The C-Viper droid was a streamlined version of the Viper probe droid produced by Arakyd Industries, and was used by the Galactic Empire.

The Arakyd C-Viper's arsenal featured a light blaster cannon, shock arms, self-destruct mechanism, and a shield generator. This droid was equipped with upgraded manipulator arms, upgraded sensitive receivers, sensors, detection systems, and scanners. It was primarily designed to operate as a security and tracking droid for public law enforcement agencies, and was considerably cheaper than the Viper model.
