FIRST APPEARANCE: "FIVE FACES OF DARKNESS" (OPENING
"Shoot first and ask questions
Profile: Potshot is a master marksman.
His duty is to defend Decepticon territory from Autobot invasion,
and he does it with uncanny skill and efficiency. He will fire on anything
that moves and, unless they quickly provide him with proper authorization,
incinerate them on the spot. Sometimes he's even fired on fellow
Decepticons who failed to identify themselves quickly. He operates
with the efficiency of a finely-tuned machinehe is silent, fast,
and deadly accurate. Despite his superior abilities, though, Potshot
is unhappy with his role. He gets bored easily, and takes no pleasure
in destroying Autobots. In fact, he prefers taunting his targets, scaring
them with deliberate near-misses, rather than just destroying them outright.
Ending their lives too quickly simply isn't as much fun.
Abilities: Potshot can
transform to a full-sized stationary weapons platform, or he can shrink down
into a handheld weapon for other Decepticons to carry. In either size,
he can fly at speeds of 180 mph. As a variable-yield laser cannon,
he can function as an arc-welder at lower settings. At his highest
setting, he can sear through a 10-foot thick slab of steel. His arm
becomes his primary weapon in robot mode, which is less powerful but allows
him to use his mobility to hunt down targets more effectively.
Weaknesses: Potshot is not
very physically adept and lacks fighting capability, relying entirely on
his marksmanship in battle.
