Name: BX-series droid commando

Rank: Battle Droid

Tier: High 4

Background: BX-series droid commandos, also known as BX-series commando droids or simply commando droids, were advanced battle droids used by the Confederacy of Independent Systems during the Clone Wars. Designed for infiltration and action behind enemy lines, they were also used to perform security, bodyguard and enforcer duties for certain high-ranking Separatists. Ruthless, lethal and adaptive, these droids were the bane of Republic clone troopers and were able to put even a Jedi on the back foot. However, their hefty price tag prevented them from being mass-produced.

Speed: High G Combat Speed

Abilities: Mastery in Espionage and Deception. Highly Proficient in Programmed Hand-to-Hand, Camouflage, Slicing, and Programmed Sabre Combat. Proficient in Hunting/Tracking, Throwables, and Sniper Rifles. Skilled in Rocket Launchers and Energy Shields.

Perk: Wall Hopper

  • If the Commando Droid jumps off an inclined surface to another position, they get a temporary +1 tier increase to their speed for 2 actions. Has a 5 minute cooldown.

Equipment: Proficient with E-5 blaster rifle; Vibrosword; 2 Thermal Detonators; Magnetised Feet.

Weaknesses: They are limited by their programming, though not as much as their droid counterparts. These droids, however, will always favour the stealth and infiltration option, thus making them limited in a head-on independent combat scenario. Disarming the droid will render it useless for a brief time as it has to recalculate its options. The droid will shut down when its battery runs out or it is hit by an EMP. Despite being able to withstand several hits by blasters, a headshot or lightsaber will instantly destroy them. Despite being able to disguise itself, their awkward movements in the armour and atypical responses to orders (usually "roger, roger," a common battle-droid response) meant that observant individuals could see through the ruse
