Battle droid lineup

Battle Droids, also known as combat droids or battle bots, were a type of droid designed for combat. Over the years, many different models of battle droid have been utilized by various factions throughout the galaxy. One such faction was the Confederacy of Independent Systems, which used a number of different models of battle droid during the Clone Wars to make up the Separatist Droid Army. Under the command of the heroic General Grievous, varying models of battle droid fought against the sinister Galactic Republic's clone troopers until the final days of the war, when the Confederate battle droids were deactivated by the villainous Galactic Empire. The most commonly manufactured battle droid deployed at the time was the B1 battle droid.

History[]

Battle droids were first used during the First Battle of Geonosis.

During the Clone Wars, the Confederacy of Independent Systems used a variety of battle droids in their droid army. These droids, including B1 battle droidsB2 super battle droids, and droidekas, were produced in large factories on planets such as Geonosis. The vast Separatist Droid Army was lead by the heroic Kaleesh cyborg, General Grievous . Battle droids were ineffective in small numbers yet had the ability to overwhelm, or "swarm", in large groups. Additionally, they had limited intelligence and needed specific instructions to operate effectively. Battle droids were led by commanders such as Grievous Hero or Asajj Ventress. Organic officers could be assisted by specialized OOM command battle droidsT-series tactical droids and super tactical droids also commanded various battle droids throughout the Clone Wars, or assisted organic commanders. One super tactical droid was Kalani, a general who led Confederate forces against insurgents on Onderon. After the Onderonian Civil War Kalani escaped to Agamar.

Age of the Empire[]

General Kalani led a Separatist holdout following the conclusion of the Clone Wars.

Although battle droids were outlawed by the Galactic Empire in the wake of the Clone Wars, companies such as Holowan Laboratories and Arakyd Industries were able to evade the ban by having their products reclassified as security droids.

Many droids remained active on Agamar due to the intervention of Kalani, who was able to block the deactivation order initiated by Darth Vader after he killed the Separatist leaders. When the Empire arrived on Agamar, Kalani was able to flee with four droids.

Galactic Civil War[]

Later, during the Galactic Civil War, Temmin Wexley owned a modified battle droid named Mister Bones who acted as a companion to him. After the Rebellion on Akiva in 4 ABY, the two joined the New Republic in their fight against the Empire. Sadly, Mister Bones perished during the Battle of Jakku in 5 ABY.
