Astromech droids

Postby OneEye589 » Tue Apr 06, 2010 5:15 pm

I have four R2-D2s now, and they just so happen to be the same color scheme as my United Peach Alliance army. I was wondering what ideas you guys had for these figures in a semi-futuristic setting (so not what the droids are actually used for in Star Wars). I'm drawing a blank.

Tecknishin (repairs vehicles) can act as a skill booster docked in a ship, Reparbot (medic for droids)

My brother once used them as kamikaze droids. You can use an astromech for almost any role you care to think of, but mine are usually combination medik/mechanix.
Just one random act of violence can brighten your day. Especially if it involves explosives.

lazer rifles? Solid shot is so much better!

I use them as Medik, Mechanik, lifemaking (out of random rubbish), Portal abusing, OTC weilding (up to 30 at once), Whoop Shooping, ultimatemuthafucka of awsometude, it only ever appeared once, came later in the game, made all the wreckaqe into a small army, and killed everything.

I recoomend against using this.
