Alt mode: Grappler gun
Robot Mode: Spider
Picked up by Nexus on his little sight-seeing of the restricted levels of the fortress. Venom is the perfect partner for Nexus able to crawl into hiding places to spy on unsuspecting Autobots.
Venom can transform into a Grappling gun, this mode was chosen by Nexus. The reason for this is that so he can use Venom to grab any target right in it's tracks.
Venom has one trick up his sleeve a slight paralyzing poison he can emit from his pincers. Anyone who is bitten by him will have temporary shut down but it only lasts for 15 earth minutes. The poison itself is an electrical virus, much like the imobolizer gun (See Generation 1) but in liquid form.
