The B2 Super Battle Droid (SBD) was an upgraded version of the B1 Battle Droid, with superior armament and armor. B2s were used by the Trade Federation, the Techno Union, and later, on a much larger scale, the Confederacy of Independent Systems. The Galactic Alliance also used some B2 units during the Yuuzhan Vong War.

General

The Super Battle Droid (or SBD) operates somewhat differently from most other classes in MB2. First off, it has only one weapon - the built in twin-barrel Arm Blaster. Secondary Fire is a slap using the non-firing arm, and is capable of hitting opponents in both the standing and crouching stances. The slap cannot be used while reloading the blaster.

Additionally, the SBD uses an internal battery to charge it's weapons and defensive systems. This is represented on the HUD as a green bar on the left side. The more charge the battery retains, the better the SBD is able to operate - damage taken will be reduced, its firing rate is higher, its walking/running speed will be higher, and knockdown weapons (e.g. nades) and force push/pull can be resisted when the battery is at high levels.

Battery power is drained by use of the primary weapon (your arm-blaster), running, or being hit. The battery can recharge in two ways: Over time (by standing still or walking), or via the use of Battery Charge Mode (Special-1).

The SBD is very slow when compared to other classes movement abilities. Moving backwards is extremely slow for the SBD. The SBD is also unable to move while crouching.

Finally, The SBD (along with the Droideka) is especially vulnerable to the Pulse Grenade. When hit, the SBD is slowed down to its walking speed, its weapons clip is drained, it cannot fire for a short duration, and it also takes more damage than usual for a short duration. Battery is only slightly drained. The secondary slap can still be used.

Wookie slap will knockdown SBDs no matter the battery level. Wookies are also able to melee kata SBDs.

Class Specials

Special 1 - Battery Recharge Mode

Toggles Battery Recharge Mode. Going into this mode causes the SBD to be unable to attack and restricts movement to walking speed. (Friendly warning: DO NOT BACKPEDAL while in this mode or you will be slower than a half-dead, slightly drunk snail.) This has the effect of making you vulnerable to attack. However, your battery recharges at a higher rate than normal.

  • In Battery Recharge Mode (HOLD special 2 key): Ammo to battery. Allows you to transfer power by converting ammo from your arm blaster clip to power for your battery.
