Description: The Pistoeka sabotage droid, also known as the buzz droid, was a model of sabotage droid manufactured by Colicoid Creation Nest that could speak in the Colicoid language. They were used by the Confederacy of Independent Systems during the later stages of the Clone Wars for purpose of disabling enemy craft and were the successor to the Mark One Pistoeka sabotage droid. They were transferred to enemy fighters via specialized discord missiles, and popped open to reveal their insect-looking body. They operated quickly, using their tools of vandalism, such as drilling cutters. While their tools were effective, the central eye was a weak spot which could take the buzz droid out of commission when hit.

Description
Pistoeka sabotage droids, otherwise known as buzz droids, were disposable weapons produced by Colicoid Creation Nest for the Confederacy of Independent Systems, and were typically deployed via discord missiles from either HMP droid gunships, Vulture-class droid starfighters, or droid tri-fighters, which contained up to seven buzz droids. The sabotage droids utilized a variety of specialized tools such as a circular saw, drill head, pincer arm, and plasma torch, to swiftly dismantle starfighters, vehicles, or even droids. Despite their individual insignificance, a swarm of buzz droids were capable of making short work of a craft by targeting its vital systems. The droid was 0.25 meters in diameter and were equipped with red sensor systems.

History
During the Clone Wars, buzz droids were used by the Confederacy of Independent Systems. During a incident at Carida, a super tactical droid sent several buzz droids to destroy the remaining droids of a Venator-class Star Destroyer and D-Squad. They were then blown out a airlock into hyperspace when M5-BZ opened it. Several buzz droids attacked Jedi General Anakin Skywalker's Eta-2 Actis-class light interceptor and almost disabled his ship during the Republic's defense of Cato Neimoidia.

During the Battle of Ringo Vinda, a HMP droid gunship deployed several buzz droids to disable a shuttle that was carrying clone trooper CT-5385 "Tup" back to Kamino. After the ship was disabled, Separatist forces captured Tup for Count Dooku to personally examine.

During the Battle of Coruscant, several buzz droids attacked General Skywalker's and General Obi-Wan Kenobi's Eta-2 Actis-class interceptors. The buzz droids destroyed Kenobi's astromech, R4-P17, but they were finished off by Skywalker and R2-D2.

Four years after the rise of the Galactic Empire, the Free Ryloth Movement modified large numbers of buzz droids to explode. Stored inside modified vulture droids, they were used to attack the Imperial-class Star Destroyer Perilous over Ryloth.

Prior to the Battle of Jakku, undercover 204th Imperial Fighter Wing Lieutenant Palal Seedia released a swarm of buzz droids intended to incapacitate the New Republic Star Destroyer Deliverance, but the sabotage only managed to kill an engineer and the captain of the Deliverance.
