Profile: Ransack requires no more rewards for his toil as a Decepticon than the heaps of twisted steel and smoldering rubble he leaves in his wake. Nothing delights his optics more than the sight of tumbled buildings and scorched earth, and nothing excites his olfactory sensors more than the aroma of burnt Autobot. Though most of the Insecticons pride themselves on their cunning and innovative tactics, Ransack is much more direct in his approach and follows two simple maxims: if it stands in between you and your prey, destroy it; if it doesn’t stand between you and your prey, destroy it anyway. This method of hunting down Autobots is not quiet or clean, but Ransack doesn’t much care. It gets the job done, and the resulting square kilometers of destruction resulting are a beautiful thing to Ransack. Besides, the other Insecticons are around to help Ransack when subtlety, stealth, and smarts are required.
Abilities: Possessing impressive strength and durability, especially for a Transformer his height and mass, Ransack is arguably the most combat-oriented Insecticon. In addition to allowing him to leap up to two hundred times his own length, Ransack’s powerful legs can crack reinforced steel like plywood with a single kick, and he is capable of generating sonic vibrations that shatter audio receptors and ferroconcrete alike. Adding to his firepower in robot mode is a powerful concussion blaster cannon, and he protects himself with a highly reflective, energy-absorbent shield. In both modes he can generate intense blasts of electricity from his antennae, up to and even exceeding a magnitude of eighty kilovolts.
Weaknesses: Ransack is powerful but not terribly precise. His warrior skills are quite average, and given that his usual tactic is to simply blast away until there’s only wreckage, he can get into quite a bit of trouble when faced with opponents who possess strength as well as savvy. Compared to most of his Insecticon brethren, he is not very smart or subtle, and to a large degree depends on them for guidance.
