For some robots, trudging through jungles and deserts can be a massive pain, and fighting through it can be even worse. For a badass wilderness commando like Trailbreaker (aka Trailcutter), however, it's nothing short of a cakewalk. Of course, it partly helps that he uses an impermeable force field to get through these harsh conditions.
When Optimus Prime and the others were captured by the Quintessons, the remaining Autobots aboard the Ark contemplated their next move. Sunstreaker mentioned Trailbreaker as part of a strike force he would assemble to rescue the big guy and their friends.
