4th-Degree Droids are programmed for combat and security, but other Droids can defend themselves as well. A popular modification is a Projectile Appendage, usually a Hand on humanoid Droids. When the projectile is activated, the Appendage flies toward the target. A Droid might use a Projectile Appendage in order to stun an aggressor or knock a blaster away rather than risking destruction in a blaster fight.
The basic package is a tension-spring device that costs 250 credits to install. A Projectile Appendage is considered to be a Simple Weapon (Ranged) that deals 2d8 damage. Additionally, the Projectile Appendage can be used to make a ranged Disarm attempt against a target within 6 squares.
