"Look, good against remotes is one thing. Good against the living? That's something else."
―Han Solo to Luke Skywalker[src]

The Marksman-H training remote,[1] often referred to as a remote, was a type of droid used to train its user how to properly deflect blaster bolts with a lightsaber.[2]


Quick and unpredictable, they had multiple power levels, including lethal and sting.[6] They were also capable of being programmed for defensive purposes.[3]


The Jedi Order used remotes to train Jedi younglings during the waning days of the Galactic Republic.[7] During the reign of the Galactic Empire, the Imperial Army was known to use them as drones.[4]

En route to the planet Alderaan, burgeoning Jedi Luke Skywalker practiced against a Marksman-H remote, using his father's lightsaber. Though initially unable to block the remote's fire, he learned to rely on the Force when his mentor, Jedi Master Obi-Wan Kenobi, challenged Skywalker by blocking his sight.[2] Several decades later, rogue stormtrooper Finn happened upon a Marksman-H remote, stored in a brown bag, while looking for bandages to treat the injured Wookiee Chewbacca.[8]
