    I was looking at a video on the dotm game where Ironhide shoots Megatron and he is knocked through the wall and down a floor. He also says that he will pay dearly for that. I think he got revenge by telling Sentinal that in order for him to cut ties with the autobots he must kill Ironhide and strike a mighty blow against the Autobots. What do you guys think?

    Sentinal shot ironhide because ironhide was the only one there with enough fire power to take him down and megatron had no way to tell sentinal to shoot ironhide

    Who does it make more sense to kill?

    *A bunch of humans running around like ants?
    *Three sports car Autobots who are too tiny to pose a real threat and in vehicle mode at that moment?
    *The huge, powerful Autobot second in command/weapons specialist/Optimus' best friend/motherfucker who just mopped the floor with the elite Decepticon assassin group, who is probably the most powerful Autobot after Optimus himself, whose death would cause a major blow to both Optimus' and NEST's morale as a lesson for those who cross you, who happens to not be listening to your announcing your betrayal, and is conveniently turned around?

    It's Sentinel, with an "e". The letter "e" comes after "d".
    Learn to spell. Thanks.

    You could theorize that , if the game is considered canon with the films. The actual reason that Sentinel shot Ironhide, though is because Ironhide was the only one there who could have killed Sentinel Prime.

    Had Ironhide been facing him, he would have at least wrestled Sentinel's gun away from him, and we would have seen a much better scene with Optimus rolling up and getting in on the fight.

    If Ironhide wasn't a threat, Sentinel wouldn't even have bothered with him, much in the same manner as he did with the humans in the NEST hanger.

    Probably just a coincidence as far as the video game is concerned. I'm in agreement with the others who say Ironhide got taken out merely due to opportunity and the fact that Ironhide was the only Bot there who even posed a credible threat / even match to Sentinel's more pressing motive to steal the teleportation pillars from the NEST vault. Sentinel was just removing an obstacle in the way of his quest to revive Cybertron; probably wasn't anything personal since he didn't know Ironhide very well at all, it seems.

    My question is, where the hell was Optimus when all of this was going down? On the robo-sh*tter? XD

    Sentinel Prime killed Ironhide beacuse he was the closest Autobot. Note how he also shoots at Bumblebee.

    "The actual reason that Sentinel shot Ironhide, though is because Ironhide was the only one there who could have killed Sentinel Prime."

    I just don't understand why every body think that Ironhide possessed any threat to Sentinel!?Sentinel kicked Optimus's ass not mentioning Nest,Bumblbe,Sidswipe and Ratchet at once!It's just stupid:crazy:

    I think NO.

    Sentinel never worked FOR Megatron. And he didn't give a shit what Megatron thought or if Megatron liked him. He made that really clear in the movie.

    Megatron was the one courting Sentinel, not the other way around.

    i think why ironhide died is so Bay could save money on CGI for the unnecessary characters and that scene presented an opportunity for him to do so. so in reality, Bay shot ironhide. Bay "discharged him from duty". now ironhide's ghost shall haunt the asshole for all of eternity. (and why did he rust away when jazz didn't? come on Bay, use your pathetic excuse for a brain and try to put 2 and 2 together)

    Because of the weapon used. Pay attention.

    The Cosmic Rust Gun made Ironhide rust away. Come on, Onslaught24, try to put 2 and 2 together.
