"You got it Swift!" With that Maverick jumped up and transformed into his jet mode and began to hover upward. As he rose in the air, he began to open fire where Thundercracker was shooting from, making the seeker have to seek out new cover.
But Maverick didn't notice what was going on above him. The spiders that were jumping from the tops of one coil-tree to another were stringing together a web that began to cover up the opening. Maverick bumped into the web and began stuck. "What the frak?!"
Transforming in to robot mode, Maverick's back was stuck against the web. The more he struggled the more he mad it worse. "Awww come on! Your frakin' slaggin' me!"
"You think you got problems?" Powerplay was still cover in Cyber-Spiders. Unable to get them off, they had covered his body in small bites, slowly draining his energon. He swung himself around as much as possible in tank mode, but any spider that did fall off, a new one took it's place.
And finally, Skywarp revealed himself as his cloak ability was either drained or he turned it off. He ran over to Jetfire's body where the spiders he instructed to grab the downed Autobot were beginning to wrap up his body in their own webbing.

Retroblazer hesitated for a second when it began to kick off, hoping that the situation could be contained. But when his comrades began falling to the cyber spiders, he could stand by no longer. Following Quickshot's original order, he hurtled towards Starscream through the undergrowth, ignoring the bites cutting into his armor, but when he heard the apparent mission commander's Quickshot's panicked tones, he didn't even hesitate in changing direction and sprinting towards Jetfire, using his axe to cut swathes through the mecha-insects. When he saw Skywarp approaching Jetfire, who was slowly becoming trapped, he gave out a roar and used all of his weight to crash full on into the seeker, pummeling him with the pommel of his axe. Using the internal comms, he contacted the fliers. ++COMM-VAlKYRIE-SWIFT++ "Val! Swift! Grab Jetfire and get him out of here, I've got Skywarp!" ++END COMM++

"Why you little runt! I'll rip out your process circuits!" Yelled Skywarp as Quickshot jumped on his back. The momentum from Quickshot's leap almost knocked over the much larger robot but all Quickshot did was make the seeker lose his balance. Which was enough to distratct Skywarp just enough to allow Retroblazer to bowl the Decepticon over. With Retroblazer on top of Skywarp, Quickshot was feeling a little more pressure then just trying to lead the Raiders.
"Awww hexanuts! That does it!" Powerplay was getting annoyed as their was no end to the spider swarming him. He sped up one more time and caused himself to turned over several times, crushing and knocking off spiders in the process.
On his back, Powerplay couldn't move. With a transformation as fast as he could do it, Powerplay was in robot mode. Drawing his neutron rifle, he began to take out as many spiders as he could. "Now this is more like it! Just like the training room back at the base!"

Indelible switched on his thrusters and hovered up from the ground slightly trying to take out as many cyber-spiders as he could with his Neutron Assault rifle. As he did he watched the others try and extract Jetfire. In the distraction a spider managed to jump up onto his foot causing indelible to try and shake the thing off as more clambered on top of each other trying to jump up and attach themselves to him..

Retroblazer hadn't seen Quickshot jump onto Skywarp's back. He almost hesitated in his assault, but by the time he was slowing, he had already crashed into his adversary. Seeing Quickshot being crushed underneath him, he stifled a laugh and rolled, now with Skywarp on top of him. Dropping his axe, he swung back, gripping the seeker with one hand and swinging a fist with all his strength into the side of Skywarp's head. "Settle down, slagheap!"

The strength of Retroblazer's punch set Skywarp rolling across the ground and up to the coil line. Which the seeker out of the way, Quickshot and Retroblazer were now able to get to Jetfire who's body was almost completely covered up in webbing. Before freeing him, they would have to content with the spiders that were swarming all over him and attempting to pull him into the coil jungle.
As more and more Spider's jumped on Indelible, the weight began to pull the aerialbot down, making in fall into the net right above Maverick. It was then Maverick heard Paraphus on his comlink and reacted. "WHOA! WHOA! WHOOA! Careful when you aim that thing!"
The plasma blast tore through the webbing, leaving a hole in between Maverick and Indelible and killing a couple of spiders. The combined weight of the two Autobots and the spiders on the weaken area tore a bigger hole as the two robots fell from the artificial ceiling and hit the ground. Spiders following after them and more beginning to cover up the damage hole in the webbing. Maverick tried to fight off any spider close to him but found it hard as the webbing remained stuck to him, making it hard for him to move.
Powerplay saw his comrades fall and noticed what the spiders were up to. With the ceiling almost covered up, the spiders began to make their way down the coils where they began to make a web wall around the coil-line.
"Their trying to trap us in here!" Yelled Powerplay as he figured out what the Decepticons were up to. He began to run for Indelible and Maverick as spiders swarmed them, blasting away spiders as they tore in to his steel skin. "Awww I didn't want to die without scars anyways!"
Swift was able to enter the opening and avoid the spiders, but he had to content with Thundercracker and Starscream. "There Thundercracker! Take him down before he reaches Jetfire! Then we'll teach Jetfire that he picked the wrong side!"
"With pleasure." Replied Thundercracker, but he couldn't help but to wonder if he was on the right side.
Torque and Valkyrie continued to fight off the spiders successfully, however they had a problem. They noticed that the spiders were working on sealing them off from the rest of the group with the top of the opening being sealed off
Swift stopped abruptly when he saw the two Seekers. He immediately sprinted to his left, circling the pair as he raised his rifle. He fired a trio of bursts at Thundercracker when he heard Starscream give his order.
Torque swore. He looked around for a way out. From his vantage point, he was higher up than the rest of the Raiders, but in danger of becoming trapped.
+++COMM+++ "Frag it! These damn cyber-spiders are trying to cut me off! I'm going to try and get above their webs." +++COMM+++
He slashed at another spider as his cloak failed. He turned and ran before leaping at the nearest coil tree and starting to climb.
With Swift taking care of Thundercracker, Indelible got up and dusted him self of, picking up his Neutron Assault Rifle and swapping it for his Energon War Axe, and stuck it in a couple of spiders nearby. "We're being sealed in!", warned the Autobot, "If I can just get one click spare without a cyber-spider on me, I'll try and cut the web above us! I need a few click to charge my axe up. so let's try and keep the spiders at bay.."
He began to wonder what he'd got himself into,. He wanted to trust jettfire, but Starscream, cyber-spider, and now they were being ambushed by seekers, making it very difficult to empathise with Jetfire. Added to which they were saddled with a rag-tag bunch of misfits, one with delusions of leadership for their group. Too young, too cocky and likely to be dead before the next solar cycle was out.
