Retroblazer remained calm when he heard reports of Decepticons sighted. He simply loaded his shotgun, and crawled forwards to the front of his cover. Spotting the hostiles at the bottom of the ravine, and didn't really know what to make of this new development, as it didn't match the tip they'd been given. He scanned his friend's positions, trying to identify the most vulnerable bots, until he heard Torque over the comms, who seemed a little nervous. ++COMM-TORQUE++ "They're headed right up the ravine into the ambush, Torque. Don't worry, piperunner- I got your back." ++END-COMM++

***COM***'Negative Raider 6, you'll give away our position. Raiders be patience. If this isn't our group then we let them pass. I want that canon, maintain surveillance.' ***COM***
As the small group of Decepticon moved on, the odd little cybercar that Quickshot saw entered the ambush area. A small camera popped up form it and began to survey the area. Powerplay saw it and hoped that all the radiation in the are was enough to shield his team from the scan.
And to any Autobot Raiders that had a view of the ravine, they could now see three more Decepticons appear. What then followed was the massive barrel of a recoil canon. The sound of metal gears turning could be heard, as the canon was on top of transport with tank treads carrying it. More Decepticons walked at the side of the canon with a few actually on the huge weapon, acting as guards and look outs.

Max Convoy looked out form his hiding spot and watched as the small cybercar moved forward. ***COM***'All right Raiders, listen up. Anyone on higher ground, find a position to nest in and target the guards on the canon. All those on the ground, were going to hit them hard, up close and personal. Engage them at point blank range once I give the signal. Hold of until the enemy squad in inside the ambush area.***COM***
Powerplay watched as some Decepticons passed in front of him. ***COM***'You got it Raider Leader.***COM***
+++COMM-MAX CONVOY+++ "Raider 5 to Raider Leader. I'm moving to higher ground to make better use of my sniping skills." +++COMM+++
Torque activated his camoflague circuit and slipped out of his hiding place, almost as if there hadn't been anyone in there to begin with. He spotted a nice tall piece of debris and moved around behind it and began climbing. He deactivated his camoflague and reached the top of the angled bit of debris. he deployed his weapon and peered out at the Decepticons.
Swift deployed his weapon and made ready to attack. He had a slightly elevated position and his weapon had a zoom function. He closed his optics for a moment and tried to clear his head. He didn't particularly like combat, but he had to. He was just glad that he was good at it.

Annoyed with Valkyrie, Powerplay pipped up. ***COM***'What would you like to do about it Raider 9? Add a few more Decepticons to the count to your liking?***COM***
***COM***'Can the chatter both of you!***COM*** Demanded Max Convoy. ***COM***'We don't have an exact number on how many there are. It won't matter anyways, they're not going to last for very long. I'm making my move.'***COM***
Max Convoy moved out of his hiding spot just as the cybercar pushed ahead. He circled around a trash shuttle as most of the Decepticons had entered the ambush area with the canon coming in as well.
As if to signal an omen, rain drops began to fall. Max took extra care in sneaking around to a spot where he could launch the attack, he didn't want to slip and give the Decepticons a target.
The canon and the tank carrying it came to a stop. The leader of the Decepticon squad then ordered his troops to get the weapon into position. Max Convoy realized that this crew wasn't going to waste anytime. And nor should he.
Taking out his energon hammer, he ignited his melee weapon and charged it up. Then with a mighty yell, he let his battle cry to signal to the rest of his Autobots to attack. 'RAIDERS! FORWARD AND ATTACK!'
The Decepticons seemed to jump out of there steel frames when they heard the thunderous voice of Max Convoy. The closest Decepticon to Max, a scout who stumbled about trying to bring his weapon about to aim at the charging Autobot commander, had his head crushed in between his shoulders as Max Convoy brought his energon hammer down upon. The rest of the Decepticons scattered about and fired in Max's direction, as the Autobot moved to get out of their line of fire.
Powerplay reved up his engines as soon as Max Convoy gave the signal. The Autobot charged out from his hiding spot, sending scrap metal every where. The main body of Decepticons turned their attention on to him and peppered him with bullets. Wasting no more time, Powerplay fired his canon into the center of the group.
Naturally, the Decepticon moved out of the way. But what they didn't know was this was planned. It was Powerplay's intention to send them blindly running in to the hands of his fellow Raiders. ***COM***'Hehe, yeah! Just save some of me this time gang! Ain't like I like sharing to begin with!***COM***
Valkyrie rolled her optics at Powerplay's remarks.
~Of course the tank would joke about there being more 'Cons...~ She thought to herself. ~He has the armor to take it.~
"Aye... Sir." she replied to Max Convoy.
She could have easily defended herself, but she chose her battles... and getting into a war of words with her leader, was not one of them.
She then watched as the mayhem started.
It was everything she had not to immediately take to the sky, but she was patient... there were still too many 'Cons still standing.
Keeping both optics open she fired her first burst of three shots at one of the gun crew landing all three in the chest area, then ducked back behind her cover for her rifle to recharge. She quickly peeked her head around the other side to confirm the kill.
Seeing the 'Con down and motionless, she ducked back behind her cover.
~One for me... a bunch to go...~ she thought.
Her audio sensors picked up the hurried footsteps of one of the scattering 'Cons, she readied her blade and waited.
When the signal was given, Paraphus took a deep breath, shut his optics tight then threw the scrap pile his was hiding in onto a nearby decepticon who he then punched repeatedly before taking his plasma cannon and firing it point blank at the bots head.
He then quickly moved behind cover and opened fire.
Quickshot aimed for one of the Decepticons on the weapons. He kept his cross hairs trained, and when the shot presented it's self, he let 3 bullets fire off one after another, trained on the 'Con's head. The first causing his active camo to deactivate.
Torque watched through the scope of his rifle as the Decepticons scattered. He spotted one of them still atop the cannon. He took a couple of moments to take aim and fired. Almost instantly, the 'Con fell from the cannon minus a head. Torque cycled another round into his weapon and took aim at one of the fleeing Decepticons and fired at his lower leg. The 'Con's leg was blown off and hit the floor. He managed to crawl a few meters before a follow-up shot from Torque put a big hole in his torso.
Swift heard Max Convoy's battle cry and leapt into action. He spun around the corner with his rifle raised. He zoomed in and fired 3 bursts and watched one of the Decepticons drop, his torso filled with holes. Swift then zoomed out and moved closer, looking for another target.

Retroblazer took a deep breath, then loaded his shotgun and broke cover, leaving through the cockpit of the transport. Seeing the advancing Con's, he outstrecthed his palm, focused for a few seconds, and an energon barrier rippled from his hand and appeared in front of him and his comrades. Stray rounds were absorbed and dispersed in the grey surface. Without another word, Retroblazer rolled sideways and loosed of a shot with his scatter blaster, all the while looking for a bot needing support...
