Prison Battle Droids were battle droids used by the Alliance to Restore the Republic as guards in its detention facilities. Their design was based on Cybot Galactica's CLL-8 binary load lifter, replacing its large hands with weapon systems.


In 1 ABY Prison Battle Droids guarded a detention facility in the hidden Rebel Alliance base on Corellia. When the base was discovered by an Imperial agent sent by Mara Jade, at least three Prison Battle Droids were destroyed during the agent's infiltration of the detention facility.

Behind the scenesEdit

Prison Battle Droids are non-player characters (NPC) in the MMORPG Star Wars Galaxies. They were added with the Empire Day live event of 2009. One of the quests of this event sent Imperial players to the Rebel prison on Corellia where they had to kill various Rebel NPCs, including three of these droids.

The game model used for this droid class was first used for various droids, such as AK-1A "Hammer", on Mustafar in Star Wars Galaxies' third expansion, Trials of Obi-Wan.
