Put on Insecticons Insecticon only. When the upgraded character is KO'd 🠪 Draw a card, scrap an enemy Upgrade, and your opponent chooses a card from their hand and scraps it.
Relevant Rulings
Do I draw a card before doing the other parts of the effect?

Yes. If a card tells you to do multiple things, always do them in order. First, you’ll draw a card. Then you scrap an enemy Upgrade. Finally, your opponent scraps a card from their hand. (This means they’ll know what Upgrade you scrap before deciding what card to scrap from their hand.)

So say I have Bug Bomb on an Insecticon that's KO'd. You draw your last card with its ability. Does the Bug Bomb get shuffled into the deck, or does it go to the scrap?

It would get shuffled into the deck.

Can I have more than one of the same Upgrade on the battlefield?

Yes. Upgrades aren’t unique. You could have two characters each with the same Weapon, for
example.

Some Upgrades say "Put on [something] only." How does that work?

These abilities describe what kind of character the Upgrade can be put on. This is usually a trait such
as Melee, Plane, or Insecticon. An Upgrade can be put on a character only if that character matches the
listed requirement.

Let’s say I have an Upgrade that says "Put on Planes only" and I put it on a Plane. But then next turn I
flip the Plane to its other mode, and it’s no longer a Plane. What happens?


The Upgrade stays with the character it’s on. That ability limits only what the Upgrade can initially be
put on. Once that happens, the Upgrade doesn’t check again.
