    The Cosmic Rust gun he uses on Ironhide.. Why didnt he use it again in the film.. When 1.. He was fighting Prime and 2, He was being wolfpacked by the Wreckers... Plus he could of threatened Megatron with it...

    I would go mental if i had that type of weapon in my Armoury..

    He did, he just never hit anyone with it. But he absolutely fired it. (though he dropped it just before his final showdown with Optimus, when he got bazooka'd)

    Apparently he can only score a hit at point-blank on an unsuspecting target.

    It's a close-range weapon, great for sneaking up on someone but not very helpful in mdedium-range combat.

    I mean, it seems to have range. He fired on Optimus at the Washington Monument, he just missed. (by like inches, to his credit)

    Probably those rusty particles could be harmful for the owner if the target is too far. Ironhide was an ideal target - he stood close and didn't resist...

    He actually hits sideswipe with it right before he gets Rocket launchered. But it obviously doesn’t kill him. So who knows. Maybe it needs multiple shots (as seen with ironhide) to actually kill someone.

    Thinking about it, with a gun like that, Sentinel could have easily won the war without making a deal with the Decepticons.

    I'll say he doesn't hit anyone else with it because he's an old bot who's better trained at hand to hand combat. It's why he had to take Ironhide completely off guard, with his back to him.

    well..he was supposed to kill the twins with it but i digress...what is the gun he is using in chicago? is that indeed the cosmic rust cannon? because he does shoot sideswipe..or maybe swipe dodges it in an incredibly awkward manner? swipe is the unsung hero of that battle..he is the one who causes sentinel to drop his vaunted shield momentarily allowing that annoying bald human to hit him with a rocket...i hate that guy!

    probably my favorite fight in the series though...sentinel vs. bee, prime, swipe, ratchet & humans...sentinel goes ham! & he woulda won if not for megatron's betrayal

    I dunno, most soldiers have weapons that can kill other soldiers in one hit. Do you think Vietnam was just the US pacing themselves?

    He hit Sideswipe, but maybe it has a non-rust setting that he had it on at the time. And Sideswipe seemed to be just grazed whereas Ironhide obviously got three point blank shots. Maybe the movies' cosmic rust is okay if you're just grazed, whereas other continuities as far as I remember immediately spread after a small touch.

    Also, and this is again taking into account a different continuity, Animated Rodimus was coated and was slow to recover, but he survived a presumably prolonged amount of time before aid came. Ironhide got two shots through his back and he was obviously a goner since it hit his internals at bare minimum. Sideswipe got that quick graze to his shoulder. Long story short, I guess a brief exterior exposure to cosmic rust isn't fatal but probably needs treatment. Cosmic rust to your internals is fatal as poor Ironhide learned.

    Just my musings. Love that scene even if Ironhide was never mentioned again. Genuinely stomach churning and chilling.

    Good point. I also realized if this was mass produced, this could have backfired if it got in enemy hands, which would have been inevitable.
