"All by yourself? Not a problem."
Obi-Wan Kenobi encountering a super battle droid rocket trooper[src]

B2 super rocket troopers, also known as B2 Rocket Troopers or super battle droid rocket troopers, were upgraded B2-RP super battle droids used by the Separatist Alliance in the last stages of the Clone Wars.

Characteristics[]

The B2 super rocket troopers[5] were a variant of the B2-series super battle droid that served as a refinement of the B2-RP super battle droid.[6] The model featured a jetpack composed of two bulky thrusters attached to the shoulders, supplemented with smaller thrusters attached to the droid's ankles. The battle droids were armed with wrist-mounted laser cannons with four barrels each. The droids also had red sensors.[3]

History[]

B2 Rocket Troopers were used during the Battle of Ringo Vinda. They were used alongside the droidekas in a final push that forced the Republic army to fall back, after Jedi Master Tiplar had been killed by the damaged clone trooper "Tup."[3]

B2 Rocket Troopers were later assigned the task of breaking into a Republic shuttle, alongside an HMP droid gunship and some Pistoeka sabotage droids to abduct Tup, who had been responsible for the Jedi's death. The droids swiftly eliminated all other clones in the craft, while the Buzz droid freed Tup. They were able to bring Tup to Admiral Trench, and they later guarded the shuttle piloted by Kraken until it left.[3] The model also saw action in the Battle of Anaxes.[7]

Behind the scenes[]

The B2 rocket trooper features as an adversary in the third phase of the Tank Takedown raid event in the video game Star Wars: Galaxy of Heroes. Summoned by General Grievous to defend a damaged Armored Assault Tank on Geonosis, the rocket trooper leads a squad of B1-series battle droids.
