The Driller makes it's second and final appearence in Chicago, where it attacks the Autobots alongside Shockwave and dislocates Optimus's trailer. Later, when Shockwave sees Sam, Epps and the others in the Hudson Tower - the Driller begins to crush it, and just before it can kill Sam and the others, Optimus flies over with his jetpack after retrieving his trailer, furiously being engaged in battle with the beast, until finally, he flies straight through the neck of the creature - ultimately killing it, leaving ruins of twisted tentacles. (Shockwave surely wants revenge at Optimus)
