Strategy

Player

Hound may not have the strongest basic and Special Attacks, and his Burns are longer than stronger, but his Precision Ammo mode is useful in specific situations. Enemies can't Evade Hound's Precision Ammo ranged attacks. If affected by a Daze, Hound can Sidestep with this Precision Ammo. His only disadvantage is that he relies on his Ranged Attacks to connect to deal their maximum damage. Hot Rod is a safer option for Ranged Attacks and anti-evade through those Ranged Attacks.

Hound's Precision Special 1 is useful for disabling an opponent's Critical Rate, which is useful against Expert/Master Solo Mission Bots with deadly Critical Rate and Critical Damage mods.

In addition, Hound himself can deal frequent ranged Critical hits by increasing his Critical Rate and decreasing his opponent's Critical Resistance.

Opponent

Dodging Hound's Special II can be tricky, as it will fire almost instantly. The best (if not very effective) way to at least reduce its damage is Blocking. It is possible to sidestep all the bullets, but the grenade requires sidestepping at the right moment.

Strong Match-Ups

  • Barricade – Autobot Hound’s Precision Ammo rarely misses, making Autobot Hound the premier choice to dismantle this Barricade’s powerful Evasion Buff.
  • Mirage, Windblade, Slipstream – Their Heavy Attacks are notorious for being untouchable to Ranged Attacks, but that trick stops at Autobot Hound. Precision Ammo is not affected by abilities that would cause Ranged Attacks to Miss.
  • Blaster - Blaster will have a harder time to reduce Hound's Precision Ammo. And if he thinks he can absorb his Ranged Attacks with Absorption Shield, the Shield will be broken before Blaster knows it.
  • Kickback's Critical-based dinner won't be served when his waiter is Hound, serving him a zero-Crit Special diet.
  • Hot Rod - Acceleration Evades will do nothing to Hound's Precision Ammo.
  • Cheetor - The Maximal scout won't be able to make use of his evade buffs.
  • Hound's push won't be affected by Scorponok's Dazes - just sidestep with Precision Ammo. (8.0 and above)
  • Rhinox, Wheeljack - As of v8.4, Hound's Precision can break Shields from a distance.
  • Megatron (ROTF) - Bleeds and burns ignore Megatron’s armor and Hound’s ranged attacks will mostly win when it comes to ranged to ranged attacks.

Mods

  • Hound's Precision Ammo is completely unaffected by E.M.I Module.

Weak Match-Ups

  • Optimus Primal – Primal will completely resist Autobot Hound’s Powerful Critical Hits which means no burns for the maximal. Even though Hound can inflict Critical Resistance Debuff.
  • Soundwave – Soundwave has the ability to reflect Autobot Hound’s powerful Signature Ability right back into his bearded face. So does Jetfire's parry shield but no needs Signature Ability to be awakened.
  • Optimus Prime can break through Hound's armor.
  • Nemesis Prime too but he can copy the armor buffs and nullify them in return.
  • Megatron - A fused debuff means, Megatron will outshoot this warrior.
  • Grimlock - Bleeds and burns will fuel the dinobot’s rage.
  • Megatronus - Megatronus can break Hound’s armor and the relic of obedience can prevent Hound from gaining armor or any other buffs.

Recommended Modules

You're entering a world of Guns & Ammo with these Mods!

  • E.M.I. Module – The E.M.I. Module will punish any gunslingers who attempt to outshoot this warrior.
    • Raids: His Precision Ammo would not be affected by opponent E.M.I Modules.
  • Laser Guidance Module – This module will combine with Autobot Hound’s Signature Ability to punch holes through even the toughest opponent.
  • Superconductor 2000 - It is quite hard to completely dodge Hound's Gatling gun bullets and grenade.
  • The Harm Accelerator will enhance Hound's damaging debuffs.
  • The Security Module pads his protective vest.

Trivia

  • His vehicle mode is based on a Customised Mercedes Unimog Tactical Vehicle, but the logo is removed to avoid licensing issues.
  • In the film he also sports red crosses on his helmet and shoulders. Those were probably removed for the same reason.
