Smokescreen's got the right idea, why did the rest of Autobots think of it?

    Well in Smokescreen's first fight
    Smokescreen went in the storeroom and took the phase shifter and used it to knock Starscream out of the Apex Armour

    Now what I don't get is why the Autobots haven't bothered using
    the relic weapons they have collected over the course of the show? I mean the Decepticons used some of the ones they got in Operation Bumblebee and that made things difficult for the bots?
    Do the Autobots not believe in using these weapons or are they just dumb for not thinking of this before?

    Do you think they'll start doing so afterwards?

    The Autobots could have solved a lot of problems bringing a relic now and then.

    Get someone with the Immobiliser or the Polarity Gauntlet, bam, instant win. I suppose they don't want to risk getting cocky with them and losing them or something, but quite honestly, Smokescreen's the only one who actually decided to use common sense regarding super tools.

    They didn't really have any they could use before the Phase Shifter though.

    I mean, Spark Extractor? Only useful to use if you can take out the whole Con Crew at once, stupid to waste THIS trump card on one guy or a few Vehicons.

    Polarity Gauntlet? What's the point? For combat it's actualy clunkier than hand to hand, most useless Decepticon invention ever.

    The Immobilizer IS pretty useful and would be great in the field, but they probably won't use it since it's too damn OP and should've not been allowed to survive it's episode in first place, if they use it it'll get boring they will literally win every fight in 2 seconds and if they don't we'll wonder why they're not using it. You do not give characters powerful tools like this, you just don't.

    Hopefully they'll start using them now after Smokescreen used that, make their lives so much easier.

    Well in, Optimus words of wisdom..He would say something along the lines of "IT is best for us to fight fair amongst our enemy, though even we have many relics stored in our base it is best to not represents our selves as the enemy in the eyes of a human" ...Or something like that

    The Spark Extractor is a weapon best saved for the right moment

    The Polarity Gauntlet, I assume the Autobots don't want to risk getting stuck together again

    The Immobolizer, you got me

    They really didn't need to use the relics, until now.

    They may use the Immobilizer this week due to the red energon.

    Yes, that was smart of him. They have tons of relics yet barely ever seem to put any of them to use. They tried using the Spark Extractor but failed miserably. If the writers keep making situations where they use the relics in a smart and useful way, they'll feel less like random one off plot devices.

    Wow you got prime down to the t. I defiantly agree with you on that. Probably also cause the plan with the spark extractor failed and it was his idea, so if the nemesis didn't have a mind of its own they would have lost it to the cons. He probably doesn't want to risk loosing one again like that.

    What if he used the phase shifter to take Silas out of Breakdown's body?

    Man that would be hilarious as hell but it won't ever happen
