View Full Version : STATS 4NK Droid

I designed this droid to assist patrols in an area the players were attempting to infiltrate. The sensors and communications arrays were particularly bothersome to the players since they were constantly having to avoid sensor sweeps and since being detected meant the entire base being alert. In all, it made an excelling roaming obstacle for the players to avoid.

Model Order Arms 4NK Artillery droid.
The 4NK Artillery Droid was designed to provide a mobile artillery piece for ground patrol smaller than the AT-AT, and capable of passing through difficult terrain. The design is reminiscent of a large metal dewback.

Interesting design. Looks pretty good.
Is their a price tag for this droid, or is it sold only to the Empire?
Thanks for sharing, too.

I hadn't considered price, because it isn't the sort of thing a player is likely to carry with them as it doesn't fit conveniently into most ships or vehicles, and it's really pretty slow as means of transportation go. Since it's a droid designed to kill, owning one is, of course, illegal. However, legality is not something a determined player considers when purchasing equipment. So, due to limited availability and procurement difficulties, I'd probably say you could pick one up on the black market for no less than 30,000 credits Imperial.
