Transformers News: Transformers: Earth Wars Update: Bit of a Longshot, with Smoskescreen and Brake-Neck

Bah-weep-graaaaagnah wheep nini bong!



Project Nova research site is in ruins, Reflector is on the run and First Aid has gone missing. Meanwhile, the missing Nova Core is pouring radiation into the atmosphere...



Bit of a Longshot

Transformers News: Transformers: Earth Wars Update: Bit of a Longshot, with Smoskescreen and Brake-Neck



With First Aid missing, it’s lucky he didn’t go it alone. Smokescreen was ready to provide cover fire with his Sniper abilities for First Aid, and now he's forced to take center stage and get a handle of the situation.

Megatron’s lack of faith has prepared him for this potential failure, as Brake-Neck was assigned to secretly provide support for Reflector with his own Sniper abilities.

Smokescreen (Sniper)

Everything Smokescreen does is designed to mislead.

Nothing is what it seems, and every surface action has a lurking ulterior motive. Misinformation is the weapon he wields to wrong-foot and lead the enemy astray.

He even uses his affable nature to root out the deepest concerns of his fellow Autobots. And in car mode, his tailpipe emits a screen of thick black smoke to mask his maneuvers.

A true smokescreen.

Transformers News: Transformers: Earth Wars Update: Bit of a Longshot, with Smoskescreen and Brake-Neck

Brake-Neck (Sniper)

When it come reckless, Brake-Neck is in a class of his own. Opponents and allies think his head-on, who-blinks-first combat tactics are a bluff, that no one can be that wild and impetuous, but the truth is Brake-Neck really is nuts.

He doesn't care, and that's what makes him so dangerous.

Despite this, Brake-Neck is a bag of nerves, and sudden loud noises are prone to make him take off like a bat out of hell.

So, does the sniping ability have an increase in ability points per use, or is it just straight 3?

It's a straight 3, check ghost's video it shows it off.

That's where I got the question from. that feels odd that you can just keep repeating that at no ability increase

It took me by surprise, too. First 0 increase they've had, but considering how hard it is to use the ability...

That's odd... They've already got Offroad, strange that they'd include Brake-Neck as well. I wonder which will form a part of the inevitable Menasor?

Considering the current lack of Deadend, both Brakeneck and Offroad could be used for Menasor

That'd be an unusual combination, especially considering the colour similarities between Offroad and Brake-Neck.

The game models and color schemes are fairly differentiated in this case.

Just checking up. Still no luck on any good Autobot alliances?

I ended up being replaced in the Seibertron one due to the fact that I joined in the middle of some life stuff, which led me to being inactive for quite a while. I totally understand, though. They needed the space.

Well, I've gotten a 2* Brake neck and a 3* Bonecrusher from the event thus far. Pretty decent

Only 2* Brake Neck for me so far. I did take the plunge on the Deathsaurus bundle (large). Didn't get any of the promised bots BUT I did get a 4* Vortex, 3* Nemesis Prime, and enough Combaticon sparks to upgrade Bruticus to level 3. Just need a 4* Onslaught for a 4* Bruticus.

But we all know how much Onslaught loves me ...

I still need an Onslaught in any capacity. Plus a 3 or 4* Vortex to complete Bruticus. But I now have 3 for each combiner, so there's that...

My 4* Onslaught is nice and toasty; just 300k XP til 50. Love him. Just need Swindle & Vortex to upgrade Brute to 4*.

I got a 3* Galvatron and Breakneck from the event. My alliance has been done with the event for awhile - wish we could get more crystals...
