    Hey everyone. Sorry I'm slow, but I don't know what Prime means in FOC. I keep seeing these parts that you can buy that say prime, prime 25, etc. Please let me know! Thanks!

    Theres a Prime mode you can unlock when you get max level on all classes. It resets your level to 0 and you lose all the unlocks you get from levels (but keep your armor sets).

    When all four classes reach level 25, you become "Prime" and they are all reduced back to level 0. If you level them all back up to level 25, you unlock everything that requires "Prime 100".

    You lose all weapons and upgrades, but not the armour parts you unlocked.

    That's good to know but you loose your custom classes though, meaning you'll have to remake all of your bots.

    Okay. So Prime 25 would mean I get everything to level 25, then go back and get one other thing (Titan, for example) to level 25 again. And Prime 50 would mean I got two classes to level 25 again. Got it. Thanks guys

    Yep, I love it.

    Seeing as ranking up in this game is easy, it's not that big of a deal. Just adds more replay value.

    Oh, and here I thought this thread was going to be about the story. Well, now that the multiplayer question has already been answered...

    My memory of the first game is a little fuzzy. If I remember correctly, Optimus Prime had already been rebuilt as Prime before Zeta Prime had died. But I'm under the impression that Prime is a title for the leader.

    Optimus was not the leader, nor did he have the matrix (yet). So why was Optimus a Prime before he was leader? What really makes a "Prime" and why is he the last? What does Prime mean?

    In the first game, Optimus was Optimus. Zeta Prime died, and then Optimus went to the core, and then it made him Optimus Prime.

    I think going Prime gives you shiny Gold paint, does it not? I've seen a few Primes (who were boosters) with Gold paint.

    I want to know how Orion Pax became Optimus, seems like that would have been a great encounter to have in the decepticon campaign back in War for Cybertron. Say, you play as Barricade, Demolishor, and Onslaught bullying some civilians when they get the alert to go blow up something from Megatron, and one of the civilians is Orion Pax and you knock some statue over on him or throw him into an elevator and blow it up, something like that.
