Cybot was a third-degree 3PO-series protocol droid bounty hunter that was active during the years 5 and 10 ABY. Cybot had gold-colored plating as well as yellow and orange photoreceptors. The droid stood 1.7 meters tall and wielded weapons such as a Bryar pistol, an E-11 blaster rifle, a carbonite gun, and thermal detonators.
Behind the scenesEdit
Cybot first appeared in Star Wars: Jedi Knight: Dark Forces II, a video game that was released on September 30, 1997, with the droid's sole appearance being in the game's multiplayer mode as a playable character. Cybot later appeared in Jedi Knight's expansion pack, Star Wars: Jedi Knight: Mysteries of the Sith, which was released on February 24, 1998. Mysteries of the Sith introduced "multiplayer personalities," a form of character creation that put different playable characters under different professions. Each profession under this system had its own set of starting weapons for a match. Cybot, who in Mysteries of the Sith was identified simply as "Protocol droid," was categorized as a bounty hunter. Cybot's multiplayer model was based on the standard player model, but the model's texture was a modified version of the texture set used on Jedi Knight's and Mysteries of the Sith's basic protocol droid non-player character.
