The B1 grapple droid was a variation of the standard B1 battle droid used by the Trade Federation during the Invasion of Naboo. Instead of using blasters, their hands ended in claws which could block lightsabers. They were distinguished from their B1 battle droid cousins by the slate-gray coloring covering their entire bodies. They were also taller than the standard battle droid model. Their claws can lift up to 10 times their own weight. The design was produced because the Trade Federation wanted a dedicated close-range combat droid.
