Reveal 🠪 When one of your Decepticons defends.
When Revealed 🠪 Do damage to the attacker equal to the number of Upgrades on that attacker.
Relevant Rulings
Taken from the Aequitas FAQ
If the damage done by Backfire is enough to KO the attacker, does the attacker still do attack damage?
No. You reveal Backfire before battle cards are flipped. In fact, if Backfire KO’s the attacker, the attack will end and no one flips battle cards.
