    I run out of health when ratchet reported there is still 75% completion on reviving...

    The health generator(s) both of them won't pop up after I guessed... using those weapons (popped up from the ground?)

    I thought I played on easy from the beginning , but it feels like playing in hard mode... need to double check what level I was playing...

    Itis hard. Yank the turrent off and get an oversheild from the room behind Omega and stay by him. Take down anything you can see. Warpath and Ironhide are useless since they get overwhelmed really quickly. Just make sure to revive Ratchet and grab an oversheild whenever you run out.

    Activate the rocket turrets up top when you can and use the main turret to take down the seekers, then snipers will drop in. Take them out and detach the turret to take out the ground units. Every time you get a tank guy with a turret pick his up.

    It is hard, by far the hardest part of the Bots campaign.

    Yeah just finished this part and it was tough. Did it with Warpath and had to learn where the 'nades were. I used overshield and health 'nades to make it to the end.

    Yea like Deceptigar said,the tunnel behind Omega has a healing turret,just transform and drive through there,keep heading there when you get hurt and you will be able to beat it no problem.

    Yeah, that tunnel behind Omega saved me numerous times. The shields and healing ray are practically vital to this level. I played as Warpath, and used his shield ability a couple of times when I needed to revive Ratchet without taking too much damage. And definitely try taking out the snipers first - they caused a lot of trouble for me the first few attempts.

    i struggled on that too, make sure you activate everything like the missile launchers, but I found using one nuclear launcher thing for the first two turret guys, and take thier turrets and kill the cars, then get the other launcher and take out the other two turret guys

    but always go back and get the overshields in the back room, you might not know thats there

    Levels like this one are as much about luck as they are skill. One character has energon barrier. Use that to protect Ratchet and keep on the move. Homing missiles can take out the flyers easily.

    Go to the back room and keep getting the shields. You will definetely need them.

    activate all markers, stay near the energon health stations, Also the alcove behind OMEGA SUPREME (sorry I've tried many times to type the name not in caps but just cant) has 3x Over shields and health station. Also grab the Brutes cannon after you take on out and turn it on the other one.

    Best strategy is stay close to him and absorb the fire,when the snipers come move to the high ground and melee them.

    Rinse and repeat.

    This stage pissed me off so much. Died over a dozen times until I found some co-op partners who knew what they were doing.

    This level was hard for me to, but if you thought it was bad on normal, you should try doing it on hard. I played as Warpath and pretty much targeted every con in the room, but that was right after activating the defenses on the bridge. The shield ability comes in handy in helping defend Ratchet. Also the nucleon cannons that can be accessed via the panels on the floor help for the bigger Decepticon brutes. Also, don't forget the shield boosts in the corridor behind Omega.

    Hardly impossible, use the overshields behind Omega, use the turrets dropped by the big guys and use a barrier to protect him from one side at a time.

    What difficulty are you on? I did it on hard and it only took me a handful of tries.
