machine Gun too.

    I like Barricade for the same reasons I like Bumblebee, the Car-Machine gun and Shockwave are both handy, but I like Barricade's Barrier ability over Bumblebee's Dash. Barrier is really useful for sheilding yourself when reviving a teammate, and if you're taking on a Machine gunner, or a titan.

    Your Favorites?

    I tend to choose Ratchet and Soundwave. Both have Barrier and Sentry which I find most useful. Barrier is great for shielding teammates that have fallen or are getting health. Sentry is awesome as a distraction and supplementary fire.

    Air Raid, Demolishor, Scattorshot, Onslaught are current faves. Stealth, Ammo Beacon, and the Omega Missile are damn useful.

    Special mention though goes to the bots with sentries as well, as they are the bane of cloakers.

    If I end up getting the DLC i'd add Onslaught and Demolisher to the list.

    but actually my list of favorites is:



    Soundwave(duh)
    Slipstream(cloak)
    Skywarp(Cloak/whirlwind)
    Megatron(drain)


    Optimus(Warcry)
    AirRaid(Cloak/Whirlwind)
    Silverbolt(Barrier)
    Warpath(Barrier)


    It sounds funny but it's true. I actually played as silverbolt for the longest time on autobot escalation. I quit using him for optimus because of his puny jet rockets. (my vehicle forms have to have FIREPOWA)

    After playing a few more rounds, I'd have to add Demolishor to my list of favorites. Dear lawd, he's so awesome.

    Yeah I am pretty much going with this.

    Although characters with cloak are very handy.
