The point of Airachnid?

I have a problem her.

She starts off as Arcee's rival when she first comes to Earth, and it's like ok that's her role... but no, then she becomes female Starscream. Wait, Starscream isn't female?

Then she's like frozen forever and a month..... Oh look she's out! She played a role in the plot!

Now, she's a vampire....

I don't know, it's like they randomly insert in episode to fill in plot holes or something. She doesn't seem to have a real defined role. Maybe she's all fan service? Which is fine, but she seems so random.

True that, woman are extremely complex creatures, I doubt I will ever understand them.

She is not a character, in my opinion. Filling the gaps is quite a good role for her.

Well I liked her for the fact that it seemed like she couldnt fucking die! Maybe originally in the idea she was to combat the murderoud arcee by being ae to escape most life threatening things. Female starscream ? Not really, she did want to get in good with Meg's because she was forced to rejoin but i doubt she would have cared either way so give soundwave a good scene if smacking her down . Then it was probably " hey this voice actor wants to leave so let's kill him off" airachnid, " hey we need a bunch on insecticons but under decepticon control! Hey freeze airachnid ! Hey we need to get rid if cylas and the insecticons? Hey vampire airachnid on a moon. She was the writers trump card cause you could do random shit with her and still be in character, she's a scapegoat character !! Hell they could probably have her turn into web shooting T. rex and make it believable, I'd buy it!

She was completely and utterly pointless, like many things in this show.

She was brought in to be the BAD GURL counterpart to Arcee, but was then put into storage probably because Gina Torres cost too much and then received a completely unresolved conclusion. The end

She became a vampire from the stress of the humiliation of having her ass kicked by soundwave, a cyber-period and a revenge bite of doom from zombie breakdown

What's the point of Breakdown? Or Bulkhead, or Bumblebee, or Arcee? None, the writers only use them in ways they deem would be most entertaining to the younger audience. Singling out Airrachnid is like saying one of the constructicons from rotf are more useless than the others.
