    Random topic here, I was just playing through the
    sea of rust mission with Cliffjumper
    and noticed that some of the Decepticons in that mission have a green glow to their body lighting. Not all of them, some like the snipers and larger guys have purple still. Just wondering if there's some reason for this, I know their dealing with
    toxic waste
    and all that but is it explained somehow that I'm not aware? I know it's not even a big deal but it got me thinking, was hoping someone could explain.

    i think it has to do with how you have the emanations set up. that happens in MP. just go to your settings and you should find an option that allows you to switch between you vs. enemy and autobot vs. decepticon

    I'm not talking about multiplayer at all. In the campaign there are cons with green glow, I have my multiplayer settings on Autobot vs Decepticon. This is totally unrelated.

    Edit: Just tested it, they're still green.

    The toxic waste is also green, so I'd say that has something to do with it. Funny how, in both games, you fight enemies who don't glow your opposing color.

    I think it's something to do with Shockwave's experiments. The Guardians glow green as well, in both modes, and there seems to be something really off about them.

    Foreshadowing a possible third faction in part 3, perhaps?

    I think those Guardians are just awesomely creepy, especially since they're so bossy and all the soldiers respect them.

    Yeah, Shockwave probably had a hand in it.

    Just figured their weapons were fueled by the toxic refinement process. After all, they got rivers of it to spare.

    Just noticed too that the feral insecticons have a green glow, maybe they're related somehow? Their chassis don't look insecticon but maybe Shockwave has tampered with them somehow.

    Theres also green glowing Decepticons on one of the Escalation maps.

    I think it's just a con altered with that Energon waste.

    He had his hand in Grimlock's mouth too.

    Didn't work out. Just sayin.
