"Longshot!"
―Clone Commander CC-2224 "Cody" after Longshot's death[src]

"Longshot" was the nickname of a clone trooper who served the Grand Army of the Republic during the Clone Wars with the 212th Battalion.

Biography[edit | edit source]

Longshot was one of the many clones created on Kamino.[1][3] He was a soldier in the 212th Attack Battalion.[3]

Infiltrating the Citadel[edit | edit source]

When separatist forces captured Jedi Master Even Piell and imprisoned him in the Citadel, a prison on the planet Lola Sayu the Republic mounted a rescue. Longshot was one of the clones assigned to the rescue team under Jedi Obi-Wan Kenobi and Anakin Skywalker to infiltrate the prison. The group was frozen in carbonite and used reprogrammed droids and a stolen separatist shuttle to get them on Lola Sayu without being detected by the life-form scanners.[3]

Longshot is killed

Once the group was unfrozen, they free-climbed a wall covered with electro mines to sneak into the Citadel via a small entrance. Unfortunately, a fellow trooper hit one of the mines, which alerted the warden of their presence, who proceeded to activate the facility's security protocols. Inside the facility the group took out some laser turrets and surveillance. This activated an electric field that moved across the hall towards the group. While the other team members quickly managed to take cover in the side halls, Longshot was caught by the field, which dragged him along before dropping him, electrocuting and killing him.[3]

Personality and traits[edit | edit source]

As a clone of Jango Fett, Longshot stood at 1.83 meters.

Equipment[edit | edit source]

Longshot utilized white Phase I clone trooper armor and a standard DC-15A blaster carbine.

Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]

In the episode, Longshot was voiced by Dee Bradley Baker, who voices all clone troopers through the series.

  2. Star Wars: Galactic Atlas dates the events "Ghosts of Mortis" and "Water War" to 20 BBY. As the episode "The Citadel" takes place between the two episodes according to StarWars.com Star Wars: The Clone Wars Chronological Episode Order on StarWars.com (backup link), Longshot's death must take place in that year.
