- Weapon: Oxidating Laser
Shockwave did not verbally acknowledge Razorclaw’s response. It was understood that a certain, minimal amount of time would be allotted for the purposes of recharging fuel reserves now that they had been able to satisfactorily bring these anterior generators back online. Shockwave had calculated that maintaining their output even at the current, paltry-grade energon that was being produced would not be able to be sustained for any significant length of time. That, however, was not a primary objective of their mission, either, so Shockwave had quickly turned his attention to back to the operation at hand.
Stepping away, there was a shrill, metallic cry and an unfamiliar crunch underneath the purple mech’s feet. The cycloptic Decepticon looked downward to notice that a cyber-rat had managed to find itself unfortunately, and fatally, underfoot, no doubt attracted to the increased energy signatures in the area, amongst other potential lures. Shockwave bent over slightly, examining the creature more closely. In another time, it would have been unheard of for a creature such as this to be found anywhere near the functional levels of a Decepticon power source. It showed no major signs of exterior wear, indicating that it had avoided the more corrosive aspects of Cybertron’s atmosphere for some time. If cyber-rats had managed to infest the area, there were likely other mechanisms that had managed to do so.
Continuing forward, it was not long before Shockwave approached the vicinity of Razorclaw and the other Predacons, all in various stages of refueling.
“Declarative: sufficient time has been allotted. We will proceed onward immediately. We are unlikely to be the only sentient mechanisms within the facility. Current threat level—insignificant.”
