    While I'm late to the party, I'm surprised no one has done this. There are a few DS threads, but they're all scattered and incomplete as well as non-campaign specific, so this can be the home for all the info you could want.

    As mentioned, since I'm late to the party, there's a long way to go, so I'll update this as the info becomes available. Besides the info, this can also be a discussion of hidden objects, fight strategies, etc.

    I didn't really keep notes, but this should be a start:

    Damn you you finished this faster then I did. If you wanna change the title I can do this for the Autobots and the decepticons you missed as well.

    LOL, well, that's pretty much the major thing I've done for the last 24 hours.

    I've got Megs to level 20 (and he can practically solo the game now, especially with the right disk), Shockwave, Skywarp, and Cyclonus aren't too far behind. Though I just haven't located Onslaught and Drag Strip, though there are some car niches I need to go back through the storyline levels to explore.

    I've completed the first Autobot mission included, but since you can't use your cons to play in the level, I'd rather concentrate on the cons version first then.

    I can't believe I kept missing Onslaughts disc! Found him today.

    Now that just leaves Drag Strip and a bunch of Discs. Plus character updgrades and the Autobot missions/Arena.

    Hopefully more then myself and Blackdrop have this game!

    I hope I got the level right! :dunce 

    There's a section where you have to go through a maze to find two buttons at the top of large ramps to proceed. There are destructable walls and spaces for cars to zoom under the walls. The disk is behind a destructable wall in that area.

    Got Drag Strip. I almost feel stupid for not having found him sooner. I've updated the first post yet again, as well as with Cyclonus' second ability.

    I'm assuming I'm just missing disks, now that I've got everyone, from a few story missions now. Reviving the Dark Energon Project is at 80%, Activating the Uplink is at 66%, and Omega Supreme is at 75%.

    You have to go with a car/truck combo to find him, because it's a destructible wall behind a low passage, or vice versa.

    Barricade is (IMHO) the easiest of The Arena battles to beat. Besting him in Stadium 6 gets him for you. Onslaught, as my first post shows, requires only a heavy to obtain.

    I can't find 2 disks, one in "Reviving the Dark Energon Project" and one in "Omega Supreme". In Reviving, I've got the one at the start, where you just turn around and go a few rocks over. In OS, if I'm not mistaken, the one I've got is the one in the corner before you enter the room to boss fight Jetfire.

    Last Friday I unlocked and played with the Autobot Arena battles and missions, if there's interest in all that, I can add it to the first post, but if people don't care, I can skip it.

    Thanks. If anyone knows what Megatrons second ability is (when you hit Endurance 9 or whatever), or some of the other powers, let me know. I didn't think I'd be doing this, so I didn't keep track of a lot of it, just played the game, so there are a ton of upgrades, discs, and whatnot that I didn't document even though I have it.

    I'm still missing two discs from the story, one in "Reviving the Dark Energon Project" and one in "Omega Supreme". In Reviving, I've got the one at the start, where you just turn around and go a few rocks over. In OS, if I'm not mistaken, the one I've got is the one in the corner before you enter the room to boss fight Jetfire.

    BTW, since I keep repeating playthroughs to level up some of my non-goto 'cons, I'm finding some of them are surprisingly well done.

    LOL, I found the disk in "Reviving the Dark Energon Project", wow, what a doozy. In the room that's flooded with Energon with a bridge across it, that gets the mini-cutscene warning you not to touch it, on the left pillar is a switch (A flyer makes it easy to spot in alt mode), which drains the Energon. Then there's a small gap for a car to drive in, and the Data Disk Small Swarm is there.

    Now the only Decepticon item I'm missing is a Disk that is hidden in "Omega Supreme".

    Hey in case anyone needs to know how to unlock Ironhide here you go.
    First you have to unlock the "Rescuing Zeta Prime" Bonus level.
    Second: get to the third room. It's purple and has two Large Dark Energon Columns smack dab in front of you when you enter.
    Third: Use a Light/Car character and drive into the low passageway on the Left. The disk to unlock Inronhide is in the center of the room. The right passageway has a data disk.
    Ironhide is actually pretty cool. He is armed with a Plasma Damage Machine gun, and a Solid damage Giant Mace.
    Oh, the room prior to this one has a Breakable wall with a Energon cube inside it. Just look to your right at the start.

    In the level "Rescuing Zeta Prime" on the Autobot campaign/Decepticon bonus level, I need help with finding the last disk. Can someone tell me where the disks for that level are?

    Disks aren't always in the same location between the campaigns and the bonus missions on the other version. Having gotten the Autobot version for my Birthday, I was quick to notice that.
