As the 'Con came around the scorched hull that Valkyrie had been hiding behind, it met a swift end being cut diagonally from shoulder to waist. It did not take long for it to go offline, as the spark chamber was cut into. The optics dimmed out and it fell to its knees, then forward.
~Another one down.~ she thought, as she switched back to her rifle.
She was about to get set to take out another sentry, but a flash of lightning casued her to look up.
When she did, there was their sniper... in full view. Her optics widened, realizing that he was an easy target.
~What code word can I say to make him realize he can be seen.~ she thought.
Lightning flashed across the sky again, which gave her the answer.
"Raider Nine to Raider Five... Lightning rod." she commed to Torque.

I've also seen Animated and intend on following Transformers: Prime
Torque was in the middle of reloading when he got Valkyrie's COMM message.
+++COMM+++ "Roger that Raider Nine." +++COMM+++
He shifted his weight and spotted the tower in question. He carefully scanned the area and found the sniper, who appeared to be looking for him. Torque cursed, he'd forgotten the first rule of sniping, shoot then reposition. With the sniper in his sights, he fired. The Decepticon sniper, however, fired first. The round scraped over Torque's armour as he squeezed the trigger. Through his scope, he saw the 'Con's weapon shatter. Torque cycled another round into his weapon and fired again. This time, the round tore the 'Con's ruined arm off at the shoulder. Torque cycled another round into his weapon and fired again. This time, the heavy round removed the top of the 'Con's head.
+++COMM+++ "Raider Five to Raider Nine. Target down." +++COMM+++
Torque put his weapon away and activated his cloaking device. He slipped down the tower he was on and moved to get into the thick of the action.
Swift had somehow found himself in a quiet area. He was moving towards the sounds of weapons fire. He spotted a Decepticon sneaking through the scrap. Swift put away his weapon and deployed his club. He moved closer to the Decepticon and saw it was sneaking up on Paraphus. The 'Con had it's weapon raised and was about to fire.That was, until Swift let out a cry and swung his club at the 'Con. Swift's club connected with the 'Con's chest and knocked him back.
The 'Con also deployed his melee weapon and charged at Swift. Swift blocked the 'Con's swing and kicked him away before following up with a second strike. It connected with the 'Con's left arm and buckled his armour. The 'Con went back on the offensive and charged at Swift. As Swift dodged, blocked, parried and counter-attacked, he began to feel he was marginally outclassed.
"Paraphus, any time you wanna help me out, it would be much appreciated!" He shouted as he caught a blow to the leg.
Paraphus turned around, startled by the commotion going on behind him.
He hesitated a little then drew his Energon Hammer and swung it with all his strength at the con, knocking him away from Swift and onto the floor. He shouted angrily then continued smashing the con up with his hammer, not stopping until the cons upper body was almost unrecognizable.
Paraphus turned to Swift and asked worriedly "You good?"

Quickshot leaped down from his vantage point and moved through the debris quickly. His internal HUD showed his cloaking generator was almost fully recovered. He chose a new spot to take another shot, then when his cloak was once again operational, climbed up and scoped out another 'Con.

Max Convoy had been trying to get closer to the canon to knock out it's Decepticon operators, but with over whelming firepower coming from its defenders it was impossible. He had situated himself behind the cover of a old scraped shuttle wall when he saw Retroblazer.
The Raider leader moved up beside Retroblazer and could get a better view on the canon. What he saw sent a chill colder then the deepest regions of space down his central neuro-processor. The giant canon began to move and position it's barrel to fire upon the Ark. ***COM***'All Raiders, focus your attack on the canon! There getting in position to open fire on their target!'***COM***
***COM***'Way ahead of you Raider Leader!***COM*** Replied Powerplay, still in tank mode. He redirected his attack and headed for the canon. In his way was a seeker Decepticon who wasn't going to give up any ground in seemed. Powerplay didn't mind. Instead of taking him down with a shot from his canon, Powerplay reved up his speed as much as possible and smashed his the front end of his alternate tank form in to the Seeker. Powerplay then rolled over the screaming Decepticon, crushing him to death once he had passed over it's head. 'Learn some respect Decepticons!'
Powerlay then rolled past Paraphus and Swift. 'C'mon! You heard the commander! Its time to make this up close and personal now!' Powerplay then fired a blast from his canon to give the three Raider Autobots some time to get closer to the canon and find cover.
As the assault on the canon continued, the Decepticon commander ordered his seekers to take to the air. It would seem that their orders given to the Decepticon seekers was to take down any Autobot snipers as the hovered about and didn't engage the Raiders on the ground directly.
Powerplay observed this gave the order. ***COM***'Raider snipers! The Seekers are yours! Keep them off our backs and remember, who ever clips the most wings earns an extra energon larger back at HQ!***COM***
Max Convoy then looked at Retroblazer. 'Powerplay, Paraphus and Swift got the east side of the canon, were taking the west. I'm going in, coming?' Max actually said with a smirk.
Swift grinned at Paraphus as Powerplay rolled past.
"C'mon buddy, lets go turn some Decepti-Creeps into scrap!"
He advanced on the cannon and fired on the nearest Decepticon.
Torque, still cloaked, approached a Decepticon roughly the same size as him and deployed his Scimitar. He came at the Decepticon from behind and lashed out at his legs. His cloak cut out when he attacked, his blade cutting the gear linkages on one of the Decepticon's legs. The Decepticon howled in pain and deployed a blade of his own. The two of them attacked, their blades sparked as they connected.
Torque ducked under a blow to his head and lashed out at the Decepticon's weapon arm. Torque stood up as the Decepticon attacked again, narrowly missing being impaled and getting a new scorch mark on his armour.
"Oh that's it Decepti-Chump. I'm going to stab you in the back of the face for that!"
The Decepticon growled and attacked Torque's legs. Torque, using his superior agility, flipped over the Decepticon's attack and lashed out, slicing his blade clean through the Decepticon's weapon arm. The Decepticon howled in pain as he was left completely defenseless. He turned to face Torque as he grabbed the Decepticon. Torque stabbed his blade into the Decepticon's chin and kept pushing until his blade burst out of the Decepticon's face. Torque retracted his blade and shoved his opponent to the floor.
"Told you I'd stab you in the back of the face."
He turned and started moving to a new sniping position as he saw the Seekers take flight.
+++COMM+++ "Roger that Raider Leader. That Energon Lager has my name written all over it." +++COMM+++
Torque transformed into his vehicle mode and retracted his wheels. He took off at full speed and moved to a different area. He transformed and deployed his Null Ray Rifle. Aiming straight up, he zoomed in and tracked one of the Seekers flying overhead. Waiting a couple of astro-seconds for the perfect shot, Torque muttered a prayer to Primus for luck. Torque took his shot and watched as the Seeker's wing took a hit and billowed smoke. The Seeker started to plummet to the ground. Torque shifted his aim and looked for a new target.

Retroblazer nodded smartly to his boss. "You make a dash for it, I'll follow behind and watch your flanks. Be careful, sir." Reloading his shotgun, he waited for Max Convoy to break cover, then followed quickly behind him. Pumping out rounds as fast as he could, he first took a sniper off his feet when he aimed for his leader, then blasted a smaller bot's head clean off his shoulders when he dashed from cover to take a swipe. Having cleaned out his scatter blaster, he drew a little closer to Max and activated his axe, the heat emanating from it warming his forearm. His optic darted from side to side, looking for any more threats...
Swift stuck with Paraphus. He kept his back to the massive Autobot, covering his blind-side. He gunned down a Decepticon who thought he was being sneaky. As he was reloading, he had an idea.
+++COMM to Powerplay and Paraphus+++ "Raiders Four and Seven, give me some covering fire. I have a plan." +++COMM+++
Swift jumped and transformed. He made a quick strafing run with his machine guns before transforming midair and hovering in front of the cannon in a blind spot.
+++COMM+++ "Raider Leader, I think we're about to do some damage to the cannon. Raiders Four and Seven, fire on my position with maximum firepower!" +++COMM+++
Torque cursed as he saw the Seeker he shot at regain control. He shifted his aim and fired another two rounds at the target as fast as his weapon would allow. The first round was a clean miss. The second round struck true. The Seeker detonated midair, debris from it pelting another Seeker, as well as some of the Decepticon ground troops.
He charged up his plasma Cannon and fired at the cannon before transforming into his tank mode and slowly advancing on it in the direction that Swift was. All the while firing shots from the barrel of his tank.
"Don't look around don't look around don't look around-" He thought over and over to himself as he tried not to scare himself with the thought of the number of Decepticons he was probably heading for.
Swift shut off his hover ability and plummeted to the ground as Paraphus opened fire. He transformed into his jet mode and pulled up at the last moment, skimming along the ground. He transformed again and slid feet first along the ground with his left hand on the floor for balance.
He skidded past Paraphus and deployed his club. He heard the 'Bot muttering to himself and saw a Decepticon sneeking up on him. Swift slid past and swung his club, shattering one of the Decepticon's legs. He came to a halt as the 'Con hit the ground. Swift was back on his feet and running towards the downed Decepticon. He was about to bring his club down when the Decepticon rolled over and fired it's Ion Blaster.
Swift hit the deck and scrambled away with a couple of smoldering holes in his armour. He struggled to get to his feet when another barrage of shots just missed him. He turned and deployed his rifle as he received a couple more shots to his chest. He was about to fire when the side of the Decepticon's head shattered and a large, gaping hole appeared.
+++COMM to Swift+++ "Raider Five to Raider Six. Watch yourself, I wont always be there to cover your back" +++COMM+++
Swift chuckled as he heard Torque's voice over the COMM. He raised his right arm and took aim at the cannon, right where he had been and joined Paraphus in firing at the cannon.

Max Convoy picked up speed as he ran closer to the canon, knowing Retorblazer had his back. But then he saw a Decepticon appear in front of him. A Decepticon scout, coming out a cloak mode and armed with a X12 Scrapmaker.
Max quickly transformed and dove as fast as possible to reach the smaller but dangerious Decepticon before he opened fired. The Scrapmaker kicked to life, almost causing the small Decepticon to drop the weapon, but he quickly regained his balance, but not in time. Max open fired with his missile launcher, knocking his opponent off the canon.
Max Convoy had reverted back to his robot mode when he reached the canon. He brought out his Energon Hammer and climbed the canon.
On the other side of the canon, Powerplay blazed through the Decepticons lines of defence. 'Haha! Ain't no Decepti-Creep going to stop 20 tons of rolling steel!'
From his side, an explosion took Powerplay off his track and rolled him over. A Decepticon Seeker had fired his missiles in Powerplay's direction in an attempt to stop the Autobot. The Seeker then transformed and landed on top of Powerplay, with a Energon Sword in his hands.
Swift whipped around at the sound of an explosion. He stopped firing as he saw Powerplay get knocked over. He was begining to feel sluggish after all the combat and his wounds were starting to ache.
Torque saw the Seeker land on Powerplay through the scope of his weapon. He'd relocated to a pile of debris just before putting down the 'Con Swift was dealing with. He tried to get a decent shot at the Seeker on top of Powerplay. He fired, but his shot was high and missed.
+++COMM+++ "Raiders Six and Seven, I can't get a shot at that Seeker on Raider Four. See if you can take him out." +++COMM+++
Swift reloaded his weapon, then clutched his side. He moved alongside Paraphus and patted him on the side of his Alt mode.
"Looks like our talents are needed again. Powerplay is in trouble. We need to go take down that Seeker. He'll be quick, but his armour will be weak, shouldn't be a problem."
Swift then turned and sprinted towards his comrade. He raised his weapon and fired a burst to distract the Seeker. He didn't expect the Seeker to return fire with a Neutron Assault Rifle. Swift caught a couple of rounds in his left leg as he attempted to dive out of the way. He let out a loud cry of pain and attempted to get back up to his feet.
