Strategy

Commander

Wheeljack has a low health and attack rating, but with three types of upgrades, he can adapt to different situations. Try going for three defensive Upgrades against high-attack bots like Brawlers with Melee Attacks. With three Power Upgrades, he can repeatedly win the Power race while repairing at SP3 and Power Leaking the opponent.

Wheeljack's Force Shield can be activated an unlimited number of times, so along with upgrade repairs, A skilled Commander can keep Wheeljack in top shape. The Force Shield is especially potent with the Nano-Repair Mastery; while the shield nulls all damage, a little bit of repair can keep his health from dropping below the shield activation percentages for the duration of the Nano-Repair.

Opponent

Conversely, Wheeljack's Force Shield can be troublesome, especially if he has Nano-Repair in Raids and Arenas. The shield does not protect against damaging debuffs, so use Bots that deal frequent Bleeds and such to breach the shields.

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. However, be wary not to get Burned.
  • Megatron (ROTF) - The Demolition king won't be able to deal his massive criticals if Wheeljack can activate his force shield since the impair charges doesn’t bypass the force shield.
  • Mixmaster - All the massive damage that Mixmaster grants with his specials will be all contained by Wheeljack's force shield but be careful not to get Acid.

Mods

Weak Match-ups

  • Anyone with damaging Debuffs - Damaging Debuffs simply ignores the force shield and it will be punishing for even commanders which rely on the nano repair mastery.
  • 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.
  • Shockwave - The Decepticon scientist will still be able to inflict his deadly shocks through Wheeljack's force field, and prevent him from Repairing if upgrade construction was a success.
  • Kickback can inflict T-Clog, preventing Wheeljack from upgrading. This Insecticon can also consume Wheeljack's Power Leaks and Shocks unless he’ stunned. Kickback will definitely enjoy this meal.
  • Cheetor's Feral Strike and powerful Bleeds ignore the Force Shield. Also Heal Immunity, so if Wheeljack gets three of the same upgrades in a row, no healing for him!
  • Bonecrusher - Wheeljack hates Bleeds interfering with his Force Shield. Guess where these Bleeds come from?
  • Starscream and Cyclonus - Wheeljack’s force shield can be nullified and it will add more damage after the nullification is over plus Cyclonus’s dark field can bypass the force shield.
  • Megatron - Wheeljack’s force shield can be stolen if megatron fuses a debuff. Megatron can also fuse a shock debuff which will ignore the signature ability. This can be punishing for commanders when they rely on the Nano repair ability which the force shield will be stolen over and over again.
  • Grimlock - Burns will breach the Force Shield and Shocks and (if he's on a Harm Accelerator) Bleeds will be easily Purified.
  • Galvatron and Megatronus - Despite the class type advantage the two demolition bots can still interfere through Wheeljack’s force shield with their dark burn abilities to prove that they are the real masters of the demolitions. This also goes for other tech bots with shielding abilities which dark burns ignores shielding as well as armor buffs to show that demolitions can be superior to a Tech bot in a rare case plus Megatronus’s relic of obedience can prevent Wheeljack from activating his force shield.

Mods

  • Keep Wheeljack away from the Harm Accelerator at all costs. This Bleed ignores the Force Shield.

Recommended Modules

Defend your base with Wheeljack and these Mods!

  • 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.
  • Many players seem to like pairing him with a Harm Accelerator. Indeed, it can boost the Shock damage he can inflict on Specials, and on Special III, he will heal while the opponent slowly but surely wilts. Add another Bleed stack and raiders will be ensured a major setback.
  • The Paralyzer is One of Wheeljack's early Immobilizer modules that leaves opponents dazed and diffused. Should work great, because we all know Wheeljack's inventions are always aces. Right?
  • The Repair Module gives an additional Repair boost with Wheeljack's near-impenetrable Force Shield.

Notes

  • His design is based on TakaraTomy‘s Transformers: Masterpiece - MP-20 Wheeljack toy, but the "Lancia" text, the "539" and all of the sponsored logos were removed (but curiously kept the Alitalia "A" and color scheme) to avoid licensing issues.
  • Wheeljack had a significant bug with his Offensive upgrades. They increased his Attack Rating exponentially based on his current Attack Rating, rather than his base Attack Rating as it was meant to be. This made Wheeljack waaayyy more powerful than he should be; A maxed 4-Star Wheejack could deal over 10,000 damage in one hit! A a bug-fix was promptly pushed on August 14.
  • Due to bugs with Wheeljack's Montthy Objectives resetting or not being available, all Commanders were given 110,000 Wheeljack Chips as compensation.
