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.
Doubledealer is a rare bot with no allegiance and can be played on both the Autobot and Decepticon sides, like his Triplechanger counterpart Snapdragon. First added to the game as the prize in the September 2020 TFEW Alliance Leaderboard Event entitled Termination Clause, this unique Triplechanger has two special abilities, Toxic Mission and Incendiary Missile. Toxic Mission reads “Toxic fumes reduce your enemies’ normal attacks range by 50%. You shoot Acid balls, each dealing damage per target over 15 secs (up to 3x). You deal damage more to enemies on fire.” Meanwhile, Incendiary Missile reads “Your missile deals damage to enemies in a small area. Heal for 40% of the damage dealt to targets under Acid. Additionally sets a large area on fire dealing damage per target over 25 secs.” So which Power Cores are best for Doubledealer to best enhance his abilities?
Best Power Cores for Doubledealer:
Alchemist Prime – Doubledealer is a Triplechanger bot that has abilities that look a lot like those of Sandstorm – use one attack and follow it with another ability that includes a heal. As a result, increasing his max Health will make this bot more survivable and allow for more attacks. Any Power Core that enhances Doubledealer’s Health is a good choice, and given Triplechangers have limitation on which cores they can equip, if you have a 4-star Doubledealer or use your lower star version a lot, a Prime Core is likely your best choice. Consider the Alchemist Prime as the first choice or even the Micronus Prime Core as a good option. If a Prime Core is not an option the Vitality and Rejuvenate Cores will also be effective.
Other Cores: Micronus Prime Core, Vitality, Rejuvenate
Best COMBAT Bots for Doubledealer:
Trenchfoot – The use of COMBAT bots is always a tricky subject as in some cases they can fundamentally change the type of bot you have. An early strategy was to use Flak/ to turn a high DPS bot with strong survivability into a Gunner-style bot and thus gain range from their normal attacks and this still works in many scenarios today. For Doubledealer, he is a Triplechanger bot who covers the area with Acid with his special attack, then shoots a missile into that Acid to ignite it. As a result, a COMBAT bot like Trenchfoot is a good use given Trenchfoot deals more damage to targets under fire, acid, amp or speed reduction.
