- "Do you always carry a deactivator?"
"Just because I'm a pacifist doesn't mean I won't defend myself!"
"Now you sound like a Jedi."
- ―Obi-Wan Kenobi and Duchess Satine Kryze fighting off assassin droids
A deactivator hold-out pistol fired a blast of energy that deactivated any droid hit by its bolt. Despite its small size, it could also be a deadly weapon.
During the Clone Wars, the Duchess of Mandalore's personal starship, the Coronet, was attacked by assassin probes and probe killers. Duchess Satine Kryze produced a small handheld deactivator from her sleeve and proceeded to fire at the small probe killers, disabling several with each shot. While on Coruscant, Duchess Satine used her deactivator to disable a police probe, which was following her after she had been framed for murder.
