The Pistoeka Buzz Droid is one of the most widely produced in-battle sabotage Droids. It is specially designed to be loaded into Discord Missiles and fired into battle formations at Starfighters and other similarly sized Starships. The Discord Missile fires into the battle formation at high acceleration and then splits apart, revealing a trio of Buzz Droids. When packed into a missile or seeking a target, Buzz Droids fold themselves into their armored spherical shells. When they come within range of a target, the Buzz Droids open their shells, extend their Magnetic Feet, and lock themselves onto their target. Then the Buzz Droids use their cutting arms and laser cutters to disable or destroy the target. Buzz Droids' programming is relatively sophisticated, allowing them to rapidly decide upon the most effective tactics for rendering their target helpless. If they destroy their first target, Buzz Droids are programmed to detach themselves and seek out a new target.
Buzz Droid Encounters Edit
Fully intact Buzz Droids are most commonly found in large space or air battles, where massive numbers of them are sent out to overwhelm the enemy's ships. The military produces and uses them in vast quantities because five of these Droids are cheaper than one TIE Fighter. As a result, they are essentially built to be disposable. After a battle, those Buzz Droids that are capable of flying back to the nearest friendly Capital Ship do so, while all the rest are left for salvage.
Buzz Droids can't be played as Droid Heroes.
