    Was it Starscream who took the opportunity of confusion and shot Megatron before fleeing the battle or it was just the army?

    In the movie? Nothing is ever shown or stated regarding the matter. As it stands in the movie, it's possible either way. Schrodinger's Attack. Starscream both attacks Megatron and doesn't attack Megatron, until it's proven one way or the other. It makes sense that Starscream does that, given how he more or less effortlessly blends back into the squad of F-22s, confusing them all. Even once they get a lock on him, changing back and forth constantly and moving around is enough to make anyone dizzy, so by the time they engage Megatron, it's not out of the realm of possibility that Starscream is also joining in on the fun. But as I said, nothing is shown definitively either way. I know a lot of fans have their own canon where Starscream is definitely one of the jets that attack, including me. :D  Just makes the characters and situations a bit more fun.

    As eagc said, Reign of Starscream has its own explanation.

    Hardy Har Har! Very funny guys! You know, when someone asks a serious question, he expects a serious answer!



    Starscream was being chased by the Raptors, and I don't think they'v split their team so one chases Starscream and the other shoot after Megatron. The way I saw the scene was Starscream destroyed most of them, and the rest went after him, and all of a sudden a Raptor fires a missile at Megatron. I found it odd that they went after SS and then switch to Megatron. The first shooter had to be Starscream.

    Going strictly by movie canon (all three of them), has Starscream ever shown any indication of backstabbery against Megatron? He's slimy, sure, and cowering and pathetic and gets beaten around by Megatron in ROTF, but the worst thing he ever does is abandoning Megatron after the latter gets killed by Sam and the cube.

    Megatron would have known starscream shot him, and he would have killed starscream, so I say it was just the humans who shot Megatron

    In all seriousness no. Starscream did have the perfect chance to attack him. But he passed it up by exposing himself to the other F-22's and attacking them destroying all but 3, one of which broke off to chase him away and the other 2 attacking Megatron.

    If anything he saved Megatron since the 2 jets full payloads weren't enough to kill him. But if all of them and Starscream attacked him they might have killed him outright, allowing the All spark to remain undestroyed.

    So no. This indicates he didn't want Megatron dead.

    I like to believe that Starscream aided in the attack on Megatron.

    Yeah, while I like the idea that Starscream shot Megatron, we never really see that attitude in either of the other movies, so I don't think he really did. I wish they would've actually pushed that story line though. Starscream should've been killed by Megatron in ROTF, then his indestructable spark could come back during the 3rd.
