BioEdit

Aptly named for both his cement mixer alt form and his advanced skills in concocting chemical weapons for the Decepticons, Mixmaster has been linked to being a part of the mighty Devastator.  However, reliable footage of that rumor has yet to surface.

StrategyEdit

PlayerEdit

Mixmaster is not the most favored Demolitions Bot by most Commanders, but he can deal tons of damage if you're patient and he is played right. First, fight and sidestep until Mix has his maximum amount of Special Damage Buffs and Critical Damage Buffs. (having the critical and Sequencer masteries will help with the damage)

More importantly, make sure the opponent has an Acid or Burn debuff and the maximum amount of Special and Crit Damage Buffs on him before unleashing a Special 2 or 3, or else the damage dealt will be rather flat.

OpponentEdit

Try not to sidestep in the middle of his II or you'll take heavy damage. His I is pretty easy to dodge (sidestep), but an AI Mixmaster's III is pretty devastating, so to say. With his Special Damage buffs Mixmaster is quite the beast, even on his I and II!

To make Mixmaster's special damage less potent, Nullify his buffs (Starscream, Sideswipe; Ultra Magnus, Screamer is a quicker option compared to Swipe, whose Nullify is only on a Special III).

Strong Match-upsEdit

  • Bumblebee - Mixmaster looks to deliver much of his damage during Special Attacks, allowing him to bypass much of Bumblebee’s evasiveness. Mixmaster's use of Ability Block will also greatly reduce Bumblebee’s chance to avoid incoming attacks.
  • Ultra Magnus - Mixmaster's Acid can corrode Magnus's Resistance Buffs.

Weak Match-upsEdit

  • Rhinox - Rhinox’s Shield caps the maximum damage that can be done to him in a single hit, making it a powerful counter to Mixmaster’s punishing Special Attacks.
  • Sideswipe - Sideswipes’s ability to Nullify Buffs makes him more powerful in a stand-up fight against Mixmaster and weakens his eventual Special Attacks.
  • Grindor - Mixmaster’s Ability Block will hamper Grindor’s Buff generation leaving him weaker to Mixmaster’s potent special attacks. As Mixmaster can no longer Ability Block, Mixmaster's Special Attacks will not be as effective.
  • Optimus Primal - Mixmaster relies on Critical Damage to dish out devastating amounts of damage, but Primal's Critical Armor will prevent that.
  • Starscream - Despite the type advantage, The coward's ranged criticals will prevent Mixmaster from dealing serious damage. Much to the deserter's relief and lower health rating.

Recommended ModulesEdit

Devastate enemy raiders with Mixmaster and these modules.

  • Laser Guidance Module - Mixmaster depends on his arsenal of projectile attacks for most of his abilities and damage output, making the accuracy and damage boost from this Module a natural fit.
  • Strange Refractor - The Strange Refractor increases the likelihood that Mixmaster’s unique Block ability is triggered and even gives him the opportunity to counterattack.
  • Security Module - The additional Buffs provided by the module help protect the variety of Buffs Mixmaster already generates, and increase his resilience so he has more time to generate those Buffs.
