“Decepticons are like rust spots, 
they’re ugly and they can pop up anywhere!”

Profile: Scattershot leads by his actions, not his words.  Ths brawling, bragging berserker’s idea of strategy is to wade into a Decepticon patrol with all barrels blazing and not withdraw until he’s out of ammo or out of enemies, whichever comes first.  And he expect s his followers to do the same.  Anyone who disapproves of his tactics he considers “tin-plated slag-fer-brains!”  At times, given his rude, gruff manner, Scattershot seems more like a caricature of a career soldier than a real one.  But this blustery, often comical demeanor can’t disguise the valiant warrior underneath –one who will shed his last drop of fuel, if necessary, for the Autobot cause.

Abilities:  More than any single ability, Scattershot is known for his stamina.  He’ll continue fighting even after his joints are wracked by metal fatigue.  In vehicle mode he’s equipped with a powerful 700 mega-volt pulse cannon in his nosecone.  Wing, side, and turret-mounted guns shoot an awesome array of sonic, thermal and artillery shells.  He can fly at a maximum speed of 1,900 mph with a range of 10,000 miles.  In battle emplacement mode, he can utilize the same weaponry with even more precision once he deploys his omni-directional radar screens.  In robot mod, he carries a 500 round-per-minute automatic acid pellet gun, which can turn an enemy robot into a pile of slag in a matter of moments.  With his fellow Technobots, Scattershot combines to form the super robot Computron.

Weaknesses: Aside from collapsing due to exhaustion because he’s pushed himself beyond the point of endurance, Scattershot ha no specific weaknesses.

Other Appearances: Scattershot has not appeared again in any other generation of the TF Universe besides his G1 Technobot self.  There is another Scattershot character released in 2005 part of TF: Cybertron, but given personality differences, it is likely to be just a different individual with the same name.
