What's in store

Transformers Earth Wars - every headquarters unlock revealed

The most important building in your Transformers: Earth Wars base is the headquarters.

Every time this thing goes up a level you'll get access to a bunch of cool new toys like the scanner, the research lab, and the beam laser.

You upgrade your headquarters by increasing your player rank, which is boosted every time you construct or upgrade buildings, or improve your Transformers in the research lab.

Here's what you get at each headquarters level. It's the same for both Autobots and Decepticons.
