TS seems to be doing more strafing damage to me, which makes me wonder if strafers even need a weapon, or if a weapon will boost their damage output


strength doesn't affect strafe damage at all. unarmed/weapon/ram damage only

each point in strafe gets you more shots in each strafe, each point in FP increases each shots damage, so if you're outnumbered it's best to lean more on strafe than FP, if you outnumber them it's best to go on FP, ultimatley you want to max both.

and while you may not need a weapon, at best a third of your attacks will be strafe, so you might aswell try to boost the remaining 2/3rds as much as possible too, strength and a decent weapon are the way to do that

Gotcha.

Edit: I just got enough xp to get my first upgrade for Tx-58349, and there's a Robot Abilities upgrade....

What is this? I've never seen this before :?

Neither one works for me. I swear it's impossible for level 0s to get anywhere these days.

Ok I took the advice and equipped my troops with x-rays as soon as they got out of CR. They all just got out of Arena matches. While only one of them won, they all survived :D I look forward to seeing how they do with x-rays.

I actually switched to doing the missions just because of my lvl 0. Being a Decepticon, half the time I have no competition in the missions, so my lvl 0 picks up free xp

It is a grind, but if you are constantly outnumbered, use xrays and avoid to Destroy Wheelie as much as possible and you'll get to level 1 eventually.

My bots are great both on arena and missions but I prefer missions because they give me much more fun. I send my team on arena only when missions are empty (no enemy).
When I came back to HMW (it was few days ago) I was surprised that my ramers are that good on arena :shock: - OK its fun, for short time but on lvl4 you can only earn 2k xp...
And in missions there is something named 'team work' :D I remember my begining, how it was cool to win an outnumbered mission... It always stays the same :)
