Abilities are bonuses that augment how bots fight and protect themselves. Each bot has its own set of abilities, including a signature ability. To view a bot’s abilities, tap the BOTS tab, choose the specific bot, and tap on the INFO button.
Abilities can be permanent or temporary bonuses. Permanent bonuses are passive or activated on Critical Hit. Temporary bonuses have a chance to activate when you use your special attacks. All abilities are typically themed around the background story of each bot.
The amount and strength of abilities for each bot may change, depending on their Tier and Rank. For example, Optimus Prime at Tier 1 (1 Star), Rank 1, will only have the ability Guardian Slash available. When you rank him up to Rank 2, the ability I’ll Take You All On! (special) will become available.

Special Attack Bonus
