- The Polarity Gauntlet is a weapon in the Prime continuity.
The Polarity Gauntlet is an old Decepticon weapon used in the Great War. After the war, it got left behind on Earth. It has the ability to magnetize anything metal, even other Transformers. It can also repel them, with phenomenal force. It is a very dangerous weapon in the wrong servos.
The Gauntlet's energy signature was tracked to the center of a ghost town in the west of America, by the Autobots and Decepticons. Arcee and Bulkhead were sent by the Autobots. Breakdown, (now with an eye patch) pleaded with Megatron to let him go on the mission to redeem himself for getting beaten by some humans, he agreed. Airachnid also arrives to claim the Gauntlet for her own purposes. Bumblebee also used this device on the Autobots quest for the Omega Lock using it to retrive the Omega Keys.
