Welcome to the latest in our series of articles about the Transformers Earth Wars mobile game where we take a look at the best Power Cores for each TFEW bot. While our staff will never claim to have all of the answers for TFEW, we do our homework and test out each bot to ensure we are making only the best recommendations.
Hound and Dragstrip are another set of underutilized bots that were initially poorly received. Their ability cost was decreased from 7 to 6 in purely to increase their usage. The Release the Hounds / Holo Bomb cannot destroy most defensive targets (aside from supply containing targets) without multiple uses, so it makes sense in that respect. However, they are they hardest hitting bots with the highest gunner DPS of all other similarly ranked bots. So which core will work best for these gunners?
Best Power Core for Hound & Dragstrip:
Best Core: Volatile Mixture (Dragstrip) or G1 Hound – These cores are critical to most gunners as their strength is in their ability to take out base defenses quickly. Since Hound and Dragstrip have relatively low damage output against defensive structures due to the nature of their special ability, these core will help one shot the storage buildings so you can keep your ability focused on hitting defenses with its next usage. In addition G1 Hound’s core is effectively the same as the Volatile Mixture core with the added bonus of the “clone” Hound popping out, which is useful for saving your team some HP and activating outposts. Unfortunately, there’s no G1 Dragstrip core to complement this, otherwise it would displace the Volatile Mixture Core!
Other Cores: Attack Core
G1 Power Core: Hound’s G1 Power Core (Bronze) boosts his special ability damage by 3% at Level 1 (Silver starts at 4%), and every 15 seconds it makes a decoy that has 30% of Hound’s Health.
