Speed: Middle H Combat Speed
Abilities: Proficient in Throwables and Ground Vehicles.
Perk: Three Points Ya Dirty Whore!
When the B1 V2 throws a thermal detonator, it cannot miss. This can be negated by removing oneself from the radius of the explosion, getting behind cover, using the Force to negate the attack, kicking the grenade away, or tanking the explosion.
Equipment: Highly Proficient in E-5 blaster rifles; Proficient in SE-14 blaster pistols; 6 Thermal Detonators.
Weaknesses: The B1 V2 is far more expensive than the B1 droid, and as such, is more rare on the battlefield itself. Usually they can be found leading groups of B1s, and as such, killing the V2 would cause chaos in the ranks of the droids without a leader. While the V2 is more intelligent and independent than the V1, it is still a mass-produced battle droid. It will usually carry out its orders to the letter, and thus the droid itself can become confused when incorrect orders are given; though it will work around them in an independent capacity. Furthermore, since these droids have more personality and independence, they can be reasoned with and manipulated by a third party. Thus, if the scenario is against them or manipulated to look against them, the V2 could be convinced to retreat. And while the V2 has removed many of its weaknesses, like the weak neck, it is still a baktoid droid based off the B1. It is weaker than most droids, and a strong physical combatant can destroy it. Lastly, the droid is still susceptible to EMP-based attacks, and thus that is recommended for instantly disabling it.
