The first decepticon tore through a heavily armed military base without a problem, and yet later in the movie, a band of 5-7 soldiers is able to hold them off at close range with hand-held weapons.Danger wrote:I'm not sure if you're actually being serious about the question but by weapon did you mean the big robot? I believe he was a Decepticon, Starscream.
Why didn't the decepticons just emit that round blast that wiped out the base?
I didn't remember the decepiticon wiping out the base in one shot but I believe when they fought that scorpion thing in the desert and retrieved part of his tail they realized they actually did damage to it. They isolated it down to some specific bullet/cartridge/chemical mixture or whatever that hurt the scorpion and loaded it in all their weapons. They also mentioned that the chest area contained the least protection so they focused fire on that part. Bumblebee was also shooting at the decepticon too so I don't think it was just the soldiers that did all the damage.
