gameinformer continues it's Transformers: Fall of Cybertron coverage with a new article entitled "Behind The Crosshairs: The Weapons Of Transformers". The article highlights many of the new weapons that will be featured in the highly anticipated sequel. Click here to get the low down on weapons like the "Gear Shredder", the "Dimensional Decimator", and many more. They have also posted the screens shots that we've mirrored below.

Fall of Cybertron boasts such a creative list of weapons that many of High Moon’s concepts feel like they would be at home in a Ratchet and Clank or Resistance title. Players can outfit themselves with one primary and secondary weapon – usually a damage-heavy explosive cannon. Both Autobots and Decepticons have access to every weapon in the game. Here are a few of Fall of Cybertron’s more impressive Saturday-morning specials. And be sure to check out these guns in action in the weapons gallery below.

The Upgrade System
Each weapon can be upgraded through universal munitions stations scattered around the planet. “We really made a conscious choice to make every upgrade a significant improvement, so one upgrade might increase your firing speed by 75 percent,” explains game director Matt Tieger. “We could have made the system so that there were a lot of upgrades that each improved your guns a little bit, but we wanted to make each upgrade feel like this giant thing. That way when players buy it they’re really going to feel the difference.” The great thing about this upgrade system? Players only have to buy each upgrade once, as every upgrade carries over to other characters whenever they use that weapon.

Just a quick reminder, Alex Irvine's Transformers: Exiles was released today.

Product Description
The epic battles between Optimus Prime and Megatron have long thrilled Transformers fans. But these two giants weren’t always great leaders and bitter foes. This new novel continues the electrifying saga that started with Transformers: Exodus, unveiling the origins of the conflict—the explosive events that unfolded before Optimus and Megatron arrived Earthside, forever altering the destiny of their kind.

Alex Irvine (Author)


Once allies, Optimus and Megatron are now enemies in a civil war. To prevent Cybertron from falling into Megatron’s hands, Optimus jettisons the planet’s heart, the AllSpark, into space, then sets out to find it with Megatron hot on his heels. Optimus is determined to defeat Megatron, bring the AllSpark home, and restore Cybertron to its former glory.

But a saboteur lurks aboard Optimus’s spaceship, and ahead lie lost colonies, some of them hostile. Optimus needs help of the highest caliber, but from whom? Heroes such as Solus, Nexus, and Vector Prime are just names from make-believe stories of long ago. Or are they? Maybe it’s time for Optimus Prime to find out. Maybe it’s the only chance he has to vanquish mighty Megatron.

About the Author
Alex Irvine is the author of Transformers: Exodus, as well as the novels Buyout, The Narrows, and A Scattering of Jades, and the novelization of the film Iron Man 2.

We jump into the time machine back to the year 2008, when Toys'R'Us put their Voyager Movie exclusives on the shelf. Not only do these figures allow the galleries to surpass the milestone of 2400 galleries, but they are also repaints of Cybertron Mudflap, and Armada Red Alert with Longarm. The toys we are talking about are Mudflap (not the same as the annoying one), and Inferno with Longarm. Both were released in the Allspark Battles packaging, but neither is painted with the notorious Allspark teal. Mudflap certainly makes a great Classics-verse Erector, while Inferno, at the time, gave new fans a chance at a mold originating in 2002. Both figures are also notorious for being shelf-warmers during their time, so much that they are both still available for purchase at site sponsor BigBadToyStore! (Mudflap/Inferno) Check out each figure's gallery by clicking their respective pictures or links below!
