"Master Windu, you have fought gallantly, worthy of recognition in the archives of the Jedi Order. Now it is finished."
―Dooku offers the Jedi the chance to surrender as 5TE watches[2]

5TE was a B2 super battle droid who fought for the Confederacy of Independent Systems during the battle between the Confederacy and the Jedi Order on the planet Geonosis in 22 BBY. It survived long enough to be amongst the droids who surrounded the Jedi strike team when Separatist leader Count Dooku offered them a chance of surrender.

5TE[3] was one of many B2 super battle droids, of the B-series battle droid line, built by Baktoid Combat Automata[1] to serve in the Confederacy of Independent Systems' Separatist Droid Army. It saw action during the battle on the planet Geonosis[2] in the year 22 BBY.[4] The droid fought in the battle between the Separatists and the Jedi strike team in the Petranaki arena, and was still fighting at the point that Count Dooku, the Sith leader of the Separatists, called all of the droids to cease fire on the remaining Jedi, who were surrounded. 5TE and the many other droids in the arena lowered their weapons, but when the Jedi Master Mace Windu refused to surrender to Dooku raised them again to fire. The arrival of the Grand Army of the Republic prevented the droids from executing the Jedi and recommenced the fighting.[2]


Like all B2 super battle droids, 5TE was armed with a dual built-in Laser cannon,[1] had red sensors and grey armor plating,[2] and stood at 1.93 meters tall.[1]

Behind the scenes[]

5TE first appeared in the 2002 film Star Wars: Episode II Attack of the Clones as one of many computer generated droids in the Geonosis battle scene. Due to the identical nature of all Super battle droids in the film it is impossible to know if 5TE appears in any shots apart from the one used for the card, and therefore not clear if it is destroyed on screen or at all. The droid was later named when it received its own card in the Sith Rising expansion of the Star Wars Trading Card Game released by Wizards of the Coast.
