Assassin droids were one of the most versatile and deadly Battle Droid types in history. It was used by the CIS, bounty hunters, (an Assassin Droid by the name of IG-88 was a bounty hunter himself!) and by many other people. Assassin Droids could be easily programmed for combat, pilot duty, guard duty, and commando missions. They can also handle almost any weapon with lots of skill. They were first released in 2008 in the 10188 Death Star and was placed in several other sets over the years. They were released in three colors, white, chrome, and black.
