Spinnin on the Rim (SW EotE)
K4 Security Droid
The K4 security droid was a model of droid produced by the Rim Securities company. It was regarded as a dependable unit and was quite popular in the Outer Rim Territories, but was known to have difficulty targeting while moving quickly. K4 units were armored and equipped with an internal blaster rifle.
The K4 was a fourth degree security droid noted for its solid and dependable design. It was largely humanoid, possessing two arms and an elongated, boxy head. It stood on two autobalanced legs, on which it was able to move quite quickly. Its body was armored, and its left arm was equipped with an integrated blaster rifle.
While a solid design, the K4 had a small glitch that often caused its legs to move out of sync with its sensor system while the droid was moving at speed; this could be averted by regularly aligning and cleaning both the blaster rifle housing and the gyros within the droid’s autobalance legs, though a carefully placed blaster bolt could knock either component back out of alignment. This flaw was often thought to be a problem within the K4’s targeting package itself.
