|“||Wreck and Rule!||”|
Impactor was the leader of the Wreckers, an elite Autobot strike team, and as such was a deadly force to be reckoned with on the battlefield. Though he was dedicated to his troops, he was not so dedicated to his superiors, and is not above directly insulting them. Emirate Xaaron, who assembled the Wreckers long ago to assassinate the Decepticon warlord Trannis, took this attitude in stride, and can give as well as he receives. Impactor refered to the Autobot resistance leader as a "wily old buzzard," as he was often surprised by Xaaron's blunt yet indirect ways of making his point and getting what he wanted. Despite this, their difficulties masked a genuine friendship, culminating in Impactor giving his life to protect Xaaron from a Decepticon assassin.
After the leave of Optimus Prime, Megatron and their troops from the war, Emirate Xaaron assembled the Wreckers to assassinate the warlord Trannis who came into power under Shockwave in Megatron's absence. Impactor was chosen to lead this team. Though the assassination attempt was successful, other leaders quickly sprung up to take Trannis' place.
- According to Dreadwind in issue #221's letters page, Impactor transformed into an "earth-boring vehicle." In the letter page to issue #238, Survival Run, Dreadwind clarified that he transformed into a drill tank but didn't have an earth mode.
