Construction

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:

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.

Kabam! Studios have reached out to us to let us know that Cyclonus has arrived in their Transformers: Forged to Fight mobile game! He is modelled on his recent toy as released in the Generations Combiner Wars line.

Image

"Kablam! Studios wrote:About Cyclonus:

Faction: Decepticon

Class: Tactician

Resurrected by the same dark energies as his master Galvatron, Cyclonus leads a mighty armada provided by Unicron himself. Loyal, patient, and skilled, Cyclonus is ultimately the counterbalance to Galvatron’s chaotic rule.

Stats and Abilities:

2-Star:

Health: 1907
Attack: 149
Max Rating: 544

3-Star:

Health: 4682
Attack: 315

4-Star:

Health: 12169
Attack: 818
Max Rating: 3520

Basic Abilities: Dark Energy, Dark Field, Discipline

Gain a Bar of Power
- Each bar of power grant’s Cyclonus a Dark Energy Charge, increasing
Attack Rating by 22~30% for 6 seconds.

Dark Field
- When Cyclonus gains Dark Energy or completes a full Melee Combo with Dark Energy active, his Dark Field pulses.
- The Dark Field inflicts Dark Burn, dealing 20% of Attack as instant Energy Damage and has a 60~76% chance to Nullify an enemy buff. If the opponent is Unstoppable this chance increases to 100%.
- If an opponent with an Unstoppable buff Dashes toward Cyclonus, he instantly gains Dark Energy, Nullifies the Unstoppable buff, and inflicts Stun for 1.5 seconds.

Discipline

- After being struck 5 times by Melee Attacks, Cyclonus gains a 18~28% Physical Resistance Buff for 7~9 seconds.
- After landing 6 Ranged Attacks, Cyclonus gains a Ranged Bonus, increasing damage from Ranged Attacks by 15~25% and Projectile Speed for 5~7 seconds.
- After landing 10 Melee Attacks, Cyclonus gains a Melee Bonus, increasing damage from Melee Attacks by 15~25% for 5~7 seconds.

Signature Ability – Dark Servitude

Pledging loyalty to Unicron has imbued Cyclonus with unimaginable power.
- Dark Burns inflicted by the Dark Field deal 20~120% more damage.

Special Attacks:

Special 1 – Cosmic Edge
- A blade, honed and deadly as its wielder.
- 100% Armor Piercing.

Special 2 – Galaxy Gun

Outgoing – Hand of Chaos – Galvatron
- All Decepticon Special Attacks gain +2~15% Special Attack Damage and +2~15% Critical Damage.

Strong Match-ups:

Motormaster
- Motormaster’s Unstoppable will become a disadvantage when fighting against Cyclonus and his Dark Field.

Optimus Prime (MV1)
- Cyclonus’ sword will pierce even the toughest armor, stopping the Autobot leader from making his epic last stand.

Weak Match-ups:

Galvatron
- The master of chaos, Galvatron, will be able to deal most of his damage at range, avoiding the Dark Field. It is also important to note that Galvatron’s Unstoppable cannot be Nullified.

Shockwave
- Shockwave can ensure that Cyclonus never reaches a bar of power to gain his Dark Energy.

Recommended Modules for Cyclonus:

Robot Resources
- Robot Resources will push Cyclonus to gain Dark Energy faster.

Harm Accelerator
- Not taking damage from Cyclonus will be a rare occurrence, add another constant tick of damage and watch the opponent wilt.

Love that the promo pic is basically a thumbnail for a Thew video.

Also, nullifying Unstoppable is a good deal, but do you really run into it outside of Demo bots, who Cyclonus is weak to anyhow? Tantrum's the only non-Demo bot I can think of off the top of my head who uses it regularly.

MotorMaster uses it more than Tantrum.

Cyclonus seems great against MotorMaster. If you don't mind me mentioning, I have a video of them fighting.

ABOUT MEGATRONUS:
Faction: Decepticon

Class: Demolitions

One of the Thirteen Primes created by Primus himself to defeat Unicron, Megatronus is a being of unparalleled strength.

Relic of Immortality

Once per fight, when Megatronus hits 10% health he activates the Matrix of Immortality in addition to his other Relics for 10 seconds.

Last Hit of a Light or Medium Combo

+40% Critical Chance.
Heavy Attack

100% chance to apply Dark Burn, dealing 40% of Attack as instant Energy Damage.

+2~8% Attack
Outgoing – The Fallen – Megatron, Megatron (RotF)
All Decepticons on your team gain +2~5% Armor while fighting Decepticons and +5~20% Power Rate while fighting Autobots.

STRONG MATCH-UPS:
Everyone – There is no bot that Megatronus cannot overpower.
Megatron – Megatron will find his namesake needs no buffs to be formidable.
Optimus Prime – If Optimus is relying on help from his Chief Medical Officer, the Relic of Obedience will put a stop to that notion.

WEAK MATCH-UPS:
No One – No one stands as a serious challenger to him that is the embodiment of power.

Re: G1 Wheeljack Joins Kabam's Transformers: Forged to Fight (1986461)
Posted by Skritz on September 27th, 2018 @ 9:27pm CDT
So we have a Dreawave character loosely based off/an evil counterpart to the Last Autobot who ended up the mthical predecessor to Decepticons and gained an egyptian theme from a Live Action movie now having a Machinima based design...with the almode of Movie Megatron. Anyone else really amused and equally weirded out when he started off as this?

Image
At this point is he even still technically 'The Fallen'? Because I have the impression Hasbro tried to (and in a way, suceeded) in erasing the original conception first by hijacking the name and history of the character before giving his role in the franchise to something of their own making. At this point, Megatronus and The Fallen may as well be distinct entities within the franchise. >:oP

"This version of Megatron is based on his Machinima Power of the Primes body, and features a new never-before-seen Jet mode."

Just a minor correction to this description... he's not a version of Megatron. He's an entirely different character. Like it also states in his bio he is "One of the Thirteen Primes".
