Over the Gulf of Mexico
Astrotrain was swinging around for another pass when he received the orders from Starscream. He was nowhere near as maneuverable as the seeker was so it took him a bit more time to turn around and come back to the platform. By the time he had transformed and landed Starscream was lying waste to the control room. Astrotrain joined in with some fire of his own, eliminating some straggling humans. It felt good to be on the frontlines, although slaughtering some flesh creatures wasn’t exactly a challenge.
The triplechanger turned to look over at Starscream. “Should I start collecting the…” He stopped mid-sentence as the group of Autobots materialized in front of them. “Slag!” He opened up on them with his rifle as he quickly moved towards some cover. This battle had just got a lot more interesting.
On the Oil Rig
Sunstreaker had a cruel smirk on his face as he materialized on the platform. No more meetings, plans or strategy, now it was just time to fight, to kill or be killed. That was his specialty, what he was built for. He took only a second to size up the situation around him. As soon as he set his optics on Starscream he knew what his target was going to be.
The yellow Autobot wasn’t stupid. He knew he wasn’t a match for the likes of Megatron or Shockwave. You needed one of the big guys to take on those powerhouses. Starscream was a different story. He was just another seeker with delusions of grandeur. He thought he was hot stuff, but he was just another one of the Con flying idiots. He would enjoy knocking him down a peg or two.
He dived forward to avoid the spray of fire coming from Astrotrain. He turned the dive into a roll, coming up on one knee as he leveled his rifle at Starscream and squeezed the trigger. A burst of fire went flying towards the seeker. He didn’t think he would hit the flier, but he would be ready for his next move.
“Geez!” Sideswipe shouted as they seemingly bounced down right into the middle of things. He ducked down as Astrotrain sprayed blasts at them. A quick glance around showed only Starscream and Astrotrain close to them. He nearly rolled his optics as he saw his brother already locking his sights on the head Seeker. Of course he would take the juiciest target for himself. Well, he would just find his own then.
The red Autobot activated his rocket pack and shot up into the air. He circled around the platform, spotting the various seekers strafing and circling it. He wasn’t really eager to repeat his earlier battle with Con fliers, so he picked a new target this time. He darted after Blackstar, firing his photon rifle at him. “Come on ya cowardly con, stopping running and fight me, if ya got the struts for it!”
Hellion could feel the thrill of battle sweeping over her as she came around again for another pass and saw the Autobots materialize on the rig. Now it was really a fight and not just target practice. She opened fire on the rig as she approached it once again, trying to strafe the Autobots before transforming and landing on the platform. While she was a weapons laden seeker, she always preferred her fighting to be up close and personal. It was the only way to truly satisfy her berserker rage.
She only glanced at the Autobots before picking a target. She charged at Ironhide. She’d heard of his reputation as a tough old veteran. She would enjoy disproving his name as she ripped the sparkcore from his chest. She launched a powerful punch aimed at Ironhide’s face with her right fist.
Firebat swept over the rig once more, pleased to see various explosions and fires dotting it. Many humans were also being sacrificed to the flames, but it didn’t quite feel like enough. The flames were challenging the seas around them, but it didn’t feel like a truly worthy sacrifice, not for his first one on this world. It needed something more special then this.It was then that he saw the Autobots materialize on the rig. It was as if his prayer to the flames was answered. Now he could truly honor them with a worth sacrifice.
The flamethrower swooped low over the rig and transformed. “You will all be worthy sacrifices to the flames! You honor them with your fiery deaths!” He yelled out towards the Autobots. He lifted his arms and flamethrowers at the closest one, Hound. “Rejoice as you are the first to embrace the flames!” He activated his weapons and sent a spray of fire towards Hound.
