Basic Abilities: Upgrade, Shock, Power Leak, Repair

Construction

Each time Wheeljack Transforms he begins to Construct a random Upgrade for 4 seconds. [Max 3 Upgrades]
If Wheeljack Is struck by a Critical Melee Hit while Constructing, the Construction Fails and the Upgrade is lost.

Upgrades

Defensive Upgrade: 10~20% Damage Resistance and increases to the chance Special Attacks will inflict Stun by 20%.
Offensive Upgrade: 15~30% Attack Rating and increases the chance Special Attacks will inflict Shock by 20%.
Power Upgrade: 10~20% Power Rate and increases the chance Special Attacks will inflict Power Leak by 20%.
If Wheeljack is struck by a Melee Critical Hit from a Special or Heavy Attack the newest Upgrade constructed will be removed.

Success

If Wheeljack Constructs 3 of the same Upgrade type he randomly Repairs between 10-20% of Max Health.

Signature Ability – Force Shield

Wheeljack’s emergency Force Shield allows him to survive both potentially deadly attacks and catastrophic mishaps in the lab.

75%, 50%, 25% Health

if an enemy attack would reduce Wheeljack’s health below 75%, 50% or 25%, Force Shield will activate, reducing all damage from enemy attacks by 100% for 2~8 seconds.

Special Attacks:

Special 1 – Prototype

Wheeljack puts his latest invention to the test. What could go wrong?

60% Chance to inflict Shock for 3 seconds.
30% Chance to inflict Power Leak for 2 seconds.
10% Chance to deal Stun for 3 second.

Special 2 – Iterate

Some improvements may be prudent.

Randomly Replaces all Upgrades.
60% Chance to inflict Shock, 30% chance to inflict Power Leak, and 10% chance to inflict Stun.

Special 3 – Perfect

All outcomes meet the desired metrics for success.

All Upgrades become the same type as the first Upgrade.
60% Chance to inflict Shock, 30% chance to inflict Power Leak, and 10% chance to inflict Stun.

Synergy Bonuses:

Mutual – Allies – Optimus Prime, Grimlock

+2~8% Armor

Mutual – Enemies – Bludgeon, Motormaster

+2~8% Attack Rating

Mutual – Upgrades – Bumblebee, Jazz

Wheeljack provides all Autobot team members a random Passive Upgrade each fight. Upgrades grant either +2~8% Attack Rating, +5~10% Damage Resistance, or +5~15% Power Rate for the duration of the fight.

Outgoing – Brain Gain – Shockwave

Shockwave has a 10~30% chance to inflict Stun for 2 seconds when inflicting 3 or more Shocks simultaneously.

Incoming – Brain Drain – Shockwave

25% Increase to Attack against Demolition Bots. Shockwave only gets this benefit if all bots on his team have this synergy.

Strong Match-ups:

Ironhide – Ironhide’s low Critical Rating for his Melee Attacks will make it difficult for this demo bot to remove Wheeljack’s upgrades.
Galvatron – Galvatron’s powerful burst damage will be contained by Wheeljack’s Force Shield Signature Ability.

Weak Match-ups:

Bumblebee GS – Bee’s ability to Shield Break will ensure the Force Shield is only a minor nuisance.
Drift – Drift’s frequent Critical Melee Hits will throw a wrench in Wheeljack’s plans.

Recommended Modules for Wheeljack:

Tech Console – The tech console will improve Shocks, Shielding and Repair.
Transwarp Cell – The Transwarp Cell mod will ensure that Wheeljack is fully Upgraded by making him use Heavy Attacks more often.

I've heard that Megatronus was found in the game files recently, so you never know, it could be the ROTF version seeing as Hasbro don't really call Megatronus "The Fallen" any more.
