Marvel Comics continuity
Mudslinger was despatched to Earth, along with the rest of the Off Road Patrol and the Race Car Patrol when Optimus Prime requested reinforcements. Charged with investigating creature sightings that were believed to be Decepticons, Mudslinger searched a swamp area and came across Skullgrin and Iguanus arguing over whether to kill Cecilia Santiago or not. The rest of the patrol joined them and, while his teammates took care of Skullgrin, Mudslinger managed to destroy the Decepticons' storm maker machine, although it was too late to stop the storm running its course. When Roadhandler led the other Micromasters in fostering better relations with humans, Mudslinger found himself pressed into service as a paddy wagon when Tailspin apprehended some crooks.
Dreamwave comics continuity

He was getting a tattoo from Road Hugger. Later, he was present during an attack of the Insecticons on the Micromasters. Finally, Mudslinger partook in a march of the Micromasters to end a battle between Autobots and Decepticons.
