"With these new battle droids we built for you, you'll have the finest army in the galaxy."
Foreman Wat Tambor, to Count Dooku[src]

B2 super battle droids were an advanced battle droid used by the Confederacy of Independent Systems during the Clone Wars.[3] Super battle droids were much stronger than their predecessors, and they did not require a command system to operate, which gave the droids limited independence. Another improvement was their thick armor casing, which contained their fragile sensors. However, B2s were designed with simple processors, limiting their ability to formulate strategies. As a result, they relied on organic commanders or tactical droids in order to effectively operate.[5] Some were equipped with a cannon arm that could fire homing rockets.[9]

Having been developed before the onslaught of the Clone Wars, the first batch of B2s was put into operation on Geonosis, during the battle that started the conflict.[10]

The B2 droids continued to see action until the end of the Clone Wars, with a number of units serving aboard Grievous' flagship Invisible Hand during the Battle of Coruscant. All units were shut down following the execution of the Separatist Council, ending the Clone War in a victory for the newly-formed Galactic Empire.[11]

In 34 ABY, during the cold war a number of B2 units served as security droids on Cato Neimoidia.[8]

Behind the scenesEdit

B2 super battle droids first appeared in Star Wars: Episode II Attack of the Clones.[3] Originally, as seen in animatics for the film, the super battle droids were to dual wield E-5 blaster rifles instead of having a built-in wrist blaster.[12]
