I've been wanting to finish this up for a long time. He's a member of a faction of Decepticons called the Beserkers, led by Tumbler, Burnout's old master before she became an Autobot. Meet the mech that sent Burnout to the afterlife. *** To view more art, visit my gallery at the-GEARSMITH on deviantART *** SCREWLOOSE Faction: Decepticon Sub-Group: Beserkers Function: Tracker Alternate Mode: Razorswift “Intent derives from an expectation of conquest.” Profile: Screwloose finds life without combat to be a dull and uninteresting stretch of wasteful time. He is constantly looking for the next challenge, the next worthy opponent to test his honed skills in Metallikato. But unfortunately, many of his quarries have failed to deliver on their promise as a formidable foe. As a result, Screwloose has grown tired of war altogether and spends the bulk of his time secretly searching through Tumbler's personal database looking for promising targets, sometimes spending months away at a time on a killing sojourn. While this behavior often makes Tumbler furious, it has come to be expected, along with Screwloose's return endeared by the seared carcass of an obliterated warrior. While searching through Tumbler's datalogs, Screwloose believed he had found a worthy opponent in the Autobot Burnout. But, once again, he found himself to be gravely disappointed. Still, her fighting spirit impressed him, compelling him to leave her spark core intact, yet exposed, an action in Metallikato known as “the highest merciful insult”. Abilities: Screwloose is a deadly opponent, displaying an arsenal of bladed weapons, swords, razor wings, heel and shoulder spikes...anything that can pierce shell. His wings can be superheated during a high-velocity strafe in flight mode, slicing through the most reinforced chassis before his prey even knew what hit them. He is an excellent tracker who displays an almost spiritual connection with his environment. He spends countless astrohours formulating his attack strategy and honing his skills before engaging any opponent. Weaknesses: Screwloose is arrogant and refuses to battle warriors he deems unworthy of his skill. This brings him at odds with his teammates as he will leave the field of battle even if the war suggests a loss for the Beserkers. It is only later that he reveals his disgust with his comrades' tactics. Fortunately for Screwloose, the Beserkers rarely lose a fight. His alternate mode, while deadly when utilizing the element of surprise, lacks in maneuverability and can become an easy target when his high velocity turbines have exhausted enough fuel.
