The Mark I Sith war droid moved on four legs, and was armed with arm–mounted dual blaster cannons. They bore a strong resemblance to the droidekas employed thousands of years later by the Confederacy of Independent Systems during the Clone Wars. They appear to walk at a rather slower pace than other droids deployed at the time, most likely due to their heavy armor plating. On the contrary, Sith War Droids are capable of crossing much more rugged terrain than most regular droids of its time due to the pointed ends on their legs.
Unlike droidekas, Sith War Droids do not possess a shield or any primary defense. These droids, often seen in Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic trailers, were primarily attacked in the "head" of the droid, and were even shown to be weak to blasters.
