Battle droid squad 8252 was a B1 battle droid squad carried aboard a C-9979 landing craft. The squad was deployed during the[1] Invasion of Naboo in the year 32 BBY.[2] The young Jedi Obi-Wan Kenobi sneaked onboard the landing craft after escaping the Saak'ak. After disabling the craft's engines, Kenobi traveled through STAP Deployment Bay 8313 on his way to the airlock. Battle droid squad 8252 was tasked with preventing his escape.[1]

The squad confronted Kenobi in the deployment bay, and the young Jedi cut down all the droids in the squad. Kenobi then made his way to the elevator that led to a Multi-Troop Transport hangar and, subsequently, the ship's airlock.[1]
