There was a time when Mudslinger might have considered joining the Autobots, but that was long ago. He's a robot of action, with no time for things like thinking, negotiating or peace. In his opinion, the Autobots are a bunch of sissies. With his team in tow he's got the power to prove just how much tougher than them he is.
