    Oct 14: Sideswipe – Speedsters
    Oct 21: Ultra Magnus – Target: 2006
    Oct 28: Ironhide – Pure Warriors
    Nov 4: Season 10 Prime Pass Event
    Nov 11: Strongarm – Femme Fatale
    Nov 18: Flamewar – Noughties
    Nov 25: Sentinel Prime – Leaders
    Dec 2: Energon Soundwave – Energon Fueled
    Dec 9: Bluestreak – Brothers In Armor
    Dec 16: Ultimate Megatron – Variant Versions
    Dec 23: Omega Supreme – Gestalt
    Dec 30: Nemesis Prime – The Iconic Transformers
    Jan 6: Season 11 Prime Pass Event

    *Predicting the featured character is a lot harder than the bonus squad because historically they haven’t always stuck to the pattern. Generally I just chose the one that has been the longest since they were featured. So I could easily be wrong about some of those.
    Also I’m not sure about the placement of the Prime Pass events. The last couple have been the first event every other month. So I went with that.


    Thanks so much for this thread!

    If Pure Warriors is next, I’ve been leveling up Brawl. Don’t use any of these in SR, but Brawl seems to outperform the Lockdowns for me in regular missions for me. Don’t have Ironhide yet.

    Which arm accessory is recommended for Brawl, Cannon (Damage) vs Launchers (Explosive Force)?


    @noahlot Damage.

    But Explosive Rounds equipped on either of the Lockdowns make them excessively better than Brawl. I would shift to using Energon Lockdown if you can.


    @sntrooper thanks! Misread them and thought they had Explosive Force. Explosive Rounds are great.
    I don’t have Exp Rounds on either Lockdown, which is probably why I thought they sucked. Thanks again.


    Which one from the leaders and energon fueled should I upgrade? Any help on good accessories as well please?


    Energon Fueled is easy: Energon Grimlock. Most useful accessories are those with weapon cooldown and incendiary rounds.

    As for the Leaders it’s either Grey Slam Grimlock or Dark Megatron.


    Thank you.


    Wow, great work! Which can be done only by those, who playing ABTF from day 1 and played all those squads many many times! And not so lazy, like me :) I had this idea two years ago, but was too lazy analyze hundreds events from my list, and last years I even stoped my “Events list” so actually need to dig forum hardly … But not anymore! Thank you!


    Next one I will need advice for will be The Iconic Transformers. Epic Optimus or Energon Bumblebee? Upgrade and weapons advice and which one better please?


    Thank SnTrooper. Would you also advice the events after 2021?




    Is it possible for you to post or edit the list with new events? I really use it a lot👌👌👍
