    Why didn't he use the rust cannon with whom he killed Ironhide on Prime and the rest of the autobots in the final fight?

    Did he loose it? Was it damaged? Seriously what happened?

    He didn't really need it. He was kicking all the Autobots asses fine without it.

    Yeah but he could have ended it a lot quicker.

    If I had to choose to fight 10 people with a sword or with a machine gun you can bet your ass I'd go for a machine gun even thought I'm quite skilled with a sword myself. It's quicker, safer and more effective.

    I wish we could've at least got a scene of some Autobot destroying it or something...

    I think he used it to kill Ironhide as a suprise attack. It might have been destroyed, but I think he forgot he had it.

    He does shoot Sideswipe in the face with a red & silver gun during the battle. It remains to be seen if it was the Rust Cannon, as Sideswipe suffered no lasting effects. Though if it was the same gun, why didn't Sideswipe become rust in the wind?

    He has it against Optimus' head in DC, before his "We were once gods..." speech. And as I mentioned above, he does shoot Sideswipe with a similar gun.

    It seems that the rust only take effect from the inner of a bot, so 2 shoots or a wound is needed

    So if he wanted to fight honourably why did he sucker punch Ironhide from the back? There was no honor in that.

    He needed a distraction to run away, killing off Ironhide was the best way to do so.

    Sentinel's thought: "Farewell, Ironhide! Now if you excuse me, I have a plan to set in motion!"

    He fighted honorably against OPTIMUS, a PRIME, his apprentice, other case entirely.

    He probably thought: "Now THIS is a worhty opponent!" *pulls out his shield*

    Like Ratchets gun. He shoots missiles and bullets. Thats probably it.

    Also Sideswipe is shot in the shoulder. The rust canon mode probably takes more energy to do. So its more of a "Use only if a kill has to be made" setting.
