He grinned at the little comment made by the bystander as he while keeping his arms engaged with the pneumatic punches he changed his hands to a pair of buzz saws as he began trying to punch holes into the same slug after cuttingholes into their armored carapace

The blast from Wreckrotor stunned the slug, allowing him to approach and get at it with his buzz saws. As Wreckrotor craved his way into the massive beast, the slug twitch and let loose a terrible noise from it's mouth that must have been a scream. The scream signaled to another slug that it needed help. Another slimey beast came slithring at Wreckrotor faster then it was thought possible for something so big. It knocked Wreckrotor off his feet and through the cracked wall of a building. The slug kept going until it crashed through the building that Hauler had landed on top off, causing the building to start to cave in. Deadlock saw parts of the soon to be destroyed building start to fall his way. Meanwhile Lightstream found herself slowing down as parts of her body were covered in slime. The suddenly the tail end of a slug smacked her from behind, causing her to tumble across the ground.

OOC: sorry jazz I'm still new at this "stupid slugs" I fall to the ground, energon was leaking out of me like a waterfall. "scrap! scrap!" it hurt too much for me to stand, the slug was just about to eat me, but I turned around just in time and shot the dame thing, more slug slime splats on me. "well this is just prime, ugh" I hold my side, for it hurt the most, I use my staff as a cane and pull my self up to my feet, and Hubble to safety. I make my way to one of the shops and hid just under the door way, and I try to go on my conlink to get help " hello? this is cyberninja Lightstream hurt badly, requesting help now, can anybot hear me?" I wait for an answer.
Wreckrotor was stunned at the momentum these creatures could muster and while he was pinned to a wall that didn't buckle, he had his bak pressed against it while using his arms and feet to press at the slug to avoid crushing him to dust. He then after far too long remembered he had GUNS, as a result he transformed his left arm into his plasma cannon and began to charge it up, he also wrenched both his legs onto the bottom jaw and his right hand on the top jaw to attempt to force the jaw open as he screamed loudly, not realising his commlink was on "OPEN WIDE!!!" Firing a fully charged plasma cannon shell into te maw of the slug

Hauler felt the ground move - literally as the building began to shake and collapse beneath him, staggering to the side of the building and losing balance many times; he stumbled over to see the the slug crashing through the building. "Hey looks like my rides here!", chuckled the bot and jumped of the top of the building before it most certaily would collapse and crush him to death.
++ "Deadlock this is Hauler, any chance you can help the dame bot? As much as I'd love to be the hero, I've kinda got my hands full with the slugs and trying to stop these bots getting themselves killed!"++ proclaimed the bot as he rode the back of the slug. ++ "I'll watch your back if you can, still got a few tricks left in me yet!"++

There was no answer for a while, and more slugs are crowding where I was in the door way, I need help soon or I'll die of energon lose." scrap! is this thing even working?" I call one more time, but if no one answers I'm on my own. " yo is anyone out there?, come on someone answer already?......." nothing, the slugs are getting closer by the mint and I can't take more damage then I all ready have. I pull myself up again using my staff and slow walk to the back of the store. I take out my blaster and set it for long rage fire, I start firing at them to keep them back, of course they pop when their died so I'm getting more slime me, "this is just not my cycle" I finally made to the back and went out the door and down the ally way, also making a trail of energon drops be hide me. I manage to make it out of the ally way and in the street, and blasting some slug on my here. " pant, pant, where the primus am I?" my vision was starting to become blurry, and I'm getting a very big headack. I look down at my self, I drop my saff, I'm covered with slime and I legs gave in and I fall to the ground. "ooookkk......now... I really ....need help" then everything went black.

Deadlock pulled himself unsteadily to his feet, dusting himself off and laughing heartily as he saw Wreckrotor launch back into the fray. As he began to regain his bearings, he heard Hauler's voice crackle in his comm, and whipped his head towards the direction in which Lightstream had fled. He could hear the femme's ever weakening calls on the emergency channel, and his hands began to ball into fists. ++"On, it, Hauler! Let's see if these old bones o'mine can't stand up to few more of these things!"++ With that, he charged, skirting along the side of the street to avoid the melee and the emerging slugs. Approaching the store into which the Autobot had escaped, he saw a slug besieging the doorway, and with a fierce battlecry, he began to rain down huge waves of magnetic energy on the creature, his strength draining at an alarming rate. He commed Lighstream, reaching out to his wounded comrade. ++"Sign off, Autobot! This is Emirate Deadlock, I'm comin' too you now! What's yer position?"++

I slowly start to wake up "....what?...." I sit up and turn my head around, I still have that headack " Autobot! this is Deadlock what's yer position?" " what?....who's...there?.."I grab my staff and my gun and wondering where that voice is coming from. I look at my energon meter, down by 76% "scrap" I still can't really see anything, and I can't stand at all. "Autobot where are you?" it finally clicks, "oh...my..conlink.." I put my hand to my head to hold it still," ..this is.... Lightstream...I read you..", " thank the alspark, where are you Auobot?" I look around, this would be much easier if I could see, I thought to myself, I think I can see where am "I'm near...the spar parts...store... on..matrix street...I think.."
He scanned the air cautiously soon after his reading were off the charts. "Am I that far behind enemy lines?"Sometime wasn't right the reading he was getting back weren't matching up with the data log. The ragged metal cloak around him whipped and snapped as he turned back to his bike. He grabbed the handle bars as he transformed. Leaning his face in the gauges as the speedometer panel split opened. He slid his mechanical face in it as the wires and sound connected to the corresponding links and cables within him. The Bikes engine came to life from a rev to a sputter of engine power and and robotic shifts in the jets and carburetors. The headlights flared then dimmed revealing a solid aura of a purple bean with a center sphere the shifted from one side to the other like a cyclopes. He rose into a wheelie as the front wheel shifted and lowered down beside the other. His joints and ligaments unfolded and formed his calves and mechanical light armored legs. His air intakes shifted back and against his face as steam released the pressure. His face plate lowered from under his head light forming the face of a bat eared like transformer.
He grabbed his metal cloak and threw it around him hiding his Decepticon emblem. He soon heard sirens, they were close and he was way deep in enemy lines. On his radar it seemed the autobots had there hands full bad thing was if they were in radar range so was he and every unidentified dot his radar picked up. Was a bad time for his radar and com to be glitching on him. He felt the ground shake as he lost his very balance on his wheels falling back. His vision was a puzzles as it all slowly came back into a perfect picture. Only to see a slug closing down on the very spot he fall upon. Out of reaction he would try to dodge as he would activate his phase shift emitter. If successful he could slip past unharmed just hope his emitter was more reliable then his radar and com.

The slug that Wreckrotor was dealing with took the blast from his fusion canon and in a way swallowed it. The beast moved backwards away from the Wrecker and struggled. Then before it could be computed, the slug vomited all over Wreckrotor. The slug turned about and began to retreat with smoke coming from it's mouth, leaving Wreckrotor behind to deal with the slime, fuel and other unmentionable fluids that covered his body.
Hauler found it easy to ride on top of the slug, after all legend had it that they slugs were actually suppose to protect the centre of Cybertron and would assist Autobots to do so. As Hauler found his footing, he noticed something on top of the slug's head. A small squared box, emitting a dark red glow. It didn't look as if it belonged on the slug. Then the glowing light changed hue and was no yellow. As the box changed colour and the slugs began to howl. They then stopped what they were doing and began to travel off towards the north, all together and in a herd like fashion. With Hauler directly in the middle!
Henovatron saw that his move worked and the slugs pass through him without harm. However, it would seem that the slime trails that slug left behind had a strange effect on his phase shift emitter powers. Within seconds Henovatron was solid again.
Lightstream saw that the slugs were moving away from her. Deadlock had managed to drive the slug away and was actually a lot closer then he thought to the downed Autobot. But then he saw something else. Another transformer who's body looked as if it had military upgrades like an Autobot would receive. But he didn't recognize him at all.
As the slug's began to move away, down the street a squad of Autobot security agents began to arrive. Leading the way was their commander, Streetwise
He transformed and began to survey the area. [COMLINK]"All Autobots in the area report in! Someone fill me in on what's going on here? Space slugs? Are you yanking my hubcaps?! Their suppose to be on our side, someone not feed them? Ok, so those things are like 5 times the size of Grimlock, making them around 16,000 tones each in weight. And their armour is pretty good too, won't be an easy fight. Their not that slow either and they have outer fangs taller then Optimus Prime. As you can bet their sharp too! How many you say? At least 60 of them? Headed to icon? Ok, make a blockade and I'll gather up what Autobots I have here."[/COMLINK]
Streetwise, already logged into the Autobot network, tapped in to see which Autobots had already engaged the slugs. [COMLINK]"Sound off! Wreckrotor, Lightstream, Deadlock and Hauler! Report and fall in! Hauler? Hauler your signal is getting farther way, where are you going? Hauler? Hauler! Report! Fall in!"[/COMLINK]
The journey on the back of the slug wasn't exactly smooth as he headed further and further towards the border, to add to his woes - being accompanied by a heard of the things all around him.
++ "This is Hauler, sir. I'm not going - they're taking me! So to speak, well it seemed a good idea at the time!"++, the bot peered down at the little box on the slug that flashed different colours.. ++ "I gotta" FZZZZZZT! "to ya!.." BRRRRRRRKKK! "..a plan!"++ Hauler looked down at the little yellow box on the slug's back as he rode along wondering if he could get the thing off and what would happen if he did. For sure he was no engineering expect and delicate wasn't exactly his forte. "Well here goes nothing", thought the bot to himself and tried to rip the box thing of the creature's back..

The box began to flash bright red and gave Hauler a small zap of electricity. The shock was just enough to cause Hauler some pain. But clearly this box was not apart of the genetic makings of the slug's DNA. It was as if someone put it there....!!!
He phased through avoiding a near offline experience. The slime seem to effect his shift emitter for the most part he still wasn't in the clear. He had to play his cards right as he clung to the body of the slug. It was far to big to take on on his own, the slug seemed to dig as it still trying to finish of the remain of what it thought it devoured. He soon was on the move as his metal cloak rippled the slugs pattern of attack had changed as it moved on. Something is up with these slug need to figure it out. Soon a convoy of slugs seem to be on the move and it was the best to stay on. Just his luck it seemed he wasn't the only one caught in the the heavy traffic. It was far but when he zoomed in he could see a bot in the heart of the herd of slugs. Just what I need Autobots, as if these slug weren't a big enough problem.. Since the slug were drawing closer together he would have to play it smart and choose his actions and word carefully.
Hauler ripped the little blinking box of the slug's back and stashed it away in a compartment within his armor, "Better keep this thing - might come in handy for trying to work out these slug's beef."; he thought to himself.
"Just where are you going anyway?! Where you all taking me?! Why an Earth did I have to go and jump on this thing's back!" he pondered to himself out loud. As the herd continued, the bot continued to be jiggled about and the metallic armor wasn't exactly making it a comfortable ride. As if to answer his questions, he could see a giant slug ahead, although appeared to not be moving. Maybe it was a meeting point/ Maybe the other slug was dead, either way he was sure he was going to get his answers soon. "Maybe it's a tribal thing!" he thought, as well as wondering what the slugs would do if the other was dead.

After the box was ripped off the back of the slug, Hauler then began to notice that the slug he was on began to slow down. Then the slug completely stopped moving and was rocked back and forth as the rest of the herd passed it by, bumping it hard as they continued on. Hauler was then able to see another mechanoid (Henovatron) on top of a slug racing towards him.
As the herd reached what looked like a dead slug, they all turned in a near perfect 90 degree angle and continued towards the downtown area of the city. Mainly the financial district.
