Transformers Universe Autobot

SCATTERSHOT

Allegiance: AUTOBOT

Sub-Group: TECHNOBOT

Function: TECHNOBOT LEADER

First Comic Appearance: HEADMASTERS #3

"Decepticons are like rust spots- they're ugly and they can pop up anywhere!"

Profile: Scattershot leads by his actions, not his words. This brawling, bragging berserker's idea of strategy is to wade into a Decepticon patrol with all barrels blazing and not withdraw until has out of ammo or out of enemies, whichever comes first. And he expects his followers to do the same. Anyone who disapproves of his tactics he considers a "tin-plated buckethead." At times, given his rude, gruff manner, Scattershot seems more like a caricature of a career soldier than a real one - But this blustery, often comical demeanor can't disguise the valiant warrior underneath-one who will shed his last drop of fuel, if necessary, for the Autobot cause.

Abilities: More than any single ability, Scattershot is known for his stamina. He'll continue fighting even after his joints are wracked by metal fatigue. In vehicle mode, he's equipped with a powerful 700 megavolt pulse cannon in his nosecone. Wing-, side- and turret-mounted guns shoot an awesome array of sonic, thermal and artillery shells. He can fly at a maximum speed of 1,900 mph, with a range of 10,000 miles. In battle station mode, he can utilize the same weaponry with even more precision once he deploys his omni-directional radar screens. In robot mode, he carries a 500 rounds-per-minute automatic acid-pellet gun, which can turn an enemy robot into a pile of slag in a matter of moments. With his fellow Technobots, Scattershot combines to form the super-robot Computron.

Weaknesses: Aside from collapsing due to exhaustion because he's pushed himself beyond the point of endurance, Scattershot has no specific weaknesses.
