In 22 BBY, 08 and other Separatist BX-series droid commandos were tasked with infiltrating the Galactic Republic Rishi Station on the Rishi moon and activate the "all-clear" signal, allowing for a surprise attack on the key Republic world of Kamino. 08 and the other droids used Droch-class boarding ships and a meteor shower to land near the base. After sneaking in and killing several clone troopers, the droids hard-wired the "all-clear" signal. The Republic survivors of the attack, CT-782 "Hevy," CT-1409 "Echo," and CT-27-5555 "Fives" managed to escape to the outside of the base.
Clone Captain CT-7567 "Rex" and clone marshal commander CC-2224 "Cody" arrived for a standard inspection, a droid disguised as a clone approached them in an effort to cancel the inspection. When Hevy alerted the clone officers with a droid attack flare, Rex shot and destroyed the disguised commando droid. They were subsequently ambushed and driven off the platform, with the Separatist droids believing that they were pulverized. Afterwards, 08 and two other droids, Unit 07 and 09, guarded the entrance to the base when Rex tricked them into opening the doors for Unit 26, a droid that was previously destroyed. When the doors opened, 08 and the other droids were destroyed, and the clones succeeded in recapturing the base, but not before a fleet of Separatist warships arrived overhead and deployed reinforcements.
