    I would not try to get this achievement until you have finished the campaign, unlock the bonuses and upgraded the Decepticons.

    I used Grindor for most of the missions. His deployable missle launcher really made a huge difference. Try to build up your overdrive as fast as possible by using different attacks and combos and use it when a lot of Autobots are around you. Try to save a full bar of overdrive for any bosses at the end of a mission.

    For the racing missions, I use Sideways he's simply the fastest on the ground.

    The number 1 key to getting all the platinum medals is knowing where all the time bonuses are. Take your time and search for them. Take a couple run throughs to make sure you know where they all are. Also, knowing where you have to go and getting there before the objective marker appears on your map really helps.

    Experiment with all Decepticons and use which one works best for you, some work better than others depending on the mission. Good luck hope this helps.

    I found that Long Haul was better equipped to handle the destruction missions, especially where you had to destroy buildings. Use his flamethrower and it kills them very fast. You just have to watch overheating on the grenade launcher, plus his heal ability will help in the longer missions where you have to deal with a ton of autobots.

    The racing missions, Sideways without question.

    As stated, if you have trouble with a mission using LongHaul, give it a shot with Megatron or Starscream and find who works better for you. I just found Grindor's turrets no where near as useful as IronHides, normally they were destroyed 5 seconds after I placed them.

    As stated also, knowing where the time stops are is critical on some missions.

    This achievement requires you to obtain Platinum medals on ALL Decepticon mission.

    Do NOT try this Achievement until you have fully upgraded the Decepticons and until you have finished the story...

    For most of the missions i used Grindor, Longhaul and Megatron as they are the strongest. For most i would recommend Grindor as he has a fast Transformation and deploys quickly, but if you are going for missions that require raw power to complete, then Longhaul and Megatron are your guys.

    Megatrons Beam Cannon (Pressing Y) will deal with larger enemies very quickly in the missions where you have to defeat tough bosses.

    I did however find Starscream useful in some missions as he is very quick (and even though he is weak) he is quite powerful. The only problem with starscream you have to sometimes hang back a while.

    If you get stuck just experiment with characters, use the ones that suit you best and don't give up this achievement isn't all that hard.

    For the racing missions i used Sideways... he HAS to be used as he is by far the fastest vehicle. Alot of people had trouble with 'The Shanghai Spiral Highway' mission...
    Below is the Youtube video which i refered to and after a few watches it got me the Platinum first try.

    Good luck guys i hope this guide helps.

    Use megatron for the missions where you need the most power, as he is most likely to help you out in that department and kill a lot of enemies in a short amount of time.
    For missions where you have to drop hostages off or similar use Grindor as he is quick in the air and can handle combat efficiently with the aid of his turret.
    Last but not least, use Sideways for the checkpoint/racing missions as he is by far the fastest decepticon.
    As well as this, it would help to know where the time stops are as they can be invaluable sometimes, so you may need to check out free roam beforehand to find where they are.
    If in doubt, just use the character you are best with and best of luck to you all.
