Kabam has added an all-new Predacon into their Transformers-themed mobile fighting game, Transformers Forged to Fight, one of Megatron’s loyal comrades – Scorponok!

Signature Ability: Regenerative Toxin

Fueled by Scorponok’s Venom Charges, Scorponok’s hidden robotic enhancements enable him to Repair.

Prowl

  • Prowl’s shotgun is much less threatening while he is Dazed and confused.

Weak Match-ups:

Grimlock

  • With very few Ranged Special Attacks and the ability to Purify Bleeds, this Predacon will fear a different kind of Dinobot.

Shockwave

  • Shockwave’s ability to Heal Block will put a stop to Scorponok’s Regenerative capabilities.

Recommended Modules for Scorponok:

Repair Module

  • This Mod will allow Scorponok to out heal his opponent’s damage output.

Transwarp Cell

  • This mode will encourage the slippery Scorpion to assault his hapless opponents with frequent, hard to dodge, heavy attacks.
