I need to clear this up, and the headcanon page will be edited to reflect this.
Octane is from around season two. Therefore he has no idea who any of the following dudes are:
- Scourge and the Sweeps
He is also lacking interfacing equipment, due to him being a dumb shit. And he’s on Cybertron and stuck in a cell, so he has no idea what’s happening on Earth.
And, for newcomers and as a refresher for those who frequent his inbox:
Octane is considered vile, even by Decepticon standards. This triple changing bully is a cheat, a liar, and a coward who thinks only of himself and can’t be trusted any further than Megatron can throw Devastator. The only reason that this inveterate thief is allowed to continue functioning is that he has an uncanny ability to locate stores of fuel for his fellow Decepticons, and is usually able to spin a fairly convincing excuse for why he was unable to assist them in their latest battle. As annoying and frustrating as he may be to work with, most of his allies will grudgingly admit that he does perform his job as a fuel transport quite well—if he could just get over his annoying habit of making them beg for every drop.
tl;dr OCTANE IS AN ASSHOLE.
You want hugs, his SG counterpart is more than willing to oblige.
[reblogging yet again because people sending asks need to read dis shit]
