Thats just it....it doesnt say he's in effective at night. What it says is that is..... Which in all honesty would be true of any devise working on solar energy because with out the sun he's not replenishing the energy used in battle. So he's "Vulnerable" because he doesnt have the sun multiplying his strength well beyond his norms nor does he have the sun to continue to recharge his cells after he uses the energy. Well "coming in guns blazing" is exactly how he would enter this fight.In the profile you gave it says he's only happy when in the throws of mortal combat and he was written as a commando type in the G2 comics. What I see in Snarl is the ultimate Army loner.....Rambo type, able to take any fight threw to the end. As for Smokescreen's weapons...... Smokescreens missiles would bounce off Snarls armored body as if nothing hit it. For Smokescreen to use his smoke attack he would have to get pretty close to Snarl.....at least to drive around him in an open area, this alone would give Snarl an excellent opportunity to fire at close range.....A person that likes to fight so much cant be a bad shot and would be able to hit Smokescrean on one of his passes either taking out a tire of hitting him square in the body causeing him to come to a stop.....giving Snarl the chance he need to get his hands or tail on Smokescreen and once that happens its all over. As for Smokescreens disruptor rifle.........I believe that a combination of Snarls Armor plating and his solar energy source would help him to risist a hit to almost anywhere on his body except his head. So in the long run Smokescreen only has 1 weapon that might help him win and he's going to need to get a really good shot for it to really help him. Snarl also had a gun and missal launcher. Which is what I said at the begining. Smokescreens only winning this one if its at nite. And if Snarl was any smarter he would stall till day light. Thats true. In your opinion. Which is obvioulsy not shared by all here. And saying that its Snarl wins because he's more popular or because of the preseption of him being a Dinobot is a cop out.
