Torquemada was still seething from Vendetta trying to cut off his path, but would seek his revenge later. Just as he was contemplating how he swept down for another dive at the bug empty who launched a surprise attack of Scraplets. Already the seeker could feel them attaching to his wing and began to sway rotating from left to right into a barrel roll but having no effect on them. Already they were beginning to eat at his wings! Near the ground anyway, Torquemada transformed and hovered inched from the ground and launched at the empty, releasing his Energon Scimitar and going for a direct attack as some of the Scraplets deviated to his shoulders and the odd few on his arms..
Sidewinder had been struck by one of the hunks of metal thrown earlier and had only just managed to recooperate. He stood up quickly and was about to switch out his rifle when he saw the huge empty throw the scraplets. He transformed and took to the sky only to get his cockpit covered in scraplets. "Get off get off get of get off!" he shouted and dove to the ground again where he transformed and wrenched them off, throwing them against at the big empty before drawing his rifle and finding cover.

The grenade that Bomblast fired at the large Empty found it's mark. Exploding on the Empty's hip, the large mech stumbled backwards while the leaking energon ignited. If the large Empty's internal systems hadn't closed the leak off, the big robot may have exploded right there instead of just being a walking inferno.
As Torquemada went in for his attack, Vendetta flew in behind him only to taunt him. 'It seems your fancy flying didn't keep you from contracting a disease! Haha!'
Before Vendetta heard anything back, Torquemada's Energon Scimitar struck the large Empty's from behind, severing it's left arm at the shoulder.
Scatterdust, who had remained Scraplet free form staying behind Bomblast, came running up on the large Empty who had fallen down and seemed to be almost dead. 'Nice one Torquemada! Now watch as a real Decepticon finishes the job!'
As Scatterdust ran up on the large Empty, he readied his weapon to open fire on the wounded robot -
-only to have the large Empty seized him by his face with his massive hand. Scatterdust struggled to free himself as the Empty held his head tight, allowing the Scraplets that infected his hand and forearm, crawling all over the small Decepticon.
Powersurge managed to remove the last of the Scraplets that had started eating his armour. He had a number of small holes in his armour and a couple that went much deeper. In a fit of rage, he deployed his Battle Pistol, zoomed in on the gigantic Empty and opened fire.
Bomblast smirked as Scatterdust got grabbed by the Empty. He continued stomping on any Scraplets that came near him. At length, he eventually deployed his Morningstar. Almost casually he approached the Empty and started swinging his weapon, as if about to do the hammer throw. Soon enough, Bomblast was spinning around, putting his full weight into each swing and getting some good momentum. Letting out a cry of anger, mostly because the Empty wasn't going down, Bomblast swung at the Empty with all his might.
"You let me know if you see any real Decepticons whilst your up there Scatterdust!", smirked the seeker and ripped some of the Scraplets of his shoulder and threw them towards Vendetta. When he turned back he stuck his foot on the empty as he tried to pull back and get his Energon Scimitar free.

Onix's scrapmaker ripped about a large amount of scraplets, the little creatures never standing a chance against the Decepticon's overkill tactics.
Powersurge's shot found it's target in the Empty's face as it tore off a section of its forehead, taking an optic along with it.
As Bomblast struck and Torquemada attacked, the large robot who had bravely defended his fellow Emtpys fell to one knee. In order to keep it's self up, the large Empty released Scatterdust.
The small fell backwards but was back up on his feet. Scatterdust screamed in pain as more then half of outer skin of his head was eaten away. His voice was barely audible when he begged for help. His hands make his head worse as he tried to scratch the scraplets away from what was left of his dome. He fell, the pain to much for him, still calling out to his fellow Decepticons for help.
Vendetta cursed as Torquemada infected him with the scraplets. He landed, not to far from the dieing Scatterdust and began to rid himself of the scraplets. 'Stop your wining Scatterdust! Be a real mech and deal with it yourself!'

With the combination of firepower and an assault form melee weapons, the large Empty was no longer able to fight. Its internal systems failing and overloading at the same time -
- the large robot exploded as the final killing blow was delivered.
Vendetta finally cleaned himself off of the scraplets. He was about to walk over to Torquemada and have it out with him for infecting him with the scraplets, when his attention was caught by Scatterdust. The small Decepticon laid their, unmoving as the scraplets, who were now finished with his head, moved down towards the rest of his body. 'How repulsive. Is anyone going to check if he's alive? I'm not going near him, better off finishing whats left of him with a bullet to the cerebra cortex.'
As the rest of the Decepticons were gathering themselves together, Sunreaper was running over to Powersurge. The leader of the Decepticon squad was greeted with bad news. 'There's a small Autobot patrol approaching from sector 8.45! Five warriors, possible scout mission or the ones that left energon for the Emptys.'
"Slag it. Alright, they know someone's been causing trouble. Everyone, quickly find some cover, we're going to want to surprise them. We're going to try and capture a couple, so try to leave some alive. Remember, 'alive' doesn't mean they have to be able to use their arms and legs. Wait for them to get into this area, then open fire on them."
Bomblast stood up and dusted himself off. When the Empty exploded, he'd been thrown quite some distance. After hearing his orders, he stumbled off to the wreckage of an old shuttle. He entered and made his way to the flight deck. He was able to aim his grenade launcher out of a hole in the hull and had a good view of the killing ground the Powersurge set up.
The blasts blew the last of the Scraplets off Torquemada's wings, as he looked round the final blow had been put into Scatterdust, putting the mech out of his misery. "Unfortunate? If you hadn't of done it, I would have. A half-dead mech is no good to us...", grumbled the bot.
The thought of Autobots coming pleased him greatly, he preferred them to bring it on in a straight fight to all this sneaking around. "You run and cover! I prefer to look my victims in the optic!"

Sunreaper had already found himself a pile of scrap to hide under. He readied his weapon to open fire on the first head that appeared in his scope.
Vendetta heard and saw Torquemada and decided that he would not be undone by the Seeker's actions. 'All optics on me and you shall not be unimpressed!'
With that, the seeker transformed and rose into the air, hovering high enough to see the advancing Autobot squad. As the Autobots saw Vendetta they opened fired. Vendetta fired off two missiles, hitting one Autobot. The Seeker then turned around and took off, making the Autobots transform in to their land vehicle mides to go after him -
- and drive past the hidden Decepticons. Immediately the 4 remaining Autobots spotted Torquemada and readied their weapons to fire.
