- "You know you will soon be destroyed. I can't tell you how many times I've seen battle droids sliced in half by a lone Jedi."
- ―Senator Amidala and this droid.
In 22 BBY, this battle droid along with two others ambushed and apprehended Naboo senator Padmé Amidala while she was speaking to Onaconda Farr. The senator then tried to contact her companions, Jar Jar Binks and protocol droid C-3PO, but this droid stopped her and destroyed her comlink. She was then taken to the detention tower and this droid along with the other two guarded her until Nute Gunray arrived on the planet.
Later, the droids received a message that a Jedi was loose in the city, which gave senator Amidala an idea. She pretended that a Jedi had come into her cell and freed her to lure one of the droids to open her cell. One of the droids did believed her, opening her cell and walking inside, only to be overpowered by her moments later. The senator then fought and destroyed this droid and a fellow one and escaped.
