    So, I ran a search (searched for "DS Barricade" which got me some useful tips on other game aspects but nothing on Barricade) and found no help.

    I can't beat Barricade on the "Autobots" DS light game. I'm playing as BB but can't beat the prick. He either blows me off the edge of the bridge, or beats the robo-crap out of me. Plus, everytime I lose, I have to start that damn chase all over again!

    Any tips to beating him? I'm really starting to hate Barricade A LOT.

    Did you try finding a video on youtube?

    Sorry if it doesn't help or whatever...I don't have the game myself. Also, try checking GameFAQs.

    Don't try fighting hand-to-hand. Basically, the way to beat any boss on the DS game is to run in circles around them mashing the heavy weapon button.

    The Boss fights on the DS game sucked ass.

    I can't run in circles, that's the problem, the damn D-pad is so friggin' small.

    Is the Decepticon DS any easier/more fun?

    Decepticons is about 250X more fun, this is coming from someone who has both.

    - Autobots story line involves carefully going around stuff being stealthy. Creeping about in vehicle mode and protecting/escorting stuff.

    - Decepticons, if its in the way, it gets blown the f**k up. Tearing things to shreds and mangling anything that dares cross you.

    Oh and G1 Starscream > Skydive. Easily.

    Beware though, 2 boss fights in Decepticons are hellishly difficult.

    D-pads too small? Can't say that was ever a problem to me.

    Man, I got the Decepticons DS, but now I'm stuck on the Military level, I can't beat those fucking towers! Also, I'm good up until I get to the part where you have to beat the tanks... what tanks? There are none! Just choppers, jeeps and green tanks. (though aparently not "the tanks", since blowing them up gets you nowhere)

    The worst part is that I have to keep scanning the damn chopper each time I lose, even though I scanned it way before that mission.

    Just keep hovering around, strafing left + right, tanks should spawn after a while. The only mission in Qatar that caused me serious difficulty was Blackouts, if you can do that, you'll be fine.

    Everytime I look at this thread's title, I think " When did transformers get their own internet service?" :lol

    Okay, I'm bring this thread back from the dead (more like a coma, but anyway) because I still can't get past "Decoy". (plus, resurecting a partially dead thread is better than starting a new one for the same reason)

    There are three different kinds of "tanks". All of which I have fought, and still the counter say "0/5 tanks". Are their walkthroughs or something that could help me with this?

    Thanks.

    Have you tried destroying both the tan tanks and the green armoured vehicles? I'll boot up my DS and see if I can find out.

    Well, I just played through the mission again, after blowing up the planes and helicopters, I had a 'Threat Level 3'. Tanks were all over the place and blowing them up was easy. They counted on my Tally.

    Did you fight them in Robot or Vehicle mode, you might not be able to score in Robot mode?

    I knew it! I think there's something wrong with my DS or there's something I did wrong early on, because I'm blowing all kinds of shit up, and I stll only get the threat level 2. Now I know what I'm doing wrong.

    Thanks a ton man. Now it's just a matter of staying alive that long with those damn turrets shooting at me.

    the only boss i had trouble with in that game was megatron. i never beat him, i just gave up after a while... although hearing frank welker threaten to rip out my optics was fun.
