Weaknesses: HK-51s are droids, and thus they can be disabled by EMPs and other such electronic disabling methods. 51s prefer to stick to the close and mid range, not liking to engage enemies from a distance. As such, being a superior close range combatant or attacking them from extreme range will render them nigh useless. Furthermore, knowing this preference, one could even lay traps or manipulate a combat scenario in their favour; using mines and other such devices to eliminate entire squads of these droids. The HK-51s, due to a skilled tactic by Marka Ragnos at the Foundry, still contain some old programming from the HK-50 model. Thus they can be convinced to go against their orders and their masters, and a skilled enough manipulator could easily turn a HK-51 unit to their side. 51s are arrogant, seeing themselves as far superior to older models of the HK-series and modern battle droids. Thus, they will be more inclined to fight enemies above their pay grade, and one can use this to eliminate them.
