Transformers: Age of ExtinctionEdit

The Stinger prototype was being displayed in KSI headquarters when Cade, Shane, and Bumblebee snuck in. A nearby display promoting Stinger claimed that it was "Inspired by Bumblebee, but better in every way!". In the promotional video, the lead engineers claimed that Bumblebee's design was antique and ugly, and that Stinger improved on Bumblebee's design flaws. An offended Bumblebee knocked over the prototype, but hid when KSI staff arrived to investigate the disturbance, leaving Shane to take the heat.

In its first field trial, Stinger was deployed alongside Galvatron to chase down and apprehend the Autobots. During the battle, Stinger fired one missile at the Autobots, which missed. He pursued the other Autobots, but his role was mostly overshadowed by Galvatron's free will and relentless pursuit of Optimus Prime. He was later recalled once Prime was incapacitated and shipped to China, to avoid the feds discovering KSI's prototypes.

When Galvatron revealed his true nature and commandeered KSI's man-made Transformer army, Stinger was among the many drones deployed in Hong Kong to seize the Seed. Stinger pursued Bumblebee and the other Autobots, and eventually engaged his yellow doppelganger and Strafe in the ensuing battle. Both he and Bumblebee fought on the Dinobot's back as Strafe flew through Hong Kong's cityscape, but Bumblebee eventually defeated him by impaling his head with his gun's blade, before shooting him, blowing his head and upper body apart, while the remains flew into a bus, or onto the ground. Strafe happily gnawed on Stinger's decapitated head, while a smug Bumblebee remarked he "hates cheap knock-offs".
