Unlike most HK models, the HK-50s were designed around mass casuality attacks and sabotage. Originally intended to destroy Republic warships from the inside out, the HK-50s' 'philosophy of murder' was that murder is about "wanton slaughter" and "body count", causing as many casualties with the least amount of effort. In order to be more easily accepted onto and destroy Republic ships, they were left unpainted (as opposed to the rusty red colors of previous models), their vocabulators were improved by remove intimidating static, each had a powerful explosive installed in their chest as a last resort. They were programmed to be more polite, submissive acting (until their cover was blown), cooperative with one another to better coordinate attacks, and subtly destabilize negotiations to create violent outcomes.

However, due to being ordered to bring Surik back in one piece, the HK-50s were far more gentle and merciful towards her than anyone else. Using violence only as a last resort to bring her in and expressing relief when she survived their ambush on Telos IV unharmed.

A noticeable flaw in their design is they are prone to hint their true nature to would be targets, via indirect boasting of their actions and abilities, often followed by claiming the hint was either a sarcastic remark, a turn of phrase, or a malfunction in their vocabulator. Also, despite being capable of performing the functions of a protocol droid to better disguise themselves as one, they were noted as not following commands very well.
