- "They're shutting down all the controls!"
- ―Obi-Wan Kenobi, during the Battle of Coruscant
The Pistoeka sabotage droid, also known as the buzz droid, was a model of sabotage droid manufactured by Colicoid Creation Nest. They were used by the Confederacy of Independent Systems during the later stages of the Clone Wars for purpose of disabling enemy craft and were the successor to the Mark One Pistoeka sabotage droid. They were transferred to enemy fighters via specialized discord missiles, and popped open to reveal their insect-looking body. They operated quickly, using their tools of vandalism, such thing as cutters. While their tools were effective, the central eye was a weak spot which could take the buzz droid out of commission when hit. Eight years after the rise of the Galactic Empire, the Free Ryloth movement modified large amounts of buzz droids to explode. Stored inside modified vulture droids, they were used to attack the Imperial-class Star Destroyer Perilous over Ryloth.
During the Clone Wars, buzz droids were used by the Confederacy of Independent Systems. During a incident at Carida, a super tactical droid sent several buzz droids to destroy the remaining droids of a Venator-class Star Destroyer and D-Squad.
