  Laserbeak is Soundwave's surveillance drone. He is a bird-like Mini-Con. He is stored in Soundwave's chest along with 3 other pet Mini-Cons (Ravage, Frenzy and Rumble). Soundwave sends him on missions that he is usually too busy to do.


When Soundwave intercepted a message from Agent Fowler, Soundwave released Laserbeak (which was resting on his chest) to bring Fowler to the Nemesis. After chasing and shooting down Fowler's helicopter, the drone grabbed Fowler with his tentacles and returned to the Decepticon ship.

After Soundwave picked up a possible signal from Megatron, who was previously assumed dead, Starscream went to investigate. Untrusting of Starscream, Soundwave decided to keep an eye on him by sending Laserbeak after him. After finding Megatron, Starscream intended to allow Megatron to perish but was forced to reconsider when he discovered Soundwave's Minicon watching him.

While proving a point to Airachnid, Soundwave unleashed Laserbeak, who zoomed around the Nemesis bridge and shot her a couple of times before reuniting with his master.

Laserbeak was dispatched to keep the Jackhammer busy while Soundwave went after an Iacon relic. Wheeljack managed to shoot the drone down, and Ratchet hit on the plan of uploading a virus into the disabled Laserbeak to allow the Autobots to gain the Iacon database. He and Raf managed to do so, planting an additional grenade as a decoy. When Soundwave retrieved Laserbeak and returned to the Nemesis, the Decepticons found the grenade but not the virus, which passed into the ship's computer and began downloading the database. 

Once the Decepticons obtained information pointing to Jasper, Nevada as the home of the Autobots' human friends, Laserbeak was put to work searching the area. This bore fruit when he located Smokescreen, who happened to be the last of the Iacon relics. He kept Smokescreen busy until Soundwave arrived to capture the Autobot.

Laserbeak was dispatched to monitor the battle after the Decepticons tracked Jack Darby's location. He was caught in the explosion when Arcee and Jack blew up a gas station to take out the two pursuing Vehicons, and Soundwave was unable to salvage any surveillance data from him.

During a battle in Texas, Laserbeak detached from Soundwave and was able to successfully short-out Optimus Prime's shiny new jetpack, causing the Autobot leader to crash in an undignified heap.

At the raid to secure the second part for the Omega Lock 2.0, Laserbeak was disconnected from Soundwave and as such was not shot down. He returned to the warship to inform the Decepticons of what happened. Shockwave later had him follow Agent Fowler to the Autobot Base. Here, Laserbeak reconnected with Soundwave and restored him to full functionality, losing his transponder in the process.

Along with Soundwave, he was sent to Shadowzone in the final battle.
