|Unidentified B1 battle droid|
|Chronological and political information|
- "The Jedi has been spotted in the south hall."
- ―C-3PO speaking to this droid and a fellow one.
In 22 BBY, this battle droid along with a squad of droids accompanied viceroy Nute Gunray to the planet of Rodia on his Sheathipede-class transport shuttle, the Lapiz Cutter. After they arrived on the planet, this droid and a fellow one were tasked with guarding the Rodian communication center.
Later, senator Amidala managed to escape and sent protocol droid C-3PO to the communication center to call for clone reinforcements. On the way to the center, he met the two battle droid guards and distracted them with news that the Jedi, representative Jar Jar Binks in disguise, has been spotted nearby. Taking the controls, C-3PO contacted the clones on a restricted military frequency and called for immediate help. The battle droid guards then returned, realizing they had been fooled, and take C-3PO under arrest. The droid was later destroyed along with the rest of the battle droid squad by senator Amidala.
