    Soundwave seems to have unique set of weapons. He has tentacles which I doubt are effective against other transformers. Beside that all he has is Laserbeak which I consider trade off compared to normal guns.

    Has he been shown or said to have any other weapon?

    His razor-thin arms? His epic trolling that causes others to ragequit?

    He uses his arms as blades and Laserbeak for ballistic attacks as shown against Airachnid. He has also been known to transport motorbikes to the Arctic.

    He has his mind, and his skills, and is no less deadly for lack of guns. In brute force he utterly humiliated Airachnid (surely one of the most dangerous decepticons), and using his mind alone he made a joke of Arcees heroic space ship attack without even moving.

    Point is, if he ever had guns and blades it'd be overkill. :lol

    And this is why I'm starting to like this Soundwave.

    If Soundwave ever shows his face, I hopes it looks similar to a troll.

    I haven't seen him pick up or shoot a weapon or lazer, so don't know if SW has any other weapon other than his tenticals, lazerbeak, or those "blades"/arms.

    One idea I had for an attack was that he utilised his screen to build up an intense sonic rhythm, which, at it's most powerful, unleashed a sonic boom that tore up everything in its path or a stream of soundwaves that inflicted utter agony on someone's ears.

    Basically, he shoots sonic pain with his face.

    We are being quite deliberately teased with Soundwave. I'd wager we've seen very little of what he can do.

    Hopefully this doesn't end in anticlimax. However, his utter ownage of Airachnid showed off his physical threat pretty effectively. Turns out you don't need fancy weapons when you are so much faster and more durable that everything your opponent does is basically a joke. Lucky for Arcee that he just needed her completely gone ASAP.

    Here's some pics of a real life "Soundwave," an MQ-09 Reaper. I wish that he had these armaments in Prime...

    Anyways, Soundwave's weapons are as follows:

    Super Ninja Moves
    Laserbeak
    Thinking With Portals
    and lastly, Trolling

    Soundwave in TF:p rime is kind of the ultimate "left hand" operator for Megatron.
    He is quiet (and how!) and observant. He also deals with the technical and easily
    overlooked details of things on his and Megatron's behalf. Basically he fulfills the
    functions of a top-notch executive officer.

    In comparrison Starscream was the field and combat officer (right hand) till
    he blew it by pissing his boss off a dozen too many times.

    As for his abilities...
    Well other than having a command link to their ship and more importantly all
    the command codes to control it. He seems to be just a damn solid close
    combatant. He has his mini-con for ranged combat but I am sure he would
    do just fine with a ranged weapon as needed. In the 'Aligned Continuity'
    Soundwave was a gladiator that gave Megatron a serious run for his money
    in a "Submission" bout. So he knows how to fight and fight well.

    I have seen the munitions pylons on the "Reaper" before, I wish there was a
    way to apply them to the figure, but his put together so tight tollerances
    wise that I do not see a way ot install them without permanently altering
    the figure or just looking tacked on.

    He is just a badass ninja...that is all.

    And I like to think...that if he ever talks in the series....he would talk in a monotone(?) voice.(Sort of like HAL or something.:) )

    Soundwave's primary armaments are viruses, Trojan horses, worms, scramblers, communications interception equipment and the like. He has more conventional weapons, too, and can scrap pretty good, but electronic warfare is his forte.

    SMH at the people who think non-verbal + formidable combat skills = ninja.

    THIS. Why would he be called Soundwave if he didn't create the SONIC PAIN WAVE?

    I predict a sub-plot for Soundwave...
