Slingshot won't ever win a Mr. Popularity contest. He's an incessant braggart, even when he's done absolutely nothing to brag about. He likes to take credit for the exploits of others, a thoroughly annoying habit that never fails to elicit animosity from his fellow Aerialbots. Most of the other Autobots are also aware of Slingshot's rotten personality and would prefer he removed himself from their struggle against the Decepticons. But, much to the surprise of almost everyone, Autobot leader Optimus Prime turns a blind optical sensor to Slingshot's faults, and instead is very supportive of him. Optimus Prime realizes, and he may be the only one who does, that Slingshot acts this way to disguise his own lack of confidence - he's the slowest and has the least range of all the Aerialbots and feels inferior as a result. Despite everything else, Slingshot is a loyal and hardworking soldier, qualities that Optimus Prime believes merit his understanding and trust.
Slingshot got into a fight with Sunstorm and during that battle the two jet transformers were grabbing each other in the neck and then beat each other up. The Jet transformers got into a dogfight and Slingshot did his Jet judo on Sunstorm which resulted Sunstorm crashing into a mountain. Slingshot then fled the scene and head back to the Venator Star Destroyer for repairs.
During the war Slingshot was beaten up by an upgraded Starscream when Starscream threw him at a Mountain.
At the end of the Transformers Wars Slingshot along with the other Aerialbots were hailed as heros across Cybertron.
In Darth Grievous's evil vision of the future Slingshot was killed by the Seekers during the Autobots last stand against the dark forces of evil. Despite his efforts he was destroyed by the Seekers.
Slingshot is a VTOL - a vertical take-off-and-landing aircraft, which means he can shoot straight up off the ground like a rocket and needs only a launching pad, not a long runway, to take off from and land upon. Although the slowest of the Aerialbots - his maximum speed is Mach 1.6 - he's the most maneuverable. He can virtually turn, in mid-air, on the proverbial dime. His range is 800 miles. He is also the best sharpshooter of the Aerialbots - his twin mortar cannons can hit a highway stop sign six miles away. In robot mode, he uses with extreme accuracy a neutron rifle, which shoots packets of neutrons at two hundred rounds per second. A short barrage can level a city block. He combines with his fellow Aerialbots to form the giant robot known as Superion. Slingshot is armed with the Blade of the Cosmos which was only used by Slingshot and no one else.
