Using 5 Star Awakening Programs

Here's the dilemma; I have 4 of the 5* awakening programs, and one is going to expire in 3 days, so its use it or lose it time. Also, I have a 5* awakening specifically for Tech bots, but that's not time sensitive. So, I'm looking for suggestions/advice on who to awaken. Here is a list of my 5* bots:

Already Awakened:
Starscream, Bludgeon, Windblade, Dinobot, Tantrum, Galvatron, Megatronus, Mirage, Kickback, Cyclonus, Shockwave, Waspinator, Prowl, MV1 OP, Grimlock, Cheetor, Barricade, Ultra Magnus, Rhinox, Soundwave, Grindor, Hot Rod, Motormaster, Jazz, G1 Megatron, Bonecrusher, G1 Bumblebee, and Mixmaster.

Not Yet Awakened:
G1 OP, Sideswipe, Arcee, Nemesis Prime, Ironhide, Ramjet, MV2 Megatron, Blaster, and Optimus Primal.

I want to hold on to at least two of these awakening programs because I've got the feeling that a new bot is coming around and want to be able to awaken a new bot coming down the line. I'm also about to get 30 monthly missions completed which means a crystal to get a random 5* unlocking program.


  • Nemesis Prime, without a doubt. Especially since we might not see him again in a long time, while most of your other unawakened 5 stars are available in the regular crystals... Nemesis isn’t much without his sig, in my opinion.
  • Totally agree with @Transformator79 :)
    If you have an unawakened exclusive bot (nemesis, thundercracker, scout bee ) use it on them. Because these bots are not in the crystals

    Nemesis for sure. Even if a new bot is on the way (I appreciate your optimism, by the way), he/she can be awakened by one of the 3 remaining Generic Programs. At the current state of the game, stocking 2 Generic Program is quite enough to handle any surprise.

    Surprise me, Kabam.

    Nemesis for sure. Why is he even still unawakened? :D The bots I’m saving awakening programmes for would be Megatronus, scorp, Jazz, windblade, nemesis prime, thundercracker. Already used on wheeljack and scout bee. Also did bludgeon for sentimental reasons.
  • I'd go Nemesis or OGP
  • I hadn't even thought of NP because he's an exclusive, but yeah, that makes a lot of sense. My reason at first for not considering him has been because I haven't got a handle on his play style yet. It took me a little while to adjust to how different Thundercracker plays from Starscream, but I just haven't gotten used to NP and I'm not crazy about his synergies either, but I'm thinking that's more because I'm just not seeing their usefulness.

    nemesis, everyone else is in crystals, ih and ogp become much more usefuk awakened but nemesis, and any other rarer bots should get the prigrams if you have them

    Use your synergies in the following Order:
    1. Nemesis Prime. Self-explanatory.
    2. Optimus Primal. You have four Beast Wars Bots duped, but not Primal? Although you can get him through the 5* Crystal, his sig is a nice repair ability.
    3. OGP. The sig enables bleeds during armor breaks.
    4. Ironhide. Sig is called Obliterate for good reason. SP2 and SP3 can KO/severely weaken MOST bots.
    5. Ramjet. Enforcers synergy.
    6. Rest as you see fit

    P.S. Save you tech sig awakening for Wheeljack.
  • Ok, I just finished my monthly tasks and now have another 4th of three 5* Awakening program to use or lose in the next 12 days. So, I'd appreciate any suggestions...here are the 5* bots I have that are not awakened/duped:

    Sideswipe, Arcee, Blaster, Ironhide, Ramjet.

    I don't really use Sideswipe or Arcee except for Arena. Blaster I haven't even used except for Arena after all my other bots are used and I'm waiting for them to be used again. I have G1 Prime, Prowl, Ratchet and Grimlock and another Autobot or two so I could build up Ironhide for a solid Autobot team. So far, I'm personally leaning toward Ramjet--Galvatron and Megatronus are better Demos, but Ramjet would bring out Starscream's seeker synergy into play, and Screamer is one of my all time faves.

    Fun note, I used chips to buy a dupe of Primal to get my last monthly requirement done. Doing that got me the extra Awakening program and the 5* shards it got me resulted in spinning the crystal and coming up with another dupe of Primal! And because I got Primal from the crystal, it got me the other monthly thing for 5* bots!

    Ironhide, because pulverized almost any bot with an sp2 is very satisfying
  • Definitely Ironhide
  • So you awakened OGP and MV Megs along with Nemesis from your original list? If so, another vote for IH here.
  • Ironhide 100%
  • MV Megs got duped by a couple of crystal spins, I didn't spend any awakening programs on him.

    Cool, thanks guys. Ironhide it is!
  • That sort of just happened. I took the advice and used my extra awakening on Ironhide. And since the 1st of the month came around and I got paid, I bought the energon deal with the awakening crystals--spun them and got a 5* awakening for a Warrior bot and a Demo bot! So...I guess this means I can go ahead and dupe Ramjet and Arcee.
