Though officially billed as a Probe Droid, the K-X12 model Droid from MarenData becomes popular because of its ability to fulfill multiple roles. The Hovering Droid is good at getting into and out of dangerous or confined locales, and it's three clawed Appendages allow it to twist, move, and otherwise manipulate objects that would block other Droids. Though MerenData claims that the blaster appendage is used only to clear away debris, owners of K-X12 Probe Droids use them as security and patrol Droids because of their offensive capabilities.
MerenData's Probe Droids come into widespread use during the Jedi Civil War, when the Republic, Sith, and private citizens alike use the Droids for security and observation. Many of the Droids are reprogrammed and sent out as espionage Droids, slipping into enemy facilities through unusual points of entry. These Probe Droids are loaded into hollowed-out Concussion Missiles and fired into the atmosphere of enemy-controlled planets; the Droid is programmed to destroy the missile from the inside before impact, then float away to avoid slamming into the planet.
K-X12 Probe Droids can't be played as Droid Heroes.
