Twin built-in blaster cannons (2)
|Chronological and political information|
The W-series droideka was a model of droideka, and the successor of the P-series droideka. The droid's blaster arms were enlarged and a higher-yield blaster was used, which meant that they required more energy to operate. Due to this, the W-series rarely used their shield generators, which could be very energy consuming. This was also their weakness: they were vulnerable to blasterfire like any other battle droid without their shields. Despite this setback, however, the W-series was nonetheless an efficient unit on the battlefield with their enlarged, rapid-fire blasters. This droideka was also much taller than its predecessor. They were most notably deployed at the Battle of Geonosis. They were succeeded later on in the Clone Wars by the Q-series droideka.
