Special Attacks

Synergy Bonuses:
1. Enemies with Rhinox

3. Weaponsmiths with Mixmaster
Waspinator gains an increased Critical Chance on Heavy Attacks when paired with Mixmaster. 6~15% Heavy Attack Critical Hit

Strong Match-ups:
Ultra Magnus
Ultra Magnus’s Resistance s make him one of the tougher bots in the game, but weakening the Resistances of bots is Waspinator’s specialty. Resistance down and Nullification of Resistance s make the Wasp a great counter for the Autobot leader.

Arcee
Waspinator’s Signature Ability to nullify des allows him to stave off death from bleeding once per fight. Arcee’s low health also becomes a serious disadvantage when facing a well timed Special Attack from Waspinator.

Weak Match-ups:
Rhinox
Rhinox’s Shield offers the perfect counter to Waspinator’s punishing Special Attacks. The Shield’s ability to withstand Waspinator’s Ranged Attacks ensure it is available when the Wasp unleashes his highest damage.

Mirage
The quickest way to mitigate Waspinator’s powerful Special Attacks is to deny him Power. Mirage’s Power Drain mode will allow him to keep Waspinator from unleashing his full damage.

Recommended Modules for Waspinator:
Offense: Superconductor-1000
Waspinator has some of the most devastating Special Attacks, and the Superconductor 1000 helps him use them more often, and with less resistance.
The Superconductor-1000 is exclusive to the Raid Store.

Defense: Repair Module
Waspinator's Signature Ability gives him more opportunity to heal up with the Repair Module's abilities, helping ensure he sticks around for fight after fight.
The Repair Module is found in the Premium Module Crystal.

Utility: Paralyzer
The chance to Stun gives Waspinator's Sting more time to shine by keeping opponents from escaping while they're vulnerable.
The Paralyzer Module is exclusive to the Alliance Crystal and Alliance Missions.

    Awesome thanks!

    On a side note: How come 4* OG prime and 4* IH are not in the Pbc?

    Also, what is resistance DE?

    Sorry, that should say Debuff. So for instance, his Heavy attack should read: 100% chance to instantly inflict a 20~28% Resistance Debuff, amplifying damage for 5 seconds.

    They also had their own special crystal, so you can expect them to hit the PBC at some time in the future as well.

    It decreases the opponents resistance. Which helps you do more damage to them.
