Description: The sniper droideka, more commonly known as the sniper droid, was a sniper variation of droideka used by the Confederacy of Independent Systems during the Clone Wars.
Designed for urban warfare in a city where the droid could easily conceal itself, the sniper droideka was equipped with a single heavy blaster rifle rather than paired dual blaster cannons seen on standard droideka models; neither was it equipped with a deflector shield generator. Instead, the rounded plate that served as their rolling surface was able to fold down over their face with a small slot that they could aim and fire through. The plate was armored and was resistant to blaster fire, however, the plate only protected their front and left their sides vulnerable. Their rate of fire was also slower, but provided much more penetrating power. They were designed with a highly advanced targeting computer and were extremely accurate. They were capable of speaking in both binary and Basic.
A pair of such droids were used during the Battle of Kiros. They were used to defend a bomb from enemies, these being Anakin Skywalker and Ahsoka Tano. Initially, the two Jedi attempted to deflect their weapon fire back at the droids but their front sections were armored to protect them from such an attack. However, Jedi General Skywalker determined that the droids lack such protection on their sides which saw him and his Padawan deflect the sniper droid fire at their sides thus destroying them.
